The Year of Expansion

Last year was the Year of Letting Go. Alex was heading off to college, and I didn't want to be "that mom." I didn't want to cry all the way home from dropping him off or, worse yet, all the way to the college. I didn't want to be a helicopter mom, hovering around him, afraid to leave. I spent the best part of a year learning to let go, and it paid off.

This year is apparently the Year of Expansion. Yes, I have gained a pound or two trying to kick caffeine, but that's not the part I'm talking about. What I'm expanding, or trying to, is my comfort zone. I talked with a publicist at the conference I went to about getting over feeling like self-promotion is the opposite of humility, and she told me I have to stop hiding my light under a bushel. It can't be the opposite of humility if you can back it up with scripture, right? ;-)

In the spirit of expansion, if you haven't already done so, go to Facebook and join my fan page!
