New Year’s Resolution: Before you change, honor who you already are.

This is the time of year when I get busy. The changing of the year inspires us all to consider the possibility of changing ourselves, but first I would like to invite you to take a moment to honor all that you already are. Here are a couple of tips:

  • Make a list of things you like about yourself. If you feel stuck, think back to a time when you were kind to another person or yourself, or imagine what your best friend, dog or other caring family member would say about you!
  • Subscribe to the Notes from the Universe. Sign up to receive daily affirmations of you and your goals to your inbox 5 days a week (even the Universe takes the weekend off!). Most days I get out of bed and rush to the computer to see what the Universe sent me that morning!

If you are ready to take one step further and honor the power you already have inside to create real and lasting change in your life, join me for the New Year’s Resolution Vision Board Workshop this Wednesday at 6pm. After a period of guided relaxation and self reflection, we will act like kindergartners and cut and paste our visions of 2011 onto poster board.
