Unspoiled Territory 2013

Tuesday, January 01, 2013

30 minutes until New Years, a person I was sitting with began to stare off into the distance. I watched them (to make sure there was not a spider crawling up the wall mind you), and they stared off into the unknown, quite sad looking. This person then looked at me and said:
"Oh great, here we go into another year."

Hold it, hold it, hold it my friends. Back up that train of thought, rewind that mouth, and let's try this again. Let's say: "Oh Great! Here comes a year of success!" Repeat it. Come on...work with me here. SAY IT: "Oh Great! Here comes a year of success!" The attitude of doom, gloom, and depression is unexcusable. Stop looking at the New year as if it's already a failure. Don't look at it and expect the worst, the dreary, or the terrible. Look at is as unspoiled territory of peace, prosperity, and success! Take joy in this New Year, not sorrow. What's with the dreary mood of everyone around me?

Let me share with you what I wrote down in my journal:
"Well, it's a New Year, with new opportunity! Here is a fresh, new land stretching before us. No sound, no breath, no footsteps...completely untouched by human existance. This year is fresh, clean, unspoiled...and totally there for those who want to grasp it and take hold of it. Here is a future of peace, movtivation, success, prosperity, opportunity, and joy lying ahead of us...and I for one am going to take advantage of it. I'm not going to sit around wishing things were different, or complaining about what I can't change. I'm keeping my eye on it, my focus on what matters, & my positive attitude flowing. When times get hard, I'll press harder. When life throws a challenge my way, I'll leap, sail, or crawl over it...but I'll still get over it. I welcome this new year of unspoiled success, because it's mine for the taking, the molding, the living...I hope others feel the same."

Thank you self, that was very well put. Welcome 2013, suprise us all.

'Cause I can feel the wind at my back
Chest is pumpin like a heart attack
Feet are moving and my mind is locked
Pressing on with everything I got
I got my eye on it...& I will not quit

    I needed to read this! I just posted my blog about 2013 and it kinda had a sad overtone that I felt as I read it back. I need to let go of my past failures and move forward with a fresh start. Happy New Year, Karen!
