The Rest is Still “Unwritten”

pen and paper

“I am unwritten, can’t read my mind, I’m undefined
I’m just beginning, the pen’s in my hand, ending unplanned”

-Natasha Bedingfield, “Unwritten

To me, New Year’s means new beginnings. Rather than making resolutions I won’t keep, or looking back at what mistakes I have made or what I did or didn’t accomplish in 2011, I am taking the time to reflect about what I want to do, feel and be in 2012.

What risks am I willing to take? What goals should I set across all areas of my life with my relationships with family and friends, with my career, and with my physical and spiritual self? How do I want to show up every day? How present can I be to what is in front of me each day?

There is no road map – no set course. This is both scary and exhilarating. There are a lot of choices ahead if I can take the time to stop and see them. There are both disappointments and joys ahead – if I have the courage to take some risks.

“Drench yourself in words unspoken
Live your life with arms wide open
Today is where your book begins
The rest is still unwritten”

Today I welcome 2012 with open arms. I look ahead with the hope of new possibilities, and I hope the same for you!

Happy New Year!
