Monday Morning Coffee – Finding FLOW after the Holidays


I hope you’ve had a fabulous celebration and have 2011 out of your current reality and are bursting into 2012 with enthusiasm and gusto.

Today, many people are still on Holiday, although my suspicion is that most folks are ready to find some “normalcy” and routine after a month of revelry and debauchery.

As we ring in a new year, we often speak in terms of “New Year Resolutions” . . . What will we do differently in this 2012 year to make it Oh-so-much-better than 2011?

New Diets . . .

New/More Exercise routines . . .

Commitment to a PLAN . . .

Fresh performance GOALS . . .

More time with family and friends . . .

More “OFF” time for vacations . . .

The gyms will be FULL of New Year Resolution fulfillers . . . for a few weeks . . . and then attendance will wane.

We seek the ever elusive “Life Balance” which turns out to be an illusion because of “Outside spanners.”

There’s always some external force pulling or pushing us out of balance . . . Holidays, Job cycles, Illness, Birth, Death, Divorce, Birthdays, Economic and political uncertainty, moving to a new house . . . It’s always there in the background threatening our Balance.

Let yourself off the hook and cease your quest for “Balance” by accepting the simple notion that (most of time) you’ll be a tad (or a LOT) off balance . . . and that the best you can do is to maintain a personal FLOW that is taking you towards your vision of where you want to be. 

So . . .

LIVE to your fullest capacity in every moment!

WORK your art and be the force of change you are in this world during your short time here.

PLAY your way along.

Let 2012 be the year you practice this dance of Live, Work, and Play to the extent that you are effortlessly your FULL self in every moment.

the rest is just icing on the cake.

Just sayin’



PS: Often finding your life FLOW leads to adjusting where you live . . . Moving to a larger or smaller house, relocating to a different area . . . If that’s even a remote possibility in your future, NOW is a wonderful time to start the process, and I and the associates of Pareto Realty stand poised and ready to help you with a smooth transition to new digs 🙂
