I LOVE this day because we get to start fresh! A brand new year to make it what we want it to be. Anything is possible for you, your life, your relationships. Right now 2017 is a blank page.

The question is – what do you want to create?

For many, 2016 has been a bit of a bumpy ride. I’ve been saddened by the number of people I heard that couldn’t wait for it to end. I confess, I am one of them. As our family went through some huge dips in the road of life, we needed to pull together and dust it off.  We all have tragedy and hard times, everyone, every day; no one is immune.  But life truly is what we make it. That old adage, “When Life Hands You Lemons, Make Lemonade” can feel like we should be downing in the stuff.

But today is the start of a new year, and I hope for nothing more than for this to be the year you turn your mindset around and CHOOSE what your year is going to be, how your relationships with others are going to be and how you are going to deal with the good, the bad and the down right crappy….because it will all happen, but we have a choice of how we choose to see it and deal with it!

So, what do you want to YOUR 2017 to be like?

If you are done messing around with an average life, and ho hum relationships, and are ready resurrect some passion and pump it up in 2017 you might want to come join my Back From the Brink group coaching program or even be a private client.

My wish for you this year is that it be remembered as the year you decided to spark up your life. Relationships are the best place to begin. Your relationship with self, your partner, your children.

Here’s A Place to Start

What are you willing to do to create the relationships you want?

Think about your relationship with yourself. Are you emotionally fit? Are you pushing through your limiting beliefs so that you can live a life of passion and on purpose? If not, it might be time for a tune-up.

Think about your relationship with your partner. Think back to be beginning of that relationship. You were able to do whatever it took to make that person happy. What are you willing to do now? Be honest. What can you do to make them feel loved and seen?

Think about your relationship with your children. Are you making your connection with your child your highest priority? What grade would you give yourself on the quality of the time you spend with your child daily? What do you need to do to be earning a consistent “A”?

Do what you did at the beginning of the relationship and there won’t be a bad ending.
