The power of New Years is because it is a community/society conversation that the beginning of the year is the opportunity and experience to create. By January 2 we think we know how our future will unfold. Guess what? We don’t – your future is actually unwritten. Your future has not happened yet. And if you drag the familiar pain from the past with you, you can write your future to look like your past. It’s up to you.

Or…. You can declare your fresh restart any day or time of the year. New Years is an artificial restart date for your life. It’s perfect right now because everyone is talking about it so you can ride the power of the community conversations.

New Years is a very powerful time to make a break from the past and create a new present and future that pulls you forward.

To those of you who had a hard 2018 or just didn’t accomplish everything you wanted, you really can stop holding on to your failures, disappointments, resentment of others and anything else that cuts you off from the love, inspiration, creativity, joy and abundance that you want and deserve.

What do you want? What does your heart want? Stop and think about this.

Then pay attention to the internal conversations that arise that will sabotage what your heart wants. For example, if you want more intimacy

with your partner or to meet a wonderful man who could be your life partner, when you start to imagine that new future, you’ll hear your inner critic judging your dream, saying, for example, one or more of the following: Nothing will change. Who are you kidding thinking that is possible? He or she won’t change. You don’t deserve love. Who is going to love you? You had your chance and you blew it. You’d have love IF … you were thinner, or smarter, more lovable, knew how to manage money or ….

UGH! (I could go on for hours. Fill in the familiar conversations your inner critic tells you.)

Most of the time our inner critic is talking to us but we don’t hear it as a critic. It just sounds like a true thought. It’s not true. Your future is unwritten unless you write it with the past.

Are you willing to rewrite the conversations that are not aligned with your dream results?

Are you willing to forgive others or yourself? Let go of disappointments?

“When I was walking out the gate to my freedom, I knew if I didn’t leave behind my bitterness and hatred, I’d still be in prison.” ~ Nelson Mandela.

Are you willing to open your heart to accept the love that is already in your life instead of rejecting it because it doesn’t look the way you want?

Fill in the blank with whatever your heart wants… “I am willing to explore ____________?”

If you are willing, then let’s have a conversation and explore how you can transform your experience of life and love right now. Apply to speak to me (this shows me you are serious about taking on your life) and discover what’s possible. Don’t let your resignation stop you.

Most of us like familiar – even if it’s boring and we don’t have what we want, at least we know we can survive it. Take a look at your life. Where are you holding on to the familiar? Are you willing to let go of the familiar? You don’t have to know HOW to let go, only that you want to! Empower what your heart wants for the future not your fear and resignation from the past.

If you are willing to let go of bringing your old, familiar thinking, feelings, speaking, and acting to your new year, then I can guide you to not just let go of the familiar but how to actually create and practice new thinking, feelings, speaking and acting so you can have a new future.

Your real “New Year” starts when you say “YES, I am willing!”
