As many of you know, I love this time of year as a chance to ponder the previous year, clear out what needs to be released, and set some intentions for the year to come. Do I keep all of my intentions? Not even close. But that's not the point. The point is the practice itself--a process which may include self-reflection, celebration, lament, hope for the future, or all of the above at once.
Many of you have asked whether I would be creating another workbook/playbook for the new year. Well, here it is! I’ve been creating these for at least four years now, and I'm glad people find them helpful. This year's workbook/playbook is called “We Begin Again,” inspired by a poem by Naomi Shihab Nye.
In the spirit of World's Okayest, some of the pages are the same as in past years, but I’ve also added some new features and prompts. One of these days, I’ll partner with one of my graphic design-oriented friends to make it extra pretty. But in the meantime... use this with my blessing.
The workbook/playbook is a PDF file in Google Drive. Once you click on the link, look in the upper right corner of the window--there are options for you to download, print (it’s formatted for front and back), or other actions. Let me know if you run into problems.
I know some of you share this resource with friends, or complete the exercises with a small group--I’d love to hear how it's being used!
May your 2019 be filled with people and things you love, and that love you back.
