4. Deciding on a song for your life’s anthem, is not easy. I am seeing a crew of my favorite friends in two months, and the non-game player of our circle has decided to become a game planner. Not only are we shocked by her transformation, she instructed each of us to come with our anthem, the pressure.
5. It is easy to forget how God always comes through. I almost gave myself whiplash trying to find God in a recent situation, but He was there. He’s always there.
6. Instead of giving up, start over. I hate starting over. It’s the reason I refuse to play Chutes and Ladders with my kids. In Chutes and Ladders, players make it all the way to the top of the board, and then for no good reason, land on a chute, and are sucked all of the way back down to square eleven. If starting over in a board game gets me this jazzed up, imagine what starting over in life does. Anyway, I am starting over with one of my goals. It’s a daily goal, and it’s hard, and I feel as if I am sitting in square eleven.
7. Rainbow Loom bands aren’t just pieces of plastic you should vacuum up. If you have tweens, you know words like Fishtail, Triple Single, and Railroad. In addition, if you know these words, you will want to come back tomorrow so I can share about a cool service project which all loomers in your house will love.
8. I miss #RiskRejection, and therefore, it is going to be a monthly delay-o. In January, a group of us shared about the risks we were taking. It didn’t matter the size of our risk or if we were winning or losing. I miss that gentle shove to live big. Therefore, this Thursday, March 6th, we are starting up #RiskRejection again. You can find details here. Check back on Thursday if you are interested, write along with us, and tell us about your risks.
9. People must sleep. No brainer for you, but if I am in need of a chunk of time, I cut it from my sleep category.
10. Writing a book is like sitting up with a dying friend. I did not make this up, Annie Dillard did, but it’s insanely accurate. We write and our ideas contain multiple disorders. Disorders we can’t figure out and have no idea how to fix. Often, it makes us feel helpless.
I do not so much write a book as sit up with it, as with a dying friend. During visiting hours, I enter its room with dread and sympathy for its many disorders. I hold its hand an hope it will get better. ~Annie Dillard
11. Chocolate bunnies are not born. No, chocolate bunnies are made, and you watching them being made is fun and very Charlie and the Chocolate Factory-ish. Although the entire time you watch, you may think about what it would be like to lick a giant bowl of chocolate.
Your turn. Tell me something February has taught you. Tell me what song you would chose for your life’s anthem. Share your thoughts about wigs, Jimmy Fallon, or Rainbow Loom. Tell me your favorite way to play tourist in your hometown, or tell me how God is coming through for you.
