My Closet: A Metaphor for Life, Part I

Yep.  You're in the right place!  
I'm looking for a new "blog-look" and decided to try this one on for size.
What do you think?


So I set off, last month, in search of POSSIBILITY.

Which sounds kind of silly, actually.  Because you can't really look for possibility; you simply need to be open to exploring possibility.  You need to be open to new ideas and new ways of thinking.  You need to be open to making new connections.  You need to try new things.

But how?

How could I explore NEW possibilities . . .  when my life is already overloaded with my EXISTING possibilities?

I realized that I am overwhelmed every single day with dealing with my existing choices and options and, well . . . possibilities.  When I stopped to think about it for awhile, I realized that I'm actually so trapped in my already-life, so stuck in my existing structure, so secure in coddling my long-held habits and thought-patterns . . . 

That it's not really feasible . . . 

to think about POSSIBILITY!

Frankly, there's just too much crap in the way!


Over the last couple of weeks, I've come to understand that the first step in my year of POSSIBILITY really needs to be . . . 

A paring down.



So I really CAN consider POSSIBILITY in my life.

It's quite clear to me, now, that I need to tear down . . . before I can build up!


So I looked to my closet.  And I realized . . . it was a metaphor for the rest of my (cluttered) life. I dug in and gave myself a Closet Intervention.  (Stay tuned.)
