The last time I wrote here, In my April 30th post, I named some prominent milestones in my recent life. I expressed great gratitude for the progress I have made in the last year. I urged all of us to think about how much we have dealt with and achieved. I hoped everyone would give themselves credit for meeting the challenges of the previous year or so. A stalwart group of writer friends, and I, had just finished The Ultimate Blog Challenge, writing 30 articles over the course of April. Wow!
For me, that was a joy. It was what I wanted to do. It took about 3-4 hours every day (EVERY DAY) for a month, but it was a thrill and a delight. I looked forward, every afternoon, to creating my own piece and then seeing what my writer friends were sharing that day. I was in the Flow. The group that finished were in the Flow. Our passion and the Flow carried us.
Today is the half-way point of the year! And today, I invite you to think back to New Year’s 2022, and to what you thought you would like from your year. Some of you wrote out goals or even posted them on your wall. Some wrote “resolutions” that never resolved anything. Most “resolutions” are forgotten within a couple of weeks. What were yours? Lose weight? Increase income? Have more satisfying relationships? Plan/take a trip? Organize your office? Start posting book reviews? Meet a famous person? Take a minute or two to make notes on what you thought you wanted and what you actually got, so far; put those notes in your journal or in the Notes section of your smartphone, under “2022 Milestones”. Now observe:
WHAT YOU GOT IS WHAT YOU REALLY WANTED. PEOPLE VOTE WITH THEIR FEET. WE PUT ENERGY INTO WHAT WE REALLY WANT.
So how do your milestones/achievements differ from what you said you wanted at the top of 2022? Now here you are, with half the year still available. You have 182 1/2 days to steer toward your desired life, relationships and business. I don’t need to know, but you do: what do you really want the rest of your year to be like? Six months from now, what qualities of Life and what achievements would you like to look back on with satisfaction? Who do you want to be in the remainder of 2022?
Are you flying easily through your year? Then you are in synch with your goals and values, so carry on! Yay you!
In my daily series this month, I hope to strongly convince you that positive living is the way to be, and it results in greater health and happiness and joy. It’s more fun! And that would be me and you, shaping our lives anew, ever more Healthy Happy and Loving Lifesm!
