Purpose has to do with presence. The understanding of the importance of my life on this place and in this moment builds the capacity for growth. In the beginning of a new year there should truly only be one resolution to carry forward. That is a conscious effort to be alert and aware of the “I” in every situation that presents itself and a mindfulness of the moment.
The most restraining attitude one can fall into is to either live with a sense of lost of the past, or an over emphasis on the time available in the future. The first keeps one from starting and the second from completing your goals. It also prevents one from learning and growing by missing the moment.
Living with an awareness of the moment helps one to identify opportunities, and to act on those. Mindfulness of “me” in every situation helps me to gain understanding of purpose and opportunity. Focus to adopt this resolution and this year will be a great one.
