goals for 2007

I don't do 'resolutions.' That's just a fancy word for 'rules' and I'm not into imposing rules on myself. I think the reason so many 'resolutions' fail is that it is human nature to hate being boxed in with rules, self-imposed or not.

but goals? hell yeah I have goals. Things I want to do this year:
  • become more of my true self
  • learn more love and compassion
  • grow closer to God/dess ♥
  • learn to listen to my spirit and FOLLOW MY INSTINCTS!!!
  • further develop my soulfriendships with Nimajneb and Hannah
  • be more active in changing the world: leave 'you are beautiful' notes, smile more at people, strike up conversation with more strangers, flaunt my body hair, wear curvy-pride shirts and figure-hugging outfits.
  • create more; making jewelry, painting, drawing, modeling, photographing (! and add a deliberate 'flaw' to remind me that 'flaws' are beautiful!)
  • post WHEN I FEEL LIKE IT, without worrying that I am going to flood my friends page and my favorite post of the bunch will be ignored. I know that isn't true, and if it is, it's not a good enough reason.
  • spend more time and effort communicating with my lovely friends; commenting back, commenting on their posts, IMing, and calling. Not any ritual amount, but following instincts instead of being so O-C about doing it 'in order.'
  • go to Glasgow and meet clown_frog and maybe kashlamar! and of course spend a lot of delighted time with my beautiful soulfriend shioneh!!!
  • have shioneh and die_fiend come down, hopefully during RenFest season!!! and hopefully have my firekat (kmiotutsie) come down too! *dreams* This must happen. *is firm with the universe, shakes finger for emphasis*
  • spend more time with sabr and malignlibra
  • meet more of my lj friends! there are a ton I want to meet, we'll see who I actually manage to make plans with. ;-) at the very least, I must meet kmiotutsie and sunshinepill.
  • find at least a handful of new amazing people to mutually adore. (and hopefully some who are Aquarius!)
  • set firm plans for International Women's Day next year (post to come about that!)
  • dance more, maybe start taking bellydancing classes again.
  • get at least one tattoo!
  • find more of my meaningful rings.
  • dye my hair purple, like I have ALWAYS WANTED.
  • help my little sister get the courage to do what she needs to do.
  • tell my parents I'm 'bisexual' and be officially disowned (after I figure out whether or not they will keep me from talking to little sis, she is more important than me getting the satisfaction of never having to talk to my dad again)
  • go skinnydipping at least once!
  • go to at least one concert!
  • have at least three photoshoots.
  • do at least three self-portrait shoots (hopefully a lot more, but I gotta get some better lighting)
  • Self-educate: read 88 books this year; keep a running list of them, and post an update every eight books, with a SHORT summary.

I think these are wonderful goals! I agree with what you said about resolutions and why they rarely work. I love that you don't box yourself in with self imposed rules, you are so wise and free, and I admire that. Your post reads less like "resolutions" or goals, and more like a wishlist.... "things I want to do FOR myself". I love that focus. I think we are raised to think that doing things for ourselves (taking time to create, resting, dancing, getting a tattoo even) is selfish, and it isn't. It's crucial. It takes self understanding and wisdom to see that, and strength to own it. So hooray for Bel! I am going to try to follow your example. Also, you have me missing the Ga. Renaissance Festival! It's been YEARS since I've been there. My best friend used to work it, and I'd come up and work it with her for four or five days every year after the Fla. festival season ended (I worked the Bay Area Festival for about fourteen years!) What fun!
belenen ══╣dancy╠══
thank you! I hope you do focus on self-growth activities! and RenFest is one of my favorite things EVER. ;-)

.x. wiggles happily .x.

I love your goals. Especially the part of hanging with me and SabR more ;) It tickles me in ways I can't express in text. I'll have to give you a big hug next time I see you [hopefully soon ^.^]

I love how good your goals are going to make you feel and make others feel good as well, that's awesome.
sabr ══╣╠══
x| agrees |x

A hug for you can't come soon enough! I need to volcalize my goals...

Man, you are so dang cool.
I LOVE leaving "you are beautiful" notes everywhere, in fact, its my graffiti tag.
And I openly tell strangers they are beautiful. As long as I am safe about it, it should be fine, I figure. haha.

I want to get a tattoo, too. It hurts how much I want mine. You are too cool, you know?
belenen ══╣curvygirl -- art (Zorn fireglow)╠══
oh hell yeah I am so dang cool! and so are you. We need to meet and blow up the world with too much coolness in one place. XD

I totally tell strangers they're beautiful too, though I still have a hard time telling guys that because I do NOT want them thinking I'm hitting on them, but I'm gettin' bettah.
woah_the_kettle ══╣╠══
TRUTH!!! Where you livin' now? I thought I read Georgia at one point, but could be wrong. If it's true, I'm living in Tallahassee, Florida, so visiting may in fact not be that difficult.

Yeah, usually I'll tell girls straight up, but guys I have to debate whether they are "safe" or not.

so so cute....

i love your goals!

i want so badly to do all of those too.

i think you'll look great in purple hair,
i once had it and it was the best ^__^
belenen ══╣vivacious╠══
thanks! I am so looking forward to the purple hair! ;-)

I'm all for goals rather than rules and resolutions. A part of me will always rebel against imposed limitations, even self imposed ones.
belenen ══╣wild╠══
I KNOW! *is a rebel*

I LOVE the things you want to do this year!

My hair is purple, and has been for a few months now. I thought 'fuck it' in the end!
belenen ══╣curious╠══
oh AWESOME I so want to see pictures NOW!!!!!
katielilie ══╣╠══
Skinny dipping is divine. I strongly recommend it. Awesome goals.
belenen ══╣veneration╠══
oh I totally agree, there is nothing like it! *dreams*
in_withbothfeet ══╣╠══
These are EXCELLENT! I so relate to not wanting to flood the Flist, therefore having the most important ones be skipped. I didn't know anyone else thought like that!

Just wanted to let you know I get very excited when I see an update from you and more will be even better.

Really, it's ironic because I was just in the middle of typing up my own goals, earlier today. then decided not to post them yet since I've been so...posty. Ha! But now I'm going to post them soon anyhow!
belenen ══╣revolutionary╠══
hee hee, we can recover from perfectionism together! XD

and awwwwwww

POSTY POST!!!!! I get so excited for your posts too!!!
dragonwine ══╣Amelie: Good deed!╠══
