The rockets red glare and bombs bursting in air . . .

This is the second year in a row I have posted about this timely topic; I love creating blog traditions!   

July 1 was the 183rd day of the year. Since 2012 is a leap year with 366 days total, that means today, July 2, is the first day of the second half of 2012!

Why am I bringing this up? So you can begin celebrating your 2012 triumphs to date, of course!

What have you accomplished this year that just six months ago seemed impossible or a distant possibility?

What new trails have you blazed?

What promises have you kept?

What chances did you take?

What teeny, tiny or wondrously huge steps have you taken in the direction of your dreams?

I think that since folks are already planning parties, picnics and pyrotechnics for the Fourth of July, it’s a fantastic time to combine our patriotic triumphs with our personal ones – and celebrate them all!

Don’t be shy, this is the season for aiming high and lighting up the sky. Even if you don’t tell your friends and family what you are up to, why not let those bright lights and loud booms ignite a bit of personal pride?

Start planning now to make this Fourth of July your personal Independence Day. Light-up your life by counting your successes. (Most of us, particularly women, spend way more time thinking about what we haven’t done, than what we have done.) 

List them all – big and small, and then, when you are watching “the rockets red glare and bombs bursting in air” congratulate yourself on your 2012 accomplishments thus far, and all the exciting ones that lay ahead.  

To get started, click here for your free Wishful Thinking Works downloadable “Ta Da” List. (A “Ta Da” List is much better than a “To Do” List, because it’s for all the cool stuff you have already done.) Have fun!

Happy Independence Day!

  1. I am so good at “to do” lists, but never thought of a “TA DA” list. Thanks Patrice and Happy Fourth to you !
