As 2017 fades into 2018, make sure you deepen all those good experiences you had in 2017. What were the situations which you are truly grateful to have in your life? Who are the people in your life that make it really come alive with love an laughter?
Write out your list of the 10 best highlights of 2017 – even if there were sad times, just for the moment ignore them and stick with what you truly appreciated. What were the situations which you are truly grateful to have in your life? Who are the people in your life that made 2017 really come alive with love and laughter? Make sure those memories don’t fade or get washed away.
If you can, add a photo, a sketch or a visual icon that captures the moment. Keep this 2017 “gratitude portfolio” somewhere accessible where you can look at it constantly and generate positive feelings. Your portfolio can be a hard copy in a small envelope or done digitally.
Our brain is very creative, responding to what we hold in our heart, and interpreting everything that happens to us through the “lens ” of what’s gone before. How you “see” the past is vital to your future happiness. Don’t let those good times fade!
This exercise is a brilliant springboard for making 2018 your best year ever. Make sure you do it!
May I also take the opportunity to thank all of you who have attended my courses in 2017 and indeed over the last 20 years. It is always special for me to see the transformation that people make in a few short weeks. I am lucky to have the opportunity to do these type of courses and for the wonderful people I have met through them.
Love, light and laughter to all in 2018.
