Farewell 2017!

What an… interesting year it has been! Twelve months ago on this day I could not have even dreamed of what was to come. Not in a million years. But then, that seems to be the case for me almost every year! I actually gave up owning a wall calendar a few years ago, because I was fed up of hanging it up in one place in January, and seeing it hung in a totally different home/location/country by December!

The nomadic lifestyle I have been living for the last ten years is something I very much wanted back then. I actually wrote in my diary that I didn’t want to be stuck in any one place for too long, I wanted to move about, travel, and meet lots of people. Well, I certainly got that! I have mostly lived out of a suitcase or my car for the last ten years, and I have decided that it’s time to manifest a more stable foundation for myself, so that I can build the life I really want. Because as fun as it has been, the nomadic life is not something I want to continue.

So what are you leaving behind in 2017? What are you creating anew in 2018? Tonight, my friend Clare (of Artemis Rising) and I are going to release the past stuff, and set new intentions (not resolutions, those things are pants) for the coming year and many years to come. I think the time has come to make a longer term plan than just the next 6 or 12 months. It’s time to look at where I would like to be in 5 years, or even, gulp, 10 years.

Because as the saying goes, if we don’t know where we’re going, how will we know when we get there?

I hope you have a wonderful New Years’, and set some brilliant and challenging intentions for the coming year. It’s time to fly!

 

One of my intentions for the coming year is to revive this blog, posting more often, and making it more interactive. I would like to do more interviews and invite other people to guest post too. Two years ago, I posted that I had just reached 40k all time views, and as of yesterday, I just crossed the 80k mark! I am so blown away by the number of people who have visited my blog, from over 170 countries! So I feel it is time to honour all my amazing readers and put more time and effort into this. So if you have any topics you’d like me to cover, please do comment!

I’m sure you believe me, but here’s the proof!

Much love to you, I’ll see you in the New Year!

What do you really want?

I hope you have had a happy and fun festive season, and have been with friends and loved ones, eaten good food and been treated to some new things. Maybe you’re starting to look to the New Year, and beyond what you’ve got planned for New Years’ Eve, and are wondering what 2018 will bring.

I can tell you exactly what it will bring. And no, not because I have a crystal ball. (Although, I do have one!)

2018 will bring you exactly what you ask of it. But first, you need to ask.

And to ask, you need to actually know what you want. This time last year, there were many things I wrote down that I wanted to achieve, receive and experience. And I have to say, most have happened. Even the most improbable ones. You might just read this and write it of as Law of Attraction nonsense. But I’m not talking about just making a request and then sitting back and waiting for it to land in your lap. I’m talking about getting really clear on what it is you want, so that not only can you be clear in your requests to the Universe and to others, but you will also know what you are moving towards. You will be able to take action that will get you closer to where you wish to be.

Some things may happen with little work or input from you, and other things will require you put in the time, energy and money to make them happen. But knowing exactly what it is you are working towards is the most important step.

So I will ask again, what do you really want? What is your unicorn? If you feel your goals are huge, and others might not understand them, be sure to keep them just for yourself. After all, nobody needs to know where you are going or what you are creating but you. When you know your desires – write them down. Find images of them. Make a video or yourself talking about them. Do something that shows your commitment to making them happen.

One of my unicorns in 2018 is to get back to blogging more regularly. I fell out of the habit in 2017, and I have missed it. To be able write these posts is a joy of mine, and I plan to bring as much joy into my life in the New Year as possible. So as well as figuring out what you really want, please do let me know if there are any particular posts you would like to see from me too. My plan is to write two blog posts a month, more, if the inspiration begins to flow as it has before. Thank you for reading my blog and supporting it, I really appreciate you, as you are why I continue to do it!
