Come hell or full circle
Our arms fill with miracles
Play hearts, kid, they work well
Like classics play aces
Stay with me, go places
Once more for the ages.
Looking ahead, I know I will be geared for the adventuring to come. I hope I'm also filled with hope. Aside from literally going to new places, I want to discover more about myself and grow as a person. (Raises finger to mouth in an uck gesture.) Perhaps this will also mean that I become less cynical and don't feel ridiculous for talking about the whole self/new discovery thing.
A lot of people say they come to the city to take advantage of its myriad opportunities. There's so much alive and happening here. And while this drives me, it's also important that I pull myself out of my comfort zone. While I can easily do this when trying a new recipe or restaurant or traipsing through a new neighborhood, I don't always do this socially (at least not with ease). My goal in the coming year is to be more social and also to not worry so much about what other people think. And as arbitrary dates/markers seem silly to me, this doesn't have to start with Jan. 1. It's something I want to consciously work on from now on.
In ways, I feel like this blog is helping me with that. No longer second guessing if my opinions are valid or worth hearing, I'm just putting them out there, sharing my passion with folks who may be interested in similar things. And it feels good to write in my own voice without someone else telling me it isn't good enough.
