So, the Mayan prophecy didn’t wipe us all out and the human race has now entered into a brand new year. What will you write on this brand new page of your self-scripted life history ? How do you decide how the next chapter will flow ?
I keep a journal each year and have signed off my 2012 journal with a contemplative review before commencing my new 2013 entries. I avoid making New Year resolutions as they can so often feel like setting ourselves up for failure. New Year resolutions are loaded with the danger of giving us a negative self-image.
Instead, I opt for a focus on the year ahead and my 2013 journal begins with an emphasis on the coming days, weeks and months. What would I like to have achieved at the end of 2013 and how would I like to be feeling ? This gives me a positive sense of direction and an energetic motivation to achieve what I want for myself in 2013, I may not yet have any clue as to how I will actually achieve what I want, but I do know that I’m heading down the right path with positive potential for success.
What would you like to have achieved at the end of 2013 ? And, how would you like to be feeling ?
