When Visions of Sugarplums Fade



So, here we are on the cusp of a New Year.  The visions of sugarplums dancing in our heads are starting to fade and we are starting to look forward to what’s next.

Well?  What’s next?  This would seem to be the perfect time of year to ask this question as New Year’s resolutions are typically starting to be formed (for those of you who make them) around this time.

What do you want to be different? What do you want more/less of?  Or,  are you feeling stuck and unmotivated? Been there, done that, why even bother?  So much to think about.

I personally do not subscribe to the New Year’s resolution however I had the opportunity to listen to a meditation this morning and it made me think a bit.  It did not prompt me to figure out what I need to “do”.  It was more, what/who do I want to “be”?

For me it was grateful, to continue to be grateful for the simple things in life, the things that really matter.  Specifically my husband and children and the day to day challenges that come up. Grateful for the continuing opportunity to stretch my wings as a coach.  Truly feeling like I am making a difference by partnering with others to find what’s next for them.  I had no idea when I embarked on my journey close to two years ago that I would find so much fulfillment helping others discover theirs.  So, yes, if you want to call it a “resolution” my resolution is to continue to be grateful and look for more opportunities in my day to savour what is, right here, right now.

Wishing you all the very best as we embark on another fresh year.  A blank page to begin again, if that is what you need or another blank page to continue to build on what you have already created in this previous year.  Whatever it is, know that you have choices to make this year whatever you want it to be…you really do.
