I believe that we don’t need huge dreams to go on. They are good and fantastic, but smaller dreams are awesome too, and they can make us feel good when they actually become our reality.
While I am writing you this, I spent an hour counting, planning, crying, thinking we will never gather these stupid mandatory «at least 5%» downpayment to buy a home. My guts tell me this is Fear talking. Again. That we will find a way to save money despite our family pattern (=one secure salary for a family of four). We can do it.
My dear friend Anu was talking about how having big goals is actually hard because the disapointment of them not coming true is as big as the dream itself (if not more). And so she stopped dreaming for a while.
I could not stop dreaming, even if it hurts so bad not to see the dreams come true. Or if it takes (way) longerto happen than my liking. Am I sadistic ? Well, maybe a little bit…
I’ve always wanted big things for myself, and now for my family as well. But it does not mean I forget all the teeny tiny little steps needed to get there. And I am thankful for each of them.
When I read the blogpost from Goddess Leonie inviting her Goddess Ambassadors to request a copy of her 2012 Workbook/Planner/Calendar, I jumped from my seat with excitement. And I use it ever since.
It helped me to say goodbye to 2011, to notice and celebrate what I did achieve during the year and that I forgot about. I accomplished a lot more than what I thought (talk to me about focusing on the negativity instead of the positivity… I still fall in that hole from time to time).
I need something I can browse through. This is how I rule. Coming back and forth. Changing, adding, opening my heart to new possibilities.
I am now listing 100 things I wanna do in 2012. This does not have to be serious and important. Fun is good 😉 Lightness is awesome. 100 seems huge-issimo, it is. But this is also a way to plan the little stuff you’ve always wanted to try and never did.
I smiled when I realized that my pen is pointing out my current age, not on purpose
There is more than 100 pages to go through, I love that I can reprint some of them if I wish to do so.
I also use it to make plans regarding the steps I need to go through and to be accountable with myself. I love that I can keep it secret if I wish to, or share it with who I want (my mom loves it, but she is not fluent enough in English to use it, unfortunately).
And I can do the pages in the order that pleases me (I’m like that, yes).
I am more of a pen and paper girl, I love typing on my computer but the feel of the pen flowing on the paper takes over and this is what makes my heart sing louder. I think I would not have enjoy it the same way if the workbook had only been digital.
I am so thankful for the chance I had to get it and now this is just fair to spread the word about it so many other Goddesses feel as blessed as me to have this tool on hand.
You can learn more about it, and purchase it right here. It costs only $9.95, and you can buy bundles so you share the love with your tribe.
Do you already use it ? What do you think ?
Wow, Nolwenn, 100 things in 2012….i’m impressed. That is something to think about. I did choose a word for 2012 which is “minimize.” I”m planning to minimize in some areas to have more in others, like more art time. I know it is something that will be an ongoing project all year, but it is coming along.
Following on your rss now. Hope you[‘ll follow on my blog as well.
Blessings in 2012, Coleen in Ukraine
