The year is still brand new, and in this season my mind hums with thoughts.
Always, I want to be better at whatever I do. It’s in my DNA. I’m wired to strive towards excellence.
These days I’m reading more, spending time fine tuning the behind-the-scenes parts of the blog, learning, and dreaming. I’ve also taken a back seat to my online social activities, which I sort of miss. It’s all part of this internal drum in my heart and head to thrive.
I know all that sounds like I’ve got a map and charted my next steps, knowing where I want to go.
Lately I’ve been chewing on the idea of writing an e-book or maybe (gasp!) an e-course of some kind.
You can be assured that it won’t be a recipe or cookbook. That I know for sure. I do enjoy cooking in the kitchen and I can teach you how to make oodles of meals from one chicken… but that’s about it. There are other things which I think might be more helpful to womankind.
At this point in my life I have a tendency to see my short-comings more than my long-comings. Is there such a word?
That’s why I thought I’d ask you for your help.
This crazy idea popped into my head. Maybe if I knew your concerns, your challenges, the areas in which you’d like help or need help… maybe all this could be a win-win. I’m not saying I’m the answer lady. But, I do a pretty good job at researching and teaching and I’ve written more than a few tutorials.
Right now I’m staring at a nearly blank sheet of paper. I’ve written some categories across the top of the sheet. You’ll find all of them in the menu on the blog header. But, that’s it. Those are the topics I’ve covered in my more than 2 years of writing here at An Extraordinary Day. If you click down on them you’ll see plenty of sub categories, too. (Hopefully in the next several days those sub categories will all be filled with posts to make navigation here on the blog easier.) If you haven’t already had an “ah-ha” moment… maybe one of these will trigger something in your thinking.
Truly, I appreciate your help, insights, and of course, even more learning about your personal challenges.
This year I want to keep moving forward with excellence.
But even more… I want to thrive. I want you to thrive.
I like this quote from Maya Angelou…
“My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive;
and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style.”

There’s one thing I must say…. thriving is not my mission in life. My mission is to honor and glorify God with all I am. That being said, we can easily slip into the spot where we spend our lives treading water, trying like crazy to keep our heads above the water, hoping to survive. I know!!!
This year… let’s get out of survival mode and strive to thrive!
I cannot wait to read your thoughts and insights!
Wishing you An Extraordinary Day!
