Its a New Year and a New You! I hope you all had an amazing New Years! One thing that I love about starting the New Year is looking back and seeing how much fun I had that year and all the amazing memories I created. It makes me realize just how much I grew as a person, and all the goals and things I want to do for the new year. I actually start each year off with a beautiful journal and I set all my goals. Whether they are big or small, I set monthly goals and weekly goals and even daily goals. I feel when you set daily goals you can look back on the day and see if you achieved them. I think its easier to set daily goals. I reminded myself this year that I am starting each day off with “Priming” myself every morning. I think this is the perfect word. ( thank you Tony Robbins). I start my morning rituals by taking time every morning and doing my meditation, prayer and my daily affirmations. I get ready to start my day with my daily prayer and honestly it makes your day so much brighter. I feel I get so much more done. I wrote down all the things that I wanted to do, vacations I wanted to take, and a jumpstart kick on my health. I mean that is the most important right? Taking just 15 minutes every morning of “me time” is amazing. Starting the New year is also a great way to write down ways you want to get to know yourself better. it can be spending more time in nature, getting to more yoga classes, making new friends. It is up to us to know what we will allow and what we won’t allow. It can be no more cake or no more energy drainers as friends( yes I’ve been there). We are in charge of change. We are in charge of growth. Without change, there is NO growth. One thing I have learned along the way of the aging process is how much more wiser you become. You realize the importance of family, spending time with your loved ones more, eating healthier food, getting more exercise. No matter what your goals are, It’s a New Year, and It’s a fresh start to a New You! Every day should be peaceful and you should go out doing what you love and not letting anyone or anything dull your sparkle. Shine Bright Loves!
