I started 2012 with the decision to let go and have no goals. I called it "The 2012 Experiment."
So, how did that work out for me?
In a word...it was awesome, probably my best and most satisfying year to date, filled with many wonderful surprises.
I felt more balanced, trusting, and "in the flow." I had a lot more fun and good times. Life felt like more of an adventure where I let go of trying to control anything... where I accepted that I didn't have all (or any) of the answers... where I acknowledged that I didn't know what was going to happen next, yet trusting that whatever did, it would be good... or at least, for my highest good.
Results From The 2012 Experiment
Here are some of the highlights from my 2012 experiment:
ZenChill Power Tools Blog
My blog continued to grow and attract more readers and subscribers, finally reaching over 200,000 page views on the site. Thank you to all who have visited and supported it over the years. In 2012, I expanded my content and started video blogging more frequently and discovered that people love watching videos. In fact, my video "How to Get Rid of Stress or Anxiety in 2 Minutes" received 7,500+ views. How cool is that!?

Twitter - @zenchill
I originally started my Twitter account to share quotes and resources that I found helpful and inspiring. This simple intention has grown to over 7,500+ daily followers. Last year, some of the individual quotes that I published on Twitter ended up reaching 20,000+, 30,000+ and even 50,000+ people in some cases. Astonishingly, the most popular quote that I published on Twitter in 2012 spread to over 219,000+. I am frankly still amazed and "blown away" by all of this.

The truth is that I launched my Facebook page to have a place where I could publish longer quotes that were too big for Twitter's 140 character limit. Funny, I remember thinking that if 30 people choose to "like" and follow my Facebook page that would be cool. When I received just over 100+ "likes" in 2012, this was better than anything that I expected. So, "thank you" to all who followed me there.

I am so grateful for all of the opportunities to work with my Energy Healing clients. In 2012, I was humbled and honored to receive some incredible client testimonials for my Energy Healing work.

In 2012, I also received an invitation to appear as a guest on a local cable television show here in Los Angeles. As an Energy Healer, I was asked to discuss how to eliminate stress at school, work, and daily life. I was truly touched by the positive response and feedback from this appearance.

2013 and Beyond
Based on the results and all that I experienced during my 2012 experiment, I have decided to continue with my "no goals" approach indefinitely and do my best to let go and welcome instead, all of the great things and delightful surprises that life has in store for me.
