Well, it’s a little later than usual but this has been a festive season that has been quite different from the last few, in that I have been on the go since Christmas Eve and this is the first day I have been able to sit down to attack my "to do" list!
Anyway, as in previous years I have adopted a "Theme" for 2018. Just to refresh your memory, these are not about specific objectives or tasks, as resolutions are, but rather a way of being.
So, 2018 is to be a FAB year!
This stands for;
Finances (manage and review);
Activities (covering my physical health and socialising); and
Business (promoting and expanding its base and my knowledge).
Previous years "themes" were:
2014 "Productive and Creative", both of which I adopted when I went about lots of my activities.
2015 Resolution: Purpose: Direction. As I searched for a new home and lifestyle, I think these words became my mantra to keep me going when things got tough or I felt despondent. They also covered lots of other things in my life too.
2016 ACE: Accept; Consolidate; Enjoy.
Accept covers, physical, emotional and spiritual and not just in relation to me, but that of others, relatives, friends, strangers, clients etc.
Consolidate is about putting down my roots and building on everything I have worked hard to establish over the last few years.
Enjoy speaks for itself
As 2017 approached it was really interesting to see how successful I was in incorporating ACE into my life in 2016. It was definitely a challenging year in many ways and ACE certainly kept me focussed!
2017 was FLCR
F is for any Failure and Disappointments - learn from them then let them go!
L was Look Forward - keep my head up, look to the horizon and not at my feet.
C was Change - know that the only certainty in life is it WILL change.
R was Revel - in any successes, and celebrate the joys in my life.
I hope this post wasn't too long for you all and it gives you ideas to shape and keep focussed when "life" gets challenging. My Hypnotherapy is useful in helping me to relax and focus on what I need to do in my life, this compliments it. It works for me!!!
