The whole "I've got nothing to say" has been on my mind a lot recently. I jumped on Twitter the other day and was really surprised at the number of followers I have there. I'm flummoxed as to why people follow me and I'm finding that the more people follow me, the less I seem to have to say. Maybe it's stage fright. I should just post a song link and get over it...I'm sure I will (because if you follow me there, you likely already know I often, way-too-often, suffer from foot in mouth stream of consciousness diarrhea...sorry about that).
But what's a poker playing talky girl to do when she's not playing poker, and not doing much of anything, really?
I know the end of the year is supposed to be a time of introspection. A time to think back on what was good and bad, and a time to set goals. But somehow, in the midst of getting the house ready, and having family over, and celebrating Christmas and then the New Year, I failed to make any time for all that. We're into day three here, people, and I still haven't really done it.
Instead, what has been on my mind is how I feel I have nothing to say...and this continual looping thread of a line - "We are what we repeatedly do."
I guess I'm (finally?) coming to the realization that some (much?) of what I've been repeatedly doing is, well, not so good. And I want to change that.
Everybody hates resolutions, right? But goals are important. Having missed my goal in November for NaNoWriMo, I know how important they are (and I also know one thing I'd most definitely like to do, repeatedly, better - follow through on goals *ahem*).
So...here's my stream-of-consciousness-wanting for myself in the New Year:
Put down the iPhone (or the FaceBook or the Twitter or the TV or the game) more
Walk the loop, every day
Read some more
And live some more. Repeatedly.
And then, maybe, you'll (me) have something to say.
The specifics, the quantifiable objectives, I'll save for me. But yeah...I think that's the gist of what I'm aiming for this year.
How about you?
And by the way, Happy (belated) New Year!
