It's New Year's day... which means, for me - it's time to read last year's scroll and write next year's scroll. I've been sitting down every year for the past 10 years or so to compose a list of dreams, hopes, ideas, and projects for the upcoming year.
In the past couple of years, I also had the idea to start jotting down a short list of memories from the year before that I want to always remember. I'm not going to share what was on the list from last year, because those are sort of private to me, but I will share some of the memories: ice skating with my new skates on the pond beside our home on Christmas morning with my husband, leasing a bright, new office space for our family business, the "Summer of Fun" at the beach with my kids, and running in my first 5k with my dear friend.
(that's the back of my scroll from 2010 - the kids wanted to add their own contribution and I'm so glad they did!)
I don't think about my scroll or peek at it at all until the next New Year and it is always a pleasant surprise to see which things on my list came to pass, and which things did not. Some hopes are included on the list year after year... but that's the beauty of the scroll...
Here are some things I'd like to see more of in the coming year.
