Yes, it is almost here! In just 15 short days 2012 will be over. 2013 is waiting in the wings for us to grab hold and take it for a wild ride. I mentioned in my last post that I have been working through my Incredible Year workbook from Leonie Dawson. I used this workbook last year, and I have still been refering to it even in these late months of the year. It’s pretty amazing. Last year, I printed some of the pages out in Black & white out of necessity. THIS year, so far I’ve gone all color and it is BEEYOUTEEFULL!!! I Love the way Leonie uses watercolor + ink, and embellishes with odd bits of pretty here and there. It translates to print quite well, I can only imagine what the originals look like!
The first section of the workbook is all about 2012; reflecting, gleaning Wisdom from our experiences, and releasing. It is The Very Important 2012 Closing Ceremony.
Here you can recall the Lessons you’ve learned this year, Record Dreams that have been realized, note what has transformed and elated you, give yourself a pat on the back for the amazing feats you have accomplished. Here you can rant about that which has been less than awesome. Here you can give GREAT THANKS for all that has touched you in 2012. Here you can let go.
Just looking at my Gratitude pages from last year and this year at the same time. They have a lot of the same items on them! I guess these are the core things that I am grateful for. My Cleo, Her Daddy, my Momma & Momma in Love, my whole Family, our House, my car, my job, Money to get what we need and desire. This year I included the women who have taught me many things about myself and about Life, all via interwebbles: Leonie, Celes, Danielle LaPorte, Melody Fletcher. Perhaps in the year coming I will have the chance to meet one or all of them! There is so much more to be Thankful for, and I continue to give thanks everyday. I Love to Live in the glow of Gratitude. True, sincere gratitude for whatever is happening here and NOW is such a peaceful, whole feeling. So important. At the end of the Closing Ceremony section is the Completion Circle. As you place your hand in the Circle and read the blessing written ’round, we give Thanks, we Open our Hearts, we Let Go and we Radiate in Light & Joy. We can let 2012 soar into the sky, and we (I!) are ready for 2013 to bring us it’s blessings.
For me, this is so important because it let’s me truly let go of all that has been, and focus on what is to come. This had perfect timing for me, wrapping up the year end stuff, now ready to focus on the holidays, and then the Big Event of ushering in the New Year. I don’t know about you, but I am FIRED UP about 2013. I’m excited goals, and to find the surprises that lie ahead.
