ON COURSE, OF COURSE

Happy New Years!
Yeah, yeah, I know…
A few days late.
So
I’ve been reading other’s blogs…
About their goals and motivations…
For the upcoming year.
Or about their not being able…
To get back in gear after the holidays.
Well, after my visit to NYC last week…
And enduring the worst snow storm in 60 years…
I’ve decided not to have…
A new rah rah resolution list this year…
And I’m not even going to have a new goal list…
(Has it ever changed? Published, right?)
But I have decided instead
That for 2011…
I’m chanting a new mantra…
That’s right…
A NYC mantra…
And it is: Nothing is going to stop me!
That’s right…
Just like the NYC taxis…
The NYC subway cars…
And all the NYC people schlepping…
Through 2 feet of snow
Nothing is going to stop me!
Not rejection…
Not insecurity…
Not off-handed comments from others…
Not even life…
(well, I do have to stay alive)
Because even though tough stuff happens…
That sucks the wind out of my sails…
Nothing is going to stop me!
I’ve charted my course…
And of course, along the way
I still might have to hurl a few *&@*%!
But, I can clearly see
(at least in my mind’s eye)
My destination.
So?
What could stop you in your destination?

Always, Em-Musing

I've been in NYC during a snow/hail storm and you're right. Nothing stops that city! I love your goal. May I borrow it as my mantra too? :)

Happy New Year!

I'm glad you're back safe and sound.

Nothing will stop you!!

It's so important to see what we're destined for, isn't it? I can see my destination too, in my mind's eye. Hopefully I'll be able to stay out of my own way long enough so I can get there.

Nothing is getting in my way this year! I'm with you all the way! :o)
