new leaves

I'm already turning them over.

I know, I know. I don't do resolutions. but I decided in reviewing last year, that I need to do some things a little differently in the future.

after all, doing the same things over and over again and expecting different results is Ben Franklin's definition of insanity. and I need to do all I can to keep my sanity.

and so, I'm expanding my possibilities. I'm making calls I usually wouldn't. I'm not making calls I typically would have.

I don't know yet if anything will come of these changes. but they feel good, so far.

and although I don't typically regret things I have done, I have occasionally regretted things I have not done. so most of these new leaves baring their undersides are along those lines.

I'm trying to be a little less cautious. no, don't worry. I'm not going to get reckless. I'm just usually overly cautious, and would like to see if things turn out differently if I take a few more risks. be a little more spontaneous.

this all started before the calendar switched. I threw caution to the wind a time or two near the end of last year. and maybe the risks haven't worked out as I had hoped. but maybe they still will.

but either way, at least I know I can expand my possibilities a little and still be myself.

Dance like nobody's watching....live how it feels good to you! Be true to yourself, that's the best possibility you can afford for yourself. :)

i also have found that any regrets i have are from something i didn't do, rather than something i did.
