I always see January 1st as a fresh start, although if I’m honest its always usually January 7th by the time I make the appropriate changes that I planned! It takes a good week to come down from the buzz of Christmas but I get there eventually!
I spend some time contemplating the last year. What can I improve on that perhaps I didn’t do particularly well with. Where shall I be taking my business in 2017. What personal achievements do I want in 2017. I see the mistakes I’ve made in business and in life, I see the strength I’ve had. I see my beautiful little family standing strong beside me and that in actual fact, I’m stronger than I realise. That in fact I can achieve whatever it is I desire as long as I believe I can.
I make notes, I make lists, I organise the shit out of the year ahead! Always in a fresh new notebook, which is important if one is starting over a new! 😉 I start as I mean to go on, ok kinda because theres still loads of christmas chocolate left in the house and those chocolate coins are screaming out to be eaten! But the motivation to make this year my best yet is strong!
I see so much light at the end of the tunnel for the year ahead, light that perhaps has only been a dim flicker for the last 6 years. I’ve won some and I’ve lost some and I’m ok with that now.
The lovely Sarah and Lisa mentioned that they have a word for the year. A word they keep by them to help them along throughout the months, reminding them that they are capable of whatever it is they plan. It got me thinking about what my word would be for this year. It didn’t take much thinking to be honest. My word for 2017 is going to be BRAVE. Brave enough to be me regardless of what others may think. Brave enough to follow my dreams. Brave enough to hold my head high and move forward into 2017.
What word would you choose for the coming year?
I’ve plans for new creative makes. Seasonal artwork and a possible new little person (of the fictional variety) for my little business this year. It’s all about following the pull of the seasons, my love of all that is nature and the causes and effects of a time well spent out in the wild.
Now if I could just add a few more hours to each day, I may get my Etsy shop re stocked, sooner rather than later!!
Wishing you all the strength to achieve your goals and desires throughout the coming year.
