When I was a kid I was told that I asked for too much -
that I would never be happy unless I learned to love what I already had.
And there is some truth in this.
There is also truth in the fact that the passionate life does not settle.
It reaches. It stretches. It needs to know and see and feel those things that are just beyond its grasp.
At heart I am a "settler inner" - I get cozied in and cannot be prodded to make a change until life forces me to get moving.
But 2011 is my year of deciding and I need to start moving all those things that I am not passionate about out of the way to make room for the good stuff - the really, really good stuff that is waiting for me.
I am starting with my closets. I am starting today.
(well, maybe tomorrow, I am still kind of sick)
