Focus on systems more than goals. Have vision that excites you so much that you can't wait to get up and attack. Time is just an illusion. I focus on progress goals, take time to celebrate success. Bec we are so focused on - onto the next thing. And the next. Like a hamster on a wheel. Don't know why we got on the hamster wheel. It'd madness. Stop. That's right. Catch your breath. Take a look. How far you have come. Wow. Isn't it amazing? The view looks great from here. Thats right. Stay in this zone just for few more seconds...You have inspired someone last year. Your compliments made a difference. Those flowers you gave made their day. The time you chose to pay attention to your loved ones instead of your phone brought you closer than ever before. And it's 1:23am in the morning and I just finished watching "Gilmore girls" show from 1990s and I'm feeling pretty darn good. And creative. Hence this post. So what was I talking about....right! Celebrating all the beautiful things and people in our life.
All those times when you picked up the phone to call your mom. Or dad. When you felt good hearing their voice or their hugs felt good. Remember that time? I know you do! And the time you went to go visit your grandma; you know she really appreciated you taking time out to see her, to hear her about her weeks and stories she shared with you about her childhood, ones that you coukd listen to for hours. Good times! It's starting to feel good, isn't it? This is the life we live, in moments of joy, where little things are actually big things. And remember the time you chose to let go of a friend or a relationship that was no longer there for you...except that time when it's convenient for them. Good for you to step up and say no more. Because you let that friendship/relationship go, you created room for others to flourish. You have inspired someone last year. Your compliments made a difference. Those flowers you gave made someone's day. The time you chose to pay attention to your loved ones instead of your phone brought you closer than ever before.

Celebrating all the beautiful things and people in our life. Good job on that part. Sometimes the last year was just a "WTF" moment. Well a couple of them. Ha! Who am I kidding?
And that time when someone wronged you and you got cheated especially when you given so much of yourself into it? Yeah it showed up for some really intense spiritual growth. And you did learn the lessons and you have soldiered on in your life. That's right!! Damn right...Yep..i said "right" 3x now. You can count. No worries.
Remember that time you messed up really bad? Like embarrassingly bad. Or at least it seemed like the end of the world at the moment and now it's just kinda "Not as bad". You know why it's not so bad because you hunny had, growth! That's right. Painful at the time, oh so painful but it does bring a new layer out, that you didn't know you had in you. Now you are stronger.
Life is always happening. I wanna give you props for living the best 2016 you could have lived. This year won't come back. So let go of the heartaches, headaches, sadness, depression (we all go through them...we sometimes get smacked in the face to fall way way down...downer than we thought...bit then we come back with compassion and humility...and it's all good if you are still down there. There is no wrong or right place to be....because you are exactly where you are meant to be.
Ok got kinda stoic there!!!
You still reading? Good. 😊 💕 High-five for reading this far. Bec it takes a skill these days to keep reading long posts.
Let's continue to do what matters. Let's fill more hearts with generosity. Bec the more we give, our joy multiplies. And not bec 2017 is here, just because we can. And we should try something new at least once. Who knows you might like it and stay on with it.
Let's say "Fuck no" to people or things that don't matter much or suck the energy right out of you. You know what or who I am talking about. That's the thing, we all have this in our life. Take the learnings and move on. Learn what matters to you, get clear on what you are chasing and why?, Question everything! Religiously. Seriously! I'm not kidding. Question: Why do I watch Netflix? Why is Netflix addicting? Is what I'm watching lifting me up or keeping me down in the dumps. I've been through both situations so I know what it takes to make the courageous choice. You can do it too. I believe in you.
And get over yourself. Over your accomplishments and failures. There are only 2 people at this party - your body end your ego. That's it. Let's stop these parties and focus on serving. No one cares about your medals. Your spirit flies and your joy multiplies when you give, serve others.
Wake up. We took birth on earth to fulfill a purpose...no not life purpose. I'm so sick of talking and hearing about life purpose. No such thing. It's another hamster wheel that's being programming into our little computers, aka our minds. I'll give you a hint - it's about knowing "Who Am I". If I give the answer right away, you won't believe me. It's ridiculously simple. Bec truth is simple.
