December 6 – Make.
What was the last thing you made? What materials did you use? Is there something you want to make, but you need to clear some time for it? (Author: Gretchen Rubin)
I used my voice, the voices of others, my talent, the talent of others. I used friendship and compassion and cooperation and creativity and understanding. I used patience and breath, colour and movement, spirit and soul. I used everything that was right in my day, and I swirled it all together in harmony.
I’m a maker by nature. Creativity is such an essential part of who I am that I get the urge to make things all the time, whether it’s a new recipe, a birthday card, a scarf, a necklace, a song, Ikea furniture. You name it, and chances are, I’d like to try my hand at making it.
But in the coming year, I’d like to make decisions. And as fate would have it, I just managed to make one very big decision that has conveniently cleared up a lot of time to allow me to pay attention to those other decisions I want to make. I want 2011 to be about clarity. I want to dedicate time to really thinking about what my next steps are in my life and in my business.
Oh, and I want to learn how to make my grandmother’s apple pie. Because decisions are so much easier to make when there’s pie.
