From Overwhelm to Simple Possibility

Has the overwhelm set in?  Just start somewhere.

In a way, that’s what I’m doing here.  With these words and this task.  The ideas have come and gone.  So has the energy they bring with them.  Can you relate?

Maybe you’ve had it in your head to do all these things with the shiny new year, and now that it’s here… your energy’s spent.  Sometimes all I can see is a bunch of unused intentions.  Wasted.  Then they’re gone with the wind or buried in paper.  I meant well.  But time gets away.  It all disappears in a blink.  And that’s just in time, to start over and do it all again.  Or maybe not do it, all over again.  Do you ever feel like I do?

Maybe you’re a little bit like me, and all you really want is time to recover from the last month.  Or two.  Or even three.  It’s exhausting to think of doing even one more thing, much less the grand vision I meant to be busy about.  Still, I know if I don’t do something, I’ll stay right where I am.  And that’s stuck.  If there’s any one place I know I DON’T want to be- after all that God’s done to move me forward- it’s there.  Moving is the path to not being stuck.

So I’m starting with this.  With these choppy, broken words.  I offer them up to remind you, you’re not as alone as you think.  We’re in this together.  Breaks are allowed.  Take as long as you need.  But don’t stay there.  Get your bearings.  Catch your breath.  Grab some coffee, or better yet a nap.  Take a walk.  Whatever it takes.  Fill up your tank.  Then hit the road, running.

We’ll be here when you’re ready.  We’ll be cheering you on.  Toward that shiny new year that’s stuck in your head.  One sloppy step at a time.

Whatever it takes.

I’m right there with you.  You may not think so, but I need you doing your thing as much as you need me doing mine.  We draw energy from what others share with the world.  That means you.   Really, I mean it.  We are in this, together.  The possibilities are endless.  And we know better than to go it alone.

Now tell me I’m right.  Because you know that I am.  There’s so much for you out there, and I want you to grab hold of it, friend.  It starts here.  It starts right here, this minute.  With just one visible step toward something that’s calling.  With one doable thing that you can and will do.  Do it now.  However you need to.  Whatever that looks like.

Then keep doing that.

Until finally, you’re just doing the thing.  That’s how the thing becomes your thing.  Your new thing.

Tell me, friend.  What do you imagine when you look into the window of your fresh new year?  What possibilities lie waiting for you to take note of them, and give them fresh life?  I’ll tell you what I see when I look into mine.

I see you.  Doing your thing.  Together with me.

This is me showing up for the vision.  Will you join me?  I can’t wait to see what unfolds into OUR exciting New Year!  As we adventure together.  Here’s to us!  Sharing the joy and everything else.
