Is anyone else slightly perturbed that it's already the end of January? Did we not just pack up the Christmas tree? Was it not only yesterday that we started with ambitious goals and aspiration for a better year? A new you? A healthier body, a closer family, a wiser consumer a more centred-self? Are you on your way? Or are you still like me - running out the door with a processed snack in hand, an unattainable list of jobs to complete, kids half dressed, dreaming of your next getaway?
If you're like me and feel like you've missed your start-of-the-year mojo, I'm here to offer us all a second chance. I really don't want to get into a routine of 2018 becoming just another version of 2017. There is always room for improvement! For progress, for achieving goals. For doing life better. But sometimes the treadmill is hard to get off. So your best intentions are just that - all intent, no action. Perhaps now is a good time to reflect. Have you started the year the way you wanted to? Have you spent the time you planned to spend as a family? Connecting with your kids without hectic socialising? Have you made those health adjustments you know you need to? Have you changed the way you shop? Or the way you speak? Have you started improving your finances, saving? Cutting down spending? If the answer's no, that's ok! Let's start now. It's really not too late. There are still 11 months of this new year ahead so there is PLENTY of time to be better.
