Good years. Bad years. Boring years. Wild years.
None of us asked to be here, but we find ourselves on a planet with 7 billion people, cruising around the sun at 1,000mph. Some people say they have it figured out and they know why we’re here. Others don’t. But as we all collectively sit in this present moment, and watch another year disappear, let’s take some time today to ask the “why”. Why do you think we are here? Does that change the way you behave? Should it? Why don’t or haven’t you done that thing you have always wanted to do?
We aren’t guaranteed much in life, and 2020 has shown us that. One thing we are guaranteed is this present moment. The years go by quick and December 31 is a great time to reflect on that fact. These small and often mundane present moments add up, quickly, to weeks, months, years, decades, lives. We’re fortunate that we can fill our present moments with just about anything we want, with unlimited resources at our fingertips. Think about how much more challenging the same resolutions you’re setting for yourself would have been just 20 years ago. We can create any life we want with all of the books, websites, apps, and gadgets that are available. Once you figure out your “why”, decide where you want to go and what tools can help get you there. It might seem like a slow process at first, but at 1,000mph, we’ll find ourselves back here in the blink of an eye.
