Was 2017 a good year for the roses?
As 2017 draws to a close, I wonder how it was for you?
Do you feel you’ve moved forward with your life? Are you one, or many steps closer to being how and where you want to be? Are you proud of what you have achieved?
Or maybe you are ready to kiss goodbye to 2017 and take the view that it was just a good year for the roses (it’s the title of an old Elvis Costello track in case you are wondering!).
However the year has been, I would encourage you to take some time to bring it to a symbolic close. Really focus on releasing the emotions of anything or anyone you have needed to say goodbye to, to let go or whatever hasn’t worked for you … this is super important as you don’t really want to be taking negative energy through into the New Year.
You can release this by writing (always destroy the letter if it’s full of negative emotion), doing some EFT (tapping), imagining putting everything into a balloon and letting it go or any other kind of visualisation or practical technique that works for you. You may need to find space for forgiveness – both for yourself and others – this can be really hard but I promise that you will be the biggest winner!
Then take some time to think about what you have achieved and celebrate all your wins, however big and small. Again, write them down, remember how good they made you feel and remind yourself of exactly what you are capable of. And I bet it is more than you might initially think.
Everything that has happened this year has helped shape you for the new beginnings of 2018. Treasure the learnings and gain what you can from them. Savour the good memories, let go of the not so good. Remember, you ARE an amazing woman!

Wishing you happiness, peace and love for 2018,
