Ahhh…the month of champions. Going back to just a year ago….this was the month before a soon-to-be vacation in Bali, Indonesia. Here in Thailand, this is the month when the climate begins to cool down. This is when everything that has happened all year long begins to come into fruition. The excitement, for whatever reason, is reverberating and I can’t even contain myself. I’m like a 5 year old child on Christmas morning, although Christmas is months away and rarely do I celebrate it.
Perhaps it could be because I’m heading back to Phoenix, Arizona for the second time this year. It could also be because I’ll be going on a snowboarding trip just after Christmas; staying in a log cabin while eating s’mores. Yes, the end-of-the-year trip is looming, but that’s probably only 10% of my excitement.
Just being able to have another opportunity, and opportunities flow in one after another is just astounding. Having my voice heard and my words read all around the world with my podcast and blog; becoming noticed by big time people while doing podcasts with influencers all over the world. This is just so EXCITING for me!
At the dawn of this year, American websites and Americans in general were saying, “oh, my New Years Resolutions are…..” It seems that THAT, is an after thought. I shocked myself this year; in more ways than one, and the most amazing part about it is I’ve exceed not only the New Years Resolutions, but jumped probably 2 years ahead of my time.
What 2018 has in store is quite frankly resounding. Tedx, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Egypt, investments, retirement plans, ridiculous monthly salary, new career path, and so many other things. I’ve created all of this excitement first in my head so I can hold it in my hand.
Those of you who are probably reading this should know something. That something is….what do you really want in life? Do you think that life is suppose to be and mean getting a career, make a lot of money (or lack thereof) in a slave job, get married, grow old then leave the body temple? Is that what life is? Maybe for some people….but I love to side with the Dylan Thomas quote, “rage, rage against the dying of the light.” I’m making noise and as Lisa Nichols says, “be unapologetic about who you are!” These quotes proliferate within me and today I woke up feeling the best I’ve ever had in my entire life. What was the feeling? I have no idea, but based on my podcast this morning….I feel that what’s about to happen in my life is going to change the trajectory of everything.
Here’s to a wonderful September! Here’s a toast to a remarkable year up until September….and now it’s time to make more noise for the last third!
