The List...

You know that list you hold in the secret place inside you?

The one you pull out and ponder from time to time.

You know, the one that starts with, "Someday I'll...?"

I pulled an item off my list today and exposed it to the light of day.

I think I'm going to erase it off my "Someday I'll..." list and move it to the

"Today I began..." one.

I'm not ready to share it yet. It's still my secret.

I think I shall keep it in classified status until I am sure it can endure sunlight exposure ;)

What made me pull it off my secret list?

This quote that someone had carved into the side of a building downtown Portland.

"Friend, it's time to turn the corner and find where you began. Begin again with all you lost but never forgot."

Wish me luck, Peeps.

I'm taking a brave step forward.

I have been told I have a great memory of childhood life. I remember who I was before my mother did her best to beat that person out of me.I want to be that person, don't you?
The girl we would have been.

Aafrica: it is scary because if it fails...will it affect the rest of the things you dream about?

Haphazardkat said...

Laochie: I shall!

Jadey: Yes. We can and will be who we were meant to be before the elements of life bashed at our frames. They will not defeat us.

i think it's up to ourselves to define "success" and "failure". things may not turn out exactly how we wish them to be, but it's my belief that if we don't give it a try, we can't even fail at it. and that, in my opinion, is the saddest tragedy.

Aafrica: That is really true!! I was bold and stepped out and exposed my dream to the light...it wasn't as scary as I thought and ended up skewing how I looked at other things--in a positive way :)

Yes, most people live in the land of Someday Isle!

I think, get off that island and go to the land of ICAN DOIT!

That's where I want to live!
