But this is also 2012 - the year which has been the source of speculation, rumour and mystery for a very long time indeed. There have been so many books, films and conspiracy theories that there is a different sort of anticipation this year and a lot of people are just waiting to see what will happen.
My own take is that this is an exciting time and we are moving into uncharted territory. I intend to jump in tongue first and make sure that this year is an amazing year for the whole planet. I am starting right now.
I have been working through the fantastic Goddess Workbook 2012 from Goddess Leonie, recognising what I achieved in 2011 and making plans for 2012.
So 2012 is going to be the year that:
1. I learn to manage my stress completely;
2. I take my creativity to the next level and remake it as a way to financial independence;
3. I integrate my spirituality even more closely into my life;
4. I finish my Masters; and
5. I build a sacred mind temple.
Because I believe that time isn't something that happens to you, it is a resource for you to spend, I am going to make 2012 something very special.
The 3 words summing up the 2012 I am going to make are:
How are you planning on crafting your 2012?
