New Year's Day Turned on It's Head
On this day the whole world vibrates with the energy of LACK. Where am I failing? Where must I do better? How must I CHANGE?
We enter a new set of numbers set forth by the cosmos and focus on our deficiencies with a new energy and a new attitude.
Maybe, some have the perseverance to effect actual long term change. But, the statistics show otherwise. Most of us start with dedicated, real intentions but proceed to lose our focus, our way in it all. We get lost once more in the muck of our lives as time goes on and a year from now we will reflect on, write down, and state to people once again the same (or tweaked versions of the same) resolutions and intentions.
One year older and with less conviction of them coming to fruition, having failed ourselves again.
So, why do we do it? Societal pressure? Everyone else is, right?
Most people end up looking at the previous year with distain and everything that went wrong. They are happy to be rid of it, wipe the slate clean, and start over.
But, is the turning of the 31st to the 1st on the calendar really wiping the slate clean? Are our convictions and degree of determination to succeed this time going to be different? Or will they be fleeting once again?
What if we turned it all on it's head? What if we looked at everything we actually ACCOMPLISHED and what went RIGHT last year?
What if we took stock and inventory with gratitude, instead of scrutinizing our deficiencies and how we're NOT good enough as we are, how are lives currently are?
What kind of New Year's Celebration would THAT cause?
A New Year that would start on January 1:
- THIS is what I accomplished in 2018!
- THIS is how my life is better!
- THIS is what I will continue to do!
(and that's it)
So, for 2019, I urge you to NOT look at where you FUCKED UP, but where you ARE succeeding as a person, and in your life. Don't list resolutions and lust over change. List THOSE, where you are proud of yourself instead.
Food for thought.
