Umbrellas and Cabana Boys. True Story.

NHBPM Day 29: ““If I could accomplish one thing (anything) in 2013 it would be…

Well, that’s easy.  You see, if you look at the prompt within the literal parameters, I must choose “one” thing.

I, however, am bat-shit crazy and have a made-for-tv-movie kind’o’life.

Thus, the “one” thing I choose is going to be one of those legal loopholes (which we law clerks love to find and/or create) that is, in fact, an “umbrella term.”

*just had visions of a destination holiday with drinks with lil’ pink umbrellies in ’em served by cabana boys in kilts*

I digress.

The ONE thing I want to accomplish in 2013 is:

Be extraordinary.

How, exactly, do you think I can accomplish such a thing?

It’s an aggregate, of course.

I have goals, wants and needs.  I have already laid down the framework (for example, the “timeline”) and determined priority and context.


What I am purporting to do is to do these things with such vigour  extravagance and HUZZAH! that even the mundane will be nothing short of inspirational.

Why not just pick something “normal”, like “Complete your Chartered Herbalism program”?!

Because it’s bigger than that.  It’s not just a program…it’s part of a whole healthcare aggregate.  It’s part of a whole body/essence aggregate.

I will be working on multiple concurrent projects and goals while maintaining the chaos of my reality.  I already think that’s pretty fookin’ exemplary.

Now, I want to make it…



I want to encompass everything virtuous that I believe in to the very core of my being…

…and I want to do it in a way that people will stop when they hear my name and think, “I wish the world had more people in it like her.”

“There is no use trying,” said Alice; “one can’t believe impossible things.” “I dare say you haven’t had much practice,” said the Queen. “When I was your age, I always did it for half an hour a day. Why, sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.”
