Resolution Thinking

Winterwonderland
With January not so far away, New Years' resolutions are on my mind, which may be why this quote struck a chord with me recently.

"If you want to be found, stand where the seeker seeks." Sidney Lanier

I saw the quote on one of my favorite blogs Smart, Pretty and Awkward, a blog where I consistently find posts that make me stop and think on Molly's blog.

This quote has me thinking about not just setting goals, but making sure I am in the right physical and mental place to make reaching them possible.  Couple this quote with a line from a song I (surprisingly) fell in love with this summer and I think I have a good recipe for goal success.

"If you want more love why don't you say so." - John Mayer

Bottom line - my plan is to decide what I want, say it clearly and make sure I'm in the right position to make it a reality.

great post Jamie. I too like this John Mayer song - for some odd reason I often hear it while grocery shopping and it immediately makes me happy. This is a great video, he has a really fine guitar-playing style. I like your resolve too!

John Mayer so distracted me that I left out the most important part of my comment. that photo is GORGEOUS. When the page opened my jaw dropped and "oh wow" was heard coming from my heart.

I've been thinking of resolutions as well. Your quote is a good one and I think you will have a very successful new year following your own advice!

Have a wonderful day.
