Mom (aka Dr. Barbara S. Polla) came to visit me in DC and Louisiana over Labor Day weekend – her first visit to “my world” in 5+ years. We had many plans, including a beautiful boat ride on the Natalbany River. Not planned: mechanical boat problems.
I love the first week of September. I think this is from way back when, when I was in school – the first week of September always represented a new beginning, new pencils and notepads, a new plan. To this day, I have these same feelings, which are grounded in Labor Day weekend and the week following.
It is not until this year that I started going to Texas on a regular basis, and that I fell in love with Houston. My past experiences there were centered around heading to Austin in October for ACL, and one work trip to Dallas.
Over the last three weeks, I shared with you how my three life vectors came about, and explained two of my three vectors, Choice and Harmony. As I explained last week, choosing silence often helps my inner harmony. Sometimes, choosing silence also equates to being kinder. And Kindness is my third vector.
Over the last two weeks, I shared with you how my three life vectors came about, and explained my first vector, Choice. In this week’s post, I want to share with you my second vector, Harmony, which grew out of my choice to not have children.
Last week I shared with you how my three life vectors came about. Today, I want to share with you my first vector, choice. “I choose” are two of the most powerful words I repeat to myself several times a day. I love these 7 letters because they give me a sense of control.
