When the new year begins for me there is always a certain period of time that I feel anxious, excited, stressed, exhilarated, worried about how this next year will go. When speaking with a friend this morning I got present to the fact that while it is the end of the year, it is nothing more than the next day and the only significance is what I put on it.
I can choose March to be when I take on a new course rather than at the beginning of the year. I can choose to take on my fitness and commit to it in February instead of January 1. Do you get my point?
We often get hooked by if it doesn’t happen for me in the first month of the year or school year then the rest of the year is no good and this just isn’t the truth. The truth is we can make anything happen at any time and often just need to set the plan and timeline to make it happen. That is all it really is.
When I get hooked in my life by anything other than that then I go into a state of worry, fretting, wondering how it will all work out, if ever.
Life and everything we do in it is a choice. It may not seem like it in the moment but no matter what is happening in our life we have to choose something. We can choose to worry, we can choose to be happy, even when there is only one option in front of us, it is still an opportunity to choose it.
That’s actually pretty cool when you can understand that.
Take a moment today and look to see what you are really choosing. Are you choosing to be in panic or are you choosing to be happy and content? Are you choosing that career that you are currently in or are you choosing to resist it?
Look at the big picture of your life, journal some about it all and see what you see. It may move you into some serious action or have you see how great things really are.
