2010 Sailed in with a helpful spirit

After yesterday, let me assure you that there will be more posts coming about the different types of crazymakers we all deal with!

2010 sailed in with a spirit of helpfulness. Without even thinking about it, I have begun organizing in my life. I did not have a goal of cleaning out and organizing (and unsubscribing to tons of stuff!) my emails. However, I find myself doing it in idle moments. I did have a goal of getting rid of clutter, and in the past that was accomplished by force. But in 2010, I glide through.

What is different about 2010? Is it just the stage I'm at in life? I don't think so, because I've heard the intense spirit of hope from so many. We all had great expectations of 2010. And for the first time ever, I feel like I will not be let down. The change has occurred within.

I know that I've been doing the groundwork for years. To make the life that I desire. And I did so knowing that would not be possible without one core change. But I had to wait that change out. And now the time is upon me. I will be divorced next month, and my life will be mine. Absolutely mine.

I had surrendered years ago. I knew things would be done in the right time. I did not actively start working towards it or planning til last year, but in my soul I knew. For me, 2010 is a time to claim myself. To lead an absolutely authentic life. I'm glad 2010 sailed in with a helpful spirit.

What does 2010 mean to you? If you had to characterize the spirit of the year, what would yours be?

Ohhh, just one word for the spirit of 2010? That's tough. It feels like so many different things to me. Let's just sum it up with 'success'. 2010 carries the spirit of success for me. Not just success with financial meaning, but success in love, in self discovery, in goal setting and accomplishments, in happiness, and every other aspect of my life. For the first time ever, I am actually setting goals and being active about making them happen. It's all a learning experience for me since it is so new to me, but every little accomplishment drives me to do something else. 2010 is going to be life changing, and I am so thrilled to be sharing it with you!!!

2010 = Bliss

Great blog once again. You pretty much summed up my morning pages with this one. :) This year I have set goals like every other year. The difference is; not only am I looking forward to accomplishing them, I can vividly visualize meeting and exceeding them. The journey looks just as sweet as the destination.

2010 For me it will be a tough year, 10 months without my spouse, but 10 months for me to show what I've got!

your blog is very good, true to the point
I don't set goals, I always just pray that this year goes better then the year past, and go for it. 2009 was a good year with some bad bumps, but we all came thru them, and praying that 2010 has no bumps to slow me down.
I use my journal book I got from you for all my good thoughts, keep up the good work

Growth will be the word for me for 2010. I hope to grow as an artist and have the courage to materialize some of the ideas in my head.

Eleanor is back to "talking" at "This Side of Paradise," after a three-month break. She hopes you'll pay a visit. We deleted some non-Eleanor postings, so the march to Post No. 500 on one page will have more journey to follow. "We are in awe of you," Eleanor says, and her Biographer nods his head in agreement.

For me, 2010 is equal to contentment. I have finally rearranged and changed so that I am happy with what I have. Anything above that is just extra. :)

For me 2010 will be full of new adventures, new roads not yet traveled. I'm looking forward to moving my family across the states. I'm so excited and anxious I can barley stand it!

If I had to pick one word to describe it, it'd be hope, I am gonna try to not be so negative and have postive energy about everything
