First, I can't believe that it's already New Year's Eve. This past year has been a whirlwind of events, experiences, and growth. And, I'm looking forward to 2012, and not only because I prefer the even numbered years to the odd numbered ones. Yeah, I know, that isn't really logical, but it's the fact.
Many, well, most of the
blogs I read are talking about making resolutions, and I'm not going to
repeat all that. But, I am curious, do you make resolutions? I make
what I like to think of as course corrections because they are more
reflections of what's working and what's not rather than an all out
resolution. I like making them now and I also do the same thing at the
end of the school year in June and at the beginning of the school year
in August. I feel like those time frames give me enough time to really
know what's working and what I've just not put enough effort in for it
to be successful.
Also, this year I'm going to choose a
word for the year, or at least for the first six months (until my June
course correction!). I was thinking of LISTEN, but I still haven't
decided. Are you choosing a word? If so, what is your word?
thing I want to do more of in 2012 is be more aware of all the
blessings and gifts around me. I'm working on concrete ways to
implement this practice. After all, they say you have to do something
for 21 days before it becomes a habit.
My prayer for
you is that 2012 will be the year you learn how to weave your talents,
abilities, gifts, and creativity into your life in amazing and
Happy New Year, Lillian! I certainly plan to listen this year: to God, to others, to music, to my own sometimes drowned-out inner perceptions and longings. I've just finished the English Standard Version of the Bible, and am casting about for what translation to read in 2012.ReplyDelete
Your "course corrections" make sense to me---I am just about ready to make some, too. Blessings in your life and creative endeavors---Jennifer
