My Bubble: Will 2011 Close With A Bang For You?

Fourteen days more and it is Christmas. Twenty days more and it will be the close for the year 2011. Will it close with a bang for you?

So much yet so little brewed, expectations fulfilled yet disappointments endured but the unexpected never failed to save my day! While there may be many excitements and accomplishments, not everything comes out rosy all the time. Still, life moves on. As they say it, “Life is a one-way street” and we just have to enjoy every moment of it as none will ever happen the same way again.

This is how I would sum up what 2011 has offered me. As I reflect on my resolutions a second time this year (the first was sometime mid-year), I must say that I am proud and happy with my successes so far. I still have a lot to learn, to improve and to change but hey, “Rome wasn’t built in a day!”

Anyway, things will be a little different for 2012. I have decided to forego my annual resolution list for next year. Yes, that’s right! I am letting go of the list of goals and targets. I am simply going to follow the flow where the good things are currently happening in my life. However, just to maintain the clarity and focus in mind, I’ll just have to revamp my vision board to suit the dynamics of changing time and circumstances in my life right now.

I know life’s little twist and turns are not always easy but as long as I am sure where I am headed in my life, I will continually enjoy the journey and not just the end results. After all this is why I had opted for early retirement in the first place. To live life by my own design … doing what, when, where, how and with whom I so decide!

4 Bubbles:

reading your blogs, i assume you are just like me who loves making lists, targets and goals. the problem with people with lists...they tend to feel the failures more because what they want in life is so clear. Hey, it's written in black and white (sometimes, with colors too since what are vision boards without color :) )

i like what you said about life being a one way street..we may be failures often times in our lives but still, life moves on. we have no choice but flow with it :)

I totally agree with you Roma. Making lists, targets and goals can sometimes get us down, especially when we tagged it with an expectation to achieve within the next 365 days.

That's why I am staying put with only my vision board which strengthens the focus of my goals but without a preset timeframe. Our goals keeps playing and replaying in our mind but we trust the Universe to deliver them at the perfect timing.

Every day is a new learning experience and each minute is worth living happily. We never know what happens tomorrow so we better live each day to the fullest. No regret for the past and no anxiousness about the future...just being happy for what we are now, with the little we have.

Yes indeed Elvirah. Totally agree with you. We have to live in the moment ... enjoy the Now.
