Let's get on target!
This is the time of year in which we tend to review the past 11 months; our hopes, dreams and goals. What did you want for yourself this year--was it a spiritual or physical goal (like learning meditation or regularly doing more exercise)? Perhaps you have felt the stirrings in your soul to go after a different job for yourself? Did you achieve these goals fully; are you somewhere on the path (pausing to catch your breath or daydream under a tree)? Maybe the stirrings in your soul are just now finding their voice. Wherever you are, remember that's it's OK. That Life is perfectly imperfect!
When I think about achieving goals, I think about archery. Many people don't know that it's important to have good form down before you learn how to aim at the target. This also seems similar to certain Life goals, in that before you put your attention on achieving the goal/hitting the bull's eye, it's best if you focus on your form/the foundation of things. To not be in Such A Rush.
Whatever it is, know that you can achieve it. Really. We all have that bodaciousness inside that is ever cheering us onward and upward! We all have that strength and beauty; it's just a matter of getting out of our own way (and forgiving ourselves for having to do this)! Let's focus our intention and go for the goal of the ever-present and absolutely realistic possibility of being our own personal hero. You ready?
