Old year lessons for a happier new you.

• • • 

It’s New Year time again, a time for that lovely reflective vibe that seems to hit as soon as Christmas is over.

I love this time of year – it seems to demand a welcome pause in the busy mayhem of life, as we transition from one year to the next.

I’m a big fan of reviewing and recalibrating, and this phase is the perfect time to look back over the previous year – for successes to celebrate and lessons to learn.

Doing this can help us face the shiny new year before us with more confidence, clarity and excitement – 3 things that will supercharge our success and happiness in the future.


And if you can also review the last year with an attitude of gratitude – counting all the blessings (even the ones in disguise) – you’ll be rewarded with more peace, understanding and life-enhancing optimism for the year ahead.

So, if you haven’t already, I hope you’ll join me in taking some time to acknowledge your gifts, achievements and challenges over the last year.

Indulge in a beneficial spell of healthy and productive reminiscing, as well as some big dreaming and scheming for happy times ahead.

Here’s to the trials that shape us and make us who are.

And to the victories that show us glimpses of who we can be.

Wishing you so much happiness and success in the New Year – and beyond.
