2015 – The Year of Being UNREASONABLE
Before we go into being “unreasonable” , just a short journey back to Christmas to share this lovely little poem by Norman Wesley Brooks.
“Let Every Day Be Christmas”
|Christmas is forever, not for just one day, for loving, sharing, giving, are not to put away like bells and lights and tinsel, in some box upon a shelf. The good you do for others is good you do yourself. Peace on Earth, good will to men, kind thoughts and words of cheer, are things we should use often and not just once a year. Remember too the Christ-child, grew up to be a man; to hide him in a cradle, is not our dear Lord’s plan. So keep the Christmas spirit, share it with others far and near, from week to week and month to month, throughout the entire year!|
With the festive period comes many things- happy times with family and friends, giving, sharing, gifts, spiritual contemplation – amongst just the few things we associate with Christmas. As it passes though, it is important not to let all these dissipate as fast as the mince pies and wine! It is so easy in this fast-paced world today to be always “doing” and it often takes special occasions for us to slow down and reflect. But how about making each day special? And living each and every day with the values and thoughts we share at Christmas? So for this year, just two questions- What will you let go of? And what will you change or embrace to make this year even better than last?
So, back to being UNREASONABLE… I wanted to share a great little video by Robin Sharma- to help start off 2015 in a great way and sustain the passion and motivation. Just spare a few minutes if you will- and this will make you think differently. It’s not about resolutions at all but rather a shift in attitude. One message for this year- Be Unreasonable!
“The reasonable man adapts himself to the World. The unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the World to himself. Therefore, all progress depends on the unreasonable man”
George Bernard Shaw
Let this year be an unreasonable one! Here’s to 2015 and all its glory…
