“You have two options ~you can grieve over a past that let you down or you can create a future worth celebrating.” … Susanne
Well here we are … the end of another year. It’s the time of year when many people make a list of all the things that they didn’t do and make resolutions for being “better” next year. I used to be like that too … but now … when I look back I do my best to maintain a more balanced perspective. Sure … I didn’t get everything done that I was hoping I would (but then again what ADHD person ever does!??!) … but wow … I accomplished a lot!
I believe that in order for me to move ahead effectively and do better … bigger … different … next year I need to make a realistic appraisal of where I’ve been and a Heart-felt visioning of where my Spirit and I would like to end up. I’m fond of saying: “Life can’t deliver my dreams if a) I don’t have any and b) I’m not clear about them.” Capital “L” Life also has a challenge delivering dreams into my future if I’m preoccupied with my past!
So … my short recap of 2012 is that: 1) I learned to walk again. (HOORAY!!), 2) I went back to school and excelled at a course that; in my youth, I wouldn’t have stood a chance in. (Wow!), 3) I finished my big book and produced two more small ones and lastly, 4) I made peace with who I am, what I want in life and the fact that if I’m not co-creating aforementioned life with Life then it is probably not going to work out as well.
2013 is just around the corner. I have dreams. I have visions and I have plans … big plans! Miss Perky, Ms Sunshine and I are intending to conscript Life into assisting us with finding an excellent, loves-our-books publisher so that more people can share-the-love … and that’s just for starters. Miss Perky says that she thinks that we should drag Life around everywhere with us in the new year. She figures that if we’re going to co-create all these fun times with Life … well … It should be present to enjoy the celebrations. Sounds good to me! Before I go Life just wants me to remind everyone that: “You have two options in life ~ you can grieve over the things that didn’t get done or you can create a future worth celebrating.” Party on fellow Joy Seekers!
Godspeed and Joyful Journeying Everyone
