But the new year just doesn't hold the same exciting savory flavor of the new and good and hopeful things that most folks believe a new year will bring. It's not that I'm not a hopeful person- quite the opposite. I hold onto hope like it's the only saving me from flying off this planet of ours in a whirlwind of chaos and frustration and disillusionment.
I just don't get into all the hullabaloo of the once a year celebration. I don't make any resolutions because what I need/want/know/believe changes throughout the year. What I think I need/want to do on December 31st might not be a factor by January1st or 2nd or April 19th---whatever. If there's one thing I'm consistent in, it's changing the old mind.
My mood changes too so when I might start out on January 1st thinking of all the great and wonderful changes I'm going to make inward and outwardly, as soon as the mood switches gears, all those terrific ideas fly out the window at the speed of light.
This year seems to be a little bit different. I'm thinking that I am going to make a resolution of sorts. I've decided that I am going to DO SOMETHING. Sounds simple enough, right?
Do I have something specific in mind? Heck yeah. I've got several somethings in mind. And they're all the same things I've been trying to do for the last 4 or 5 years. But this year, it's different. My goal for 2013 is: DO.
Take action. DO SOMETHING. Do ANYTHING. Just get up off my big fat duff and DO SOMETHING.
I'm hoping to stop sitting here trying to figure out what to do and just start somewhere and DO SOMETHING. Just one thing at a time, and see how far I get.
I'm hoping to figure out what stops me from doing and keeps me idle.
- Is it laziness?
- Is it fear of failure?
- Is it lack of motivation?
- Is it being to secure in my comfort zone?
- Is it from being overwhelmed because there's too much?
- Is it because my excuses are state of the art?
So, no more inaction. It's all about DOING for me. And I'm almost sure that I mean it.
What's your number one goal this year?
