Simple Ways To Have An Amazing 2013
Happy New Year!
I am so excited to be starting a brand new year, and I've been thinking a lot about how to create the most amazing year ever in 2013! If you're on board to make the this the best year of your life, I've got some simple tips that just might help you transform the past into something beautiful for the future while taking advantage of ever opportunity and blessing along the way.
Release With Gratitude
The best way to take in all the wisdom from the past - and to ensure that only the good things follow you - is to take some time to consciously release the past and express gratitude for it. Making a list of the most noteable things that happened in your life in 2012 and really trying to see the good and the meaning they had for your life is a powerful experience. The good, the bad, and the neutral should all be looked at equally. Often times it's the hard things that give us the most to be grateful for in the end. Taje time to review, get a new perspective, and then let 2012 become part of your past as you free yourself to a limitless future!
Make S.M.A.R.T. Goals
Taking time to actually write out a list of things you'd like to accomplish, experience, and conquer in 2013 can be a very moving experience. Let yourself dream freely, but consider using the S.M.A.R.T. technique when listing things out: Your goals should be Simple, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic, and True for you.
The best way to transform your year into something magical is to make it a point to give freely. Choose a topic, charity, or energy for each of the 12 months ahead and go out of tyour way to give that month. You may choose to donate clothing to a women's shelter in January, give money to an animal rescue charity in February, donate time to a special care home in March, and so on. Giving is not limited to money or items - so don't hesitate to make your time, presence, and energy the gift you give all year!
Here's to an amazing 2013 for us all!
