I am so DONE with 2013…or am I?

iStock_000014099122XSmallIt’s unanimous. Everyone I have spoken to over the past month has said that 2013 was a year of incredible challenge – and they, like me,  are ready to leave it behind and get on with 2014.  Serious illnesses, deaths, business challenges, long-time relationship breakups and personal hardships – 2013 held them all.

However, before we rush headlong into our new year of possibilities, we need to complete the year that passed. Recapping, reflecting  and completing 2013 will release the energy of the past year and give us the space to fully embrace and move into our best 2014.

I have created a 2013 Personal Reflection Guide to help you complete and let go your 2013. Click to download your  2013 Personal Reflection Guide  I know you will feel lighter and have more mental bandwidth to begin planning your magnificent 2014.

Happy New Year!

Summer Renewal Techniques

Many of my friends have had a tough spring, caring for unwell parents, or battling their own health crises.  I, too, have had a stressful spring watching my mom struggle with her increased symptoms from Parkinson’s Disease. It is easy to forget about self-care when involved in caregiving, yet  it is probably the most critical time to take care of oneself.  

With the accountability support of one of my coaching colleagues, and with the goal of rejuvenating myself, I have instituted a Magic Moments program. Each day I will consciously do something to nourish myself  – create a “Magic Moment” for myself.   I am on day 5 now, and so far I have 1/eaten lunch on my deck outside looking at the beautiful flowers blooming rather than eating a sandwich in front of my computer , 2/ took an entire afternoon off riding my bike, 3/had a pedicure 4/didn’t set my alarm clock and slept in until 10 am…

I am loving my Magic Moments!

I am wondering what you could do this summer to renew your spirit?  What are your favourite summer relaxation techniques? Where do you go to rejuvenate?  What are your magic moments?  I would love to hear them! Comment here.

I’m Starting my New Year in February!

This is the year I got smart…Okay so it took me several decades.   Instead of loading up my January with sweeping New Year’s resolutions, I have decided to start my New Year in February and spend the month of January dreaming up new ideas, themes and possibilities for my business and personal life for 2010.

Read the article in my ezine on 3 easy steps to get you started and then download my New Year’s gift to you – a chapter from my new book, Harmony from the Inside Out – Creating and Living your Performance Potential, on “DO-ABLE GOAL SETTING – THE POWER OF INCREMENTAL IMPROVEMENT”.

If you are located in or around Vancouver, B.C., you may be interested in attending my upcoming Workshop at Le Petit Spa on January 20 and getting some instant support as you “Start your New  Year in February”.  Click here for more details and to register.

Wishing you all an exciting and fulfilling New Year!

Fall Renewal

September is a perfect time for new beginnings and renewal of commitments made.  Rather than focusing on a specific “goal” this fall, I plan to renew commitment to my 2009 theme of “Relentless Self-Care”  (my 2009 theme I sadly forgot about in the busyness of my year to date).  Part of that  renewed commitment to my theme will be to buy myself a new journal and rolling ball fine marker (I am a stationary supply addict after all) and then get journalling  about what “Relentless Self-Care” really means to me. I am imagining it has a lot to do with figuring out some ways to give myself time to think, and to simply “BE”, in the context of my overcommitted schedule. 

How will you renew yourself this fall?  What will that renewal bring you? Comment here!
