Write it Down, Make it Happen used to be an annual New Year’s post based on the book by the same name. I hate looking back and always want to keep moving forward but I read the 2015 blog post and I’m embarrassed to say that a lot of those things did not get accomplished. […]

Your Year

01 . 01 . 18

Every January 1st, I post an inspiring quote or mantra on Instagram. This one seemed to really resonate with my followers. People may scoff at inspirational quotes on the internet but sometimes they strike a chord and make you realize you need or want to make a change. That’s true of New Year’s Day in […]

Long time readers know that I prefer to the focus on the positive things that I want to manifest in the New Year instead of the negative habits I wish to break.  The book Write It Down, Make It Happen: Knowing What You Want And Getting It is my inspiration. It’s always fun to go back and […]

Year of the Horse

01 . 31 . 14

If you didn’t stick with your New Year’s resolutions, you get a second chance with the start of the Chinese New Year today. According to astrologer Susie Cox, 2014 the auspicious Year of the Wood Horse is typically seen as fortunate year that brings good luck and unexpected opportunities.  “This year will bring sudden victories, […]

While 2013 wasn’t the worst year ever, it certainly was not my favorite.  I felt out of sorts and adrift for most of it. I also feel like I didn’t really accomplish anything of note.  As one of my wise friends pointed out, some years are about planting the seeds to be harvested later.  It’s […]

Happy New Year!

12 . 31 . 13

Ring out the old, ring in the new, Ring, happy bells, across the snow: The year is going, let him go; Ring out the false, ring in the true. – Alfred, Lord Tennyson, 1850 Wishing you all a safe and Happy New Year’s Eve! I’ll be back on New Year’s Day with my annual “Write […]

If you are a long time reader, then you will know my love of the book Write It Down, Make It Happen.  Instead of making New Year’s resolutions that just get broken a few weeks later, why not outline your goals for the year. I just went back and reread my New Year, New Goals post […]

10 Secrets to Success

12 . 27 . 11

My friend Martha posted this list of 10 Secrets to Success on her tumblr last week.  Her father left it on her dresser for her when she came home for the holidays. As we prepare for the New Year, I think it’s an excellent list to get us off on the right foot and turns […]

New Year, New Goals!

01 . 02 . 11

I usually write up my goals for the new year on New Year’s Day but this year I decided to take some time to myself yesterday.  If you’re a long time reader, then you know that I don’t make resolutions.  Instead, I take my cue from Write It Down, Make It Happen, and write down what I want to happen […]

Attitude of Gratitude

11 . 25 . 10

The best part of Thanksgiving is that it has traditionally been a non-commercial holiday.  Well, until stores decided to open this year but I digress.  Thanksgiving is a day when you don’t have to do anything but spend time eating and watching the parade and football with those we care about.  It is always nice […]

New Year, New You!

01 . 01 . 10

If you fall asleep in the bathtub on New Year’s Eve, this is probably how you will feel in the morning! As we begin this New Year, I am reminded of a quote from Anne of Green Gables, “Tomorrow is a new day with no mistakes in it yet.” But in this case, we have […]
