So what message did you begin with today? Did you begrudgingly arise today with a Negative attitude? Or did you arise after a good night's rest and willingly be Happy to be alive?
Just as you see this surfer challenging this powerful Wave, on which he is moving rapidly, what will move you today? What is your Motivation for living? Are you stuck in a job of many years like I was and Not have the Courage to move on? What will it take to be on Your Wave? Who will you listen to today? What will make you take the next step? Maybe you have suffered from some sort of Addiction, like Alcohol, or other Drugs. What is your Excuse which you keep telling yourself?
Sooooo, what will it take "Just for Today"_1_? Maybe it will be a change in Attitude, then maybe that will progress to sitting down & assessing your Priorities. Do you sit around posting Selfies on Facebook a lot without ever Physically/emotionally budging? Is that what really thrills you? As you assess those Priorities, maybe you have been thinking of taking a course, maybe going after that College degree? Maybe you have a God-given Talent and you are wasting your time and Drawing Freebies for Friends instead of getting paid for it...I just got asked in a Facebook chat if I do my Photography for Free when I am in Business for myself...I reported back that I am not a Non-profit! How dare another Business person think that I am for Free! LOL!!
The Bottom-line is, will you take the Courageous step to think Outside-Of-The-Box today? Who can you call for help? Ask me what moved me? I'll tell ya in more detail....
SO I suggest you take 3 Steps today:
1. Have a Postive attitude to move forward, if, even in your Thinking!
2. Take a physical step to look into New Resources for yourself, even if you begin Googling, and making those important Phonically rather than gossiping with your so-called Friends. If they really cared about you, they would kick you in the butt and challenge you to get moving---Those are Friends who care deeply for you!
3. Ask a Professional for help, whether a Counselor, a Personal Coach, or a Priest or Minister, or even a Best Friend who is willing to hold you accountable for your Actions, truly, one whom you can Trust!
Be prepared to fall flat on your face and get right back up again, Courageously, & take 3 more steps tomorrow toward that New Goal. This is a Your New Year of Personal Growth.
And lastly, be Proud of yourself tackling the little waves and be prepared to Surf everyday toward a New YOU-Be Proud of yourself for Taking that Newfound Bravery!
At the end of your day, you can feel a New You..which will energize yourself for another great day the very nest day!
Now, get some well-needed rest to tackle another day, and stop gossiping with your so-called, "Friends"!
(Side Note: Earlier, I referenced the phrase, "Just For Today"...a typical Al-Anon phrase used in the 12 Steps of Al-Anon Recovery program in their Book, "Just For Today").
