A wonderful year ahead!

"We all get the exact same 365 days. The only difference is what we do with them." Hilary DePiano

Do you have an expectation when a new year starts? Do you think the whole thing is pointless as its just another day, another week, another month? Does January give you a chance to slow down and ponder how you want to shape your future? Do you just want to hide away and not come out again? 

I love January. It is the month I was born so I am always excited when it arrives as it means lots of things to look forward too. I also find it relaxing. It is cold which means more time to snuggle up and spend at home and generally work is never too taxing as people are more chilled, with no pressure or big deadlines. The birth signs for January are Capricorn and Aquarius. As an Aquarian my personality traits apparently mean I am forward thinking and want to make the world a better place. I'll take that.

I have always seen January as the month for new beginnings. Like in some way, that I can start again and erase anything I wasn't so keen on in the previous year. I know that I definitely ate too much over Christmas but that doesn't matter as the scales won't be able to see last years results. My diary is blank and I can fill it with whatever I want. I feel a sense of freedom. Like I can do whatever I want. My list is empty and I have an opportunity to do anything that I set my mind to achieve.  

Do you know what you want from life?

That is a big question. And can be overwhelming if you think about it too deeply.

I don't particular like to think too far ahead, but I am a big planner and I know what I want to achieve this year. The ideas are buzzing in my head and I just need to give myself some time to settle back down to make sense of it all. I know that when I think of what I want to achieve this year it makes me feel optimistic and happy. I know I have the the beginning of a plan that will contribute to my success. Do you have some ideas? Maybe something you have always wanted to do but you have never started it? I find writing down my ideas really brings them to life. Try it. It really does work.

I have also signed up to something way out of my comfort zone. The Miracle Morning. If you know me, then you realise I am not a bounce out of bed type of person at all. I struggle with mornings and am much more of a night owl where I come to life. But I have heard great things and also really want to start the year by giving myself the time I need to get the things done in my life that are important. I did Day 1 yesterday at it was amazing. I felt liberated that I gave myself a whole hour to focus on the 6 habits that will allow me to be a better person. Silence, Affirmations, Visualisation, Exercise, Reading and Scribing.

Prepare yourself for a wonderful year head. Believe this and it will happen!

Like you, my birthday is also in January, although I am a Capricorn.
Answer to your question Do you know what you want from life? I would say that firstly would be to be a little more gentle on myself and try to take each day at a time. Since losing my love John in April 2020 I have let myself go and been so hard on myself. Ok yes I am still grieving, but if John was here right now he would be telling me to live my life.
So, as you know I had my first book published in memory of John. “A pocket full of love” a poetry book and so now my next goal is to complete my next poetry book (about my life) and complete my novel (which is based on John and myself) and also to go on and write a steamy novel too 😀. I Plan to try and get some fresh air more with some walking thrown in. Because of my mental health disorders its very difficult for me to be out of my comfort zone especially alone.
I have to take one day at a time hence why most of my life is spent behind my four walls.
I am going to try and be a little more positive and hope to try and see the light rather than continuous darkness.
Happy new year to you and hope 2022 is a good one for you.
