The Fall Fearless and Fly challenge blog, sponsored by Artists in Blogland, just posted their newest theme: future imperfect. The color prompt is yellow, and there's also a quote prompt from Friedrich Nietsche. The prompt asks you to ponder your present/future and ask whether it can still be "perfect" even if it's different from what you imagined. The prompt really spoke to me because my present and future are definitely nothing I imagined. And they are definitely not perfect!
But, I plan to make the best of both my present and my future. One tool I will use to do so is my "one little word" (paramount), as well as my intention for the year (“It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.” )
As I was thinking about the prompt, the visual of a parachute came to me. I like the idea of knowledge and blessings floating into my life on parachutes. My journaling reads: "future imperfect . . . present in flux, but I am listening to my heart to learn what is paramount."
I am thinking about turning this page (or the one from yesterday) into a button for my sidebar, an idea I got from Patty of Magpie's Nest (here) .
Come back tomorrow for Storytelling Sunday, and, in the meantime, let me know what blessings you would like to parachute into your life this year.
