Merry Christmas and a _______ New Year!

Merry Christmas and a _______ New Year!

First and foremost I want to take this moment to wish you a Merry Christmas from the bottom of my heart!

I am grateful for the relationship we have because of Jesus.

I imagine you are wondering why I put: “________ New Year!” in the subject line?

The reason is, I would like you to consider giving yourself a unique gift this holiday season.

A gift that requires vulnerability.

What do you really desire your New Year to be like?

Of course there will always be challenges, yet what type of overall theme do you desire for 2017?

What type of words come to mind to describe your year ahead. Prosperity? Healthy? Family? Benevolent?
Debt Free? Abundance? Influential? Clarity of Purpose? Author? Etc. Ask God to stimulate your thoughts…..fresh things. Try to avoid generalization like “more of God and less of me” or “His thoughts and not my thoughts”…..I encourage you to be vulnerable and connect with your heart.

Take some time to write these down on a piece of paper or even create a Dream Board.  CLICK HERE for ideas about a Dream Board or Google it on your own.

Dream Board Example

Dream Board Example

Make sure you put your Dream Board somewhere that you can see everyday. Speak the words, touch the dream board, meditate on what is there and take steps everyday to move in the direction of your desires and dreams.

I would also like to challenge you to ask others about their desires and dreams for 2017. Listen to them. They may even ask you about your dreams and desires! If they don’t that is okay too….. 🙂 People are people and not all have developed a skill of listening. As you listen to others, things in you will percolate further and bring increased clarity.

If you need further assistance or a coach to bring clarity in your life, please connect with Kristen Olynick at  Kristen has helped and is assisting many others as a Certified Life Coach and Whole Brain Practitioner.

Once again, I really encourage you to give yourself the gift indicated above this Christmas break and let the overflow of your gift pour into the lives of others!

Blessings and love,
