Have you seen the movie
‘What About Bob’ ?
One of my favorite movies- makes me laugh the whole way through.
So I was thinking about the year in review…
and I thought of Bob Wiley.
Bob is afraid to go anywhere or do anything.
In his effort to grow he goes to a therapist-
Dr. Leo Marvin
(who Bob drives completely crazy!)
and he becomes a baby stepper.
He ‘baby-steps’ his way everywhere-
onto the elevator… out the door… and into Dr. Marvins life!
There are bigger things too…
He has a chance to sail on a boat
he is afraid
(it makes his lips numb to even think about it lol!)
but he is baby-stepping…and growing…
and he wants to do it..
they strap Bob to the boat and the boat sails out across the water
and it occurs to Bob that he is doing it.
HE is SAILING and he yells out:
I’m a SAILOR now!’
I love ‘What About Bob’
not just because it was a fantastic hilarious movie
but because I love the message of how even if it’s a baby step
it’s a step either way
and eventually all those little steps add up
and before you know it-
you are a ‘sailor’.
2011 was definitely a year of taking baby steps
The year started off rocky for me
and I struggled to find my footing at times…
2011 also brought so many good things to my life
that were just incredible.
Including some amazing opportunities
and chances for me to grow &
stretch my creative wings a bit
and to sail.
so happy my family was able to tie me to the boat!)
I have been blessed this year in so many ways
and as I think back on 2011-
I am so grateful…
For the experiences, opportunities and friendships that have formed…
and that includes the wonderful friends I have met through blogging~
Thank you for your support and friendship!
I appreciate it so much.
So here’s to the New Year
to new possibilities
and opportunities to sail!!
Follow your heart & dream big!
I know I am!
Wishing health, happiness and blessings
for everyone in 2012!
