Is 2010 Over?

Have you already written off 2010 as over? Why are we in the habit of doing that? Is it because we’re so accustomed to marketing messages about Black Friday, Cyber Monday and after Christmas sales that we forget to look inward at our own events?

We still have 6 weeks left in 2010. Are there goals or intentions for this year that haven’t come into fruition for you? If so, its never too late to start, and if you can’t complete the goal in 2010, if you start now, you’ll be well on your way to completion in 2011.

  1. Although I am looking forward to Christmas, and can’t wait for that special time with my family and friends, I don’t wish my life away either.

    Having survived a serious health scare, I know that each day here on earth is special, and I make the most of every moment.

  2. Wow! You did the big chop! Good for you! Keep it moist! Keep it moist!

    You are so right about the changes we can still make now, instead of waiting for the end of the year and making a New Year’s Resolution.

    I like this idea; give ourselves 6 weeks to make a whole-lot-of-changes.

      yes ma’am I did! I actually chopped back in August but haven’t done a video since then.

      Let me clarify, you don’t have to make alot of changes; you can choose which change(s) to make, while being mindful that you still are in 2010. It was a little arresting to see how many people are saying : “In 2011 I’ll…” or “2010 was this or that…” When 2010 still IS.

    Hmm, I thought I had posted a comment, but for some reason it didn’t get posted. Well, that was not the message meant for others, I guess!

    Anyway, this is my end/beginning of the year routine.

    On New Year’s Eve, I choose a word to guide me through the next year. It is always a verb. For example, my word for 2010 is “attend.”

    I post it where I can see it, usually in several key places. It is never far from my line of sight. Throughout the year, it gives me focus, encouragement, challenge, comfort, vision.

    I don’t know yet what my word for 2011 will be. Choosing it is part of my New Year’s Eve ritual. I sit in front of the fireplace. I write a letter to the year that is ending, thanking the year for all the blessings I have received. Then I write a letter to the new year, welcoming new experiences, expressing hope and aspirations. I sit with both letters for awhile, and then burn them in the fire as an offering.

    Thank you for the reminder to “attend” for these last weeks of 2010!

      hey Galen,
      I get ALOT of spam, so your comment might’ve inadvertently gone into the spam filter. So if that’s what happened then I apologize. I’m glad you posted again anyway.

      I love your end of the year routine. Choosing one word is kinda like me choosing a theme. Its a great way to start your year with purpose, focus and vision.

    I absolutely agree! I have no intention of wasting away the remainder of 2010. I plan to build momentum for 2011!
