Truth. 2012. Is my year.
With every New Year’s come big dreams. Resolutions. Vows. Bravery. Excitement. All the good stuff.
I can’t count the number of times I’ve said “This year. Is MY year!”, only to feel like a total and utter failure come February when I haven’t held up my end of the bargain.
This year. NO resolutions. NO vows to lose X pounds or workout X times per week. NO promises to become a morning person (this is SO not happening). Nope.
Instead. I’m going to LIVE.
I’m going to GROW. EXPAND. BLOSSOM. CREATE. BECOME. LAUGH. DREAM. FOCUS. SHED. RELAX. PLAY! KEEP IT REAL. SHIP. WRITE. BE INSPIRED.
Sounds fun right? A lot more fun than broken promises and berating ourselves for not keeping a resolution.
One thing I am committing to do in this new year of possibility, is launch my blog. It’s been over a year in the works and I’ve been rather lax on getting it done. So this month. It’s going. Live!
I’m also committed to doing a bunch of amazing online classes. These are seriously food for my soul. Have you ever done one before?
I am a perpetual learner and I love the format (go at your own pace, participate from anywhere) and juicy topics ranging from health + wellness to photo essay’s to self-exploration to polaroid mania…you name it. I’ve done it. And I’m doing it again this year.
One (FREE!) program I’ve signed up for is the wonderfully named, A YEAR WITH MYSELF.
Every week you get inspired prompts based on that week’s theme. Prompts from celebrated authors, teachers, coaches. To push you towards your edge. To help you fly.
This week’s theme is “The Threshold”. I was immediately moved by the words of Patti Digh - specifically when she says to,
"BE A CONNOISSEUR OF FEAR".
So good right? This is definitely going to be a mantra for me in the coming year.
Head over to the site for A Year With Myself and get signed up! It’s a powerful way to truly make 2012, YOUR year!
