Take a moment for a mindset check. Where are you? Are you feeling that it’s all doom and gloom? Or are you feeling that possibilities abound?

Can you feel the excitement of doing or trying something new? I love learning, exploring new places and meeting new people. Stepping towards something different can energize us in ways we never expected. It can open new paths of exploration and thinking. Are you going to try something new this year? I just enrolled in a mindfulness training class. I’m so excited to explore more deeply a topic that I’ve been interested in for a long while. I’m open to learning and seeing where this might take me. What will be new for you this year?
One of the beautiful aspects about this time of year is that we get to push that reset button. We have a whole new year with 365 days to explore. What is important to you? Perspective and patience is everything. Change isn’t instant and reaching your goals won’t be either. You have time to pursue them at a reasonable pace. Small changes made regularly, one day at a time, one decision at a time, will add up to success in the course of one year. What will you commit to now? What will you work towards? You can make a difference in one year’s time.
No matter where you are or what has happened in the first few days of this New Year, take a moment to use these three gifts: Happy…New…Year. Locate, reflect, and plan for an outstanding year ahead. There will be bumps and glitches and unanticipated snags. There will also be amazing days of insight, growth and success. Find your bearings and forge forth with energy and determination. Where are you headed? I’d love to hear your thoughts. I invite you to join the conversation!
