Counting Down to 2012



Image from the Internet

2 weeks from today 2011 will come to an end.

It is a bittersweet time of year.

Sorry to say good bye, and be another year older, but hopeful for the future.

To stop myself from getting caught up in “I should’s,” with a long list of resolutions, and more pressure, for the coming year I have found that reviewing what I have achieved in the past year helps me move forward into the new year in a more positive and productive way.

It sort of seems silly, possibly arrogant, to make a list of achievements. However, if done with a tender heart and no ego involved, it becomes an objective way to see how 2011 played out. It enables me to see that I did accomplish many things. Maybe not all that I had hoped for.  But that’s what the New Year is for, right?

Maybe you do the same? Maybe it is a new concept for you?

Either way, if you do it, let us know how it goes, okay?

May your list be long!

What a great idea. So easy to forget achievements in the midst of new goals. I think I might do this over my vacation. Thanks for the inspiration. May your list be long as well!

Jenny,
The first time I did this it was weird, but in the end, very inspiring. Glad the idea resonates with you too. Enjoy your vacation! And thanks for stopping by.

Kim -
I've never been good at setting goals, maybe from too much disillusionment in myself. However, I do find this idea inspiring and actually maybe even making me feel a little better about myself and where I have been this year. AND where I am going next. Thanks again for the inspiration.
