Many of us were holding our breaths all year, waiting for that magical date of December 21st to roll around. Some were expecting the apocalypse. Some were expecting ET to take us away. Some were expecting a major earthquake, tsunami, avalanche, flood or other natural disaster. Me, I was on a rooftop overlooking the pyramids on the Giza plateau eating Egyptian food and chatting with friends. I figured if the world was going to end, I might as well do it in style.
But it didn't end, and we all got up the next day and continued on with our lives. But now what do we do? Well, we usually sit and wait for something to happen TO us instead of creating something to happen FOR us. I am guilty of it. We wait...and wait...and wait. Then we whine about how nothing good ever happens to us and why don't we ever get to ___________. That is sooooo 2012. 2013 is about harnessing the energies that entered into our lives in December (Oh yes they did. In a HUGE way!), and using them to propel us forward in our missions. Yes, you have a mission. It might seem as though your mission is nonexistent, but never fear. It's there, waiting for you to catch up or catch on. Once you do, you are in for the ride of your life.
If all this seems a bit daunting, then take some baby steps. Make a list of things your heart wants to get done this year. Not your wallet or your ego. Your heart. Your heart knows where you are supposed to be, and it can help you to create something FOR you instead of waiting for something to happen TO you. After you have made your list, commit to doing one thing that brings you closer to something on your list. Maybe it's reading a new book or taking a class. It could be researching a new job or spending time with friends. Whatever small step you take will bring you into the energy of creation instead of the stagnation of waiting. So let's not waste any more time waiting for life to come to us. Or waiting for the world to end. Because it's not. It's just beginning.
