Happy New Year

As the year end approaches many people write goals for the new year. Do you?  If you are looking to make changes in your life, end of a year does provide a nice segueway to letting go of habits that no longer serve you.

Some people create vision boards, with pictures of what they would like to do or have in the new year. Maybe it is a cruise, maybe peace of mind, perhaps a successful career, time with friends, or outdoor adventures. Pictures can be placed on a poster board and decorated.  That vision board is then placed in a visible space so it can serve as a daily reminder. A way to stay focused, energized and motivated.

Some people write their goals, put them in an envelope and seal it. Open it in 6 months and see where they are with their goals and if anything needs readjusting. Others might choose to read their goals daily for a month and put their goals away for a few months until its time to check progress.

Some choose not to set goals, and carry on as before, making changes as needed.

Mary Oliver in her poem The Summer day leaves us with a poignant question that seems fitting when changes are being made…”what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?”

However you choose to move into the  new year, I wish you love, happiness and peace.

  1. The first quarter of 2016 is almost over, and yet, nothing could be more appropriate moving forward than to constantly ask that question: ” how do we want to spend….?”. And then tweak, or change course, as needed. Thank you😊
