As you start 2018, how about you let go of old ways, regrets, lessons learned, empty intentions and “on paper only” goals and you wipe the slate clean? This is a new year and, in many ways, is very different than the start of 2017. Wiping the slate clean makes room for fresh thinking, new approaches and determining what is needed right now.
Wiping the slate clean can mean anything you’d like it to. For me, wiping the slate clean involves starting anew and committing to what I want to accomplish and do in 2018. No burdens, just setting my direction, considering realities and moving forward.
Wiping the slate clean is a fresh start and holds the promise of creating a successful and fulfilling year ahead.
First of all, Happy New Year !! May 2018 be all that you dream of and more.
As we enter 2018, are there any doors left to close from 2017? Closing them gives you a fresh start in the new year. Anything that you have left unsaid or undone? Anything to tie up? Anything to leave behind?
Bring the new you into 2018 and you can’t miss! Let those doors close, so that you can open the new doors that await you.

Some cultures see existence as an endless circle with no beginning or end. As you near the marker of year’s end, you can still be on this circle of existence, passing through another year. There is a clear difference between a circle and a finite line. How would you look differently at this time if you looked at life as a circle?
What will you continue in 2018? What comes with you from 2017? How will 2018 enrich your 2017 experience?
Wishing you fulfillment and joy as you go around the circle one more time!

Venture – a risky or daring journey or undertaking.
The holidays are here. They can be a time of joy and pain, connection and disconnection, reaching and hiding and hope and discouragement. Within their energy, conditions may be right for you to “venture”. You can ride on the wings of positivity or pick yourself up from being down.
What do you dream of? What has held you back from pursuing that dream? Are you ready to venture closer to that dream? You may encounter uncertainty. It may take some time. That’s okay. Get started on your venture and by the time the holidays are here in 2018, bet you’ll be in a whole new place!

The new year has begun. Are you fit for the journey? How will you maintain your stamina in 2017?
Stamina is the ability to sustain prolonged physical or mental effort. A key element of stamina is fitness – physical strength, mental acuity and emotional readiness. Also key is balance. To maintain your stamina, consider what keeps you going. Do you need a lot of sleep? What is the best balance for your life? How much physical exercise do you need? How do you preserve a positive emotional outlook? Do you need variety in your life to keep you challenged?
How will you maintain your stamina in 2017?

At the start of the new year, are you proactive or reactive? You have a choice – to actively begin the year the way you want it to be or to let the new year take you on a ride that is determined by what happens to you.
What are you beginning this year? What dreams are you moving closer to? What skills are you enhancing? What changes are you preparing for?
Better to set your direction, than to drift without aim. Make 2016 a year of your choosing!
A positive mindset is a big factor in success. Are you ready to hit the ground running in 2016? Take the remaining days of 2015 to create a positive mindset for 2016. Visualize, with no limits, what you want your new year to be. Create some practices that will assure that you keep your positive mindset throughout the year. Make a few new year resolutions and check in each month to assess how you are doing with them.
Keep your focus on happiness and accomplishment and you can’t lose. Wishing you a 2016 that exceeds all your expectations!
