Breakthrough? (a reflection on 2012 so far)

1 February 2012 § 2 Comments

On January 1, Husband and I did an exercise where I cut circles out of colored cardstock and then we wrote our vision for 2012 on them in each of five categories:  Him, Me, Us, Home, Money.  He wrote the vision for Him, I wrote the vision for Me and we wrote the vision for Us, Home, and Money together.  We taped them to the fridge, so they are VERY present in our everyday lives.  (Our counselor aptly calls it the “visioning fridge”).

Inspired by my very incredible sister-in-law, who before the end of 2011 chose a word to embody in 2012, and with the help of my Relationship Cards, I chose “breakthrough” and wrote it boldly in the middle of the Me circle.  Wishing and manifesting and visioning can all be tricky because the skeptic in me can never be sure whether I am more aware of things that are happening or whether more things are actually happening because of intention.  That said, here is a list of breakthrough-ish things that happened in January:

  1. I finally understood and did two yoga poses (in two separate classes) that have been a challenge since I started practicing regularly in November.
  2. I moved out of the serious science slump I have been in since Octoberish in one day last week.
  3. Hubs and I did serious emotional work on money in our relationship.

I’m pretty excited to see what’s in store for the rest of 2012.

    I love the relationship cards (I just looked them up from your link)! I need to be more intentional in my life. Some days I do so well, and other days? Not so much. I have three blog posts brewing in my mind right now: (1) reflecting on my goals for this year, much as you have done, and assessing why I’m falling short in some areas, (2) committing to living in Austin and what that means for me emotionally and practically, (3) random pregnancy stuff. I *will* attack one of them this afternoon… hopefully after I plant onions in the garden which I’ve been meaning to do all week.

    Thank you for inspiring me to be a more thoughtful and intentional individual (and to be forgiving to myself when I’m not). It’s a work in progress.

    That’s freaking cool. I love mixing therapy with art! Do you change the circles or keep them the same over time?
