“Preparation”, said Napolean.

It’s January 1st 2009, and I’m excited about the changes I’m about to make.

Specifically changes that will benefit me in productivity, spirituality, relationship chemistry, my overall health, and some really simple shit.  Nonetheless, I fail.  In fact I’ve failed every single year.  My goals heavily doubt my ambition to meet them.  I don’t even meet them half way.

“Hey goals!  Let’s grab some lunch, talk about our progress over some coffee . . . and you know . . . no?”

So i say to myself, “how the fuck am I so happy some times…”  and my goals reply back, “How much fuckin happier would you be if we did sit down and grab that coffee?”

So I went home to discuss this with my dog Napolean, a very mischievous and charismatic dachshund by the way.  And he told me: preparation.

And this is exactly what I lacked every single year, and exactly why “goals” would not even bother to have a staring contest with me.

What I feel like I do wrong every year before I make any resolutions is that I don’t prepare myself for these changes.  And preparation, according to Napolean, is key.  You say you’re going to quit smoking in 2010, you’re going to…um…let’s see…       let’s say spend more time with your family…or the inevitable, I’m going to get back into shape.  You might as well start now so that the transition into these changes are fucking simple.

Let’s make our resolutions (not that we need them to become better people) opposite of fairy tales and become the super heroes we know we are destined to become.

May 2009 be my preparation for a 2010 rollercoaster of “happy”.

  • "Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others." ~Marianne Williamson
