|Me - hard at work, no hammer is too small!|
No question is too difficult...
On January 1st I posed a few questions at the end of my post. I suggested that you might like to answer them yourself, and even throw them into a post…
Well, seems like my good buddy Bushman got with the program and did just that - thanks!
You can drop by and check out his answers (they are at the bottom of his great post, a worthy read) and then pop back here and see if I copied him!!
Without further ado - here are the questions… and my titillating answers. (and can you just feel the grin on my face)
Did you accomplish what you had set out to do in 2013?
For the most part - yes!
I had two objectives - one, renovate my house and the other, renovate me.
As to the house - it will occupy my thoughts again this year!
As to me - success!
I set out to reshape my body and regain my youthful energy to which I am happy to report I have done just that. My objective for coming years is to maintain my efforts.
Are you happy with your journey so far?
I am! Really that sums it up.
But, for those wanting a bit more meat on the bone here’s the 411 - as my general countenance is “happy” no journey is ever less than that.
Hence I am happy, journey or no journey.
Will 2014 be “the year”? What does that even mean to you?
2014 is just a number. Shockingly enough I’m in awe that I’ve made it to this number without
being incarcerated much to complain about.
It means this is the number I’m living in, at present, so I’ll do my best to stay in it and not drift back into the past with wishful refections, nor look too longingly into the future at what may or may not come my way.
Did you make any resolutions? Have you made the same ones before?
(I love using “no” like that - all by itself, on a limb, just waiting for other words to come along and keep it company - alas it will shiver in the open - alone, but brave, and not needing to lock a door either - eh, Al)
Why is the first of January different than the first of any other month? Or is it?
I’m partial to the firsts of all months and will on occasion use one as a benchmark of sorts.
Mostly, going rogue, I will randomly select a date, with the help of a dart and my calendar, and start something without rhyme nor reason in the middle of the month.
Now that’s living on the edge.
And… last but not least…
If you could change one thing about “you” what would it be?
If you only knew me personally - you’d understand this answer…
I’m as close to perfect as the gods could make me - therefore I cannot risk their wrath by ever entertaining the thought of tampering with near-perfection. It could backfire and then what… I’d be like… you know… like, average!
YIKES - not in this lifetime!
And… if you’ve read this correctly you’ll understand that to me perfection lies in one’s ability to laugh.
Those that can laugh at themselves, with others, and in the face of adversity are truly lucky and blessed for they get to grow old with happy lines etched on their faces.
What else could the gods be thinking when aiming for perfection…
“Laugh and the world laughs with you, cry and you cry alone” - does this mean anything to you?
