And the Word Is…Support…

It’s a…bright…shiny…New Year…time to consider my…word of intention…for the year…I’m usually well settled on it by now…but…this has been a busy time…so…I’m still contemplating it a bit…

In the past…I’ve had…gentle…which had to do with how I treat myself…then…there was…shine…which had to do with really being myself…and some other…really good ones

I thought this year was going to be…evolve…and…I was really excited…I mean…really…who doesn’t want to…evolve

Unfortunately…Bertha…changed my word…seems as though it is now…support…which I’m finding is another way of saying…trust

What can I say…I balked…I whined…I complained…I refused to write blogs…I wanted my…evolve…back…that’s what I wanted to do this year…

Then…she reminded me…that…as I trust those who are close to me…and allow them to support me…and as I prove myself trustworthy to them by supporting them…I truly am…evolving…

Hmmm…that sounds right…but…I wonder if I can trust her…

Just What I Intended…

Bertha…pointed out something to me the other day…I tend to judge others by their actions…while I judge myself…by my intentions…

Hmmm…I wonder if that is why my Sweetie bought me the book…The Noticer…by Andy Andrews…who so poignantly mentioned that characteristic of some people…and…although Sweetie didn’t highlight that tidbit of wisdom…Bertha…most certainly did…

Honestly…I think she just used him…because he hadn’t read the book when he bought it for me…and said that it kind of just fell off the shelf…so I do suspect some foul play…but…I digress…

But…regardless of how the nugget arrived…I received it…and…have contemplated it for several days…and…have to admit…it’s true…I do just that…and…certainly…not just with my Sweetie

I’m just not certain…what to do about it…

Bertha…is all too happy to give me a few assignments…

First…quit intending…and…do…

Second…quit judging…and…accept…

Third…cut all of us some slack…

Well…looks like I have my work cut out for me…and…I intend to do it…really…
