Happy New Year

As I look forward to 2017, I am extremely excited by the positive energy I feel from people I know and don’t know around the world.

This year we need to wake up and understand how simple it is to make everyone’s reality so much happier and healthier.

Trends that I hope people continue to explore:

  • Daily mediation
  • Yoga
  • More singing and dancing 
  • Eating more vegetables 
  • Embracing both masculine and feminine energy in each of us
  • Tribal rituals and plant based medicines 

Trends that desperately need eradication

  • Racism
  • Hate of a fellow human being
  • Killing of a fellow human being
  • Starvation of children anywhere 
  • Cyber crime
  • Animal cruelty in all forms

Anyone reading this post should be ecstatic  that YOU are living in the golden age of humanity.   Within the next 50 years all humans that lived in a non-technology dominated world will be gone.   We are the last…how amazing and special!

But we must now be very thoughtful on how technology impacts and permeates our lives.   My wife, Angie and I struggle continuously with Elvis and Scout.  How much iPad, xBox, TV or computer time?   How much dress up and use your own imagination?  We constantly strive to make them happy and aware.   And we are constantly playing dress up šŸ˜‰

2016 was an interesting and eye opening year for me personally. I worked hard. I focused more on my family. I practiced more yoga and mediation.  But I also made a few bad decisions – professionally and personally.   I had a few injuries, avoided dying and was reminded of my mortality more frequently than I should have.  It reinforced the need to be more present.  If I had been more mindful, I would have likely eliminated almost all the negativity.  But perhaps in 2016, I needed all this different energy to become more aware.  

Now in 2017, I can do better.   We can all do better.

Imagine how much better the world would be if we were all more aware.

Much love

Happy New Year

    Great list!
    I feel that there are two additional practices that we need to do more of:
    * Empathy – develop the skills to be able put yourself in others shoes (for good or bad)
    * Critical thinking – be able to discern deception from fact and develop the curiosity to vett everything you read.
