The 2021 Challenge
We are back in the sun, in the bus, in the Mediterranean lifestyle. It is like all years: The year begins now, after celebrating the birthdays of our sons.
So, what’s up with this 2021 challenge, this new year we have on hand, this new vibration, all of the unwritten pages?
We do “themes of the year” in our family, not new year resolutions. This year the headline is Moving On!
“Moving on” has everything to do with the COVID-choked 2020. We have decided to let nothing stop us, not even this. There has been a crisis of some sort all of our life: First, it was the oil crisis and the war in Vietnam, later it was AIDS and the A-bomb, then it was the Millenium and Terror, and now it is the Pandemic. It stops when it stops inside our minds, it stops when we decide to live our life, deliberately and with love. It stops when we take responsibility and hold our life in our own hands.
There will be no more waiting, no more procrastinating, no more whining, no more hesitation. Not even when we are insecure, when we lean into stuff we don’t know. We need to walk into the unknown, we need to work with the painful corners of our past as well as the present, we need to go live “head-on” this year.
We will solve problems, invest resources, travel to new locations, make new friends, listen to music, renew what is worn and torn, open what is closed, learn what life has to teach us.
This new “head-on” energy makes us bump into inner walls and into each other, and lets out all of the skeletons from our past; we both have nightmares and moments of deep despair and frustration and even fear, but we always re-emerge at the surface when we trust in God, life, the process and turn our attention to the basics of gratitude: All of our “obstacles” are good ones, and they all come from our freedom fight: With freedom comes responsibility, and it is not always easy to handle all of the analysis, work, energy that comes along.
We DO want to handle it. We WILL handle it. In the end, we always end our day with grateful hearts.
