OK, my next goals-track challenge is to make a wish list for 2014:
Write a wish list for the next year.
Okay, this should be fun! It says UNCENSORED!
So that means I can write down everything I want, even if it's absurd, right?
My uncensored wish list:
I want radiant good health!
I want world peace!
I want happiness, joy and serenity.
I want abundant love and friendship.
I want satisfaction and fulfillment.
I want to finish Uncertain Weather, at least a first draft.
I want to finish AND PUBLISH (at least at Shutterfly) Frankie and Noah Have a Party.
I want to prepare for NaNoWriMo 2014 even if I don't do it.
I want to COMPLETE my projects. Large and small.
I want to get Frog Haven ready to send out again.
I want to sleep well at night and wake well in the morning and be alert during the day. I would like to be free from insomnia.
I want to be able to sing.
I want to have less pain pain and suffering for myself and others.
I want meaningful conversation.
I want time with others (love and friendship, real face time) balanced with positive solitude and working time.
I would like to balance working time with relaxation.
I would like to worry less. ("What, me worry?")
I would like to feel less overwhelmed. (Sleeping better might help with that.)
I want ecological health for the world.
OK, I am identifying three things, not two: HEALTH, COMPLETION and LOVE/FRIENDSHIP.
Here comes the procrastination part, though. I am working on health. Need to continue working and take further steps. And I am working on friendship/love, although my tiredness and pain-induced crankiness doesn't help.
What I need to do for the next step in completing Uncertain Weather is to reread it, a major project, since I've gotten out of touch over the holidays. And I do not want to start the next painting for Frankie and Noah until the next Mole arrives--OR--until I finish my gift cards, anyway. I am way behind on that.
There were flocks of robins at Pier Park the day before yesterday. I know they stay all winter, but seeing them still represents hope to me.
