Battle Plan 2015
This month the Janes — at the suggestion of Jane Asa — are discussing BATTLE PLANS! Doesn’t that sound much more inspiring than “goals” or god forbid “resolutions”? I already feel more energized. Or maybe I mean combative. Of course a woman who writes about Viking warriors (coming out this year!) has battle plans 🙂 Thanks for the topic, Asa.
During this last week or so, I’ve been following the 2015 plans of my friends, family, and compatriots. I like to see what other people are doing/thinking of doing because it gives me ideas. What I think is interesting this year is the tenor of the plans. In years past, I’ve always seen a certain amount of “this year I’m going to learn to relax/meditate/take it easy/stop worrying”. This year, I’ve seen almost none of that. It’s like we’ve all just admitted we kinda like the rat race. We revel in the battle!
Since my to-do list is already longer than a bastard sword, I guess it’s a good thing that I too have committed to the fight. My scheduled bibliography of books to write goes to Christmas 2015 and beyond. And I still have things on my list from 2013 that I am determined to conquer. (Curse you, closet organization!) My community center has a new list of exercise classes, a couple of which might actually interest me. Though no jousting, sadly.
There’s just too much I want to accomplish to not go forth boldly and seize the day. Or as Calvin & Hobbes used to say, seize the day and throttle it! Seize all of 2015! That’s what gauntlets are for, after all.
If you want to commit to some bold action this year, please share it in comments this month. Words have their own power, so write it down here and then make a copy for yourself to post somewhere where it can inspire you to act.
Here’s wishing all of you a bold, rewarding new year!
