“First thing every morning

before you arise say out loud,

“I believe,” three times.”

– Norman Vincent Peale,

author of The Power of Positive Thinking

Today is day 270 of 2012.

I started on January 1, 2012 with this ordinary creative endeavor.  I have been living my word of the year (create) but I must admit that nearly every day I have a “what the h*ll moment” questioning my self-imposed challenge and wondering what I could possible tackle!  In the midst of the fails, the nonsense, the inspiration droughts and the time crunches, I still believe in my purpose and therefore that one little word will carry me forward.

Someone once told me that when faced with life choices, he recommended always following the scarier path because it will always result in digging deep – requiring the most faith and courage.  Cheers to believing in the scary path and thank you for following along!
