I'm going to share a secret with you: I put the Energizer Bunny to shame. I'm up at 5:45 a.m. most mornings, off and running. I do a fairly phenomenal job of taking care of my family, friends and clients. I go full speed all day, then collapse around 11:30 p.m.
I haven't been to the gym in a year, I forget my vitamins regularly and I probably read two, maybe three books in all of 2010. Because reading books requires sitting down.
And I'm a role model for some people. Scary, huh?
Fortunately, it's a new year, people -- and I've decided to slow down and take better care of me.
I'm not starting at the gym ... although I'll get there. I'm starting by officially moving the Energizer Bunny into slipper and jammies and a good book mode. I'm going to relax.
I discovered over the holiday break that it can be done. I was sprawled on the couch one night, glasses off, enjoying the unfocused Christmas lights as only a severely nearsighted person can do. (Monet wasn’t nearly as impressionistic as you think.)
“What are you doing?” said Kate.
“Nothing. Looking at the reflections,” I responded.
“Ah. You’re reflecting,” she said.

I still love the Creative Instigation blog and our incredibly talented team, but I don't want to post Monday-Friday at 4:22 a.m. any more. I want to write things like this and post them at 1:11 on 1-1-11. Why? Because that makes me laugh.
And it's my blog, dang it.
So, in 2011, I plan to post whenever I want. That could be twice a day. It could be twice a month. Finding out will be part of the fun ...
