The Tao of Me

This is the first sunrise of 2010 from my art room window.  I captured it on my camera around 0710, and it is amazing.  Hopefully this bodes well for how the rest of the year will be.  Speaking of the rest of the year, most people are bringing up resolutions today.  I never like making them, for they are usually superficial and don't last more than a week, if only a few days.  This year I have a resolution of sorts.  I plan to just be.  I don't want to plan to be happier, luckier, faster, healthier, prettier, or anything more than what I am.  I will just be me and see what happens.  I want to just feel that who I am is enough, and stop chasing down crazy expectations that lead to disappointment and depression.  This is not to say I will stop improving on myself, but if it is meant to be then I will be it.  A quote out of one of my all-time favorite books leads off this year for me:

While Eeyore frets
And Piglet hesitates
and Rabbit calculates
and Owl pontificates
Pooh just is.

-The Tao of Pooh, Benjamin Hoff

I just want to be.



  1. What a beautiful picture and a great way to start off the new year. Sounds like a resolution worth keeping :)

  2. Thank you! It was a beautiful morning here in Colorado, I just took the photo. :) Hopefully this year I will make it through with my resolution in tact on the other side. Happy New Year to you!
