Wow, I can’t believe it’s February! Last month seemed to last For-ever(!) yet it just zipped by, because time stands still for no one. I always have to remind myself of this when I have spent too much time procrastinating, stop too long and that time has gone.
This year I wanted to theme my month’s goals because it just makes it a bit easier to focus. Focus on what I want to do this month and also what steps I’d like to take to reach those goals. How about you? Did you set some goals last month and have barely looked at them since?
Yup, me too. But know that’s OK. Be gentle on yourself, because I know life happens and sometimes we get wrapped up in our daily lives or dramas and we can’t see a way out until we get passed it. Last month was a doozey with Mercury in retrograde, seemed like everyone was in drama queen mode!
So that’s why I think February is a great month to refocus on LOVE. Self- love, self- acceptance, self care and refilling that tank of yours so that it can fuel us for the rest of the year. It’s a short month, so why not spend it doing the things you love?
We can’t give what we don’t have and usually by just after christmas our tanks are empty and we are done. We have given the last of what we have to give and most of us spend January making plans and goals that we can’t put in place because we have nothing left for ourselves.
We are treading water.
So it’s a new month. It’s a new day. Let’s spark that fire and let’s get that fuel truck over here!
What Floats Your Boat?
Grab your journal or a notebook and some colouring pens or pencils and find yourself a quiet spot today. Try to take fifteen to twenty minutes and just start to write down all the things that you Love.
Don’t edit, don’t judge, don’t think like an adult even, just start writing down all the things that you love doing, going, being and love to be given!
My list contains clothes and shoes I saw out shopping, flowers and trips, going to the movies and even extra coaching calls. If your mind is blank right now and you are sitting thinking what do I want and getting nothing, you are over-thinking this.
Take three slow, deep breaths and now just start writing down what you love. Start with maybe your favourite colours, crystals, flowers. Soon you will find as your mind understands what you are looking for you will have a whole page of things you love!
Next step; pick two things you are going to give yourself this week. Maybe it’s a manicure or a walk in the park. It might be some new lipstick or set aside time to go to a yoga or meditation class. Choose things that make you feel excited, happy and make you smile. Don’t let that voice in your head tell you that money is tight or that you aren’t worth it. Your ego is still in January and now we are in the month of ME!
Write down in your diary your two chosen gifts to yourself and when you are going to do them. This is setting an appointment for some Me-time and it is as important as spending time with anyone else. This is for your soul and your heart. By scheduling this you are making a promise to yourself that you can give to yourself in equal measure as you give to other people in your life and You are important enough.
This is what we are going to do for the next four weeks. Each week we will pick two things that ignites our fun side, makes us want to sing or feel like a school girl and do it, follow through.
Let’s do this month of Love!
Much Love & Happyness
