It’s 2016! A New Year, A New You!

It’s 2016!!  It’s a New Year,  A New You!…..  I hear it everywhere.  Are so many people unsure of who they are and what they want?  Why is it that all these people know what “WE” want?  Do they know us? Do we even know what we want?  If we don’t know, how will they?

I’m a pretty big fan of goal setting.  I have my lists.  I look ahead.  I love learning.  I even made my vision board and have it in a place that I look at, at least twice a day, while I brush my teeth.  I truly have seen the power of the vision board work in people’s lives-even my own.  Where I have an issue is,  how to get there from here.  When do I know when to take action or not?   The answer, I’ve been told, is in how your body responds to it.  If you are happy, then do it.  If not pass it by.  But my question is this, if your brain resists things that are not your normal, how can your heart feel good about it?  When can you tell if you are resisting or just going along with yourself telling “You” that it is a “no” for you?

When is action in your best interest and when is it resistance?  How do you know it is what you really want?

I have no idea.  This is a pretty big problem.  If I don’t know how to get from where I am to where I want to be and I don’t know what to do or not do then where does that leave me?  My answer?

Take a vacation!poolside

Hup.  That’s what I’m doing.  I am sitting back to see what comes.  I have been chasing my dreams for years and frankly, I am exhausted.  My body is worn out.  My mind is frazzled.  It’s the only thing I CAN do.   I’m not giving up on anything.  I’m not quitting.  I’m just putting everything on hold for a year.  Like I said, a vacation.  Next January, I will revisit my goals and see where I’m at.  Maybe I’ll have a clue by then, or maybe I won’t.  The one thing I do know is that whenever I think I’ve got it all figured out, I don’t.  So, this year, I’m going to wait to see if anything comes to me.  I am going to stop in my tracks and see what comes my way.  For better or worse.  Call it surrender.  Call it what you may.  I think it’s worth a try.

Does any of this sound familiar?  Am I the only person with this dilemma?

If you have had a similar situation, I’d love to hear from you.  In the meanwhile, I’ll be poolside drinking my pina colada!  Maybe you’d like to join me?  I’ll be here weekly to keep you posted.  I’ve never taken a vacation solo or virtual.  My first step is to get a game plan-How to stop.  What a concept.  I’m not sure if it’s even possible, but I’m going to try.  Self-Care 101 here I come!    See you on Facebook! Post me any ideas you have, I’d love to hear and try them!  If you’re joining me, let me know what you find! ….Happy Adventures!
