A vision for 2012

This is the first post of this year. Almost a month into 2012. Over a month after my previous post.

After spending most of 2010 posting four times a week, week after week, I kinda dried out in 2011. I didn’t run out of ideas. I ran out of steam. Out of motivation.

That was my story for 2011. Not just for my blog – for my life. I slowed down. Despite myself. Notwithstanding all my good intentions.  I just didn’t have the will to do anything. But I want to change that.

The world is going to end in 2012, or so the Mayans said. I don’t believe that means the doom and gloom that Hollywood would have us believe. It means the end of a cycle. And the end of a cycle heralds the beginning of a new one. So this year, I intend to start anew. To begin afresh.

I’m not in a hurry. I want to do things slow – and get them right. So I’m going to take my time. To analyze the year that was. To examine where I am and determine where I want to be. To plan. To take one step, and then another and another. To start the journey. Because that’s what’s important. The destination will come. Or it won’t.

What’s important is moving forward. Learning. Growing. Challenging yourself. Being fresh.

As I analyze, learn, and grow, I will share some of my insights with you, my wonderful readers. So if you find yourself stuck in a rut, or in need of some motivation, stay tuned. The best way to keep up with posts – through my RSS feed.

If you’ve been stuck in a rut and broken free – do share your advice in the comments. I’m on the lookout for all the help and inspiration I can find!

  1. What a wonderful way to start – investing in yourself. I love that. I also love the photo illustration from flickr.

  2. I love that you’re doing this. Some of the best times in my life were when I sat down and really did some soul searching within myself. I came out ahead afterwards, and made some pretty drastic changes in the process.

    It’s how I ended up in California ;)

    Just don’t be afraid to go deep within and question, and then take the steps to get to where you want to be.

  3. I love the way you see 2012… the end of a cycle… it is scary… a bit..

    I had the same problem at the end of 2011 with my motivation, I can’t totaly relate… I’m glad you’re back and look forward to read your next post!

  4. That is the wonderful thing about life…..every morning….every week….every year there is a new beginning…..new opportunities….new changes.

    I wish you all the best following your goals and dreams in 2012.

  5. I too and making some investments into myself this year. I am glad you are taking time to slow down.

  6. Apparently, this is the year for investments. After spending so much time developing others, I have decided to help myself out for a change.

    I really hope this year works out for you!

  7. I really like the imagery of the end of a cycle and the beginning of a new one…. I am also allowing myself to change and to grow.

  8. I loved this! I think that at all of us go through a point in our lives where we need to slow down for a bit. The hard part is knowing when that is

    • Yes, that’s true. Slowing down is important. Growing constantly is even more important in my opinion. And when you’re not doing that, it’s time for a reality check and some soul searching.
