Wow! It’s a whole fresh new year—a gorgeous blank slate. Happy New Year 2016! Whoops (sound of brakes screeching)! Are you happy? How do you feel right now? If you need to move the ice pack off your head before you can operate the keyboard, that’s okay. I’ll wait. Open your iPad or your iPhone Notes app, or get out that pen and paper. Let’s take just 5 minutes together, or more, if you find this interesting. Today is the perfect day to ask yourself some questions:
- Is your body comfortable, your heart full, your mind clear and at ease, your spirit at peace? No one is going to see your answers unless you choose to share, so jot down key words, cryptic phrases, or even write out your feelings at length.
- And what about your life and livingness? Do you have the relationships you want? Do you feel loved?
- Is money working for you the way/s you would like?
- Are you and the Divine on friendly terms?
- What about your environment? Does it look pleasant to you? Does the flow work for you? Or is it dull and messy, the closets overflowing and files impossible to navigate?
- Today, how does your life look, compared to what you envisioned on January 1st a year ago?
Wait! Why have I not mentioned RESOLUTIONS yet? I want you to forget the guilt and forget being hard on yourself. Most say we should jump powerfully into our new year with a renewed sense of discipline and determination. Today, as a stress management expert, I’m supposed to talk enthusiastically about goals and resolutions, why they work and don’t work, blah blah blah. But we can cover those tomorrow. And please come back for that piece. As usual, my recommendations don’t go where others usually go. I want your life and work to be as painless and as satisfying as possible.
That’s Upbeat Living. That’s living in the positive. That’s living in support of yourself. Are you in?
