I just finished watching the movie, “Julie and Julia”, and I began to ponder some ideas. If you haven’t seen the move, please do… it is great. Both Meryl Streep and Amy Adams deserved an Oscar for their performances. But, the idea behind the plot intrigued me. What can I be doing to stretch myself in personal growth? Is there an option, like learning how to master the art of french cooking, for me?
I thought about pursuing a similar goal of learning how to cook better, just like Julie did. But, I really don’t love to cook that much. Don’t get me wrong, I like to cook, but I do not love it. I would rather reorganize and decorate a room. Yet, still I want to be able to set a goal, and attain it. And, not just for personal growth, but to make an impact on others, just like Julia.
So, as I was driving to my former house to clean up the pool, I realized what I need to do. I don’t want to share my secret with you, not yet. You’ll have to wait and see. But, for those of you who know me personally, you will be involved in this project of mine. Right now I am calling it “Project 365” in honor of Julie’s one year goal to cook like Julia Child. But, my project is different, much different, and it does not involve one inkling of cooking.
My project is for my personal growth, but it is also my hope that you will grow from it, too. I will share my project with each one of you that responds to me. This is all I can share for now. Don’t ask for hints… just wait and see.
