Brendan it is sitting on my lap asking me about the metals on my desk. "Can I smell it?," he asks. "Of course!" is my response. After all, I smell metals myself. On my desk, I have pieces of a brass planter, which I have cut up and copper from a chafing dish also indelicately dismantled. I have been on a mission to repurpose metals fashioned for other uses. Really, are chafing dishes a hot commodity? Since I adore estate sales and a particular local on-line auction house, I am enjoying the hunt.
As I head into the new year, I reflect on 2011. I must say that I loved this year. Not because I was wildly successful in all my endeavors but that I showed up. While there we discouraging events, they were also opportunities to learn about myself and those around me. I must say, I prefer wildly successful to lesson learning. Honestly, who wouldn't. However, my life is exactly how I have chosen it to be. I made the choices. I reap the benefits and am responsible for what I show up with.
So, instead of re-learning last year's "lessons", I am going to repurpose them for my wild success! I must say this aloud to tell myself to keep moving forward with purpose 'cause if I stand still, I will get run over.
I wish you love, peace, and WILD SUCCESS today and always!
