I think I am going to pay all my bills today
just so I can write 1/1/11 over and over - it feels so much like a do-over year to me - a year when anything can happen!
We managed to be awake at midnight
(but only because a stinkbug crashed into our ceiling, sending me flying for the lightswitch and Olive running under the bed - yes, the stinkbugs are back - if anyone has any stinkbug prevention tips let me know - we can't seem to figure out where they are getting in)
and someone on our street was setting off fireworks, very brave of them with the new state trooper station across the road.
I had a couple people email me about a previous post where I said something like our businesses are either busy growing or they're busy dying.
I definitely did not mean to imply that we have to have a big business. I think a small, profitable
(and there are kinds of profit other than monetary profit although monetary profit is usually pretty important at some point in the life of a business)
business is a wonderful, miraculous thing we should all be proud of. Maybe instead of growth I should have used the word change.
Because I could see where growth might infer something getting bigger and bigger which does not have to be our intention at all with this creative thing we are growing.
(oops there is that word again)
I do think that when you create something from your heart you give it one thing and it gives you back another thing and this process is about growth even if nothing ever gets any bigger ....
Anyhoo, I hope everyone gets to write 1/1/11 at least once today!
