Today is the first day of the year 2022. With the celebrations now in the past, it’s time to look to the future and appreciate the present. The past year and it’s challenges and successes is now in the rear view mirror. We can’t change what happened but we can appreciate the success we have enjoyed and learn from the challenges of the past.
In the moment, nothing changes, nothing becomes new. Look back on the past twelve months and see where you moved closer to your goals. See how a tiny step in January put you in a position to see a synchronicity in June that moved the needle on your progress and in December maybe it paid off.
It happened with me in the last year and brought me closer to my goal of replacing my new become. I’ve still got a long way to go, but it’s important to recognize that progress has been made, one tiny step at a time. Opportunities and synchronicities are all around and with experience we can learn to recognize them. It doesn’t help when we focus on what we feel is a lack of progress. All movement brings progress. Sure there are setbacks, that doesn’t mean a lack of progress, it’s part of the process. Remember that progress isn’t linear, it ebbs and flows.
This isn’t to say that we must have aspirations to do great things. Maybe you want to do small things in a great way. That’s for you to decide. Maybe you want to be happier this year. One day more with a feeling of happiness means progress. Remember, there is no time limit on getting to your destination. Keep your goal in the back of your mind while you enjoy the journey.
2022 is going to be a year of both great success and challenges, just as 2021 and every year before has been. According to some reports, our work led is in great turmoil and civilization is on the brink of destruction. Not to downplay any challenges that we, as a world, face but there has to be something good that happened in the past year. You will always find what you are looking for.
I’m committed to starting 2022 looking for opportunities to be happy. I will look for the good in people and situations. I will find the light at the end of the tunnel. I will see opportunities everywhere I go and in the very situation. I will turn my creative mind on and follow my inspiration wherever it may lead.
Maybe if more people would look for the good in their lives and in other people, including and especially those who disagree with them, they will realize how truly blessed they are and this will lead to more “good finding”.
May you be blessed with good fortune and prosperity in 2022 and beyond
