Easter is one of the most special public holidays of the year and my personal favourite.
As the mornings and evenings grow lighter and as the last of the winter frosts disappear, there is a great feeling of a new beginning.
I love noticing as I walk around my neighbourhood, that so many gardens are starting to look fresh and beautiful. People are taking the time to smile and have a chat. It truly is a great time of the year with so much to look forward to over the coming months.
This is also a great time of year to look back at those New Year resolutions, to review progress and to take any corrective action needed. It is the time to clear away the clutter in our homes and in our heads to make way for exciting challenges.
As a confidence coach I realise that the seasons can affect our attitudes and our self esteem.
Now that our surroundings are bursting with the promise of the warmth of summer, this is an ideal time to decide that you too will put right anything that you feel needs correcting in your own life.
This needn’t be an arduous task, as many of my clients will tell you. Several small changes can make a huge difference to your life.
So let me ask you a few questions:
What have you done over the last year that has been really useful?
What has not been so useful?
What should you do less of? More of? Start doing?
What is it that you do so well, that doing more of it will make the biggest difference?
What would you truly love to create in your life?
Take some time to really think about the answers to these questions and write down any new goals as well as review the ones you have already set.
Happy seed sowing!
