It’s been a year of learning the reality of what is, the essence of the universe we live in, moments of great oneness and clarity, moments of confusion and frustration, of breakdowns and the highest highs I’ve ever felt, mindgasms, explosions, beauty, all happening faster and faster.

Next year? Well next year I look forward to what I look forward to right now—living as ME, not in the universe but with it. AS it.

Renee, you stole the words out of my mouth and made them sound even better than I would have said. That’s exactly how I feel about this year.

Yeah, this year flew by very fast.

Highlight? It’s been such a great fucking year, it’s hard to point out any highlight. I went on an awesome roadtrip in the summer, I’ll let that be the highlight.

What I’m looking forward to the most next year is summer and all the big music festivals.

i dont understand the concept of this year and next year. when does this year stop and next year start. is there some kind of breaking point that im not aware of ? its like flying in an airplane and not knowing which country you are flying over. the boundaries are so invisible to me.
explain it svp!!

This year I went to Europe backpacking for a year, and decided what I wanted to do with my life.

Had been to Europe (for 27 days) and really enjoyed it. The stay, the people, the climate, the places to see, the unusual places that I saw….

Very nice Renee :) Not to sound cheesy.. but finding HE was huge for me this year. Although I read books of people who thought like me–I didn’t actually “know” anyone, so I felt pretty ‘on my own.’ And giving up monogamy was awesome too.
Next year I look foward to being done with school finally & quitting my job :)

@ Stonedragon, I understand the blurriness of time you feel–it’s disappearing.

I don’t mean to be contrarian but I’m still looking forward to the first real snow, (only a dusting so far), my son’s 9th birthday next month, holidays with my family . . . there’s a lot of living left in 2011!

but to play along, finding HE, a couple of great trips with the family, and my first full year working from home are going to stay with me. and I’m really curious to see if the Occupy movement can bring about some real change. It’s got power and momentum, now it just has to endure.

I feel like this conversation should get a little more play in once we are actually nearing the end of the year. We still have two whole months lol You crazy HEthens always jumping the gun.
But I do like the idea of celebrating the beginning of each month and looking back on the past one. Why are years more important than months? or weeks? I think that it would be a good habit to take time each week to appreciate everything that has happened and throw a little mental celebration that we get to do it all again

that is what i meant bobby when i said i dont get it ..what means the past year. but then i thought perhaps they mean, one year back from today.
and then i remembered krikey one year ago, in nov. i had a major ankle operation, only using a local , i was wide awake to hear the drills for two hours, just to check my mind!!! imagine that. and then i layed in my living room until april, unable to walk.
in end may i climbed a mountain.
its been all uphill after that!
anyway you are right we should look at each week or even day and see what we did that was of use! and then check our dreams at nite too.

i have a feeling that a major event will occur next year that will change the course of history as we know,something like a pandemic that will kill half of the world population,i think we are overdue for a depopulation event.just a feeling maybe world war 3

stonedragon, awesome! And I was also confused as to whether this meant 2011 or the past 12 months.
If we are talking about the past 12 months, I survived my first snowy climate for winter(I know this doesn’t sound too impressive to those of you who do it every year ;) ), got a job I like and have kept it for a record amount of time, have lived in one apartment for a record amount of time, conquered anxiety and(this is still a work in progress) social awkwardness, started eating healthy, and found HE!!(life changer).
