There are so many fantastic things I could write about today, like the birth of a gorgeous little girl, nearly born in an Ikea car park, due to the hilarious mindset of denial that my dear friend, her mummy, maintained through out the whole pregnancy. I could also tell you about the fun I had filming new material for MMQ, paralleled with the enormous absence of the gorgeous man that should have been giggling at his silly wife from behind the camera.
I could also write about the seesaw of emotions I have been experiencing on a daily basis, as a lunatic Gemini and as a single mummy, where I wish myself a million miles away, on a busy street in New York, being knocked by random strangers that are in a hurry to get somewhere else fast, where I am alone and calm in nothing but the buzz of organized chaos.
I could also whinge on about the giant burn on my leg gained by my own negligence in wearing running pants on a motorbike, with a mighty hot exhaust pipe, which now has me wincing every time I move after having been still just long enough for a dry layer of skin to form, which then cracks open as I shift positions, which is then strangely followed by a smile of a sting that reminds that I am so grateful to be ALIVE…
So after beginning countless posts, here is what I really want to write about today… however you are feeling or where ever you are at, anything and I mean anything is possible, depending with what and who you surround yourself with and the structures you create to make your life work….. crazy, bonkers and extraordinary things are there for the making and taking.
In 3 days it will be December the 1st which will be my 11th Wedding anniversary, the start of my 14th year in Australia, the 1st official day of our summer and the final month of what feels like the most peculiar year of my life so far and for those 4 reasons all I want to do is look forward to what is possible as an incredible New Year cheekily winks at us.
Now is the perfect time for some action and a little reflection before we all begin knee jerking into the New Year, spitting out the same out patterns and ending up right back where we started, or worse still having achieved everything we set out to and still feeling disappointed. It is time to get some clarity on what will be in our bag of tricks for 2013 and what we will gamefully leave behind as we astonish ourselves with what we are capable of.
So who is game? For the month of December I will be posting ‘ Reflect, Refine and Ready, Steady Go!!!’ exercises, to support us all crafting New Years resolutions with some bark and bite.
1. Look back over your calendar of 2012 and remind yourself of what took place when and where. Remind your self of all that you have achieved emotionally, professionally, physically and spiritually.
2. List what you acknowledge about your achievements and why, because if you can’t and won’t acknowledge your own growth, then how can you harvest it further?
3. List the areas/issues/parts of you life that did not grow, bloom or blossom and then acknowledge clearly and honestly what it was that got in the way for you, what stopped you and how you may have stopped yourself?
As always, please share the love and be sure to be mindful of the content you post…… Reflection time…
