My 2013 Vow to Stop Trying
We’re getting a lot of input this week about how to make the most of a brand new year.
Lots of it is really good advice, too.
I’m a sucker for that kind of input – to make sure I’m optimizing my experience and making life better however possible.
(Any self-help junkies here who can relate?)
I like setting strong intentions and embracing new habits. I love getting clear about big dreams and daring myself to take radical action towards them.
I don’t want to miss out on something life-changing!
And at the same time, I know that perception (that I could do something to make life better) can blind me to the experience that life already IS amazing. That there isn’t anything that needs to change or be different in order to love it fully.
Which is why I’m leveraging my new year’s excitement for resolutions to hereby vow to stop trying.
To stop trying to make the most of it all.
To stop trying to get there and instead realize I already am.
To go with easy instead. And perfect. As is.
To live life like I already won.
Instead of working to get there … to realize I already am.
How else can I enjoy the successes I want to create if I don’t see them when they’re already here?
I vow to stop thinking things should be different than they are. Or that other circumstances would be easier to enjoy.
I intend to remember that happiness is always mine to choose, not to figure out or to create.
I’m just going to allow allow allow myself to feel the sweet spot that is my life.
And to do 2013 justice by being fully present to enjoy it.
We’re talking 2013 LOA strategies on today’s GVU call. Join us at 4 pm est for a lively discussion of a variety of fabulous ways to embrace the new year!
