Its you year ALL Year!

January 1st has come and gone; in fact, most of the month has already slipped through our fingertips like the melted butter corrupting our proposed diet. But you haven’t started work towards your New Year’s resolutions (your YOU Year) yet. And you know what I have to say to that? So what! That’s right, so what? So what if you didn’t start stepping towards progress on the first of this month, or the first of ANY month?

Your purpose and abilities don’t run on some man-made calendar nor do they tick away with the clock mounted on your wall. This is your time… your time to take back your power, your voice, and your life but there’s no ribbon cutting or finish line you’re racing off to.

There Is No Magical Start Date

You can start your journey at ANY point in your life. ANY age. ANY day of the week. ANY time of day. ANYwhere in the world. The magic starts the day you take action.

You are in control of pushing the start button and when you do there’s going to ebb and flows in your energies and commitments… It’s normal. It doesn’t mean you won’t succeed. It just means you are human.

Some things you can do to prepare yourself for that masterful button-push include:

Clearing Out the Clutter

Out with the old- more room for the NEW!

  • Get rid of the “extra” that no longer serves you.

  • Organize and re-home for convenience and function (not just for the aesthetic)

  • Jot down the negative thoughts that feed your mental migraines and rip them up. So therapeutic. Brain clutter be gone!

Paperwork Push

Pushing through some of life’s required documents seems so boring; hence why so many of us procrastinate on this. BUT, if you get it out of the way BEFORE your YOU year, you will feel the positive impact a clean slate offers with time and mental health management. (It also can save your wallet some too!) 

  • Get ahead of those taxes and get prepped to file.

  • Business owners and self-employed friends: update subscriptions, pay annual fees, balance your books, and clear out your email.

  • Go through all the papers you have collected throughout the year.

Reviewing Your Year

Dig deep and review the past year so you can recognize where you’d like to see yourself and life progress in the year to come.

  • Take a journey through the past year and note what was successful vs. what challenged you, what you celebrated vs. what you dreaded.

  • Celebrate ALL the wins you accomplished this past year to recognize your growth and include those steps you might have overlooked from this year already too!

  • Make a list (write this one down- you won’t regret it) of all the elements that make up the person you envision to be your best self.

    What are they? Many times, this is an approachable way for us to define areas we want to grow in, which then equate to specific goals we aim to achieve.

  • Pick up to ONE big goal for the year and THREE medium ones.

    There can definitely be smaller goals to go along with them, but if you get too lofty, you might just set yourself up for failure.

Locking-Down Logistics 

You will feel more relaxed and able to concentrate when you’re where you need to be with all of the logistical headaches already out of the way. Plan for next year’s moments!

  • Go through the calendar for the upcoming year and mark off dates for vacations, excursions, planned work trips, or anything else you might know about ahead of time.

  • Go through the events you just jotted down and start planning the logistics.

    Reserve that hotel room, schedule a rental, book a flight (you save more money booking far in advance too!), or call and get on your Doctor’s schedule for that annual health check.

  • COMMUNICATE these plans and appropriate details to all parties that need to know .

Taking Some Time 

Now that you’ve locked down and crossed off a lot of the new year’s stressors already, take some time to regenerate yourself. Mental + Emotional Balance = Harmony. Want harmony? I do! 

  • Go through the events you just jotted down and start planning the logistics.

    Reserve that hotel room, schedule a rental, book a flight (you save more money booking far in advance too!), or call and get on your Doctor’s schedule for that annual health check.

  • Pamper yourself - do something that you find relaxing

  • Pretty yourself up - this includes anything that makes you feel confident and beautiful in your own skin

  • Rest your body AND your mind - 8 hours of sleep is so much easier with a little meditation!

Don’t fret or kick yourself for “a late start” because, well, there is no such thing as a late start when it comes to reconnecting with your authentic self and finding your passion and zest for life. 

Repeating myself is definitely worthwhile here….It’s NEVER too late to start your journey back to YOU! Don’t let the calendar decipher that for you – leave that to the small voice inside pushing forward to break free. Take these prep steps when you are ready and I will see you on the path to freedom and fulfillment!
