There’s a wish most of us have, to start anew with the new year, to reaffirm our goals, be they any of the many forms of self improvement: get fit, lose weight, eat better, be kinder, sleep more, drink less, give up smoking, give up smoking weed, take a vacation, take a break, take a yoga class, call friends, call for the colonoscopy, call the dentist, get new eyeglasses, get new sneakers, get a haircut, get a foil, save money, save a date, save a life, donate clothing, donate cash, donate time. Perhaps you see something on this list familiar to your own life? Or perhaps you want something different. Perhaps you merely want to maintain the status quo…… keep your job, keep your lover, keep your spouse, keep your sanity, keep on keeping on, keep on trucking, keep it up. Ask yourself, Are you hep to the jive? Do you know the score, following the script, following the story? Do you know your lines? Do you know where you are? Do you know where your cat is?
Well, deep breaths people. It’s only January 15th. Take a big chill pill. Put on some soft music. Pour more coffee. Look out the window. 2015 is still out there, waiting, in all it’s bloated promise. It’s waiting for you to get on it, get on your game, put your best foot forward, make a plan, get with the program, stir it up, kick’s it’s ass, grab it by the neck and shake the shit out of it. Run with the pack, leave the fools behind, do what you must. But don’t let 2015 be a big double goose egg on your back window….
Now go on out there and chase down that DREAM!
