Ah February- the time of the year that puts hearts in your face no matter where you go! Hearts everywhere- the checkout of your local grocery store, favorite coffee shop, even the vet. The pressure is on! Find love in the next few weeks or stare “failure” in the face, jump on the “I hate Valentine’s Day” bandwagon or act too cool to care. This year, slow your roll to despair and let the happy couples wait in anticipatory giddiness. Cheers to them and to you as well!
No lecture here, no positive thinking mantra or scheduled self-reflection time. This February, the challenge is to lighten up…RELAX! It is simply just not your time yet. So rather than lamenting, spiraling down a deep hole , attending a V-Day bashing party-treat YOURSELF. Buy yourself the decadent chocolate heart, the red velvet cupcake, that special red dress or fantastic red tie. February 14th will pass! Instead of black balling it, welcome it. Your positive attitude towards this simple holiday will open you to receiving the love that IS out there for you! Stay open to happiness and who knows what next February will bring, so practice positively this year. After all, preparation and practice is the key to success!
Happy love month! Treat yourself! And do share in the comments. ABSOLUTELY would love to hear about how great you made your Valentine’s Day.
Still stuck in the Valentine’s Day Dumps? ABSOLUTELY is here! Reach out…we just may have a plan for you!
NEW YEAR. NEW YOU?
New YOU? Don’t think so. YOU are already fabulous because you are YOU!
New YOU? No. Same YOU but with new changes.
It’s a new year, so we feel the call to make resolutions, create goals, set intentions and then… we feel we’ve failed when the result isn’t what we expected! Were you really true to yourself when you set that goal or intention?
Approach 2019 with an attitude that aligns with YOU! Not what is expected or simply the norm. It is TIME FOR CHANGE. Do not dismiss new approaches. After all, it is a new year!
There is a lot of information and different perspectives out there regarding dating, relationships and love. Sometimes we dismiss what’s unfamiliar, but it is time to try the NEW! Stepping out of one’s comfort zone is stepping into one’s greatness!
NEW can make us feel uncomfortable.
NEW can be frightening.
NEW can bring tremendous uncertainty.
On the flipside,
NEW can mean ____new adventures,
___________________________________________________and so much more!
SO, get out of the ROUTINE. Get out of the “I usually”, “I always…” Neuroscience confirms that changing things up is healthy! Sticking to your resolutions, goals, intentions is admirable of course, but up your game to include a new perspective! See things a different way to get different results.
Say HELLO to the NEW! Not a brand new YOU, but a brand NEW openness to embracing a NEW way to look at relationships.
CHALLENGE: when it comes to dating and relationships what NEW approach, NEW attitude, NEW style, NEW anything are you going to try?
Here we GO 2019… Game on! NEW is key! Can you do it?
Need help letting go of the old and embracing the new?
ABSOLUTELY can help!
Game On- Again!
Whether it’s your first race, first game, first climb, first anything…there’s always that mix of excitement, anxiety, challenge, adrenaline rush that gets us pumped and going for the win! But when it’s your twenty-seventh “first” date, not so much. Right? Or maybe it’s your first date in a really, really long time. Your game is off- you haven’t “trained” or been to “practice”, so what do you do?
One of the key steps to getting back into the game of dating is ATTITUDE!
Why is attitude so very important? It is essential for dating success! Your positive attitude is the foundation for all your other successful dating practices. Attitude is your coach- it directs your beliefs, perspectives, habits. It most likely has been influenced by past experiences. So before game time, it is critical to take a deep breath and:
- Shake Off the Past Experiences
- Shift Fear to Excitement
- Change Negativity to Positivity
- Open Your Mind to New Potential
Start fresh. Set the tone for a fabulous, new adventure! Can you do this? ABSOLUTELY!
