“I would love to live like a river flows, carried by the surprise of its own unfolding” – John O’Donohue
Unfolding 2017 is ready for you. This is what? Year 4 of Unfolding? Crikey.
I make no secret that I love time to reflect on what has been so I can pick up learnings, completing Unfolding in the hush of that week between Christmas and New Year has become somewhat of a tradition around here.
I haven’t changed much for Unfolding 2017, I’ve removed the planner because it isn’t a planner, and I’ve added a few words on how to create your own Campfire (or how to complete Unfolding with friends and family).
Because, as someone wrote:
My daughter and I did this together this week. She is 40, I am 64. It was a wonderful exercise in seeing where we have been, where we want to go and what we want to rid ourselves of. It was a loving exercise to do together; when one of us got stuck, the other was helpful in filling in the blanks. Now we plan to be accountability partners with one another. We will check with each other to see how well we are progressing in our plans. This is so much better than resolutions!
Every moment allows you the opportunity to reflect, grow and begin the journey of any change and transformation. However, there is no denying the feel of new beginnings and freshness that comes with a New Year. I believe that dates are just numbers. But I also know that this time of the year – generally more than any other – we do a lot more self-reflection
So why not capture it? I want to live in a world where fresh starts happen moment by moment, new questions asked and stories written when we want not when the calendar dictates. I want to live in a world where we aren’t waiting for a clock to tell us it’s time to think again.
Own some time for yourself during this season, and give yourself permission to question, to reflect, to consider the endless possibilities and opportunities that are available to you in every moment and every day.
Let’s forget resolutions, and instead consider inspirations and intentions. A space to write, collate, acknowledge your part in your time. And some breathing space to let go of the 365 days just gone, and consider the promise of the every day to come.
With much love to you,
