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
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!
