Wrapping up the year

Everyone is meant 
to fulfill their destiny on earth 
in their own unique way

I haven’t been able to keep up with Radvent in real time, but the posts address things I have thought through as I did write my responses. I also have touched upon some of these topics in my own musings over the past year, which makes our journey pretty universal. In using a blog both as a diary and as a way of self-discovery, every person will have thoughts about the 25 topics Princess Lasertron has asked us to ponder. We are all evolving beings, after all.

As I am gathered with family and we reflect on the changes between last year and this year, share our adventures of 2011, and ponder our goals for 2012, Radvent’s thought provokers also serve as touch stones for setting up new year’s resolutions.

 “It is never too late to be what you might have been”
~ George Eliot 

Our year will include challenges, balancing acts, fascination, caring, drawing/doodling/sketching (imagining), starting, travel, comfort, influence, writing, resting, creating (fear-busting), performing, pride, success, rhythm, music, style, identifying, mentoring, wrapping (unhiding), being present, creating magic and becoming.

 “Your intent makes wishes realities
and your wishes tend to come true. … 
Wishes are requests for
an exception to the expectation.”
~Paul Pearsall, Wishing Well

My intent for the new year is to not let my fears hold me back. The worst worry never materializes, and my biggest challenges have been less eventful than imagined.

Daily resolutions include:

  1. Give the positive exponentially more value than the negative
  2. Honor people as they are, including myself
  3. Stick to the artistic journey and give it room to expand, shift gears, grow
  4. Continue to build meaningful relationships (in-person and online)
  5. Draw inspiration from life

“Pick the day. Enjoy it – to the hilt.
The day as it comes. People as they come…
The past, I think, has helped me appreciate the present –
and I don’t want to spoil any of it
by fretting about the future.”
~ Audrey Hepburn 

Have a lovely year-end weekend. May you enter the new year with great joy and anticipation.
