Let's celebrate
Today, as we approach Christmas and the end of 2023, I would like to encourage us all to exit this year with GRATITUDE.

Let's not remind ourselves of our failures; the 5 kilos we didn't lose, the healthy diet we didn't stick to, the patience we failed to show our kids when they needed it, the yoga practice we never started, the extra income we didn't bring in, the quality time with family we never prioritised, that promotion at work we didn't get, the goals we set which we failed to reach. 

Instead, this year, as we put Christmas behind us and begin to look forward to 2024, let's start a new process of being grateful. Each day, look back on your day and your year and really pull out all the things that you can be grateful for. Turn the misses into wins. What did you learn? What is the silver lining? Look under the dirty carpet, find the sparkly coin. Fill your pockets with hidden treasures and appreciate every single one of them for what they are; another thing to be grateful for, no matter how big or how small. That way you give yourself the gift of starting the new year with your cup filled to the brim. 

So, today, I celebrate 2023. 

I am thankful for:-
  • My son, my partner, my friends, and every single human being who have been part of my life in every capacity.
  • My garden, my house and my neighbourhood. I love where I live and the people in it. 
  • Peace in my life, something which often gets taken for granted, but in our current world climate cannot go unnoticed in the light of what is happening in the world right now. 
  • Freedom and choice.
  • My dog and my cat. They bring a smile to my face every single day.
  • My skills, my education and my curiosity. 
  • The limiting beliefs that I have uncovered, which have brought me closer to my truth and my destination.
  • The parents and clients who I have had the honour of serving who have helped me grow.
  • The other people I have encountered on my journey which have given me the wings with which to fly (you know who you are)
  • The time I have been blessed with every day where I could connect with myself and my loved ones
  • My ability to laugh and be silly. 
  • The learnings I experience every single day and the growth which takes place as a result of it. 
  • My past and the people in it, because it has brought me to where I am today.
  • My future, because I know that I have the power to create it.  
My aim for 2024? 

To begin and continue on in 2024 with intention, awareness, and a higher vibration. To journal everyday and to practice living mindfully. To live less in worry and more in abundance. To remember to give thanks and to have faith. To trust. To set goals, let go of the outcome and relish in the process. To model a kind of living that I would like my son to live as he navigates his own journey. To live imperfectly and be ok with it. To not beat myself up over mistakes but to embrace them as learnings. To repair with people when I need to and to be humble in doing so. To show kindness to others and to live from a place of service. To be less judgemental and more curious. To be. 

If you are reading this, thank you for taking the time to do so. And thank you for supporting me on my journey. I hope that we will cross paths again in 2024 and that the new year allows you to fill your cup, to live in the moment, to connect with your kids, to flourish in your relationships and to thrive in all areas of your life. And if that seems too much to ask for, just pick one and do that. 

And remember, if you need support in making 2024 the year that you finally connect authentically with yourself and your kids, when you can take control of your life, your parenting and your future, send me a message. 

Let's chat. 

Wishing you a very happy New Year with Peace, Love and Joy.
