Getting started, again

shutterstock_106243226

We started off the year with high hopes.

We were going to find love!
Start new jobs!
Let go of old hurts!

Now that it’s March, it’s time to do an evaluation.
Are you any closer? Are you have the sort of realistic conversations with yourself that are going to stop you from repeating the same old, same old? Or are you still back in 2013?

I hope as you’re reading this that you are thinking back on the short time since the turning of the year and you’re already proud of how far you’ve come, but in case you aren’t, here are some ideas to help you get back on track.

1. Time to affirm your intent. Remember the feeling and place you were in to make you set a big intent in the first place? Maybe you were worn out. Maybe you were on fire with the passion of a new idea. Even if you’re not in the same place you were when you originally made you’re intent, affirming it means you’re still saying “yes!” to that idea. Regardless of where you are today, you are just as committed to your dream.

2. Set visual reminders. I’m not above taking a page out of a teen girl’s book and leaving decorating my walls with reminders. Whether that’s notes on the bathroom mirror or refrigerator to remind myself of a new mindset or empty boxes in my bedroom to remind me to finally purge my closet of all the things I don’t need, a visual reminder is a tangible shift from seeing things the way they’ve always been.

3. Make an appointment with yourself. A boss I had taught me how invaluable it can be to make appointments with yourself, especially living in our fast-paced culture. You have someone asking you to get coffee (not necessarily a bad thing) and so you look down at your calendar and find an open place. If you’re like me, this might happen half a dozen times in a week and so you keep filling up the open places in your calendar with meaningful conversations and meetings. But then you arrive at the end of the week and realize you’ve left no time for your own plans or progress. Before you make it to Monday, sit down and find a block of time that can be added to your calendar that is reserved for the tasks that are hanging over your head. Writing? Organizing? Going to the gym? Sometimes it feels selfish to save time for you, but you would never tell a friend that making their own positive progress was selfish, so why is it for you?

So where are you getting started?
It’s possible you don’t feel progress being made because you never set an intention to begin with.
Check out this Year of Intent intention made my Mallika Chopra:

Since originally posting about her new book, Mallika has been updating, affirming and responding to the comments left by other users. It keeps her motivated and, most importantly, focused on accomplishing a satisfying task- her newest book.

If it’s March and you lasted a good week on your resolutions and intentions, that’s fine. We’re here to get you started again.
So, again, I’ll ask where are you getting started?
What’s it going to take to get going?

The Best Year of Your Life! The Best Minute of Your Life!

This one liner is so popular at the beginning of each year. It is usually followed by popular triggers:
Lose Weight!
Increase your Wealth!!
Achieve your Dreams!
Overcome Obstacles!
Find your Perfect Mate!
Get Healthy!
 
Articles and seminars used this one liner so much; I wondered if it would be possible for me to plan out the best year of my life at the beginning of the year? Contemplating past planning sessions, I remember a lot of time and money spent with nothing coming to fruition. Goals like being more eco friendly, being a better communicator, eating better, whatever it was, my long term planning seems to not work out.

Successful plans for me are usually practical in nature, meeting parents for a play day at the park, spending 2 hours in a specific day to pay bills and check my budget. Practical plans can go astray too. I was planning on going to the play center last Saturday at 2 PM, but my son fell asleep, so I changed my plans. It was “in my flow” for the day. I actually like being “in my flow”. It makes digesting life easier. I don’t take it personally if a friend is a “no show” for a play date. I know the plan for that day did not “fit in her flow”.

I know there is a force, a flow that moves me to accommodate my:


Failure – when I get to learn new lessons, grow spiritually, expand
Love – when I learn to love myself more, get to love new people
Creativity – when I get to experience new things beyond what I had imagined

When I surrender to that force I feel my own co-creation. It is minute by minute. It is not something I can “put my mind to”. Surrendering allows me to be what I need to be, with that comes natural improvement.

Instead of “Making It the Best Year Ever”, I think I will just make it the best minute with whatever is in my flow and surrender. Get my head out of the game and stop trying to plan out a strategy unless it is for a practical purpose. Embrace my true co-creator status, practice faith that Source moves through me and with me.

I think the saying is true, “God Laughs at Plans”.
 
Organically Yours,
