Approach the New Year with an open mind

The new year is coming which means it’s time to make new plans.  It’s time to move forward.  It’s time to leave 2014 in the past.  The door of possibilities swings open again, so don’t be close minded!  Take the time to explore new avenues of in life.  Try something that you never thought you would do.  Even if you don’t like or love it, at least you tried it!


This is the time to start anew.  The best piece of advice I can give to you is to set goals and do everything in your power to achieve those goals. No matter the size of the goals, set them, go after them and celebrate all the big and little milestones in between.  It’s truly about the journey and not always about the prize.

This is the time to leave the negative behind.  Things happen.  Life isn’t always fun or go the way we plan. With the new year, comes a change to leave the negativity in the past so that you can move forward in a positive future.

This is the time to face your insecurities head on.  Embrace those pesky things and turn your insecurity into a source of power and motivation to be something better.  Insecurity will weigh us down.  It clouds our thoughts.  It makes the possible seem impossible. Insecurities are just doors we have closed for ourselves.

2015 is going to be the year to live in the joyous moments.  The past month, I’ve let others steal my joy.  I didn’t celebrate my accomplishments because of what others may have said.  I let those things creep into my head and heart and I missed moments that should have been truly happy.  I will not let that happen to me.

Celebrate life and all that is in it.  When things don’t go your way, deal with the situation by finding a positive solution to the problem.  Don’t overthink or overanalyze to the point of destruction.  Accept it and use it as learning moment to move forward.

Life is what you make of it.  Open you heart and mind to the possibilities of the new year.  I look forward to traveling through the journey with you.
