WPC – New Horizon

Get the jump on your New Year’s resolutions in this week’s photo challenge.

“One of the most tragic things I know about human nature is that all of us tend to put off living. We are all dreaming of some magical rose garden over the horizon instead of enjoying the roses that are blooming outside our windows today.” ~ Dale Carnegie ~

Not roses as mentioned in Dale Carnegie’s quote above, my photo for this week’s challenge are magical magnolia blossoms. Although I love to travel, I don’t need to travel from home to enjoy life. It seems whether it is a shadow on the wall, curtains dancing in the breeze, enjoying a coffee on the front porch, sitting with a child or by myself in the swing hanging from the tree, or watching birds entertaining themselves – there is always something to be grateful for. New horizons can be enjoyed through learning.

The quote from Dale Carnegie is quite appropriate for my New Year’s Resolution to become a certified Dale Carnegie instructor in 2017. I plan to live life to the fullest in 2017 as every other year past and look forward to living in the moment while taking steps to reach more life fulfilling goals. This will include laughing and dancing more, daily writing, exercise, healthy eating, learning new photography techniques, guiding clients along their path, living mindfully, daily meditations, participating in learning retreats, meeting new healers and growing in a community of wellness advocates to name a few. As always, spending quality time with my family and watching my grandchildren grow and learn will be a major part of 2017.

What are your goals for 2017? Do you spend time writing down your dreams, goals, desires and take steps to reach them?

Taking Small Steps to Reach Goals in 2015

This is how I feel about 2015!!

Feeling Great!!

Feeling Great!!

So excited about the steps I have taken thus far to attract my dreams in 2015. Let me share a little with you:

  • Joined the gym right down the road from my house, which is also on my way home
  • Walked four out of five days
  • Cleared the holiday junk food out of the cabinets and refrigerator
  • Purchased healthy food at the grocery store and have been preparing healthy meals and smoothies
  • Bring my own lunch, bottle of water, and coffee/tea to work with me
  • Prepared a budget for 2015 with a goal to pay off some debt – already paid off a department store charge card
  • Cleaned up the holiday decorations and all of the rooms in my home – now I have a writing area plus a create area so I have a place to set up my sewing machine
  • Meditated four times in the past five days
  • Had one person contact me out of the blue today to hire me as her life coach – we start this Sunday!
  • Prepared my Vision Board with my niece
  • Reached out to Catholic Charities program to volunteer as a life coach for at-risk youth
  • Practiced taking pictures on my new camera while walking in the preserve behind my home
  • Tonight I finished my DVD of old movies with iMemories and ordered one for myself and one for each of my three children.

Phew! It is only January 5th and I have been very busy taking the steps toward reaching my goals. Very excited about my upcoming writing course with UCLA that starts in two weeks and my Intermediary Therapeutic Touch classes that start in March.

You can really accomplish quite a bit working a full-time if you don’t sit in front of the television or constantly text. I love technology but use it to my advantage to reach my goals. Stopping to take in a movie, especially a comedy can be very good for you. Reading a book instead of sitting in front of the television can be beneficial as well. I had the cable turned off over a year ago and have never missed it. Just think how much money is saved when the cable is cancelled – enough for you to take a class, join a gym, or maybe take a mini-vacation. Just something to think about. What about spending more time with your children or friends playing games, hiking, dancing. The list is never ending.

What are your plans for 2015? If you don’t have a plan, haven’t written down what you want to attract, or are unsure please contact me and let’s see if I can provide guidance to help you reach your goals.

Love and Light,
