What if I actually adopted this philosophy? What if I chose six of the things I’ve wanted to do that have, over the years, begun to look more and more impossible and/or improbable, and start believing in them? What if I started a “club” and invited others to join in?
So, here are the “whys and wherefores”. . .
If you would like to be a member of the Six Impossible Things Before Breakfast Club, simply:
1) Make a list of six things you’ve basically given up on or that more often than not seem impossible/improbable.
2) Look at the list every morning before breakfast, “seeing” yourself being/doing/having each one.
Whether you post your “six impossible things” or not, is up to you. I think it’d be fun to document what happens in some way, but how you do it is your choice.
As a member, you’re welcome to include the stylish SITBBC logo in your posts and/or on your sidebar. :o)
- If you work with Mac, you can click on the image while holding down the control key. It’ll bring up a menu that gives you a choice (among other things) to “Save Image to ‘Downloads'” — or you can click on “Save Image As…” if you’d like to put it in a different folder.
- For PCs, right-click on the image, then choose “Save picture as” which brings up a directory. Choose where you’d like to save it, and click “save.”
- Once it’s on your computer, you can insert it into a post in the same way as any other image.
- If you want to include the logo in your sidebar, there are instructions at “http://en.support.wordpress.com/widgets/image-widget/#image-widget-title” on how to use an image widget.
And here are my “six impossible things”. . .
1) Get enough sleep regularly. For me that means 9-10 hours/night.
2) Finish writing/editing my first novel.
3) Have a well-organized home. Have nothing in our place that we “do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful.” (William Morris) The main benefits I’m looking for are having a home that’s easy to maintain and never having to sort through another pile of papers.
4) Pay off my husband’s student loan debt within the next two years — all $200k+ of it. Ideas are welcome!
5) To travel. Go overseas on the QM2, see the Guthrie Castle in Scotland (one of my clan’s home bases, now a bed & breakfast), walk in Monet’s garden, and see some of his original paintings — those beautifully textured blobs and smears :o)
6) To have my own art studio that opens into a garden.
And while I’m at it, I think I’ll throw in a couple more for fun —
7) Be taller; and 8) Have great hair! :o)
What do you say, would you like to join the club?
