YOU WILL NEVER GET “IT” DONE…

by Michael on January 3, 2014

…so relax into it and have fun along the way! 

Happy 2014 Everyone! 

I hope all of you had a wonderful time celebrating the holidays with your friends and family and ringing in the New Year in whatever fashion is "happy" for you! This time of year is such a reflective time for me and whether it is true or not, I have always had a belief that the way in which I ring in the new year on New Year's Eve actually sets the tone for the coming year. Whether or not this could fall under "superstitious" is up for question, but what I can say is that it has somewhat held true for me as I look back on year's past.

When I look back on 2013 I can say for me it was definitely a year of intense energy, good, bad or indifferent; simply intense. It also carried a good amount of uncertainty and a little discomfort at times, yet it was mixed with a good amount of synergistic connections – some new, some already existing, deep introspection and personal growth. I remember the way I celebrated last year and well, let's just say it holds up to my theory. 

This New Year's Eve however had a very different feel to it. And I say that with no judgment as to "good or bad", "better or worse" really; just different. I worked this year on New Year's Eve which was new for me, at least for the past few years. So I had a clear "set" schedule ahead of me as opposed to year's past. As represented so perfectly in the picture above taken from the spot I was "working" for the evening (BTW.. no filter on that!); it turned out to be a day and night beautifully balanced between Giving (happily serving others as DJ/MC of their celebration) , receiving (financial sustenance for the work), fun joy-filled celebration (finished in time to ring in the new year and dance my butt off with some of my closest friends), and finally a strong sense of gratitude for where I Am right now and quality connections with close friends (ended with a few friends and a few beers on the beach with the sound of gentle waves breaking under a star filled sky).  

What does all this mean to me? Well  given that this is my belief (belief= a thought you keep thinking until it becomes reality in your world) and following my whacky theory; what I choose to glean from my New Year's Eve experience this year and therefore set my intention forth is the following:

A year filled with clarity and clear direction. A year of inspired action, fun and fulfilling service resulting in flourishing channels of abundance. A year of soul connections, synergistic partnerships both business and personal. A year filled with laughter, joy, a love and zest for life and a love for those that are part of it. 

And finally, a deep, deep gratitude for ALL of it. 

So with that I ask you, what is your prediction for YOUR year to come? Whether you choose to adopt my crazy formula for predicting it or not really doesn't matter. What truly matters is the intention you set forth right now as you take the time to think about the year your are about to have. What will your year be filled with? What and who will you choose to surround yourself with?

I will also add that specific goals and resolutions are great, but I challenge you to take the time to find the "feeling place" behind those goals first and set forth your intentions from that place for the year to come. THEN begin making your lists of resolutions and specifics. Set the stage, open the space and get into the "feeling place" of where, what and who you want to be and how you choose to feel BEFORE you begin your lists and just watch how the specifics fall right into the space you created for them, ever so perfectly. 

I'll end with a recent post I wrote to a friend who was reflecting on his past year as I think it wraps all this up pretty nicely:

I've come to accept more and more (in my wise and oh so elder years) that we will never get it "done". Though a little cliche' but true; it is the journey not the destination that we are to savor and enjoy. Even the seemingly dark and "bad" parts of it bless us with the understanding of how awesome the good parts can be and even more powerful; they ignite our desire to strive and stretch ourselves out of our comfort zones to reach them. So glad you are on the other side of it and back to enjoying the journey. May 2014 be your best brightest year yet. Aloha. 

I wish the same for all of you.

We are infinite and evolving beings… we will never get it done. So let's RELAX and have fun with all of it, shall we? 

THAT in the end IS the end goal. Aloha.
