I’m going to just go ahead and make the executive decision to roll January in to 2010 and claim the New Year starts tomorrow. Or maybe on the 3rd. Maybe the Chinese have it all figured out. I don’t really know.
It’s not that January was all that bad … it just wasn’t the stellar start I was looking for … new beginnings–clean slates–and all. Instead, it was just sort of this lingering greyness of winter. Lack of motivation. Illness. Boredom.
There was the President’s State of the Union Address. That was a highlight, I suppose. In a Go-Fight-Win sort of way. It actually inspired me to refocus my energies on business development endeavors and improving education. Which I plan to tackle right after my garden is planted, while my household goods continue to be minimized, and right before I develop my own cleaning products.
Keep in mind that I’m kind of an idea girl now, so I’m full of great ideas for how other people can change the world. Maybe I should start a newsletter or something. “1,000 Ways Other People Can Change the World.” That has a nice ring to it, doesn’t it? Always trying to be helpful. That’s my motto.
But, enough complaining. That’s not what you come here for. You come here for inspiration. Minimization Inspiration, right?
Well, I have to tell you. The stars are going to have to align to get me motivated again. Here’s what I’m looking for this week … forward progress, good news, and that damn Groundhog to come out and play.
