Happy New Year!
Thanks so much for being with me over the last year, whether as a visitor to my site or listening to my 28 Days of Resilience audios. I’m very happy to be alongside you for whatever changes may be coming your way in 2018.
It’s a new year, at least on our calendar, and that tends to bring with it the marketing assault on all the ways we ‘should’ be changing – ‘new year, new you’ in all its forms.
The thing is, a date on a calendar doesn’t have any power to deliver us a new lease of life, renewed motivation, commitment or willpower.
That’s why so many resolutions are broken before January’s even over.
So instead of making promises that seem like a good idea at the time but aren’t really built on a solid foundation, what if, instead, we just take a moment to reflect on these questions:
- What would I love to do more of this year?
- What would I love to create?
- What would I choose to do, if it’s ok to fail?
You may find that as you sit with these questions, something a little more inspired than the usual ‘go to the gym’ or ‘be more assertive’ comes to mind. I’d love to hear what you come up with! Feel free to reply to this email and let me know.
For me, this is shaping up to be a year of writing, publishing and connecting. I have two books nearly ready to publish: one is an adaptation of the 28 Days of Resilience audios, and one is a book that has been incubating (excuse the pun) for a long time, on being happy without children.
I’m excited to get them out of my head and into the world in the next month or so, for different reasons, but mostly so they can be out there doing their job of helping as many people as possible find a little more peace of mind and clarity in their lives.
I’m also in the process of putting together some new offerings for one-to-one coaching which I love doing – it’s one of my favourite ways of sharing the inside-out understanding.
Whatever’s on the horizon for you in 2018, either planned or unexpected, I wish you health, happiness and peace of mind as you navigate life’s path.
