2017: In the NOW

“This is success, starting a new day, every day, with freshness and vigor.” —Pamela Wight

On December 31 at 20:17 p.m. my friends and I stood below Canada’s Parliament Buildings and watched the 2017 fireworks that kicked of the celebrations of our country’s 150th year. I said, “One of the things I love about fireworks is they force you to stay in the NOW.”

Don’t blink. Don’t let the mind wander away to other preoccupations. Don’t look away. Stay focused. Stay Present. Stay in the NOW or you’ll miss them.

It reminded me of the post Success NOW that went up on Roughwighting before Christmas. I thought I would share it with you NOW. This is your 2017 success, starting a new year, every year, with freshness and vigour. (I’m Canadian. I have to add the “u.”) 🙂

(Read it to see the NOW clock. You’ll love it.)

Success NOW

  1. Thanks for this lovely addition to my early snow-covered morning. Sipping dark roast coffee (for better or worse) and feeling my gratitude for being in a loving community of 60 kindred spirits with my devoted husband-life partner of 12 years. To me, right NOW, that is success.
