'Tis the season for making New Year's Resolutions. I usually make them. I even keep one or two a year for 4-6 months. I have always been very goal oriented and so far in life, it has worked pretty well for me.
This year I struggled to make resolutions. I honestly couldn't come up with anything. I should make the normal ones of loose weight, eat better, take care of everything, be perfect... I am just not in that frame of mind this year. So, I decided to just be. I have no goals, nothing that I HAVE to do. I have no where to go and no one to disappoint. There is a freedom in being goal-less. Suddenly there is no reason to be disappointed in myself. I understand now how people can just BE. I understand that there is a lot of freedom in just BE-ing. I am okay in my current existence. I may even be on my way to actually living, 'BE HERE NOW!' not just talking about it.

  1. I was goal-less for the first five days of the new year. Then, I had a mind shift, and I decided I wanted some goals. I made ten this year, for 2010, and I plan on keeping two, maybe two and a half. I guess I don't get too disappointed when I don't fulfill my goals. It's a habit to make them, and I usually do it to honor my father. He was a big fan of New Year Resolutions.
    I'm happy to hear that you are content just 'Be'ing. You need contentment. Keep it up.
