Happy New Year and welcome to 2018!
I hope you had a wonderful holiday season and a very happy beginning to this new year.
With 2018 officially here, there are so many opportunities and experiences available to you. This really is a fresh start and a new beginning and my hope for you this year is that you give yourself permission to dream big and to be honest about what it is that you really want to experience this year.
It’s okay to admit it to yourself, in fact when you do it helps to clarify what actions steps need to be taken in order to move closer to the vision you have for yourself. If this thought feels a bit overwhelming, it’s okay just take a breath in through your nose and out through your mouth….good.
The truth is that when you feel guided to move toward something new and away from something else, it’s because you’re being divinely guided. It’s because it’s the right shift or change for you, allowing you to organically move toward the next chapter of your life. The new year is a powerful time to get clear on what you want the next 12 months to look like and feel like for you.
However, one of the things that tends to happen at this time of year, is that we feel excited about the prospect of a new year and all that it holds but we also feel the holiday let down too.
Holiday let down is a real thing and it can show up in lots of different ways.
Sometimes it can feel like:
- Burn Out
- A Need for Quiet or Sleep
- Even Feelings of Sadness that the holiday season is over
This is completely normal and it doesn’t mean that you aren’t excited about the new year or your plans for your new year.
Sometimes people confuse the holiday let down with a sentiment about how their new year will unfold and it’s just not true.
It’s really important to take some time to gently move out of the holiday season in the ways that are right for you so that you can be ready to move into your new year’s plans on your own time table.
Use this in-between time to your advantage right now.
Give yourself permission to slow down and to get really clear on what you would like to focus on this year.
Taking the time to think, feel, and really dive deep into what you want for yourself during 2018 is really important. Think of this time as laying the groundwork for your new year, it’s a great investment in your new year and in yourself.
Sometimes, we feel pushed to go, go, go right out of the gate as soon as the calendar changes to January; but that can sometimes add extra pressure to your plate of things that you’re experiencing and moving through.
During this window of in between time, take some time to really figure out what you want to do this year.
- Set up some clear goals and intentions
- Get out your brand new planner, sparkly markers, stickers etc.
- Power up your new scheduling software
- Make that new Vision Board
- Enjoy this planning phase
You may find that this planning phase allows you to increase excitement, joy, and enthusiasm for your new year while also helping you to work with your natural body rhythms at the same time.
This can help get you all synched up so you make the most of your 2018
by knowing what you want, planning for your goals and intentions to be realized, but also maintaining those plans all year long.
This is a brand new year and a fresh start; you can make this year your best year yet. Breathe, let go, and give yourself permission to be honest about what you really want to experience this year. Try not to focus on how things unfolded last year or any year prior to this year. Instead, focus on what you want, and what you’ll need to do to get there.
- You do have what it takes.
- You are enough.
- Your dreams and the calling of your heart are there for a reason.
- The reason is that it’s what’s right for you.
- Please give yourself permission to go for it this year!
- Yes, You’re Worth it!
With deepest gratitude and new year blessings,
