Happy Will Day!
I realize that it's technically May Day today, but you know me. I have a habit of going against life's grain to make things interesting.
I considered writing about things that I "may" do today, this week, this month, this year. It would have looked something like this:
1. I may dye my hair today.
2. I may exercise more often.
3. I may become a teacher soon.
4. I may become a published author.
5. I may have children and raise a family.
Sure, it fits in with the "May Day" theme. Setting positive goals in a cheeky way. Cute, right?
To me, the word "may" is right up there with "might," which is detrimental to a list of goals, cheeky or not. "May" is sneaky, because it is safe. May offers the option of completion, which has plagued me for much too long.
So I declare today...Will Day! It doesn't have the same "zing" as May Day, but it has something better. A concrete deciding factor. Like these:
1. I will dye my hair today.
2. I will exercise more often.
3. I will become a teacher soon.
4. I will become a published author.
5. I will have children and raise a family.
I like the sound of "definite." Most definitely!
In my experience, where there's a may, there's a way. But there's no guarantees.
Where there's a WILL, there's completion, and guaranteed success.
Now THAT'S cute, right?
Happy Will Day, all!
What WILL you do today?
