Why I’m saying a big fat ‘NO’ to resolutions this year

Why I’m saying a big fat ‘NO’ to resolutions this year

Jan 17

11th January 2017


At this time of year, I usually feel a renewed sense of excitement and enthusiasm.  It’s a fresh start with many new days to do amazing things.

But this year …. I’m bloody tired.

2016 was one of the biggest years of my life.

From the outside it may not have seemed like too much happened … although having a baby is still a pretty big deal *wink wink*



What I mean is…

I hurt and healed and changed and grew so much as a person last year.  The big stuff happened on the inside.

When I took my leap of faith many years ago (quit my corporate job, started studying Kinesiology) I consciously chose to work on myself every day.

This meant being open to who I was, how I felt, to learn my lessons, to continue to grow as a person, to back myself and chase after my deepest dreams and desires.

I LOVE getting to experience these shifts …. BUT healing takes time and the whole hurt, heal, grow cycle has tuckered this little Mumma out.

When I connect to my intuition, right now it’s telling me that I’m still in 2016.

I’m still finishing off projects.  I’m still healing emotionally and physically. I don’t have the energy or enthusiasm to start diving in to the excitement of 2017.

And you know what … that’s perfectly fine.

It doesn’t mean I’m going to miss out.  It doesn’t mean there is something wrong with me.  It doesn’t mean it’s going to be like this forever.

I honour myself.

I honour how I’m feeling and I choose to give myself the space I need to let go of one of the most intense years of my life.

I do this lovingly.  I do it with gratitude.  

And I do it with trust that while I’m healing ~ incredible things are building in the background and awaiting my arrival in February.



So beautiful, if you’re feeling the same ~

Don’t feel pressured to set new 2017 goals or to start new resolutions.  Give yourself the time and space you need to really release 2016.

I’ll see you on the other side of this and we can have a big old laugh and hug about it.

Big love,
