So as the years lately have passed, I've found as the end of the year nears, I get whispers from the Universe. Tidbits about the coming year and general moods and swings.
I've been told, looking back, that some of my "predictions" have been scary accurate. and I've seen evidence even in my own life of the validity of these things.
You can find them on my calendar on LiveJournal starting 2010 and heading back right about or near Dec 31st/Jan 1st. http://glitch25.livejournal.com
This year, the whisper has been more an affirmation of the prior year, and a reminder for the coming.
The message is very simple. Don't let the world pass you by. We have control over our destinies. We have the ability to architect our futures. Hoping for the best isn't good enough. You must decide that your life WILL be the best.
Fear is not a good enough reason. Boredom and disinterest aren't either. Get off your butt, put on a brave face, and take that first step.
Find a new job. Ask that person out on a date. Chat up that person you see every morning on the bus or at the coffee shop. Go see that show you keep putting off. Take that trip you want to take. Break with that thing that is causing you grief. Chase those things that might bring you love and happiness.
Make a promise to view every day as a new opportunity to pave your path. Take a step. Move forward. Know that if you decide your fate, the path will always yield good things.
And don't fear failure. If you've decided to take those steps, even if you stumble, you aren't failing. You only fail when you don't move.
Make life what you want it to be. Take every advantage. And help others do the same.
