[The Real LJ Idol Season 10] Week 4: Not What You Do but How Do You Want to Feel  
Not What You Do but How Do You Want to Feel

Haven't yet figured out this year's goals
But I think I've figured out the feelings
Fierce yet flexible, flowing, creative, clear
Stretching, soaring but comfortable
Knowing these are
better intuitive guideposts
they're what makes the year feel good
And after the last year
where dreams suddenly came true
almost out of nowhere
combined with loss and fear
at the time of transitions
I know that what I need
is to set the foundations first
the things that will make
this cycle smooth and decisive
So I can see which way to turn
To be where I want to go

(This was written for therealljidol Season 10 Week 4: “I don't skate to where the puck is. I skate to where the puck is going to be.")

I hope the year goes well for you, and that you're a able to keep that passion while also being adaptive-- it's a hard combination to pull off.

I really liked the line "they're what makes the year feel good." Nice work!

When dreams do come true unexpectedly ... the feelings of fear and loss do accompany. I could relate to that so much. I agree with the feelings you have decided to equip yourself with to face the current year .... Hugs and hoping the year turns out as beautiful ... as you wish it to be.
