The Big Picture

37903_340As you may (or may not) know (or care), Betsy is once again striving to set goals and develop habits that will at long last move her life forward.  But in order to do this, she first needs to identify her overall objective.  Her Big Picture, if you will.  The thing towards which the goals and habits will lead.  The horizon towards which she will steer.

Because Betsy is, well, Betsy, this is much easier said than done.

Computer ReadingHello, my friends!  I thought I would write another chatty, newsy little blog post, because I actually have news to chat about!  And that, as we all know, is so rare an occurrence that it must needs be celebrated.  So, I’m going to try to ignore the incredibly persistent fruit fly determined to fly up my nose and persevere.

Just as a side note, is there anything more annoying than a persistent fruit fly?  I don’t think so! *pfffff*  Gah!  I think I just snorted a fruit fly!
