So many people make New Year’s resolutions and yet very few make it past the first few weeks before they give up. There is a reason for this to happen. Mainly its because people are socialized as to what is expected of them like stopping smoking, losing weight, being more focused on their careers and myriads of other agendas that may not match up with what you want for yourself.
I am going to suggest to you that you not make any resolutions this year. I am going to suggest that instead you focus on being the person that you choose to be. You may ask how one does this? It’s really very simple. You get quiet and allow yourself to think about what it is that matters to you in your life. You see, you only have one life and the manner in which you spend your time is the way that you are using up your life. So, instead of having life use you up, how about you using up your life to do all the things that are important to you and that most assuredly includes fun!
An interesting thing happens when you focus your attention on what really matters to us. Without your even realizing it you will manage to bring into your life just those things that you were desiring all along.
The problem that most people have in making their lives be what they want is that they find excuses. Maybe you think that you don’t have the money or the time or the ability to get away. Maybe you feel that you are stuck in a rut and can’t find a way to get yourself out.
I will tell you something very interesting here. Sam, my webman gave me some homework a couple of weeks ago as I was getting a bit stressed over some things that I had to deal with. He suggested that I write down those things that were simply pleasurable to me. Sadly, I failed his mission because I always had the pleasure of someone else tied to my own pleasure, so I had to think deeper and figure this out for myself. For me seeing new places while being stunned with the history and beauty, meeting new people and being intrigued with other cultures, eating tasty food, or simply laughing with a friend over something silly were my simple pleasures.
Inside of a week of finally completing this homework that Sam gave me I found myself having a blast with my Godson doing all sorts of fun things together. We went to the San Diego Zoo and were delighted with some of the animals there, enjoyed many tasty meals and conversations together and travelled up into the canyons of the Santa Monica Mountains thrilling him with all the tight turns overlooking the valley below. We also took the training together that I spoke of in last week’s weblog where he impressed many with his fun and easy going manner. To him everything that is new is an adventure and fun. Who wouldn’t want to be around someone life that?
So, I ask you, what do you have to lose? Go figure out what you truly find to be simple pleasures and go enjoy them as soon as you can. Life is to be enjoyed, and the best way is through positive experiences that you create for yourself. Hell, if a 26 year old can do that, how hard can it be for you? Answer: Only as hard as you make it – that was my learning and hopefully won’t be yours.
