On the Eve of Something Wonderful       


December 2011  


It is the Season to Imagine and Believe


The holidays are here, the end of the year and the start of the New Year are in our sight. Once we wrap up the last few gifts it seems we begin to put a wrap on the year and begin to think about the future. 


With a strong desire for change the start of the New Year will move many of us into action. Goals are stated, plans developed and renewed energy turns to action. For some this will be "the Year". And yet for many this will be "just another year". Good intentions and well laid plans will give way to old habits and routines. Why?


Here is something to consider; those that succeed are the ones that have a very clear picture of their desired outcome. And yet, it is so easy to dash into action just to get it done. It is so easy to put that thought into a box, wrap it up and check it off the list. Only we may find later it is really not what we expected or wanted.


"People who get what they want tend to be the ones who make the effort to know what they want." Martha Beck


Have you really explored what you want for 2012?


What idea has been catching your attention? Let yourself think about it. Expand it. Don't limit the idea too quickly or dismiss it all together. Let yourself think yes that is it and then ask "What would be even better?" Today it is just a thought so why not really explore the idea?


Go ahead, give it a try. Open up that idea and start mentally playing with it with the emphasis on playing. Each time you begin to think "I can't", let this season of belief and imagination inspire your ability to ask "What if I could?" Release the fear and even the logic and ride a bit curiosity into new possibilities. Take that initial spark of inspiration and with the joy of the season believe for a little longer.


"The only way of discovering the limits of the possible is to venture a little way past them into the impossible." Arthur C. Clarke
