Your life is passing by, engage.

Time is slipping through your fingers, hold tight and engage

Listen to your teachers, your friends, the human being tallying your groceries, engage

It is almost January 1st, 2015, engage

That last line makes me panic a little. I can’t believe January 2015 is so close and I as this year comes to an end, I focus on my goals and what I am working towards. The idea of engaging in my commitments hit me today as I went through the motions at a workout class. I thought about how easy it would be for me to simply do the movements and still get some results. But the absolute best results are achieved when I engage my mind and my body in the hour-long class.

Do you do this as well? Are you moving through the motions and seeing some results but they aren’t the fullest expression of you? If this is resonating with you, know that my heart feels sick for you and me. We have to stop doing this whole disengaging thing. Your friendships, workplace, and community deserve your engagement and commitment. YOU deserve to not sell yourself short and disengage from your life.

Sometimes I slip and lose my focus on what really matters, short-term niceties cloud my vision temporarily… and that is okay. The point I am trying to make is that this life I am living, one filled with arduous and passionate goals is not easy. I fall/fail/suck at life all the time, but I am committed to keeping my sense of urgency and playing this game of life with real money. I am pleading and praying that you understand how short your time here on earth is. November 2014 is already here and this great, hard, memory-saturated year will be over before you know it.

2015 is upon us. What are you going to do with it?
