So many people get to a point where they know what it is they’re supposed to be doing or being.  They “get it”, they have an “aha!” moment, they figure things out and have a whole new lease on life.

That’s great!!! Ok, but then what?  Because knowing something doesn’t mean squat if you don’t do something about it.  You know “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.”  Knowing is the first step, but a dance is made of more than one step.  The next step is to act on that knowing.  To do things differently that you have before, to change you rather than think that you have changed.

This is really relevant at this very moment.  Solstice helped us turn our sight inward and being around our family and friends shook things loose.  Whether through abundant joy and happiness as a counter point to the rest of the year thereby reminding us of what we want in our lives all year round or by jarring us into seeing things that need to be fixed/changed/healed by pushing buttons, acting badly, or just rubbing us the wrong way.  In either direction we are now looking inward at everything which is all stirred up as if we’re a snowglobe that’s been shaken rather thoroughly.

So the question is, do you act on what all this knowing or do you angst about it until it goes away for another year.  Do you pack it away like the holiday decorations, returning things you can’t stand for more pleasant options, or do you take a deep breath and start doing what you know?
