I was thinking, that since I’ve been talking about setting intentions and all that for a New Year, maybe I’d better check in. But, I’m not ‘there’ yet. Still working on my goals, my intentions, my ‘word’ for this year. Thankfully, it doesn’t all have to be set in stone on THE FIRST DAY, right?
Thinking about a whole year takes time. And thought, prayer, journal writing and meditation. And that’s why I’m not there yet.
New Year’s eve, I ‘attended’ the next door neighbor’s party – without really ever attending. I live in a townhouse complex so got all the excitement (ok, noise) without even leaving my house. Trying to pray or write or even THINK on that night was crazy.
New Year’s day, I spent a good amount of the afternoon doing some exercises, writing, and thinking about a ‘word’ that would resonate to me for the year – a suggestion from a friend – but, I have not been able to come up with just one word, so to heck with it. Maybe I’ll choose five words that resonate!
Anyhow, I’m scheduling more time this weekend to work on this very important project. Important to me, at least. Maybe not to anyone else in the world, but that’s ok, too.
I’ve spent New Years doing these things for many years, already. I look forward to it, and spending the time reviewing and looking ahead really helps me to focus on goals. And helps me to feel motivated as well. Funny how, everywhere you look on the internet, someone else is suggesting doing what I’ve already been doing for decades. Think I’m ahead of my time?
