Does your life feel like a 3-ring circus these days? I know my does. It's been non-stop activities, parties, cooking, entertaining, shopping,etc...since Thanksgiving. I'm exhausted. During these last few day of 2015, might be a great time to take a few moments and stop and do nothing. There's nothing wrong with this form of idleness. We all need time to relax and recharge. It's good for the body, mind, and spirit. It's a proven fact that we need to take time for ourselves and now's the perfect opportunity to do that. This is the time of year for reflection. It's also the time of year for looking ahead. Perhaps you make New Year's Resolutions. I don't, personally, but I do set goals of what I'd like to see happen over the next year. By focusing my attention on what I DO want to have happen, it puts me in a good position to realize those intentions. Attention to the intentions. That's the key, I believe, for true success and happiness. So whatever you want to have happen over the coming months, focus your attention there. Don't worry about what may, or may not, happen. That isn't going to be helpful. All any of us have, in reality, is our present and worrying about tomorrow just wastes time. Spend a few minutes focusing your attention on your hopes and dreams for 2016. Then feel secure in knowing that your intentions are out there in the Universe. If your life feels like a balancing act, why not send your 3-ring circus out of town...at least for a little while. You'll have plenty of time, then, to focus on the very important task of living your life fully in the present. And that's a gift we can all give ourselves.
