Being the start of 2018, a brand new year, a fresh start, a time to recompose and recreate yourself a new, this is the perfect time to set your intentions for what you would like to create and see manifest in the year ahead.
Lets be honest, its really easy to get caught up in the whole ‘goal setting/new years resolution’ thing… Don’t get me wrong, setting goals and having a clear vision of the future is super important but the pressures we place on ourselves and the overwhelm this can create in the body doesn’t have to go along with it.
Instead, we invite you to consider the idea of just setting one single goal this year – To simply be more kind. That is all. Let 2018 be your kindest year yet!
You will find that this alone will often lead the way and open the doors necessary for all your other goals to be realized anyway. For example; you might want to get fit, eat healthy, lose weight, advance in your career, travel overseas etc. If you think about it, there is a common theme with all of those things: They all start with being kind to yourself first.
Think about it: Eating and exercising to nourish and fuel your body temple – Kindness towards yourself.
Advancing in your career means less financial strain, more opportunities etc. – Kindness towards yourself.
Booking that overseas holiday you have been dreaming about – Kindness towards yourself.
Really, at the core of all of your desires and wants and dreams is the ultimate desire to experience more joy. You want a fitter, healthier body because you will FEEL better for it; you want the new job because of the feeling it will give you; you want the overseas holiday because of the joy it will bring.
So instead of getting all caught up in making long lists of things you need to do, things you need to change, ways you need to improve.. Ask yourself what can I do in this moment to FEEL better.
Your answer 99.99% of the time is be more kind.
Kindness will help you find that feeling.
Be Kind to you this year. Remember you cannot serve the world if you do not first serve yourself.
So our message to you at the start of this glorious new year that is 2018 is simple.
BE MORE KIND. Then watch the ripple of that intention spread out in to every other area of your life that you want to improve.
Happy New Year Kind Human!!!
