Veering from adventurer to whimsical for my birthday

Every year, I come up with a word in December to capture the new upcoming year. Some years, my word is spot on. Other years, not so much. For this current year, the word I had selected back in December was “adventurer.” Then life deflated my adventure ballon. I’m just starting to adjust to my new realities and am still addressing health issues for which no medical provider can be confident of a diagnosis.

I haven’t felt much in the mood for an adventure. However, I know this fatigue and weariness is not me. I will have to ease into adventures. I have also been slowly rearranging my house. In particular, I have been focused on the living room. And, in my rearrangement, I have found a sense of whimsy. I have some whimsical art pieces that I have placed front and center. I have picked some brighter colors.

Whimsy! It works for me. I think. I believe I need a few doses of whimsy to go back to my adventurer self. And, that sense of whimsy is the gift I am giving myself (along with the gift of grace) this year for my birthday. It’s time to change course.
