The Only New Year’s Resolution You’ll Ever Need

The Only New Year's Resolution You'll Ever Need It’s that time again, and I am offering you the only New Year’s resolution you will ever need to make.
Live your life like you mean it.
Yep. That’s it. Resolve to live your life like you really mean it. Don’t wait to mean it when you fall in love. When you’re out of school. When you have money. When the kids are grown. When your hand is forced by age, or disease, or death. Don’t wait to live your life like you mean it when challenged with some outside circumstance that suddenly opens your eyes. (Like we usually do.) And certainly don’t live your life like you mean it because I told you to.
YOU are the meaning-maker in your life so live your life like you mean it – the way you mean to live it.
Make eye contact every morning with that you looking back in that mirror and mean it, even if just for a moment. Make eye contact with everyone you meet, every day, and mean it. Not as a series of foreheads and noses and lips and ears. Look life in the eye, and all the other folks that show up with you each day, like you mean it. And, when you do, pay attention. You just might be surprised at all that you can be and do and feel. Put this locomotive at the head of the train. Don’t lead with cabooses. (As cute as they look, save them for wishes.) If you put this resolution up front, all the other desires, intentions, determinations – and even wishes – will hook up and follow at their appropriate time. Think about it. This resolution directs you like the Golden Rule. When you love your brother as yourself, when you do unto your sister as you would do unto you, all the rest that’s right or wrong naturally comes into view. The who-what-why-when-where appears organically. And because you are living your life like you mean it, you won’t miss it. If you do, you will circle around and get back on track – or you will find someone that can help you. Living your life like you mean it – like it matters – supports the healthier diet, more fulfilling job, expanded education, improved relationship, shift from depression, or whatever fill-in-the-blank resolutions you might have. The ways and means to accomplish your goals will introduce themselves at the best possible time because you mean it. (Some might appear inconvenient at first but, because you are living your life like you mean it, you will recognize the wisdom in the timing.)
“Matter is Spirit moving slowly enough to be seen." – Pierre Teilhard de Chardin
If life matters, you matter. If life matters, how you spend your time giving meaning matters. You give life the meaning and the mattering. You give matter meaning. (Am I messing with your mind? Yes. Make it matter.) It’s  almost 2017. And you are reading this for a reason. Lets ring this one in together. Lets take a deep breath, right now, and slowly exhale like we mean it. Nap like we mean it. Play like we mean it. Hug like we mean it. Seek help like we mean it. Accept help like we mean it. Be amplified – or ambivalent – like we mean it. Divine Source and the universe love to support matter and the meaning in the matter. Spirit loves to conspire on your behalf. Check it in. “This is what meaning looks like to me when I do _______.” Then send out the signal loud and clear. Resolve to live your life like you mean it this year. May 2017 abundantly bless you with meaning so all that matters will come to you. Dream awake. Be amazed. With Love ... and I mean it.

      Thank you, Karla! You know, I can only take credit as a collaborator on this one. My Angels slapped me “upside the head” with the title and the resolution … and the rest flowed from there as a “duh, wish I’d thought of that.” HeeHeeHee 🙂 Always love to see you here. XO

      Oh my, Sally! I am so excited for you (and grateful to your son). It is so great to see you here and have another place where we can play. I would have cleaned up had I known you were coming … not. 😉 XO

    Dear Bernadette,

    Thank you for a lovely and eloquent direction for the new year! I can certainly embrace it but….What I read in the words “mean it” involve intention and a sort of acknowledgement of moving in a forward direction. This implies that I know what I want, right? What if I don’t know what I want? Does it then become about deliberate confusion? Does this make sense?

    Signed,

      Dear Confused in Chamblee,
      No forward direction required … only acknowledgement of the present moment, lived with meaning. Fully conscious. Now, if you find you would like to live deliberate confusion meaningfully then, by all means, go for it. The beauty in living life like we mean it is that it can be anything that we mean to live … even if it’s feeding cats. (Which, by the way, is very meaningful for them so I can live “vicarious” meaning …)

      We can BE or DO meaning. If we know what we want … great. If we don’t, that’s OK too as we can find meaning in little things around us. That way, when we don’t know what we want, we can NOT KNOW with meaning. OK. Just stop me now. 😉

      Signed,
      You KNOW I love you with meaning.

      Thanks for the visit, Juliette, and providing me with this opportunity to further clarify my post. XO
