It is either the altitude here in Arequipa or the writing of this eNewsletter that is bringing a feeling of dizziness. Most likely, it’s the latter.

2014 will be an interesting year with excitement and adventure for those who open themselves UP! to the wonders of life and the world. We meet those people who have a zest for life and consistently have a willingness to say ‘yes’ to what is presented to them. Then, there are those people who seem perfectly content to remain in the comfort of familiar environments and thus prefer to decline different experiences. When it is true contentment that is keeping those folks at bay from walking a different path, then we can share in their peace, joy and simple way of living. However, if it is FEAR that is holding those people back from trying new things and living life to the fullest, then sometimes all we can do is sympathize. One of the ways to recognize fear is that is manifests itself in people as  ‘waiting’. Since little happens when you only sympathize with someone or when people just wait, I wish to quote Dr. Seuss from one of my all time favourite children’s books ‘Oh, the Places You’ll Go!’:

“…for people just waiting. Waiting for a train to go or a bus to come, or a plane to go or the mail to come, or the rain to go or the phone to ring, or the snow to snow or waiting around for a Yes or No or waiting for their hair to grow. Everyone is just waiting. Waiting for the fish to bite or waiting for wind to fly a kite or waiting around for Friday night or waiting, perhaps, for their Uncle Jake or a pot to boil, or a Better Break or a string of pearls, or a pair of pants or a wig with curls, or Another Chance. Everyone is just waiting.

NO! That’s not for you! Somehow you’ll escape all that waiting and staying. You’ll find the bright places where…”

If you want or need more excitement in life, say ‘yes’ more often, read an inspirational book or enjoy an adventure filled movie like UP! Wishing you a fabulous New Year with bright possibilities.

Blessings and Love,
