Hello Wonderful You,

In a previous blog I introduced you to a yearly ritual that has made a HUMONGOUS difference in my life, how to release and bless the passing year: Goodbye 2017! A powerful ritual for creating a healthy year part 1.

Today I would like to invite you to experience another ritual, one that will help you manifest and create the year and the life of your dreams: Make a list of 100 things you want to do in 2018! This ritual is much more affective than making New Year resolutions that don’t “stick”.

Here’s why.

We all have so many things we want, so many changes we want to make, it can get overwhelming and we can feel discouraged when things don’t happen fast enough, or the way we want them to happen. But here’s a little secret: it does not matter where you start. It only matters that you start somewhere and make a positive movement in ANY area of your life.

If eating healthy has been a huge struggle for you, don’t start there, start somewhere that’s easier. Maybe do a little yoga every day. Or schedule monthly massages. Or start a self-appreciating journal. Anythings you do that makes you feel good about yourself and your life, will help you to have a better relationship with food and will help you to make progress in EVERY area of your life.

Here’s how this list works; think about different areas of your life and what you would like to do in each area, make your list personal, choose things that are near and dear to your heart, choose things that will bring you joy, fulfillment and pride in yourself. Choose big things and small. Include important things and silly things. It’s your list, make it about you.

Another secret, this list will come true ONLY IF you will make it a living thing. Don’t just write it and forget it. Print it! Laminate it! Hang it where you can see it often! Write it in your planner! And most importantly visit it every month to check things off as you do them and reconnect with the things you still want to do.

I am including a sample list to inspire you and get your juices flowing, feel free to “steal” some of those ideas and create some of your own.
This ritual has helped me to create so much magic in my life and I know it will do the same for you.
