Hopefully you are reading this curled up at home, enjoying the warm afterglow of the holidays and looking forward to what the New Year will bring. New Year’s is often bitter sweet for me; it signals the end of the holiday season (here in North America), and a return to work (with the next break very far off in the distance). It can be overwhelming to think of all the things I want to change in the next year, and the barrage of suggestions from social media and magazines doesn’t always bring comfort.
This is a powerful list to compose for yourself...
So, may I suggest the un-resolution list? This is the list of things you did that went well last year; decisions you made, new habits you formed, self-care practices, etc. A list of the things that you enjoyed, felt right, and contributed to your wellness and wholeness last year. This is a powerful list to compose for yourself – it doesn’t have to be long (although if you give yourself a bit of time, a glass of something good and some soft music playing in the background I’ll bet your list grows longer then you thought it could). Once you have it, make a commitment to do more of those things in this New Year.
Give yourself permission to enjoy all of the potential your career and life have to offer you.
The un-resolution list is a fabulous way to support yourself going forward, because these are things you already know how to do, and you know they work. Give yourself permission to enjoy all of the potential your career and life have to offer you. Work to live, not live to work.
2020’s resource focus will be on wholeness. I’ll explore topics from building healthy boundaries to career development planning; emotional intelligence in real life, to listening to what our own bodies are trying to tell us. Essentially, putting working life needs front and center, so you can focus on actioning your un-resolution list. Along the way I’ll share valuable resources and, of course, weekly blogs allowing us to travel this path together.
I am honoured and deeply touched by having you on this journey with me.
