Last night I went to that new movie 2012 and it got me thinking about how I’d spend my last moments were the world to end. I’d like to think I live every moment to my last but I know it’s not true. I do however know that it’s a habit I wish to invoke and a powerful way to live life when kept in context.
So that also got me thinking about variety. I enjoy having variety in my life and I do get bored easily. I need to keep things fresh in order to maintain my enthusiasm for whatever it is I’m doing. Even on a day to day basis, unless I throw in some variety and change the way I focus, not only on my goals but on my moment to moment being, I tend to lose a bit of that zeal that keeps me going.
We’ve all seen the, new age, buzz words doing the rounds over the last few years but I think it’s time for a refresher! Remember that you can focus on any of these at any particular time and, if you’re having a bad day, where you’re feeling a bit unfocused, use this list to remind you of all the plucky new age, hip and happenin’, acronyms!
