Every year since starting this blog I’ve done a NYE post (give or take a few days) that outlines my resolutions for the coming year. Last year I wrote a bunch of “intentions” for 2011.
Below I outline which ones I stuck to. And the other events that emerged, with intention, too. And then where I want to head in 2012.
But first I want to discuss “failure”.
My “failures” in 2011 have been observable by many due to the nature of this blog – in real time, with commentary and opinion from virtual strangers (very much literally). Which has been an interesting process to be a part of. But good. Definitely good.
Failure. I’ve had some this year. I observe many of us have. Or rather many of us have had plans that went awry. Complications. False starts. Steps backwards. Recalibrations that involved dismantling a few things in the interim.
But then – and tell me if it was this way for you, too? – the year has somehow ended with some resolution or settling or forgiveness or landing.
This has been the theme this year. It was a massive year. A hard year.
