New Year’s resolutions may be fading. Don’t give up on them – every day is a new beginning.

Jan 21, 2019 | Blog

Holding to our resolutions can be really difficult – that’s why there are so many wry jokes about broken resolutions. You know the familiar one – May all your troubles last as long as your New Year resolutions.

But I need to argue on behalf of that resolution or even the many resolutions you may have made. There was a special part inside of you that wanted that resolution to manifest for you – that wanted the opportunity for you to be your best self.  So, the fact that the 1st January is long gone is no reason to give up on that special part of you.

Each morning is a time to start the day by seeing it afresh, as a clean slate. Yes, yesterday’s choices and decisions have been made, but you have not made today’s choices and decisions yet. You still have the chance to choose how you are going to be today.

You probably recognise all the things you need to do to manifest the New Year’s resolution. If this is the year to write the book; well you’ve just got to sit down at the keyboard tapping out the story. If you want that great body you know it is all about lifestyle.

BUT remember, where you have the opportunity to exercise the ultimate choice each day is in choosing your attitude towards doing what needs to be done. Attitude has so much to do with lifting your focus of the task or activity required – lifting it high into the sky above and remembering what you are ultimately wanting to achieve. Maybe imagining how you will feel autographing your book at the launch in that favourite book shop. Or standing in the boutique looking in the mirror and knowing that your great body is showing of the outfit, rather than hoping tht the outfit will make you look good.

If you can hold in mind the ‘why’ behind your resolution, it will help you to keep going through the ‘slog’ of making it happen.

Each day offers a fresh start to renew your inspiration of why you are doing what you are doing. Look around you for symbols of what you can see, and what you can hear, and what you can feel, that will replenish your inspiration.

So, with more than 300 days of 2019 still ahead of you, keep refuelling your inspiration tank – each day is a new beginning!

Women are successful in their own right

Women are successful in their own right

Traditional gender norms suggest that men are naturally strong and assertive, while women are the nurturers and care givers. Despite significant progress in the field of gender equality, traditional gender roles in the workplace, and elsewhere in life, can be difficult to shake.

Women are often told to “man-up” to become more successful. While it’s true that anyone who wants to be successful must be robust, tenacious and tough, women don’t need to buy into the idea that they need to mimic men to achieve their own success.

Seeing the light in the darkness

Start your day by scrolling through your Newsfeed and you’ll probably have at least 10 reasons to roll over and hide under the covers. There’s lots of suffering and struggle in the world, not to mention your personal challenges. Although you can reduce your exposure to news of suffering (actually don’t start your day with your newsfeed), suffering is still inevitable.

Respect your body

Respect your body

It’s safe to say we’ve all been there, you are tired, so you skip making dinner and eat an unhealthy snack instead. You have a night out with friends and skip the gym the next morning. When work piles up, the first thing that suffers is sleep. The problem is, the more often this happens, the more your health is affected.

Cultivating self-respect through gratitude

Cultivating self-respect through gratitude

R.E.S.P.E.C.T! Yes, it’s a well-known song and a word often used when it comes to teaching children how to interact with adults, but there is more to it than just being a catchy tune. Respect is effectively the glue that holds relationships together. It can be defined as “esteem for, or a sense of the worth, or excellence of a person, a personal quality, or ability”.

Nurture your inner child, no matter your age

Nurture your inner child, no matter your age

All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.’ A cliché? Yes, but there may just be a dot of truth to it. Everyone knows that play is good for kids. It promotes physical and mental development and provides an opportunity for healthy social interaction. But as kids get older, time for free play gets less, until adulthood, when it just about disappears altogether.
