Stretch Myself My SELF

Yes, my WORD of personal inspiration for 2011 is "Stretch".
My body, my creativity, my mind, my shyness barriers, my patience.

My health and wellness.


I have a rather big birthday milestone coming up
{too soon for me}
and want to like what I see and what I know.

I need to stretch my self-imposed limits. Reach. Strive.

Hi Kathy-this is a wonderful word for 2011. You have expressed the meaning of it perfectly. This will enable you to really become comfortable as you enter this year of your life's journey. Happy stretching...

It's a good word and goal. I don't always like what I see in the mirror and I hate taking photos. I was just thinking about this while looking at Facebook this morning. There is a gorgeous woman, a fellow artist who posts updated photos of herself all the time. I couldn't help but wish I was more like her, more free in front of the camera...

I feel more limber
just seeing this post!
Stretching increases
your oxygen levels.
Here's to more
oxygen in 2011!
Cheering you on,
Jennifer

I've been stretching my wallet a little of late. It's a start.....

Re Birthdays: I've had quite a few. After a while they become a bit meaningless. Please don't allow yourself to worry about something as relentless and inflexible as the passage of time.
Have a happy birthday.

Best wishes to you, from Boonie and Mrs S

your word is so full of possibilities!!
mine will involve some stretching as well.
Kathy may this years be full of wonderful opportunities for you...and though some of them may not be comfortable (sometimes the stretching isn't) may the results be beautiful.

Grace and peace
