300 - Fun Things to Do!

300 - Instead of making New Year's Resolutions this year, declare a theme for your year! My theme for 2012 is going to be "Exploring Possibilities". I thought of "Health and Wellness", but that sounded a little boring, so I decided that if I explore lots of possibilities, that can include health, fun, nutrition, adventures -- just about anything. And if I want to declare a theme for each month, or even week, or day, then I will. Themes are very flexible, while resolutions just beg to get broken and often end up to be disappointing. Who wants to start out a brand new year like that? If you do come up with your own theme, please do share by clicking on the comments section.

Since I want to eat more happy foods this year, and I was looking for a New Year's greeting, the above sign that I found at our local health food store was just perfect synchronicity.

I have always liked the term "possibilitarian", which was coined by Norman Vincent Peale to mean a person who sees the possibilities in almost any situation. So I will be a possibilitarian for the year of 2012 for sure!

My daughter gave me this calendar for Christmas before I had even told her of my 2012 theme. Hooray!

"The only way of discovering the limits of the possible is to venture a little way past them into the impossible." - Arthur C. Clarke

Wishing you a wonderful year of good health, fun adventures, and lots of possibilities!


  1. Wow, your post just jolted me. I have been searching for a word to define my new year, I hope you don't mind sharing possibilities. It is so positive and allows for action.

  2. Carol, I think you and I have a lot in common. May be why we have connected with one another. I have been thinking about making possibility my word for the year. The jury is still out though. Thanks for your friendship this year and for your encouragement. Looking forward to supporting one another in the year to come. Rae
