HAPPY NEW YEAR! HAPPY 2018! GOODBYE 2017!

 

 

For many, 2017 was filled with unpleasantries, anger, sadness, major changes, loss…OK, you get the point!  2017 is over!! Should we continue to complain about all the crap shoveled to us or should we close the book on all that – as difficult as that is! And I know that it can be very difficult not to mull over things that didn’t go right in your life!!

FINE!  Things didn’t go right?? Put your hands on your hips and choose left instead!  If you don’t feel like doing that today, that’s fine too!! You don’t have to be perfect!  In fact, be perfectly imperfect!! But don’t wait until the end of the year, however, or you’ll be right back where you started last year!

Let 2018 be about being real with ourselves for once; whatever that may mean for YOU! Let’s stop trying to be perfect and just do the best we can with what we’re facing that day!  What would that look like? A whole lot of happy that’s what! The pressure is taken off to perform like a circus monkey all the time!

You know what I’m going to say next, right??  Resolutions for the new year!  HA! No! I wasn’t going to say that!  Resolutions are ideas people throw to the wind as they are downing they’re third glass of whatever makes them happy.  What we need are GOALS!!

I am the biggest believer of DREAMING BIG, but I know one thing for sure… Big Dreams can only come true when YOU make them happen! Let me repeat that:

YOU HAVE TO MAKE THEM HAPPEN!!

I have put together a simple 2-part workshop for doing just that!

Happy Planning to Make Happy Dreams Happen  ($20) 

Week 1: Jan 15, 2018

  • Choosing one big dream from the thousands of dreams we want to accomplish at the same time
  • Creating a Vision Board to support your one big dream

Week 2: Jan 22, 2018

  • Breaking it down and organizing it in bite size pieces
  • The plan

You’ll get:

  • an e-book in PDF format that you can download and be able to refer to whenever you would like to revisit this class.
  • 4 private YouTube videos

If you would like to sign up for this workshop, please email me for more information:

Every month will have a different workshop dedicated to that month.  A 2 week workshop is simple. Life is complicated enough with so much technology thrown at us from every angle.  Sometimes we just need to take a step back and take a couple of weeks for ourselves and reevaluate what is important for us.

Life should be simple, happy and laughing…

 

 

 

 

New Year, New You!

Happy New Year to one and all! New goals, new dreams… Which ones will make it on this year’s list? Which ones will make it on your long term list and which outrageous dreams are too scary to even put on a list? We all have them; those dreams that whisper to us when we think we’re not listening.  Dreams that scare us so much we wish we had the courage to accomplish and yet back down when given the opportunity to shine.

Michelangelo said: “The greater danger for most of us lies not in setting our aim too high and falling short; but in setting our aim too low, and achieving our mark.”

To that, I say: achieve your smaller goals and get inspired to do more.  Baby steps!  Write down the dreams that scare you, the ones you don’t think are possible and open your mind up to the possibility that at some point throughout the next 365 days (minus 9), the universe will drop ideas in your lap to help you fulfill them!  Maybe it will take longer than this year to get it done but the way I see it, the time will pass regardless!

For all my Canadian friends reading this: There’s no CAN’T in CANADA – just CAN!!!

 

 

Do we dare say spring?

Well the weather outside is frightf… HA!!! It’s sunny and beautiful!! And Spring has finally sprung in our parts of the world! Hurray hurray! The snow has melted and before long it will be time to clean up our flowerbeds and rake the grass and invite all that is new and beautiful back into our lives for another season of glorious colour!!  Spring always lends itself to new beginnings and feelings of renewal!  Almost like making resolutions for the New Year.  Maybe spring is meant to be a reminder of resolutions and goals we might have made at the onset of a brand new year!  Green grass, blooming flowers and the promise of warmer days ahead. Now that is HAPPY!!
