It's time for a change in perception, I have to stop thinking that my life is a series of uncatchable deadlines I can chase after all the time, and the constant failure and guilt that might suggest. My first paradigm shift should involve my birthday. Instead of going, this is the date I turn 40 what have I achieved? I am going to say, this is the year I turn 40 and I will spend the year giving myself permission and time to achieve some things which mean something to me. There. I've said it. I am going to sidle past the part of me that seems to be in a rictus of " no one and nothing tells me what to do and when to do it" and one day I am going to soothe that inner child rebellion within me - may need a horse whisperer. That's my promise.

Never making a deadline
If you know my previous incarnations well enough, you'll understand why the title is such. You'll chuckle a little at the irony that I went to journalism school. Did I ever hand in assignments on time? Many a long suffering professor could probably tell you, I am not cut out for the deadline life, the media whirl, hot news or...even the average term paper.
