At the beginning of the school year, I always set a little goal for myself. This year I decided I want this to be my motto:
I watched a little clip recently about a humble and poor woman who weaves for a living. Dewitt Jones is a National Geographic photographer who interviewed her. He asked her, "What do you think about as you weave?" and she responded, "When I weave, I weave."
I thought that was the best thing I had ever heard!
I decided right then and there that whatever I do, body and mind I'll be all there. It's easy to do half crap jobs. We feel pressured to multi-task.
When I work, I work. When I'm with people I love, I'm with people I love (no phone, no tv, no computer, no distractions). When I'm home at night, I'm home, relaxing not working. When I'm in a relationship, I'm in it. When I'm on vacation, I'm chilling out under an umbrella in my swimmysuit (hopefully).
I posted my new print in my room to remind me. So here's to my 2012-2013 goal. We'll give it a shot!
