As a daughter,
I want to be less critical and more accepting.
I want to see more of the good and less of the annoying.
As a sister,
I want to listen more and talk less.
I want to be more welcoming and less occupied.
As a friend,
I want to be less consumed and more available.
I want less email and more face-to-face.
I want to assume less and create more.
As a mama,
I want to yell less and have more patience.
I want to resist less and surrender more.
I want to be less in my head and more in the room.
As a wife,
I want to be less critical and more supportive.
I want to busy myself less and relax more.
I want to complain less and to smile more at the end of a long day.
As a woman,
I want less fear and more faith.
I want less second-guessing and more boldness.
I want less comfort and more risk.
I want to create more in every facet of myself.
And as I learned from a beautiful soul
who left this planet way too early,
I want to dare to disturb the universe.
Happy 2009 my friends.
Hope to see you face to face.
