Ahhhhh…. love the cool weather. There are a few things that make me really sit in awe of the world around me. Perhaps, oddly, fall is one of those things. I find it incredible how the world seemingly dies around us. Heading into dormancy. Where trees give up their leaves, and all growth stops. A true time of rest. Seventh day perhaps.
The death and re-birth that happens in our world is a simple mirror of the change that happens in our lives every year. There is an opportunity coming, and that opportunity is wasted on so many people. As we get on in years, and give up our dreams. Yes. Pause on that thought for a moment, GIVE UP OUR DREAMS… we find ourselves more apt to ignore the opportunity of a new year, a new hope.
So as we approach the end of this year, I would encourage you to already begin seeing January 1st as the start of something new for you. Begin to use this crisp air as an opportunity to record the results of your year. Consider what you have done well, consider what you would like to do better. Your career objectives, family goals, financial efforts…. your health. Your diet, your exercise, your stress levels.
I have already been setting my plans for 2017, and I will take a few days as we get closer, to set goals for each area of my life. Goals that I will then set a plan to achieve. Every year I set a pile of goals, and every year I neglect some, but reach beyond others. The plan is key, execution comes later, but you have to plan.
So, take this away today. If there is ONE thing that fall reminds me to do, and that I would hope it now reminds you to do. Begin to dream big. For more on this, read the Daily Sprout from 10/31. http://www.healthsprout.com/i-am-no-longer-a-slave-to-fear/
