Plan “R” is ready to report in for duty in the Here to the New Year in Good Cheer challenge.
Although there are many “R” words in the running for today’s top tip like relax, rejuvenate, roam, radiate, read, renew, receive, reveal, respect, restore, represent, reflect, reign, and shake-rattle-and-roll, one of the revolutionary principles I like to coach people on is resolving to evolve.
Although I have written Reasonably Radical Resolutions to Redefine Your Reality in response to regular resolutions that tend to last as long Rocky Road ice-cream on a ridiculously hot day, resolving to evolve means you repeatedly return to the place where you get to rewrite, re-do, or reinvent yourself as a result of your most recent reach for something outside your comfort zone.
This quote by Rumi sums it up.
“Respond to every call that excites your spirit.”
The reward for risking everything is that you reveal who you really are and this reminds you of what is possible for you.
Instead of removing yourself from any chance encounter with a roly-poly bearded guy and his flying reindeer, see if you can recapture a bit of the Christmas magic by reclaiming your own superpowers and rising to the challenge of realizing your potential.
I know you may resist and possibly resent me for requesting this of you at this time of year, but I want you to ride this year out on a wave of remarkable moments made possible by your commitment to reigniting your rousing curiosity and rejoicing with the totally righteous dudes and dudettes who recognize your rebellion as your resurrection into right livelihood or reassurance that you’re already rollicking along the right track with no regrets.
And one more thing.
Release the need to ricochet or rush around. It will rob you of any peace of mind you may have recovered while reciting riddles in a padded room. Rely on your own rhythm to move at the pace of grace this holiday season.

Right on. Or write on, as I like to say.
