Spiritual Goals for 2012

This past year has been a tough one, but it is ending on a brighter note. I realized that I have not been much in touch with my spiritual side. I pretty much put it on hold. I've noticed the lack of spirit in my life overall. It wasn't a good place to be in and I hope I never again leave my spirit behind.

This coming 2012 I plan to be connected more frequently, if not everyday, to my spiritual side. I know it's always there, but sometimes I let other things get in the way of the awareness. In 2012 I will finally master meditation. It's something that I never really got the hang of but I need to really get it down. I'll try slowly and hope by the end of the year to be a full zen master (not really, but it's something to aspire to.) I also hope to seriously begin doing yoga. I've tried it several times but never stuck with it.

Life is too short for hangups and I am over hanging on to a few things that I thought I dealt with long ago. But 2011 has shown me that some things just keep coming back. It's time for a spiritual spring cleaning and I look forward to the many changes that lie ahead.

Hang In There

The economy has a lot of people full with fear and frustration. The country's financial uncertainty has many, including myself, wondering what the future holds. Sometimes this crazy climate pulls me down and makes me feel like giving up hope. But I hang in there.

Some friends are going through the same thing, and I know of an entire online community that shares their hopes and dreams and lean on each other for support during these turbulent times. We can all relate to our individual struggles and I know touching base and sharing our experiences help us hang in there.

The stock market has been flying up and down like a raging rollercoaster out of control. Sometimes my emotions feel the same way, but I find ways try to keep them in check. I hang in there.

Sometimes I do feel like giving up and throwing in the towel. Sometimes I do feel like becoming reclusive, hiding out like a hermit, but I continue to show up for life. I keep on trying, keep on holding on to hope, keep on wishing for the best, and keep on making moves.

I have to keep on hanging in there because the alternative is just not an option.

So no matter how tough it all gets, hang in there.

Life Goes On

I have not posted to this blog in over a year. I have been concentrating on my "real work" but it's time to get back to posting some spiritual thoughts. Life is just crazy right now and I am at a lost for some answers. But no matter how much I worry, or feel uncertain, or fear the unknown, life goes on. It doesn't stop for anyone or anything. There is no pause button. I have to adapt to the changes, the ups and downs, like everyone else. Maybe this is the new normal all around. The economy is in the tank, job prospects are limited, friends continue to come and go, and family passes on. It's all part of life, and it goes on. Times like this is when religious people pray and ask God, the universe, the powers that be, for answers. I do the same, but I also write. The process makes me feel better and think clearer. No matter what happens in my life, the good and the bad, I need to keep it all together and keep trekking on.
