As we approach the end of the holiday season, we can see a new year looming on the horizon. Have you given any thought to what you might do as a writer in 2012?
Here’s an article I wrote on 12/28/2010 from the blog at www.ForesightYourCTPsychic.wordpress.com on the subject .
“Let’s Dream Big
by Catherine Kane
Happy Kwanzaa, to those who celebrate it!
For the rest of us, we’ve passed beyond the excitement and excesses of the holiday season, and have only New Years before we pass into a shiny New Year, full of possibilities.
For me, this week tends to be full of finding homes for presents I have received, clearing up after Christmas crafting, and beginning to catch up on commitments that went on hold during the last down hill dash to Christmas.
As I restore some order to my little corner of the world, however, I also find it a great time to start thinking about the year to come.
What do I want to do in the coming year?
What do I want to learn?
What do I want to accomplish?
Who do I want to be and where do I want to go by this time next year?
After all, we’re about to receive the biggest, best holiday gift of all – the gift of a shiny new year, fraught with possibilities, where we can do amazing things if we so chose…..
Studies find that
- if you want to get someplace, it’s important to know where you’re going;
- when you write down your goals, you appreciably increase the chance of achieving them;
- if you have a Life Mission, it helps you to choose goals that are fun, reinforcing, and meaningful to you:
- if you give some time to thinking about what you want to give your energy/love/time/resources to, you’re far more likely to do something that you’ll feel good about afterwards;
We’ve all got a potentially wonderful year coming up, if we chose to make it astounding. So I’m inviting you, as we pick up the last scraps of wrapping paper and enjoy the final twinkle of holiday lights about the neighborhood, to join me in giving some thought about what kind of a year you want to have.
What do you want to do this year?….
(Let’s dream big!…)”
So, you have the gift of 365 new days. What are you going to write?
