2010 = Action
January 4, 2010 § Leave a comment
This year, this year of 2010, is going to be one of action.
Particularly, I believe this year will be a year of love in action. Actually, love to me is an action – it cannot be manifested, expressed and embraced unless it comes in the form of an action. Even the mere act of saying, “I love you” to another individual, is an action that you have taken. But I emphasize “love in action” to underscore the fact that love, just like anything else worth having in this world, cannot and will not come about simply by talking about it. It just will not.
Now, it may seem as if I am writing something that everyone already knows. It is true…of course things only happen when you take action. However, how many of us actually do it? How many of us actually stop talking to ourselves about taking action and actually do it? Not many of us at all. Why? Because we do not believe that we have the capacity to change.
However, now I have proof of our capacity to change. I have grown a lot since I began this blog almost three years ago and it has been amazing to just re-read my old posts and reflect upon how far I have come as a person. It makes my heart swell with joy and pride…to revisit old blog posts, old situations, old friends and to feel more expansive and understanding of myself. It is such a beautiful feeling to know that you have grown and continue to grow. Which only makes me more hopeful for the future — if I have the capacity to change, than for me that indicates that we all can and do in fact change/evolve. So, if we all change over time…then that means that people can and do in fact become more evolved versions of themselves. More authentic, grounded and loving versions of themselves — at least that is my hope. And I hope for it now more than ever since I now know that it is completely possible.
Now, I am not writing anything that is new under the sun or even anything that I have never expressed before — the difference now is that I am revisiting these thoughts and now I fully believe them…and I wanted to share that with you all. I have changed, I have evolved even when I thought I was not — so, if all of this change occurred when I was not really looking…then imagine what will happen now that I am consciously taking action to do so????? Hahahaha — yep, this is definitely going to be a year of action. A great year of action indeeed.
