The past is over, the future has not happened yet and the only time is right now…the present….
So many things have happened blessings and upsets but no matter what- it is time for us to move forward. All the things that have happened to you, me and others is now the past and behind us. Do not continue to dwell in the past it will prevent you from moving forward. There are many things that you, I and others would like to happen, however the future is not predictable and the only thing we can do is prepare for it. We all need to begin living in our present time and moments so we do not miss out on what is important. Remember “slowing down”? If not- go read it…
2011 has been an awaken year for me. I have lost loved ones that I will continue to honor by my actions and celebrating their life. I have begun to define my personal and professional goals and have put myself in a position to fulfill them. No more talking about it- it is time for action.
If you are someone that makes resolutions make them realistic, do not set yourself up for failure. Give yourself obtainable goals with time lines. Some day and One day are not days of the week and they are surely not on the calendar. Re-define your goals, re-define your life. Start putting things into perspective…start making things happen for you!
If you plan on losing weight or “dieting” for 2012 do some research be realistic…How many years/times have you said that and it still has not happened. Find a program or create a meal plan that you know you can stick to. If you are thinking of changing careers or going back to school…stop thinking and come up with a plan. If you are in debt and or with bad credit…get out of it; do not know how… research it and or ask someone who can show you how. Not happy with your living situation…change it and stop complaining. Do not like your social scene…switch up your game and change it.
It is insane for any of us to think that things will change without us putting forth an effort. The definition of insanity is doing the same things over and over and expecting a different outcome. Stop the insanity and madness think about how you can become a better you in 2012. Eliminate the nonsense and unnecessary “stuff” in your life. Think about how you can make things happen for you in 2012. Some people believe that how you bring in the New Year physically and mentally will define how you will be in the New Year. I happen to be one of them. I will bring in the year focused, positive, smiling, and happy in praise and surrounded by genuine love!
I wish you and your family and friends a prosperous, safe, happy New Year….talk to you in 2012!!
