Aspiration. Such a big, loaded word that leads one to think of big, lofty goals to be reached. I’m not sure if I like or not. Lets play with it.
I’ve been working out a lot because its my aspiration to be healthy and happy. Is that something where you reach a tangible goal and you’re done? I don’t think so. Its a continuing, lifetime process, but it doesn’t mean its not an aspiration does it?
I aspire to be friendly to the people I meet. That’s an easily reached goal. Because its so easy, is it not an aspiration? Not at all.
I aspire to be a good mother. I aspire to be a good friend. I aspire to be conscious of my health. I aspire to be an excellent cook. I aspire to one day knit a lace shawl. I aspire to get through nanowrimo next month.
Seriously, I can play with this word all day.
I guess this thirty day meme was an aspiration. I aspired, and with this blog, I’ve reached that goal. Thirty days of posts on particular topics. I’ve enjoyed it. I hope those who have stuck with me through it enjoyed it too, and will stick around, as this has really got me into blogging mode.
I feel like Doogie Howser right now, like I’m wrapping up my day into a neat little blog post (insert me gazing to the side and smiling).
