I took part in the "Heart Exchange" through Louise Gale's blog. What a lovely experience. We each had a partner for whom we made something from our heart to theirs. I received a gorgeous heart book from Jenna. What a thoughtful gift - one that I am going to use to inspire me in 2012!
(thanks so much Jenna and Louise!)
Planning for 2012
There is so much available to help in planning for 2012.
I just signed up for Ali Edwards "One Little Word 2012" online course, which will run all year. I have been choosing a word to help guide me with intention throughout the new year for a couple of years.
For 4 weeks in December, at "Myles Ahead", you can start a weekly process of visioning for the year ahead.
The 100 questions exercise was very interesting and has resulted in 10 questions/themes I hope to pursue in 2012.
Reverb 2011 has begun again, although through a different organizer than last year.
With all three of these groups, the primary goal has been to choose a word of intention for 2012. I made a preliminary list of 20 words and have finally chosen my word. Actually, it is one small phrase, as it encompasses so much of what I want 2012 to be.
I turn 60 in early January and so begins a a new decade, one that I want to be healthy, eventful, and exciting.
The phrase is "Seize each day" from the Latin "Carpe Diem". (A fellow teacher has this as her license plate and I always feel it deep inside when I see it.) It can mean so much. I hope it forces me to reach out and do more and see more.
The 2 ATCs I created above hold 2 quotes that very much fit this phrase.
