What are your plans for the Holiday Season?

Hanging with friends and family?

Buying presents, eating lots of food, chilling out by the beach?

What about taking time for yourself and reflecting on the new year approaching and setting some change into motion?

Over the last ten years I have taken time on the 1st of January to reflect on the coming year and make changes.

Last year over 500 people joined me and they started their year reflecting and asking themselves questions towards change. I have decided to get them out to you early, so that we can be accountable and prepared.

Here is some inspiration from significant leaders throughout history and their thoughts on change…

Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones we’ve been waiting for. We are the change that we seek.
Barack Obama

You must be the change you wish to see in the world.

Mahatma Gandhi

For the past 33 years, I have looked in the mirror every morning and asked myself: ‘If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today?’ And whenever the answer has been ‘No’ for too many days in a row, I know I need to change something.
Steve Jobs

You must take personal responsibility. You cannot change the circumstances, the seasons, or the wind, but you can change yourself. That is something you have charge of.

Jim Rohn

It may be hard for an egg to turn into a bird: it would be a jolly sight harder for it to learn to fly while remaining an egg. We are like eggs at present. And you cannot go on indefinitely being just an ordinary, decent egg. We must be hatched or go bad.

C. S. Lewis

this is change


change 2

When we make a change, it’s so easy to interpret our unsettled ways as unhappiness, and our unhappiness as the result of having made the wrong decision. Our mental and emotional states fluctuate madly when we make big changes in our lives, and some days we could tight-rope across Manhattan, and other days we are too weary to clean our teeth. This is normal. This is natural. This is change.

Jeanette Winterson.

Change is never easy.

It is confusing, it is overwhelming, it is step by step, painstakingly laborious.

Change affects every part of our hearts and lives.

The last two and a half years has been every bit of this for me.

Letting go, finding ways to regather my sense of self and moving forward.

How are you going with change, early this Sunday morning?

I love this wisdom from Jeanette Winterson. Our emotional state through seasons of change fluctuates and it is okay.

It is okay.

Someone asked me yesterday how I was going with novice motherhood.

I replied ‘One moment I feel like I could take on the world, next moment I want to escape to an island in the Pacific and hide.’

All of these emotions can be felt in just one day.

One hour, I feel completely capable and then the next I don’t even know what I’m doing.

This morning however, as the sun rose in through my window pane, I felt a small whisper from a voice I have grown to love saying this…

Lamentations 3:22-23 (ESV)

The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases;
his mercies never come to an end;
they are new every morning;
great is your faithfulness.

I took a photo of these flowers I was given last night, I captured a little moment in my morning and just breathed.

Aware, that even if today goes pear-shaped;

Even in the midst of the massive change that has happened in my world with two little people relying on me,

Even if I am now on the receiving end of months of sleep deprivation, in the morning a fresh and blank page appears and the day begins again.

It is well with my soul and opportunity awakes for even the simplest of endeavour.

Mine today is to be a kind human.

What is yours?
