Happy New Year! Where’s the remote?
The holidays flew by faster than I could appreciate them. Have you ever seen that Adam Sandler movie Click? In the movie the main character gets a remote control that allows him to fast forward and skip through parts of his life. While he’s forwarding or skipping through events, his mind skips ahead while his body is on “autopilot”. It’s that feeling many of us survive on to get through hours, days or even whole periods of our lives. The movie was largely panned, but the idea and message has always stayed with me and I think that’s more important than the overall reviews. The end idea was that the remote was a bad thing. We should never want to wish away parts of our lives. Still, if only I could get my hands on one of those remotes! But, I feel like I’m already living on fast forward. If I had a remote I would use it to slow down time, appreciate the little things, live my life to its fullest possibilities, and be my most productive.
Here’s to a great 2011, where we complete all the things we have our hearts set on and appreciate and use wisely all the time we have.
