New Year New You

Read more on the controversy and take your next step to a new you here…

I have heard lost of opposing opinions related to the phrase new year new you or new you new year. While I completely understand someone saying that a new year doesn’t make a new you I think they are missing the point a bit.

Whether I am telling myself a New Year, New You or whether I am telling my clients, it is not meant to sound like this instant transformation that means you will be a different person.

What it means is that you…

Commit to being better than you were before.

Every year, I get my single candle in handle and take a picture. It’s a prayer I say every year at midnight to recommit to a new year full of things I hesitated to do, was afraid to do, and neglected to do for whatever reason (maybe I forgot). The point is, I make a renewed commitment to myself that I will be better without apology. And I will do better and stretch myself towards my vision.

So it’s not about magically becoming another person. It’s about deciding that despite all that happened in the previous year that I will get back up and try again to be my best self, the best version of myself.

So I will leave you with this. Who do you want to be at the end of this year? Who will you call yourself? What do you commit to being?
