Good things Thu 21 Jan 10

I love reading Cathy over at Tinniegirl's posts ... and her post on Tuesday entitled Lists are Good was a really good one.

And the most interesting part was her offer to make a wish for something to happen this year ... and she would be the keeper of the wish.

Everyone who adds a wish to the list will go into the draw for this very cute collage ... the perfect piece of art to keep me on track.

At first I bailed .... keeping a list smacks of work ... and I mean paid, professional work ... and I steer away from lists once I leave work.

But the thing I like about time ... time to think things over and look at it from other points of view .... is that I quickly saw the value of a sort of global catch all, a motherhood statement maybe, that sums up what I want to achieve this year.

My wish, and I love it, is ... EXPLORE.

I feel as though I've put my finger on everything I've been thinking of as important this year ... the New Year's Plans I made and the goal to find something good in every day all stems from wanting to engage the world more.

Thanks Cathy. I feel as though I've tidied up the loose ends for this year and it's all ahead of me.
