Not Just Another New Year's Resolution....

The book of Awakening....Having the life you Want by Being Present to the Life you Have.......  by Mark Nepo

I do not make many New Years Resolutions, however I came across this incredible journal/book last year well into 2011.  I decided at that time to wait for 2012- January 1st. and use it as a daily inspirational know the book you pick up on a daily basis to get you started off on a good note.

"A year's supply of inspiration every day and the perfect gift for yourself and your friends." -Oprah Winfrey

Cancer survivor, poet, and philosopher Mark Nepo has consciously allowed life to move through him. The Book of Awakening is the result of his journey of the soul and will inspire others to embark on their own. Nepo speaks of spirit and friendship, urging readers to stay vital and in love with this life, no matter the hardships. Encompassing many traditions and voices, Nepo's words offer insight on pain, wonder, and love. I did not read it in it's entirety, but yes I peeked for sure!  Each entry is accompanied by an exercise that will surprise and delight the reader in its mind-waking ability.

As stated above, I tend to not make too many New Year's Resolutions, but this one I intend to follow on a daily basis.  Not since my Big New Year's Resolution/projects of several years ago  have I made this kind of commitment!

For your information as a follow up to my completed resolution of several years ago, mentioned pantry has remained a topic of great pride and accomplishment.  I will happily show it off to anybody who enters my home. 

What are your goals for 2012?  Won't you join me?
