Gearing up for 2006!

As 2005 comes to an close, one thing that I regret is that I did not journal as much as in past years. For a good reason - I was too busy writing other things. I know that 2006 is going to be my breakthrough year. I have so much bubbling beneath the surface - good and bad - that needs to be brought forth. The good to be developed and the bad to be exorcised. So when I saw these questions I thought they would be a good start. AND I thought it would be fun for us to do together. (Yes, it's interactive!) We'll do them one at a time and really put forth our best effort. Can you tell I used to teach school? Read them, meditate on them. Class starts promptly at 8 tomorrow. And don't forget your number two pencil.

1. What did I learn?
2. What did I accomplish?
3. What would I have done differently? Why?
4. What did I complete or release?
5. What were the three most significant events of the last year?
6. What did I do right?
7. What were the fun things I did? The not-so-fun?
8. What were my biggest challenges? How did I overcome them?
9. For what I am grateful?
10. What do I want my theme to be for 2006?

    I learned that I control my own destiny to a point. I learned it's okay to say "No" and to put my needs and the needs of my son before all else. I learned that god won't give you more than you can handle and once you learn that lesson life improves.

  2. I heard you there. Girl, I used to journal all the time. I used my journals this year with some of those themes, but mostly about my work with the youth poets. Next year, I'm gonna try to seperate my journals and keep on task.

  3. Mocha,

    I am determined to journal regularly because I think I miss so much when I don't write it down. Writing helps me digest, dissect and grow.
