One of my rituals for each new year is to choose a word to influence me for the year. My word for 2011 is EXPERIMENT. To support my EXPERIMENTAL focus, I commit to post the results of a new experiment each Sunday of this year.
Here in NC, we had plenty of notice. So my experiment for this week was to take advantage of doing some things that I wouldn’t have done without Irene.
Here’s what I did during Irene:
- cleaned my ceiling fan blades while the power was off;
- went for a walk in the rain with Blossom;
- read an entire novel;
- started a new massage & pedicure pre-hurricane tradition;
- replaced my 15-year-old not so rechargeable flashlight; and
- chose NOT to be afraid.
What opportunities did Irene (or other storms you’ve experienced) afford you?
