Let’s do a little check in!! How is your sparkling new year going?! How are those goals, those resolutions, and healthy habits?
Not so great? Well don’t you worry. I was just rereading a chapter from one of my fav Marianne Williamson books and I was reminded of these four simple rules to make miracles happen. I’m all about makin miracles and magic happen, so I decided to adopt these rules as my theme for the year. Check them out!
1. Be Positive.
Positive people are just the BEST! Let’s live on the sunny side of the street, spread joy, and lift people’s spirits. Not only is it just way more fun than the alternative, but did you ever notice how positive people tend to get promoted, get offered new jobs, and get new opportunities? Positivity is contagious. Everybody wants a piece of it and everybody wants to be around it. Be the bright beam that everybody gravitates towards this year!
2. Send Love.
Love is seriously the best thing you can give another person. Romance or not (and lord knows I looooove romance), sharing love---even if it’s just a mental hug--can shift some big stuff. I remember way back in the day when I was teaching, I would think of my “tricky” students and blast them with love before I would arrive at school. Not only did it change my attitude towards them, but it changed our whole teacher/student relationship! The “tricky” people in our life just need a little more love. So give it to them!
3. Have funnnn!!!
Yes! Yes! Let’s ALL agree to have waaaay more fun this year!! Life is so short and I don’t want to waste another second not having the time of my life. Dance in the streets! Sing with that steel drum player guy in the Subway at Times Square! Stay up too late chatting with your girlfriends over wine [or dude friends...Uhh...grunt at football games over beer?] Enjoy this crazy ride we’re on. We’re not getting any younger;)
4. Kick Ass.
Whatever you do, kick ASS doing it. Whatever job you’re in, be freakin amazing at it. I don’t care if you’re a janitor, be the BEST janitor this side of the universe has ever SEEN! No being flakey. No being lame about meaningless tasks. Put all your energy into making the work you do AMAZING and more of the work that you care about will come your way. It’s science;)
So those are my commitments to this sparkling year! Sheer positivity, endless love, insane amounts of fun, and lots of kick ass-ing. Whatya say? Are you in? Leave me a comment and share your commitments for the year!
To the best year EVER! xo
