Listen up 2022
Finally, a Listicle!
What I want in 2022.
To open up time to be more creative by not watching other people being creative. I’m looking at you YouTube. I mean I’m not looking at you YouTube.
To have a spiritual opening and closing of my day. Morning meditation, evening prayers. Something to bookend each day with spirituality, connection.
I deeply desire planting a garden oasis in my backyard.
To finish clearing out the garage, the basement, the nooks and crannies filled with too many things waiting for me to free them and myself from their uselessness.
To be more intentional. To have intentions. To act intentionally on my intentions.
To drive more to see friends and nurture those relationships. I do hate driving and am a recluse but if I continue to not make the effort it will probably lead to the end of invitations and the withering away of relationships.
To go to Ireland.
To overcome the trickery of my mind. Stop using too many qualifiers in my thinking and writing. Make decisions and act on them. Full stop.
To use my hands to make things, despite my arthritic thumb.
To learn from my mentors: Laurie Anderson, Joan Didion, Joni Mitchell, AmyTan, Emma Thompson, Eckhart Tolle and all the others.
To listen more keenly to what is blowing in the wind.
To step into my purpose and live it like a MoFo.
