If I were to write your horoscope, it would say: "This is the year to cast aside doubts, fears, and caution. This is the year to let yourself fly." How do you do that? It's like this...
We all have a dream ,we do. But if you haven't thought about it for awhile, if you haven't developed it in your mind in full living color, then now is the time to do so. Ending a year is so symbolic. While in reality, it's just another new day, mentally we are casting off all the old, shaking off the troubles and blasting through the bumps and roadblocks. They were so last year. Let's refresh that dream of what we want life to be and remind ourselves -- in excruciating detail -- what that looks and feels like. Now we are ready to make it happen.
If you are going to expend the energy to dream, don't be a wimp. Dream it and do it. You don't have to do it all today, right now, this minute, but if you know in your heart of hearts that you will never do it, don't torture yourself. If it is something that you will never do, it is not because you are weak or you are bad. It's because it's not you. It's not your real dream. And that's okay. Congratulate yourself for recognizing this and moving on. Don't brush by this part. This is the most important. Are you sure? Okay, when you are, read on.
For those of us lucky enough to have experienced the feeling of "right," it's as if something was just placed into its custom setting and clicked right into place. The only better word to describe it than "click" might be "pling." It's magic. It's effortless. It's just, well, right. Now don't get frustrated if that feeling has been elusive or you don't know what the heck I'm talking about. Maybe you have to start slower. First decide if anything about your dream doesn't sit right. Do you have any physical feelings of distress, discomfort, or conversely of lightness and easiness. How would you describe your emotions or your moods while thinking of this dream? These are important road signs -- subtle but very telling. Listen to them. Read them. Heed them.
When you find the right dream, you simply need to put one foot in front of the other. One step at a time. That's all. There should be a big "Start Here" bubble just in front of you. Interestingly, it's the same place you should be if you've discovered you've been chasing the wrong dream. Boy have you got some interesting discoveries ahead. There is a fantastic journey awaiting you. I can't wait for you to set out on the path.
Have you got your dream all worked out? Do you know what it tastes, smells, looks and feels like? Then take any step that is going to bring you closer to that reality. MOVE. Are you still wondering? Then keep trying things on, but do so in a very mindful, purposeful manner. Remain open, remain ready, and as soon as you see your opening, spread your wings and soar.
For some of us, the answers are right underneath our noses. We've been sitting on them all along and just didn't realize it. For others we've been fooling ourselves or there's something bigger yet to be discovered. Which is it for you? You will never know unless you throw caution to the wind. This is your dream. Give it everything you've got. And it's the new year, so if you've been waiting for the right moment, it has arrived.
