Is it true what they say, "Red Sky at morning Sailors take warning?" Or "Red Skies at night, Sailors delight?" Either way, wouldn't it be nice if they cancelled each other out? I mean, why the fuss? Does there need to be delight only to be brought down by dire circumstances and vice versa? Why not be happy with plain vanilla?
I guess the New Year has me thinking, of course. So many people so full of good intentions. I'm not saying that I don't have any. I guess I just want to stay the course. Nothing dramatic. One could say, the middle path, or that Goldilocks "just right" kind of place. We have had a nice year, 2011. Pleasant. A few bumps here and there, but really I'm so grateful to say that we've been able to aright ourselves and stay the course.
I know so many people that had dramatic years. Big changes, big surprises. After being there to witness their journeys, I guess I'm asking to get my knocks in small, manageable, bit-size pieces. I'm good with that. Little challenges that encourage me to grow, without getting the wind knocked out of me.
Is it too much to ask for?
