I have always maintained that my life is an on-going process; I am continually seeking new paths because I don't see myself as ever being finished to perfection...or even close. I am like an old house: As one problem is repaired, another demands attention. You know how it goes...painting the kitchen makes the cabinets look worn and weary. It's always something.
I've made my "evolutions" (not resolutions) for 2011, but a simple quote I came upon quite by accident a few days ago has made me realize that I need to do more than just work on my insides and the words that come out of my mouth.
Be the change you want to see in the world.
Action. That's what is missing. I am going to concentrate on two areas, for a start.
1. It's time I put my money where my mouth is. I am going to be politically active and donate to/actively support causes in which I believe. Enough of the just complaining.
2. I am going to give back to my community and volunteer. In fact, I have already taken the first steps. What took me so long?
More baby steps...
