What is certain to happen in 2016? Well, let’s see.
Next year, some things will certainly go well., some things will certainly not go well. I’ll certainly feel happy, sad, loved, hated, stressed, relaxed, smart, dumb, confident, afraid, healthy, sick, confused and assured. I am certainly going to have amazing new experiences, will build lasting new relationships, will reach new heights. I’ll also certainly experience huge setbacks and failures, will damage some relationships, will reach new lows. I’ll certainly earn enough applaud and criticism to balance each other out. I’ll learn something new, and forget something useful. I’ll have some perfect shinning days, some super bad days, and a lot many average busy days. Overall, 2016 will be just like any other year. Only the moments will be unique, and will be my greatest take away from 2016. I’ll come out more experienced in 2016 than how I entered it, adding more depth to my understanding of the universe. I hope that makes me a better person.
How can I cope with all that ping-pong in life for 12 long months?
- When situation heats up – gotta reduce the intensity, will take disconnected perspective, and at least will pretend to act mature
- When too much goes on – will deal with the mess, one day at a time, one hour at a time, one task at a time (and will keep a bucket list)
- When not sure what should I do – will err to the side of growth mindset, restraint, kindness, and forgiveness (and will see what happens)
- When had a bad day, and feeling low – will forget the world, eat a chocolate (or any tasty food, I don’t care), and listen to music (and hide)
Ok, bring it on.
