An ancient Japanese legend promises that anyone who folds a thousand origami cranes will be granted a wish by a crane, such as long life or recovery from illness or injury. The crane in Japan is one of the mystical or holy creatures (others include the dragon and the tortoise), and is said to live for a thousand years. In Japan, it is commonly said that folding 1000 paper origami cranes makes a person's wish come true. This makes them popular gifts for special friends and family. (Wikipedia)
Congratulations to my son for reaching his goal! I on the other hand have settled for 250 cranes and feel quite accomplished. In the process of folding so many cranes I have gained greater clarity. This clarity is a key step in reaching any goal or in making one's wishes come true.
What do you wish for in 2011? How are you gaining clarity? Pull out your journal or better yet, tear out the pages and get folding.
