Quick! Right Now Before the New Year...
Turn on the Rocky theme song, pump up the hip-shaking Latin music, and crank it loud.
This is it.
Grab your coffee beans off the shelf, a filter, and grind up a strong pot. This is it, this is your day.
Who needs to wait until January 1st to start seizing each day fully? Each day is fresh, full, pregnant with potential, and this is it.
Twelve hours of daylight await you, and time is slipping away.
Take a quick shower, grab those jeans you love, and pour a smooth cup of hot coffee.
Forget about whatever failures you feel loom high from the year, the To-Do list with so many familiar items trailing along to each new page.
Today is fresh, new; the snow is untouched, and waiting for you. Grab today, pump the music high, and dig in.
What's one thing you want to tackle today while it is still 2013? What's one thing you want to jump full into today?
This is it. Bring your coffee, turn the music loud, and dive in.
(I'd love to cheer you on, friend. What are you jumping in today with me? I have some writing and speaking projects I'm working on. Those in email can join the conversation here.)
