year in, the year out...

i'm not a huge resolution person, i like to acknowledge things i might want to accomplish or mini goals i might have, but i'm not a make a bunch of changes all at once because the calendar flipped over kinda gal. however, i kind of liked the idea of thinking on this from superhero's blog:


1. What do you want to acknowledge yourself for in regard to 2009?
(What did you create? What challenges did you face with courage and strength? What promises did you keep to yourself? What brave choices did you make? What are you proud of?)

2. What is there to grieve about 2009?
(What was disappointing? What was scary? What was hard? What can you forgive yourself for?)

3. What else do you need to say about the year to declare it complete?

The final step is to consider your primary focus for the year to come. What is your primary intention or theme for 2009? Is it the year of joy? the year of self-care? the year of partnership? Stand up and say it proud, "2009 is my year of...."


i think 2010 will be full of adventures, large & small. & i think that's all i need to know or declare & i think that is quite enough! adventures & experiences. good, bad, ugly, scary, thrilling, larger than life & tiny little ones. i'm ready for 2010 & i'm okay with it being an unknown adventure :)
