I'm not one for New Year's Resolutions - however I love setting intentions and goals no matter what time of year it may be.

Last night I asked Adam: "Even though we don't set New Year's Resolutions, are there any goals you'd like to pursue in 2008?"

Adam replied: "I just want to have more fun"

That's EXACTLY what I was thinking. I want 2008 to be the year I have the most fun of my entire life! I want 2008 to go down in the record books for how much fun we have together!

(To take from You Can Heal Your Life) My mantra is:

My life gets better and better.

In my opinion, that mantra covers all my bases.

Adam and I have also been discussing a quote we received in our e-mail boxes a while back (I apologize for not giving you the exact wording, as I deleted it), that goes something like:

You are so busy trying to create a happy life that you miss the happy moments.

We've been having a multiple day dialog around this 1 concept. The only way you can create a Happy Life is to acknowledge & appreciate your Happy Moments. If that concept doesn't suck you back into the present moment - then I don't know what will.

Peace & Blessings & Many Happy Moments!

PS - I know I've posted this before - I think it's fitting for New Year's:

Lion Chaser's Manifesto

Quit living as if the purpose of life is to arrive safely at death. Set God-sized goals. Pursue God-ordained passions. Go after a dream that is destined to fail without divine intervention. Keep asking questions. Keep making mistakes. Keep seeking God. Stop pointing out problems and become part of the solution. Stop repeating the past and start creating the future. Stop playing it safe and start taking risks. Expand your horizons. Accumulate experiences. Enjoy the journey. Find every excuse you can to celebrate everything you can. Live like today is the first day and last day of your life. Don't let what's wrong with you keep you from worshiping what's right with God. Burn sinful bridges. Blaze new trails. Criticize by creating. Worry less about what people think and more about what God thinks. Don't try to be who you're not. Be yourself. Laugh at yourself. Quit holding out. Quit holding back. Quit running away.

Chase the lion.
