Mondo Beyondo 2008: Where will you go?

Okay everybody, now for the fun part. We get to create our intentions and our Mondo Beyondo list for 2008. For those of you who aren’t familiar with this, I let go of declaring resolutions years ago when I realized they didn’t work for me. Mostly they didn’t work because they made me feel like a crappo person. They seemed to be about quitting something I liked (ie. chocolate), starting something I didn’t like (must pick up jogging this year!) and just basically being a better, more perfect and disciplined (get organized!) version of myself.

I prefer starting the year off with declaring what I want to draw into my life and let those items entice me into action. Sometimes the difference here exists in language. For example, instead of saying, “I want to get rid of these saddle bags” it might inspire you more to say, “My intention is to feed my body beautiful, whole foods and swim twice a week.” Or, instead of a vague, “Stop watching tv” you might present an inspiring alternative for yourself: “My intention is to read or knit each night after dinner and complete all of my unfinished craft projects by May.”

It’s up to you, whatever gets you going people! This is what works for me.

After you list your intentions, let’s do the list that is truly Mondo Beyondo status. What are the things you are wanting to manifest that are almost too scary to even write down? The ones that elicit a gremlin response of “You can’t have that!” or “Who are you to ask for that?” or “Fat chance. That will never happen. You’re not a good enough….(fill in the blank)”

Are you nervous? You should be. This list should be a bit dangerous. It should make you feel a little shy and excited. Butterflies abound.

Since I’m not sure how long I have before Ben wakes up, I will start with my one big Mondo Beyondo item: Complete my proposal and find a publisher for my book project. (This one feels scary to write!)
