On August 16th, 2002, I got my first two tattoos. In my own handwriting, create and action were tattooed on the back of my legs. While reading and journaling and planning in these dark days of the transitioning years, I am following suit of writers around the internet and choosing my word for the year: action.
This is already taking literal shape in my life. Ben and I have been taking our dogs for long walks every morning. Even in the below-freezing weather of this morning, we bundled the pups up and took them for a four mile walk around our neighborhood. It's a great way to both move the blood and spend quality time with my husband. He started doing this a few months ago, but I've loved joining in and look forward to this time every day.
Other plans focus mainly on Tin & Twine. I want to launch the etsy shop, and move into more retail space. Carving out time for this is my largest obstacle. Acting on these long-held plans will help me reach a major goal I've had for a few years.
In general I hope to extend this word to all of the year--to quit putting things off, laying plans to the side, or thinking there are things I can't do. Here's to a year of taking action!
p.s. It took me 6 days to post this. It didn't have pictures. It still doesn't, but I'm pressing publish.
