As you begin the New Year, try and remember that life, your life, is fundamentally about movement.
There is no life, where there is no movement.
The more intentional or purposeful the movement, the richer and fuller the life
The more complex the movement, the greater the potential for growth
And life is ultimately about growth, the fulfilment of your inherent potential.
There is of course room for stillness, intentional stillness, only to make way for purposeful movement to follow,
But there is absolutely no room for stagnation.
Because stagnation is the beginning of the process of dying
And should your body stagnate, you'll actually feel it begin to deteriorate
Same with your mind and also your spirit, which is what drives you.
You’ll know this to be true when you experience that sense of restlessness
When you feel your body becoming restless
Or when your mind is restless you're go through life with a restless hear,
You should know, that the antidote to restlessness is itself movement. y
Try and stand still in room for an hour, you'll begin to feel that urge to move again.
It’s a natural yearning we all have, as natural as night and day.
And even if you manage to stand still for long enough, you'll soon begin to realise, that time still moves,
Because time doesn't stop for anyone and life simply just goes on without you.
So the only choice you really have then is, do you go with it, or do you let it all pass you by?
And if you’re not sure how, when or where to start, don’t worry, the point really is simply to start.
Go anywhere, do anything - it doesn't really matter.
The hardest part is always the transition from doing nothing, to doing something, the rest tends to figure itself out.
And if you're one of the few that finds themselves moving too much,
Then perhaps slow down a little, tune in, take all that energy and be more intentional in directing it towards only the things that really matter or away from the things that don't.
So make this the year of positive, purposeful movement and ride the wave of this life thing all the way into the shore,
The alternative is to find yourself drowning and we certainly don’t want that.
