Is 2010 off to a good start for you? January is the month when many people think about making improvements, changes, and refinements. All of this is in an effort to create something significant, something momentous. Each New Year, each new day presents an opportunity for distilling an earthshaking potion for a better life. What ingredients will you add to your potion this year or today?
Happiness might be a good place to start. You have the right to pursue happiness despite what ails you. Recently, one patient told me about her mission and a website called the Happiness Project. If anyone needs some advice about how to find a bit of paradise in the world, this website is a great place to spark your quest. We should all be In Pursuit of Happiness.
Another ingredient in your world-shattering potion should also be relaxation. Do you start your day in a calm or anxious state of mind? Have you started your year in a calm state of mind? Energy levels not only effect how you feel, but also effect every being around you: children, pets, parents, co-workers, and friends. With four dogs, I can attest that starting the day with calm state of mind helps my pack. We begin each morning with a meditative walk. With each turn around the property in the right, relaxed state of mind, I am one fundamental step closer to having a momentous day. What is your next step into the first turn of 2010?
Ultimately, your day and your year is what you make of it. You will go in the direction that you are looking towards; be it mundane or momentous.
