By Skimum Paula
In 2015, I’m looking at things differently, as in, laying my head on the edge of the sofa and finding cobwebs under the table differently, and I’m starting with “resolutions.” Resolutions, a New Year’s tradition of making them on the 1st and failing to keep them by the 4th, are hard for most people. This year, I’m working on reSolutions instead.
A problem-solver by nature (What woman isn’t?), I can usually identify and tackle most practical issues coming my way. I’m taking that approach to other more personal things in my life this year. The trick with Solutions is being honest about identifying the actual issues and then recognizing the skills and resources I already have to solve them or, as friends and hubby often remind me, let them go. Even better, unlike resolutions, Solutions are flexible and expected to fail now and then.
My first Solution is to spend time on the mountain with friends in order to nourish my body and soul. Skimums will meet starting THIS WEDNESDAY, January 7th at 9:30am at the Gadzoom Lift. Hope to see you all there.
