2013: What Does It Mean To Me?

It’s the first day of the new year.  A time when people feel tired, a little worse for wear after celebrations the night before.  A time to reflect and to decide that things really are to be different this year.  Take a moment to think about your 2012 and all that happened in the past 12 months.  Use today and in fact the entire month of January to make conscious choices about how the next 12 months are going to be for you

I’m starting the year by participating in the Ultimate Blog Challenge hosted by a dear friend Michelle Shaeffer (I had Michelle feature as a guest on last week’s podcast episode of my radio show – listen in here!) and her colleague Michele Scism – together they have been running 4 successful challenges each year teaching bloggers how to get their blogs to soar!

What does this mean?  It means I’ll be posting something every day for the coming month.  It’ll likely just be a short message on my reflections over the month as I take up my own challenge to make conscious choices about how the next 12 months are going to be for me in my life and business

Day 1: 2013 What Does It Mean To Me?Happy New Year

2013 is for me a fresh start.  I’ll be totally honest here, 2012 sucked for me in so many ways.  It also held some of the greatest opportunities for me to gain self understanding and on a professional level it was a successful year for me.  I achieved goals I didn’t really think I would, made and sustained some inspiring and powerful connections, worked with more and more committed, passionate, determined clients who saw abundant results in their own lives and businesses and so much more

That said I ended 2012 tired.  No, make that exhausted!

I am now excited about the prospects of the new year but wondering where to get the motivation, drive and determination I need to make it as successful as I know it has the potential to be.  So 2013 to me is all about self support.  It is about balancing my energy, taking time out when I know I need to, not when I fall in a heap.  It is about filling myself with nourishment – good food, plenty of activity, inspiring learning, saying yes to dynamite opportunities, connecting with people who speak my language and are willing to support me and receive my support in return.  It’s about loving and being loved.  It’s about colour and feeling fully alive each and every day.  It’s about things being effortless, easy, free and limitless

It’s going to be a great year.  I can just feel it!

What’s 2013 mean to you?  love you to share your thoughts below

    Great post Shannon!
    2013 means a fresh beginning for me. It means healthy and energetic living, renewed confidence, believing in myself after a pretty tough 2012 (personally). My theme is GO BIG, CONSISTENTLY!
    Can’t wait to see your work in 2013 and support you wherever I can!
    Cheers, Caylie

    Shannon,

    I just got off a Webinar with one of my favorite bloggers – Ray Higdon. The major point that he made at least a half dozen times was that THE major thing is MINDSET. It looks like your are taking the mindset challenge very seriously for the coming year. I’m taking part in the Ultimate Blog Challenge as well so we will be supporting each other during the coming 31 days! Oh Hale Yes!

    Regards,
    Hale

    I think, as with many others, 2012 just was kind of not so much fun on a personal level. But we all have pulled up our boot straps, hunkered down and for me … I am so looking forward to an amazingly abundant and awesome year for 2013! I am so proud of everyone who has pushed through and are ready to share our shining stars with the world in this new year!!!

    Shannon,

    Thanks for reminding us that we must take care of physical, psychological, emotional, and mental needs if we are to be the gift that we should be to the world. Moving and acting with intention is my goal for 2013, rather than going in every direction for the sake of being busy. Here’s to you accomplishing your goals!

      Hi Jacqueline

      thanks for taking the time to read and comment – I see everything as a wholistic experience and find that when some part of us is forgotten or misplaced that the other parts just don’t seem to work so well

      wishing you the best with your goal for 2013! I get a feeling the word intention is a powerful one for this year

      wishing you a limitless life filled with succulent, effortless success
      Shannon
