My mantra for heading into 2017 –

2017 is my bitch.

OK, OK, it’s a glorified way of saying I’ve got resolutions.  AKA – Real Solutions.  Cuz these are the things that are going to add value to my life, and provide solutions to those things that Negative Nancy tends to run her mouth about (see this blog post for more about the negative committee in our heads)


Here’s my Real Solutions list:

Build a vision board (if you see it, you can be it)

Simplify my living space (throw out the junk)

Maintain higher standards for my body (eat better and move more)

Learn from the lessons now vs putting them off (you gotta feel it to heal it)

Meet or exceed my business goals


I know it takes a system and a mentor to meet goals – I’ve got a great coach, a support system, and I’m working on my calendar/time system to be sure I reach all the goals I’ve put down.  And I’m gonna have it all in place before 2017 says “whazzzup”.

Is it going to get hard? YES. It always does.

That’s not all though –

I’m gonna have to DO what I said I was gonna do!!!  

Getting it all set up – that’s the easy part – Implementation is where I usually fall off the wagon…  But knowing – that’s the first step to fixing 🙂

You can’t get a different result from doing what you’ve always done.

Do you see patterns in your life?  Are there lessons that keep coming up for you?

Maybe it’s relationships that aren’t healthy?

Maybe it’s weight fluctuations? (That’s mine!!)

Maybe it’s finding yourself just plain cranky and being mean mommy all the dang time?

Maybe it’s wanting very much to smuffocate the hubby while he snores next to you and you’re up worried about where the money for the mortgage/electric/braces/food is going to come from?

The lessons will keep showing up until you learn them.


What are your lessons trying to teach you?

I can promise that taking better care of yourself and meeting your own needs is one of them.  When we take care of ourselves, everything else tends to fall into place.

I used to hate that saying “You won’t get more than you can handle” – It seriously made me want to throat punch someone… But alas, it’s TRUE.  Everything that you’ve been thru thus far – you’ve handled it.  Sometimes like a boss, sometimes like a baby.  But you’ve handled it – you’ve made it thru and now – on to the next task.

Here’s to making 2017 the Best. Year. Ever.  (And our Bitch!) 🙂
