For some reason the words that keep coming to my mind for 2013 are gratitude and play. Perhaps they will set the tone for the year.
It’s only afternoon and so far I can say that I’ve already been doing a fair amount of both. I just came from our New Year’s Day Pajama Party that was full of fun and hopeful energy for the new year. The fact that I jumped in my car today and got on the Merritt Parkway wearing polka dot pajamas, well, I’m certainly starting out the year with a mindset of playing.
Fortunately, I stayed well within the speed limit, lest I find myself in uncompromising situation while clad in my pj’s.
Upon my arrival at the Center I was surrounded by other people doing something good for their health, laughing, and yes, playing. I found myself looking around the room with a profound sense of gratitude for these people, as well as the dedicated, creative, special women with whom I work.
Gratitude and play. Sounds like a plan for 2013.
