"give me one wild word to follow...."
those of you who have been following me for a while know that i don't make the typical resolutions
because you know, and i know all too well, i'll never ban sugar or carbs nor will i set up a list of goals
for an entire year that are bound to fall through leaving me feeling like a quitter--which i'm not...i'm simply flexible.
what has really worked for me over the past few years is to follow terry tempest williams and choose one "wild word" to guide me throughout the year. last year my word was "pages." this worked for me...i began to write and write and write both for school and for my personal life. so much has been put down on paper--which means the scary part is here:
this year i mean to take maya angelou's words to heart and lift the meaning of my words off of the page and deep into humanity. i've known for years that my voice has been broken due to fear and mistrust of myself. now, today, in 2013 i'm more than ready to speak up because it's all been pent up for so long. i'm ready to transition from good to something more far-reaching.
i'm especially hoping for time to raise my voice more here on the blog, and create opportunities for all of you to raise your voice as well. our voices will wake, and we will indeed move mountains.
here's to 2013 and the voice!
