got into a great conversation with my sons that ended up being something
to take into our thinking about the coming new year.
we were talking about 'identities.'
everyone's got 'em. you know.....what you think of yourself as -
mother, sister, daughter, wife, artist, buddhist, yoga master,
healer, boxer, great driver, fast thinker........
and we all have multiple identities.
and interestingly enough, they don't have to be all good.
which caught me by surprise til i thought about that.
you can be a slow learner, a bad cook, a messy housekeeper,
a gardener with a black thumb.......
so we were talking about these.
and what we thought ours were.
that in itself is a great topic.
and then we talked about what identities we would LIKE to have, but don't.
ooooooohhh. that's a cool question.
and we all agreed that we could pick an identity if we wanted to,
and work towards it during the year.
is that not a great idea?!
i thought it was an interesting twist on new year's resolutions!
how about new year's identities!
what are the ones you carry now?
which ones would you like to enhance?
which ones would you like to put down?
and which ones would you like to pick up?
could be fun!
thought it was perfect timing to offer the thought......
