Monday Motivation

For most of us today is the first day back at work after a the Christmas break and after two weeks of stuffing our faces, drinking (all kinds of flavoured whiskey) and being merry we probably just feel like we need an extra week to recover.. oui ou non?

In recent years I’ve worked hard on breaking the habit of using the new year as an excuse to start something new or make significant changes in my life, and while I still stand by this there is something to be said for reflecting at the end of a year and deciding what I want out of the new year which typically results in me and so many others hitting the ground running and forgetting exactly what we had set out to do by February!
But last year I decided that maybe if I kept my resolutions really simple it would work, so I made a small mental list of all the things I wanted to achieve in 2013 which consisted of finding a job that I was passionate about and could grow in (Check), to enjoy my hometown (check), to find the positive in every negative (check), to have fun (check) and the item on the list that overrode them all was to do whatever feels good for as long as it feels good and when it doesn’t, just stop (check).

So with the New Year already underway and continuing with some of the items from my 2013 list that worked a treat I’ve added a few more for 2014 that are kind of similar to what I found below

It’s always great to set goals and resolutions but the main thing to remember is that you don’t have to wait for a new year to begin to make changes. Start small with a thought and let your thoughts become your actions… remember Rome wasn’t built in a day.

Happy New Year love bugs and have a great week.

Love Sara. xxxx
