Create YOU, beautiful YOU

The last blog post of 2010! I better make it some sort of emphatic, meaningful tribute to a very, um, “insightful” year!

A friend of mine once said, “why would you have to change? If none of this happened to you, as it happens over time, you wouldn’t be who you are” (paraphrasing). True, in that a few things in life do actually ‘happen to you’, such as receiving a tax bill in the mail, or being in a motor vehicle accident. Some of life’s events are beyond any of your control.

However, most of life, YOU happen to it. You choose, you want, you engage, you plan, you implement, and when things work out, you celebrate. When things don’t work out, you cry. This is how life works. YOU are the common denominator to ALL the good and ALL the bad in your life (within a 98 percentile ranking anyhow). That is not saying that sometimes really, really bad things occur to which we can assign no blame whatsoever, it is just saying that YOU control the majority of your own destiny (which is the main reason that none of the organized religions of the world ever worked for me).

Today is New Years Eve 2010, and my thought that goes out to each and every one of you – old and new acquaintances alike is, “Make 2011 the year that you want it to be.” Get in touch with yourself, your needs, your desires, your creativity, your moxie, your determination and create your very own year for you – devoid of the usual measurements.

Everyone seems to be so focused on the measuring. The RESULTS! Don’t be! BE THE CHANGE that you want to see (Obama-ism). Each and every single day, choose to change your behavior and don’t worry about the results at all. Change one little thing, every day and be genuinely surprised when at the end of the year that you are so much closer to being the person that you actually want to be, and there is nothing more sexy or more appealing than watching someone who has that inner swagger going-on! That person is so confidant, secure and in touch with who and why they really are! That is beautiful! Namaste. Peace to all with as much love, light and laughter as I can muster. Be all you can be!
