Happy New Year! I just got back from 2-week break filled with lots of journaling, much-needed rest and quality time with loved ones. I hope you were able to find some time and space to fill up your cup, too.
I’m feeling so inspired about the year ahead and everything it has in store for us both. I’ve even got an exciting challenge to help us kick things off (more on that later in the blog)!
Whether you’ve joined me for Crazy Sexy You, the Crazy Sexy Reset, one of my #CrazySexyGreenDrinks challenges or have been following along here on the blog, you know how I feel about progress over perfection.
I’m a firm believer that small steps lead to lasting change. Why? Because it works.
Meaningful shifts—in our diet, our mindset, our relationships, our lives—don’t happen overnight. The promise and excitement that come with dreaming up big, beautiful goals can be intoxicating. But at some point, we’ve gotta take that first step.
And this time of year, it’s especially important to keep those small steps in focus.
You’re probably hearing, reading or thinking (or all of the above!) a lot about new year’s resolutions these days. I hope you’ve got some plans in mind that fill you with joy. You deserve a life overflowing with possibilities.
Now that the new year is here and it’s time to move from dreaming to doing (aka, gettin’ down to business!), those exhilarating resolutions might lose a bit of their magic. Trust me, I’ve been there. Luckily, that’s where the small steps I’m always talkin’ about come in!
Every shift you make in life (big and bold, slow and steady—it all counts) starts with a decision. You make a decision about something you want to achieve or create, then you put one foot in front of the other. Start where you are and just begin.
There’s something beautiful about those baby steps, no matter how teeny tiny they are. And I think it’s about time we gave them the attention they deserve.
So, as 2019 sets in, I’ve got a proposal for you: Instead of resolving for the whole year ahead, let’s resolve for today.
I’m calling it the resolution revolution!
That’s not to say you shouldn’t dedicate brain space to dreamin’ up yummy plans for your future (you absolutely should!), but it is time for those dreams to step aside and share the limelight with today’s happiness.
Not your happiness next month or next year—your happiness now.
I’m talking about finding simple ways to nourish and care for yourself today. About breaking your goals down into simple, doable actions that brighten rather than dim your shine. You might be surprised what’s possible when you put the next 365 days aside and zero in on loving yourself in this very moment.
Not sure where to start?
