2013 brought many wonderful things for our family. My husband recovered from a health scare (nothing like a couple of aneurysms to keep life interesting). The oldest of our three sons turned 13 (our first teenager – yikes!). And, oh yeah, I published my first three books.
With all the craziness that 2013 sent our way, I decided it would be a good idea to give my 2014 resolution considerable thought. So after quite a bit of pondering, here it is: I resolve to relax my face.
“Huh?” you might ask. You see, I tend to be a bit… focused? Intense? Obsessed? Yup, obsessed. When I find a topic that grabs me, I research the heck out of it. Make the mistake of asking me a question on that topic, and I’ll talk your ear off. And through all my research and lecture-giving and general obsessive obsessing, I’ve realized that I tend to frown. Not in displeasure, mind you, but as a result of my extreme focusedness. (Yeah, okay, now I’m making words up. That’s something I like to do, too.)
In fact, here I sit, brow furrowed in concentration, as I try to craft just the right blog post to convey to you the intensity of my obsessive nature. So I’ll start on my resolution right now. And…relax my face.
