A few days ago, while filing receipts for my first tax return I came across something unexpected and it made me smile. It was a list I’d written and forgotten, from the beginning of 2011. I wrote it during a training course, we were asked to consider ‘who we are’ but I listed what I wanted to be too. Some aspirations are achievable like being on time, having a real fire or being alive. But I also had some unachievable aspirations – wanting to be Regina Spektor, Doctor Who’s Assistant and an eagle. Achievable or not, what you want to be is part of who you are. What do you want to be in 2012?
