Annual New Year’s Eve message. This got started in 2008. My, how time flies! 2014 edition is at the end.
Happy New Year, fellow Freaks!
January 1, 2008, 12:10 a.m.
I’m doing my own version of partying.
I’m not at a wild New Year’s party. Not in a bar. Not having a $100.00 a plate meal at a restaurant. Not at Times Square.
I’m at home, in my living room, laptop in hand. I’m doing what I love.
I’m in “The Zone.”
Hey, I know how to have fun! We just got back from a week at Disney World.
So what did you do this New Year’s Eve? Are you reading this about the time I’m sending it?
Whatever it was, did it contribute to your wealth? Your sense of well being? Did you party out of a sense of duty or obligation?
Are you excited about the direction your life is moving?
Is the love here? Or is it on the way?
How about the money?
How about the peace of mind?
How about the health?
Keep reading. I’ve got some thoughts you’re going to want to know about.
We don’t all do things the same way, do we? We don’t think the same way. We don’t feel the same way. We don’t perceive things the same way.
We all have things we value and things we don’t need to hold onto. Some of us have things we need to let go of!
If we all wanted the same things and did things the same way, we’d all have the same stuff.
And yet we don’t. Some have more, some have less.
Those who have more of the good stuff of life? They manifested it through having a clear vision of it.
And believing they were worthy of it.
And taking themselves seriously enough to have the discipline to stick to a plan to make it happen.
And doing what it takes to keep a state of optimism, gratitude and general sense of joy about their lives.
Those with less? They are just as loved and cherished by the Universe/God/Divine Intelligence/choose your own word.
All they’re missing are the SKILLS to make something happen.
Or perhaps the mentorship of someone who can get them into a better flow.
Or maybe some better information, so they don’t have to make the same mistakes over and over.
Or possibly a healthier environment…a sacred circle of people who will honor their commitment and invite them to contribute their own love and energy.

In 2008 I invite you to be a FREAK…like me and others who have the commitment…the courage of their convictions.
You know…the ones who smile at “the rules,” then do what they KNOW is right…for themselves.
Maybe you’re already one of these people and are looking to run with a cooler crowd.
What you’re seeing here is ENTHUSIASM and PASSION.
Without apology. No one else is responsible for my success and prosperity. Just me.
And no one else is responsible for yours. You own it, my friend.
It’s 2008. You’re here.
Now…see it all the way through.
With All My Love And Energy,
Well, other than the last 15 hours, which is when I’m typing these words.
2014 was a crucible year for me. Burning off what wasn’t important, being left with what is.
Or as Scripture says, time to put away childish things.
Honoring the past…the parts that allowed you to get to this gloriously, perfectly imperfect place.
And moving forward.
And the irony is…once we put away those childish things – once we stop trying to capture a past that’s never coming back – we create room for infinite amounts of adventure and play.
Because really…why else would we be here if not for that?
Adventure and play.
Adventure and play.
Make it right with those you hurt in 2014, starting with yourself. As much as you can, without stepping into an unwanted place.
Allow yourself to feel anger and disappointment toward those who hurt you. Then move into forgiveness and love, whether it’s offered or not.
Put away childish things.
And let your best self come out to play.

No matter what you do, be that freak, who listens to and trusts their inner wisdom.
It’s been there, waiting for you to grow up and catch up.
What are you putting away in 2015?
What are you looking forward to?
