There is this website that I visit from time to time. It is called Band Back Together. I have submitted my story there and a have had 3 of them published. The Band is a place where no one is alone. No one is judged. And people just tell their stories.
Aunt Becky – founder of the place issued this challenge:
This year, on Band Back Together, we're plotting total World Domination. It's time to take a good hard look at ourselves, bring the happy back where we can, fling glitter when we can't, and slowly - but surely - take over the world.
Save The Band, Save The World.
For January's Bringing the Happy Back World Tour, we're going to figure out what we will do this year.
So what will YOU do this year?
I will…be strong.
I will…stand up to cheap shots.
I will…hold a plank position for one minute by 12-31-2012.*
I will…stand up for what is right.
I will…always take the high road.
I will…stop apologizing for things that are not my fault.
I will…stop putting up with BS.
I will…spend less time on the computer and more time reading with my daughter.
I will…watch the Lord of the Rings Trilogy. But not all at once. That’s crazy.
I will…put God first.
I will…work on keeping my mouth from flapping open and try to think before I speak.
I will…quit my diet coke addiction.
I will…drink more water.
I will…take care of me.
I will…stop being scared of bullies.
I will…stop being pushed around.
I will…be ready*.
*My middle school aged religious education students tell me that the world is supposed to end on 12-21-2012 according to the Mayan End Times Prophecy. So I challenged them. “Are you ready?” I asked them. “If the world ended today, are you ready? How about your soul?” I’m their teacher, it’s my job to challenge them.
