No Yes Inspiration Obsession

I've seen this meme floating around and it somehow seems just right on this windy Friday...

Saying no to:
  • Feeling grumpy
  • Letting people down
  • Watching burn-out creep in
Saying yes to:
  • Taking the time I need to finish things
  • Being braver. Just a wee bit.
  • Baking as much as I want, without apology
Giddy about:
  • Homemade Thanksgiving pies
  • Firefly's laugh
  • Warm, toasty waffles
Scared of:
  • Not being able to hold all the pieces together
  • All the possible endings for a loved one in crisis
  • Doing the wrong thing
  • The bugs which shall not be named but rhyme with dockpoaches
Deeply inspired by:
  • Beautiful prose
  • Puppy's childish enthusiasm
  • Friends working for justice
Obsessed with:
  • Fledgling family traditions
  • Perfecting my twists
  • Making time to read
In love with:
  • The rituals of Advent
  • Fluffy white clouds of duvet
  • Summer berries tucked away in the freezer
Haunted by:
  • Decisions made too late
  • The week I should have stayed
  • Grudges I held too long
Saved by:
  • Being needed
  • Being loved
  • Being known

Nice meme. I haven't done one in a long time but I might have to try this one!

Saying no to feeling grumpy is a struggle for me :(

What is a meme ? I have been seeing this word all over blogs and I really don't know what it is. I'm from the province of Quebec...maybe it explains things ? :)

Anyway, I'm here in visit from the land of Icomleavwe and I loved your post, it inspired me !

Have a nice day.

Fantastic meme - I'm with you on your three out of four of your scared of.

I think you took the words right out of my mouth (minus the Thanksgiving bit. I get giddy about all pies).
Happy ICLW!

I love this one and have not seen it. I'm doin' it now. Happy ICLW.

I really love your giddy about items. I ran out of my stash of waffles and dearly missed them today. Laughing, always great. Homemade Thanksgiving pies...that's what I am most looking forward to! I'm trying a new apple pie recipe from the coo.kinglight and whipping up some yummy pie crusts for the traditional pumpkin. Have a great weekend! ICLW :)

I love the meme. We are preparing for Advent as well although instead of and Advent calendar we do a Jesse Tree.

Woo hoo, this is cool! I love it! I too am a big fan of Advent rituals. One thing I am looking forward to doing with my future children is to have the nativity scene set up in a main room, but have all the pieces journey to the stable. Mary and Joseph come from the bedroom, the shepherds in the kitchen, etc. Each day getting a little closer... *sigh*

Heather said...

@nh - Now I'm curious which of the four doesn't scare you! (Hopefully it's the one about a loved one in crisis. The world would be much better if no one was ever in that spot.

Very interesting and well done!

Great list. I love your 'giddy about' list, too. They made me smile. :)

Not quite sure this qualifies as a meme though.

RELH said...

Wonderful idea and wonderful list!

Miriam said...

Wonderful list! I might borrow this for a day when I'm fighting writer's block.
