Ahhhh… New Year, next chapter…No pressure right? Let’s see, well, the next chapter does require a new sense of preparedness; somewhat like a blank canvas. The question is, should we consider a “next chapter” because we’re in a New Year? Shouldn’t we feel somewhat content and present with where we are? Or should we immediately associate the New Year with establishing a new expectancy of ourselves? To be clear, there’s absolutely nothing wrong about recharging, beginning a new phase with the goings of the new year, but as millennials, and ever evolving individuals, lets shift a bit of our energies into celebrating our “nows.” Celebrating where we are and appreciating how far we’ve come. As the saying goes, “I’ve prayed for this moment in my life,” and for that we celebrate those current victories, and usher challenges for more victories. For that we embrace the present. For that we become more mindful, and less anxious for the next bite of success. Success, and the chase of it is quite relative and subjective. We all have our own ideals, perspectives, and theories of how we should exist successfully. For some we strive so tirelessly for success due to the fear of failure, and the repeated mistakes we watched our family, friends, and even ourselves inflict. For some we seek to retain our reputation. I’ve once read, “ Your reputation is not located in you. It resides in the minds of others,”-Wayne Dyer. Obviously, we don’t control our reputation, others do. Regardless of what good or bad deed we construct; so might as well live your way.We stretch ourselves thin, stacking more goals, tasks, and resolutions to only find ourselves doing the same act over and over again, each year. Growth, must certainly persist, it’s simply non-negotiable. This is all part of change. Change big or small is change. Change has no measurement to success, in which we all presumably try to achieve each New Year. Lets release ourselves from the pressures of “New Year, New Me,” and really approach this belief to become spiritually responsible, and create a lifestyle that allows us to reach our goals while we free space to consecrate our mind and spirit to be at PEACE. I mean, isn’t that the end goal?…to find peace. Disappointment, change, and challenges will meet you this year and EVERY year. Lets assure that our “New Year’s” agenda is God’s agenda, if not, please proceed 2016 with caution.
