Lucy asked me yesterday if the world will explode in 2012 (because her friend said so....)
-'no Lucy, it won't'-
'But mom you did say once that the planet will explode one day'-
-'In millions of years from now'-
...Then there was some strange calculating in her head...and she said:
'So the world will start all over again and maybe the dinosaurs will return- ...- so maybe I will get the chance to do first and second grade again and correct my mistakes and get better grades...'-
What I find so funny here, is not the irrationality of the thinking process, (its magical and imaginative), but the very deep human need to correct one's wrongdoing, the desire for a second chance, the regrets of an eight-year-old...
Talking about regrets, I have decided to approach resolutions differently this year, I will actually scale down my expectations. Better to focus on three or four things and do them best.
So in 2010 I will continue my study of cooking, and menu planning, but I will not make a vegetable garden.(next year)
I will focus on painting and learning as much as I can about the business side of art which is something I should have done ages ago.
I will try to keep a daily routine which is so very difficult for me but necessary and cost-effective really. I need to take small breaks when I get too tired and not be a perfectionist, not try to clean the whole house in one day with one breath, not paint the world right after... I will plan...
I will not diet. I will eat chocolate.
I will make my own bread. Lots of it.
I will blog. Love it.
I will definitely keep the daily walks.
Good luck with yours!
I hug you-
