The New Year of 2009

I have been thinking about what my goals are for the new year. I have lots of business and financial goals. But the first thing on my list is to be "in the present moment". That means listening to what people are saying, being quiet so they can express themselves to me. It is interesting how our minds work. Usually when someone talks you immediately try to see if you have had same experience and then relate it right back to that person. That person may not even care or be too entrenched in their explanation about their experience before shifting over to hear about yours. So, instead of relating right back my own story, I'm going to be quiet and really listen to what others are saying. By being in the present moment I can be aware of my own thoughts and control a potential sudden outburst. I can then really be there for that other person and be 'in the spirit'. That is a positive way to start out the new year.

Tell us how you are starting out your New Year!
