I actually winced as I typed the title of this post. When I look around me, it becomes perfectly clear that many people have lost their happy. They are so consumed with grief, resentment, guilt, depression…so much so that they no longer ever feel happy. Imagine if every time you sat in the drivers seat you had no destination. You strapped on your seatbelt, pushed the gas pedal and wandered around never reaching a destination. Many of us do just that, we wander. We forget that if we want to reach a specific destination, we must put the address into the Garmin. I hope you all join me as I type Happy into mine. That is where my journey this new year will take me. As we enter an exciting new year, set an intention, know where you want to go and set your mind on the journey to get there. Don’t spend another year wandering aimlessly around, looking back and discovering you are in the same place as the year before. Do the work, make the changes and I promise at the end of the year you will find yourself in a different and better place.
My intention is this;
In 2015, I will focus on the things that are really important. I will look for the God and the good in every person. I will judge less and love more. I will shrug off the actions and words of people trying to hurt me and I will say a special prayer for them as I lay down to sleep at night. I will be the peace this world so desperately needs and I will care for my own soul as if it were a fragile piece of glass. I will find a reason to be happy every single day and I will make an effort to linger in the moments and stop rushing into the next thing my mind tells me I have to do. This will be one of my greatest years and I am excited to get it started.
I’d love to hear your intention!
