What do you wish for in the New Year ...2011.................










A different sort of wish for me...i'm feeling enthused as I incubate a new project..
I am in the process of planning to conduct some 'lifestory scrapbooking' and 'memory box creating' for others.I would like to do this as not only a hobby but as a regular activity and I have a plan to mail out some letters inviting this to happen in Spring of 2011.....it is a dream and passion of mine that lifestory work can be shared in a therapeutic way and i soooo want to facilitate this.I have done a lot of reflecting and exploring and i have a list of 'i can's' and practicalities to my wish.......

I can create a vision board... to embody this more
I can create some nice stationary to invite care homes and hospices to participate.
I can devote some time to this from February of this year as my working hours reduce.
I can work less in my everyday job and focus more on this dream.
I can draw confidence from my exeriences of groupwork and everyday care work.
I can gain support from my friends through sharing my ideas with them.
I can prepare by looking into what has worked in the past with the use of lifestory work especially with the elderly.
I can create a program i can deliver and personalize with some of the individuals willing to participate in this project.
I can breathe.........
I can 'positively' evaluate even the smallest step toward this goal
I can enjoy sharing in someone's 'life story'
I can enable others to feel affirmed and valued by helping them to share there lifestories and express thoughts/feelings.

I can doooo this ... so as i say goodbye to the old year of 2010 ( which has been a lovely year) i start the New Year with enthusiasm and some life experience in addressing this project with balance. Sending my wish out there into the world of wishcasting Wednesday seems to 'bless' it.............Thankyou..

  1. Go for it Carol! I´m a scrapbooker myself, and although my kids are the main focus of my albums I´m getting myself more in front of the camera for them to remember these years.
    As Carol wishes for herself, so I wish for her also.

  8. Great post. I love how specific you made your wish;.
    I think that I am sometimes too generalized in my wishing and dreaming and I can't really notice them coming true or not. Maybe I do that on purpose. You have taught me something in your post.
    As you wish for yourself so I wish for you also.
