Looking Forward

As a way to reflect on and bid farewell to 2011, I had planned to participate in a reverbing exercise. You can see from my lack of posts this month that my attempt did not pan out too well.

Truthfully, a lot of what I would have written probably would have sounded like a broken record anyway. And I have a hunch that there would not have been nearly enough positivity as one should possess while reflecting on the blessings in her life. I suspect that there would have been too much, "Poor me. I hate my job. I long to be at home" and way too little Thank You's. So in a way, I'm glad I didn't go there.

Instead, I will simply look forward and imagine that 2012 will be full of:

~ Holding Bianca
~ Loving Harry
~ Spending time in quiet
~ Reading the Word
~ Eating right
~ Exercising
~ Singing
~ Writing
~ Dreaming
~ Choosing names
~ Laughing
~ Nourishing the important parts
~ Leaving work on time
~ Napping in the sun
~ Running away to the beach
~ Embracing a new reality
~ Strengthening friendships
~ Witnessing answered prayers
~ Being brave
~ Asking for help
~ Taking action
~ Opening new doors
~ Playing
~ Spinning in circles
~ Honoring my body
~ Stretching
~ Transitioning
~ Nesting
~ Simplifying
~ Savoring
~ Making memories
~ Healing
~ Saying goodbye
~ Being authentic
~ Embracing newness
~ Jumping ship
~ Growing by leaps and bounds


  1. This is deeply inspiring Carey. These are thoughts that enter my mind ever so often. Its a breath of fresh air knowing that Iam not alone. Know that its human nature to have doubts, just as it is to feel disillusioned when it seems that your hard work is done in vain. Your to do list of enjoying the finer things in your life, is what's going to get you to the next level. The best things in life are always free. Just keep that postive mindset and your faith in God. He will never steer you wrong. Just continue being that knid hearted, free spirited individual that you always have been. Things will work out just fine :-)

  2. Thank you so much, Ashly!! I appreciate your encouarging words! All the best in the New Year! : )

  4. Aww, Chelle! I love you! Yes, this year I am aching to grow in new, deep, authentic ways!
