“FEARRRRRRRR-LESSS!” Thalia dangled from the ceiling fan. “I call fearless!”
Nia looked at Cal and said, “Fits.”
“It’s FAITH for me,” Cal replied. “There is a God and we’re not it. I choose to believe everything is happening for us… even the bad stuff. We can always choose better over bitter.”
“Well Nia —” Thalia executed a flawless dismount. “You get to be in charge of FLOURISH. Isn’t that fantastic?”
I am fearless, and therefore powerful.

Happy New Year 3mm-ers! 🎉
Your three guiding words for 2023?
Sign: “If you want to say something has the property of a metal, you add ‘-ic’ to the end and that’s ‘metallic’, but that doesn’t work for some actual metals, like iron. That’s ironic.” 😁
So "ironic" could be my first word... 🤔
Three for 2023!
Faith? Perhaps the Universe is a bit friendlier than I give it credit for.
Experimental? If I take the same path to the store (of ideas) each time, and stumble at the same spot of missing pavement, a new path may be warranted. New ideas may emerge?!
Connection? It is said “Having friends requires being a friend.” Can one have too many friends? Do we benefit from having friends who are frank with us? Not blunt but willing to share their impressions of us, with us? Do online communities qualify as “friends”? Do they fundamentally fall short of eyeball-to-eyeball friendships? For me, I’ve largely settled for social media friendships.
Much to ponder in all three areas. Thank you Gail and 3MusesMerge community for the opportunity to kick the tires and compare notes.
Happy First Day of the rest of your life, and 2023! 🙏🏽
