It’s “Might-As-Well” Monday. At least, that’s what I’m calling it. Since Mondays are typically non-Fundays, my new objective is to attempt to think about the question “What would you do if you knew you wouldn’t fail,” come up with some reasonable, not-completely-off-the-chart options, pair that up with it’s “might-as-well-Monday” and make a plan to do some things that I would do if I truly knew that I wouldn’t fail. Now, I’m not going to go to things like “If-I-Had-a-Million Dollars” or “World Peace” because again, I’m thinking “not-completely-off-the-chart,” and this is not the question and answer session of the Miss America pageant.
Okay, here’s my short list for now, and I’m going to start light and work my way up towards loftier goals.
1. I would go the nearest retail clothing store and buy myself a pair of Skinny, size 8, hip-hugging jeans. I mean, if you knew you wouldn’t fail…well, who wouldn’t? But, it’s “might-as-well-Monday,” and I haven’t seen size 8 since middle school (I actually think I went from size 6x to size 14, and skipped all the sizes in between), but since I didn’t make any new year’s resolutions, I’ll add this to my “might-as-well” category and work towards that objective. Stranger things have happened…
2. I would run a marathon. Seriously. Aside from the fact that I don’t even exercise on a daily (OK, rarely) basis, wouldn’t it be fantastic to run a marathon? I used to run track when I was in middle school (maybe that’s why I was a size 8) and I enjoyed it a lot. And, this wouldn’t be totally unachievable. Of course, I’ll have to start exercising first to get in shape for that…
3. I would write a book and have it published. (Getting much loftier, now) But, I think this is possible. As far as the writing is concerned, my main restraint is my imagination. I don’t have one. If I do, I can’t find it. It’s hard, at least for me, to come up with ideas about characters, and plots and all the twists and turns that keep a reader interested. But, there are books on writing that can help with this, and that’s my next step.
What would you do if you knew you wouldn’t fail? I think it’s time for some quotes, folks….
