Looking at the date kind of weirds me out. Surreal almost. But real as hell. It’s 2013! The Mayans believed it marked a changing time, a shift. Not the end of the world, obviously.
They believe life is cyclic, which it really is, if you think about it. A life is created in a woman in a cycle. When I think of Chakras and work on getting the assigned color to shoot out of me in the assigned location, I watch them cyclone out of me…just saying.
Lot of fucking circles around the topic of life, which is really just energy. You know that, right? Everything is made up of the same exact things. My bed is the same as my dog. I’m the same as my laptop. If you get right down to it.
We’re all moving at much different speeds, of course. But you know why we are so lucky to be born humans? We have self-awareness. We can step outside of ourselves and see ourselves from an observer perspective. The dresser won’t do that. He, yes he, will never step outside himself to say Am I being a good dresser? Am I working the smartest I could work? That handle has been needing repair for some time now, time to take action!
Everything is animate to me. Even a rock, since they change over time…it has life, everything changes. Things that have moving pieces, like my laptop, Daisy, they have names. Or my old laptop, Olga. You could probably envision the difference between the two. One light and playful, one old and having to work hard to do things. Not that all Olga’s are old, mind you. They just are in my mind.
This year, it’s time to start saying Yes. Think about your dreams and goals and say Yes. I’m going to make that happen this year. Envision your goals.
Don’t have them? You’ve got some work to do. I used to never have goals. My goal was make enough money to pay my bills and enjoy life with the rest of your time. Not that I don’t enjoy life now. I just used to over enjoy, let’s say. I still do.
It’s important to take inventory on yourself. Just like you do on your car every quarter, you should tend to yourself, taking a quarterly inventory on you and your life. Taking inventory let’s you look at your life from that outside perspective…from a self-aware stance.
Are my actions and priorities what they need to be to get me where I want to go? Are all my handles on tight? Am I truly putting it all in, and just saying yes, yes, I’m going to make this happen this year! No doubt. I can taste it, I just KNOW it’s gonna go down!
So what’s your goal for this year? Fuck Resolutions. Let’s set goals. This way, there’s no mistakes’, just lessons. You mess up a resolution, you messed it up, why not just give up altogether now? Right?
You mess up a goal? You learn what not to do next time and keep striving, keep driving. It’s work. Don’t think I’m going to be like one of those people that say things will change overnight. You need to be committed, engaged, and enthused about what it is your striving for over the long haul. It’s a life style, not magic.
We can work together, to support each other and encourage each other. Just by sending our energy out to you from the core of Blogville, out to the world. We can give energy so freely because it is all around us, but of course you know that. Pulsing, flowing, in a cyclic like fashion. Abundantly present.
Go be Dapper, Blogvillians!
