Awaken – to be roused from sleep.

New Adventures

This is my theme for 2016. Somewhere along my path I feel as if I have nodded off, hit the cruise control and kind of activated automatic pilot for my life. I go through times where I wake up, grab the proverbial steering wheel of life, change direction and then get into my comfort zone and cruise along. I tend to go with the flow, sometimes I just follow the crowd and time slips by relatively unnoticed, little change takes place and everything is fairly comfortable and predictable. The uncomfortable comfort zone of my life.

I have decided that it is time to wake up and be more conscious of who I am and understand the reasons why I do the things I do. I want to find out where my childhood dreams were forgotten and why? What is my over-riding driving passion that makes me want to get up at 4am and get moving? Why did I stop playing piano or doing art? Why have I not been reading novels and only read motivational or self-help books? Do any of these things that I have stopped doing need to be taken up again? Do I need to look for a new hobby or sport? Am I happy to spend the next 30 years building the same business? Do I value the security of my career over the possibility of worldwide adventures? Have I lost touch with God or have I moved closer to God over the past few years? Is my understanding of God true for who I am or who I want to be? Do I see myself as a part of the universe or as a soul having an experience that is unconnected to the soul of the world?

Am I frozen in fear of the unknown that I am now unable to move forward or am I growing in leaps and bounds but not recognizing my growth or giving myself enough credit for it.

I am looking forward to this year. It will be a year of awakening. For me it is going to be a year of deep personal growth. A year of great things, forward momentum, achieving dreams and living a full and conscious life. A life where I can be present to those around me and give others my full and undivided attention. 2016 is the year that I awaken to all the possibilities that are within me and I am going to make the most of them and leave the world a better place for it.
