New Year Resolutions – Don’t make too many :-)
Sorry to those who enjoy reading my blog posts, I realise it’s been over a month since my last one! November and December are always manic at this end, not only with Christmas but both my girlies have their birthdays. So it’s generally all go!
Then January started with me having this flu-like virus that seems to be hitting everyone. So it’s been a ropey start to 2015, but still anyone who reads my blog posts will know that it’ll take a lot more than that to get me down!
I’m really looking forward to what 2015 will bring. The universe is already putting things in place for me! I have an intern working with me and helping me to develop Calm Weddings. I’m loving the direction in which Calm Weddings is going. There’s so much to do and so much potential. Now I have Carolanne helping me for 3 months, we can really give the company a boost. She’s brilliant at writing blog posts and knows all about social media. Now for those of you who follow the Law of Attraction, you’ll understand when I say, she is exactly who I visualised! If I’d put down on paper the type of person I wanted to bring into the business, Carolanne fits the bill. So once again, positive thoughts lead to positive things. So watch this space with developments on the Calm Weddings front. I’m now visualising her staying … let’s see what happens.
Like most people I also put in place a number of New Year Resolutions: look after my nails (my worst bad habit is biting them!), start eating healthier and do more exercise. I think the latter two are on most peoples lists. We all start off with good intentions, usually by mid-January there’s a huge slump and by February these resolutions have gone out of the window. Now, I’m determined to make my resolutions work … how do I propose to do this? Well, with focus and constantly feeding myself with good and positive stories. My resolutions are also not exactly strenuous. As I find this can cause huge problems for many people: they set their expectations to high, therefore giving up when the first hurdle is too much of a struggle, or they set too many tasks. Trying to juggle too many things can lead to dropping it all and not doing any of it. Sound familiar? Many of us do this. It’s about taking small steps to achieve your goals. Last year my main focus was my businesses. Now I seem to be on track with these, they are pointing in the right direction, I’m loving learning new things and developing new ideas, I now know that I must start eating healthier. I want to start eating healthier. I love exercise, so I’m determined to fit this into my already busy schedule, as I know this will benefit me in so many ways.
One of the things that keeps me motivated is hearing about other peoples stories and how they’ve succeeded etc. If you’ve read my past blog posts you’ll know I’m a huge fan of Kimberly Synder, who must be one of the most inspiring people when it comes to eating healthy. Her newsletters provide real-life stories of people who have changed their way of thinking and have changed their lives. You must sign up to her website (No, I’m not on commission 😉 ).
So have a real think about your New Resolutions, have you set yourself unrealistic goals? How are you doing at sticking to them? What would help you stick to your goals? Ask yourself these questions and remember to keep at it. You can totally do this. I believe in you, but you must believe in yourself!
