Happy New Year! How ya doin' with those resolutions so
far? There is so much hype and pressure around making huge life changes and setting goals starting January 1st that it's
easy to feel utterly defeated when we don't succeed that first week, and therefore
just give up. Yes, it is the beginning of a new calendar year, and there are
no other holidays for a while, so the world likes to make this time far more
momentous than I believe it deserves. After an intense holiday period of excess
and socialization, it is unrealistic for you to turn on a dime and start things
completely fresh, especially if they are habits that you've had for 20 or 30
years! Change and growth do not happen
As we go through our lives there are various cycles that affect
us, with many opportunities for new beginnings that occur in more authentic ways, and
are further in line with where we are at in life at any given moment.
January is a particularly good time though to review the past year and
to THINK about and understand the changes you want to make going forward - really get
reflective and go inward to see what is out of balance, what direction you want
to be going in and what small adjustments you want to make in your daily life
to be more fulfilled. True change can
only happen after you've made an internal shift, and the inner work that you
do is just as valuable as the external results you desire.
Nature and the planets are
more in tune with our existence and can help guide us as well; the New and Full Moons and Eclipses throughout
the year, the Lunar New Year (this year on Feb. 14th); the seasons (i.e. Spring and Autumnal
Equinoxes), our individual birthday, which is our own personal New
Year, and the
sunrise each and every day are all good examples. The important thing to remember is that life
is a process. Be true to who you are and
take one day at a time knowing what is best for you and your goals - and don't
beat yourself up if you don't make this first week or month the picture of perfection you envisioned on Dec. 31st. Setting a timeline and internal clock that is in harmony with YOU will be much more
effective - and that will be something to celebrate at any time of the year!

months of researching the job market, I became overly consumed with endless
data and foggy ideas. Kristina helped me see that my resume reflected this
uncertainty and it was working against me. In just a half hour we defined

now look forward to communicating - on paper and verbally - a clear message
