Here’s a question that’s been on my mind for a couple of days now.

Not all the time, mind you.

On and off-ish, you know?

It just rests in the back of my mind, and every now and then it pops up and I feel into it.

And since 2018 is getting closer every day, it’s the perfect time to feel into it some more.

I thought you might like to dive into it as well.


This is the question:

What if 2018 was your last year on this planet?

What if you knew that on December 31, 2018, you’d be DONE with this life and this business you have now, and you’d have no more some-days or I’ll-just-wait-a-bit-longers ahead of you?

What would you do next year?


Don’t dismiss this question too quickly, either because you resist thinking about this or because you think you know the answer already.

Maybe you do know the answer – but maybe, a deeper desire comes up for you.

What would you do if 2018 was your last year on earth?

What would you stop doing?

What do you want more of?

And what do you want to spend less time on?

Who would you call into your life?

And who would you say goodbye to?


Just BE with these questions and see what comes up.

Nothing new has popped up for me yet.

Maybe it will and maybe it won’t.

The question hasn’t let go of me, though.

Which might mean nothing at all.

Or it might mean that a new or slightly different desire is on its way to me now.

I’m open and curious to see what unfolds for me next.

It’s all good.


What new or slightly different desire is on its way to YOU?

What’s ready to unfold for YOU?

Open up and be curious.

You never know what magic and miracles are on their way to you now …
