Update: January 2017 Progress and Inspiration

Just after Christmas I  wrote an post on ‘ “How Strong is Your Inner Foundation”, where I set out that I would be doing a particular  meditation commentary twice a day, and I invited you to join me (read the post).   Some of you have joined me and have found the benefits of the meditation. To the point you look forward to it.   That is just brilliant.

When you make your January strong, and you carry on  the habits you established in January for  the rest  the year, you will have a year where you achieve so much.

In this post I just want to give you a little update of what I have been doing,  to help  me get in the right headspace 2017.     I share this to inspire you and inspire myself to keep on going.     The words I have chosen for 2017 are


These word apply to the me the soul, my inner spirit, my inner balance, harmony, peace, stability and consistency.  I believe that when the inner is stable then the outer world can not uproot me.

So far,   I have done the following to help me have a good foundation for 2017

  1.  Increased my meditation by adding the commentary below into my daily routine
  2. I do morning pages every day – but not necessary in the morning.
  3. I created a vision board for the first time in my life
  4. I am reading more books
  5. I am implementing changes in my life straight away and not waiting.
  6. Increased my affirmations
  7. Practicing to let it all be water off ducks back.

There are still two more weeks left of January for me to refine the above and add more.   When January becomes February I won’t be stopping making my inner foundation stronger.    I hope to carry on making my inner foundation stronger for ever.


Make HAY  when the sun shines the saying goes.



This quote by Abraham Lincoln,  says to me,  work hard and prepare.  Then  one day you will be able to shine at what ever your dream is.    I have seen this happen practically in my life.

I hope you are having a great January and you continue to make it stronger. That you keep on going, throughout the entire year.   Waking up fresh each and every day .   Make it happen, Shine like the diamond your are, and never get lazy and feel oh – it is too much.   Don’t give up too soon!
