New years are not unlike us. They come into being with a lot of baggage from the years that preceded them. It would be easy to assume 2022 will just be more of the same – more anger, more injustice, more frustration and fear.
There are a lot of people on this planet committed to the narrative that things are bad and only getting worse. They have convinced themselves change is heresy against their spiritual beliefs, their political convictions, and their way of being in this world.
Remember change in this universe is constant and natural. All the digging in our heels we can muster won’t change that. The game is not to prevent change. Rather, it’s to push change directions that feed humanity’s highest aspirations and benefit more people on this planet each and every year.
2020 and 2021 have been years of hardship and heartache for many. It would be easy to assume 2022 will simply bring more of the same. Of course that very assumption sets in motion a self-fulfilling prophecy.
What if, instead of assuming 2022 will continue 10,000 years negative energy and will perpetuate the angst of the past two years, we give it a chance. I don’t mean a chance just until it provides its first example that dystopia is at the gates. I mean a real chance, a real try.
What if we assumed this is going to be the best year we’ve had in a long time and we worked, every one of us every day, to make it so?
What then, indeed!
Wherever you are on your journey today, know that you are awesome!
