Around 10 years ago I discovered what might be my all time favorite book. It’s called The Artist’s Way, by Julia Cameron. The subtext is A Spiritual Path to Higher Creativity. Prior to this book, I would never have considered myself an artist. Artist’s were people who could paint, or sculpt, or play a musical instrument. I was an accountant, and I couldn’t do any of those things. (more…)
On a Myers Briggs test, I score as a P, not a J. For an accountant, this is very unusual. A P is someone who likes to keep their options open. A J closes down options. Neither is better than the other, they are just different personality traits.
I bring this up because the “what’s next” for me is to decide what I am going to do with the year of taking better care of myself. (more…)
Today I am 49 years old. Usually birthday’s don’t bother me at all, but this one is affecting me. I’m not entirely sure why, but I have some ideas. Part of it may be that I am now the same age my mom was when she passed away. She seemed so much older than I do, but maybe that’s just the perspective we have of our parents when we are young.
Another piece is that I know I am at the crossroads of another transition in my life.
