Once each month, we have a new moon. The new moon brings forth new energy, and is the perfect time to start fresh and give your goals a little boost.
This is a great day to review what’s going on in our lives, identify what’s working and what isn’t, and set some intentions for the upcoming months.
This might also involve letting some things go.
Did you know that your physical space mirrors your emotional space? It’s true, and the same goes for digital files. When you’re steeped in clutter, your mind feels cluttered too, and vice versa. When I feel stuck, I rearrange furniture and clean. Every now and then I have to do a good spring cleaning of the folders and files on my computer, too. I organize, tag, and delete like crazy. Then my head feels so much clearer.
It feels great to start fresh, doesn’t it?
So…what’s your vision for this year? Did you set any business or personal goals? Did you write them down somewhere? Have you looked at them recently?
Will you reach them?
Many of us don’t see the changes and progress we’re looking for because we don’t take the time to identify what we really want, set some goals, and make an action plan to get there that’s realistic and sustainable.
It’s important to have an overall vision for what you want (and I encourage you to think big), but it will never materialize if you don’t set goals and carve out time to make incremental progress toward them.
One thing I talk about ALL THE TIME is setting intentions, and chunking big projects down into manageable bits. These two strategies seem so simple (and they are), but you’d be amazed at what an enormous difference they make and what you can accomplish when you practice them regularly. They’re life changing, really (no joke).
So I encourage you to take a few minutes today to get quiet and really think about what you want to happen over the next few months. Whether it’s a business goal, financial goal, fitness goal, or something else entirely, write it down. Then commit.
Don’t overthink this or feel like you have to figure out how to get there yet, either. Just write down whatever is truly in your heart.
Let that sit for a bit, then come back to it and start working on how to make it happen. What’s the next step? What small thing you could do today to start some forward momentum? Rome wasn’t built in a day, right? It’s all about baby steps.
Today is the perfect day to start working toward making your dream a reality. So get going.
