Every once in a while it is good to ask, “What’s The Point?” You can ask this question about a number of things – your career, the amount of time you put into your work, your goals or the way you are living your life. In doing so, you re-center and check up on the alignment of your life with what you want to accomplish and be.
How does your answer to this question measure up? Are you where you want to be? Are you moving forward? Hopefully you are. If not, you now have what you need to change direction.

Yes, a bright 2019 is possible. You can make it so. How? By starting on the inside and shining your unique light in the world. What is unique about you? Something special and totally you. Is it a skill, an attitude, a talent, a personality trait? Take that uniqueness and bring it to the world, in any way you can. Then, see how it brightens your year.
What kind of light do you intend you shine?

With 2018 on its way out, are you experiencing any other endings? As things end in your life or work, it helps to acknowledge them and honor the presence they had in your life. That way, you can be free of them and start anew with other things. Endings are best not ignored.

10, 9, 8… It will soon be the end of the year. What is left undone? 2018 can still be the year you intended it to be. Move quickly and do whatever you can. If it seems you are out of time – go for it. There are still things you can do to enter 2019 in a good place.

This month is a great time to focus on what may be holding you back from what you want to accomplish. Doing this allows you to eliminate obstacles and start the new year at your best.
What do you think is stopping you? Identify it and address it. Find a way to make it disappear.

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!
