Looking left and right

Kel at X facta wrote a post about New Year Reflections where she suggested that while making our New Year’s resolutions we look left (memory) and right (future).

Looking left, I found this, an entry on January 1st in my journal (my blog is still too new to go back that far):

I started reading Victoria Moran’s book “Younger By the Day.” It’s one of those daybooks where you read a little something each day. It also has various assignments, meditations, etc.

January is titled “Possibility” and the first “assignment” is: “Keep in mind through the month of January that all manner of wondrous things are possible, and that you are open to all possibilities.”

I like the idea of starting off the new year filled with thoughts of wondrous possibilities. I’ve often thought one of my biggest hold ups in life is how I tend to limit myself. I do this by seeing myself as I think I am rather than as I might be.

So, for today (and for the month), I’m going to explore the possibilities.

“The object of a new year is not that we should have a new year. It is that we should have a new soul…” ~G. K. Chesterton


And looking right, there was this. I picked this post because it was the first in our new place and the start of our 2007 sabbatical adventure and another year open to all possibilities.

Happy New Year! I hope 2007 is a wonder-filled and magical year for you.
