You’ve got a magic tree: what does it grow? Great question! When you imagine a magic tree people picture money, I think. Wouldn’t it be great if there was an easy, effortless way to come by those things in life that we want or care about? When I think of a magic tree I think of other things that may be corny but are more long lasting. For example, more and more lately, I think of good health because of all the perks being healthy bring with it. I don’t think of good health as something that happens almost as if by magic but rather health that is magical because with a little effort – some sort of daily exercise, careful attention to eating, time out to relax and spend quality time with family and friends, involvement in some activity you are passionate about, just to name a few – you can live a healthy life. This is to say, then, that my tree isn’t a magic tree that grants wishes but a magical tree that serves as a reminder that the good things in life I strive for demand some life changes on my part that when done consistently and intentionally are magical due to the power they have for transforming my life. What do you think? Do you agree or have I taken this idea too far? I would love to hear others’ perspectives.

I’m posting every week in 2011!

I’ve decided I want to blog more. Rather than just thinking about doing it, I’m starting right now.  I will be posting on this blog once a week for all of 2011.

I know it won’t be easy, but it might be fun, inspiring, awesome and wonderful. Therefore I’m promising to make use of The Weekly Post, and the community of other bloggers with similiar goals, to help me along the way, including asking for help when I need it and encouraging others when I can.

I hope you’ll encourage me with comments and likes, and good will along the way.
