Can you believe this year is pretty much over?! I mean holy cow, 2016! I can remember back when I was in grade school, calculating how old I would be and now here I am heading right into that same year. OMG! Let me pause for a moment and adjust to the fact that my 32nd birthday is right around the corner, not to mention the Mercury retrograde right before it. But that's a post for another time.
Let's talk about 2016, putting plans into action and about our resolutions. 2016 is a major year for us, while 2015 was the year of letting go, change and tough lessons, it also prepared us for the major push we are about to have. The New Year is for putting our plans into action, getting our shit together and becoming stronger than ever before. Whoah, right?! I have been paying attention to all the signs, getting ready to jump on my A game. I know you are too, let's kick some ass!
When the New Year hits we will get a push to go for our passions and find what we love. These can, and most of the time will, bring us to what we are mean to do in life. I wouldn't be where I am now if it weren't for the experiences in my past. Leaving and changing jobs, relationships, friendships, life, all of it. I've walked a long road to get where I am and I know I still have way more road to cover before the end. So it's time to think, really think of what makes you happy. Need some ideas? Dedicate a page in your journal and label it "Passion Page". Write down things that you love to do, things that make you happy, compliments, strengths and desires.
Now highlight the things that stand out to you the most, do you see a trend, does something scream, "I'm over here!"? Now take another page and write about it. What does it say to you, how does it make you feel? Time to start planning and putting things into action. Is one of your biggest dreams to live and work in the big city? Write down the things that you would have to achieve that. Then make yourself a realistic timeline to follow. *Side note, only continue if you are truly ready to make these changes. Planning and putting things into action need to be clear, concise and honest. Think things through and talk it out with supportive people.* This timeline is what will help you keep track of where you are, how far you've come, goals achieved and what's left to accomplished. It can also help keep you accountable, but if your like me and need someone to keep you accountable ask a friend to help out. Make a plan for 1-6 months first, put down your tasks by day, week and month. Give yourself rewards for each goal accomplished and then one major and final reward when you have achieved your goal. Set up reminders in your phone, put up post its, what ever you need to do to stay on track.
Now let's talk about our resolutions. On some level we all make them each year. More than half of us no matter how good our intentions, we fall off the wagon. So how do we make resolutions that stick:
So my dears, now comes the time to put your dreams and resolutions into action. Think about the things that make you the happiness. Don't apologize for wanting things, don't regret decisions and don't ever get down on yourself. You are a bright star and you are meant to shine. Together we all shine to make the night sky sparkle. How will you make 2016 sparkle? What are some of your resolutions and what is your plan on making them stick?
Happy Freaking New Years Babes!
