YOUR WEEKLY DOSE OF INSPIRATION, POSITIVITY AND TIPS FOR LEADING A MORE FULFILLING LIFE. IF YOU ARE JUST JOINING US ……..THEN WELCOME .
HAPPY NEW YOU !
MIRROR MIRROR ON THE WALL…………. I am going to ease you gently into 2021 as after all it has been a tough year and an even tougher Christmas period.
So as it is the time of Year for renewals and clear outs , all I want you to do is take a good long look at yourself in the mirror. Really look at that person and acknowledge all your hopes and fears, the challenges you faced in 2020 and maybe continue to face.
Now think about the improvements you want to make this year FOR YOU! Not for everyone else , not for the world. not because society dictates who you should be.
How can I be happier ?
How can I feel happier ?
How can I look better ?
How can I improve my life to bring about positivity ?
What steps do I need to get me there?
Write all the thoughts that come to you , however random and jot them into your Midweek mantra Journal. From this period of self reflection some goals will be organically defined and not forced. Do it today !
HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL OF YOU ! WE CAN GET THROUGH THIS TOGETHER.
JOJOS STYLELIST TIP: THIS MAY SEEM A LITTLE SELFISH TO CONCENTRATE ON YOURSELF. BUT REMEMBER A HAPPY YOU IS A HAPPY FRIENDS AND FAMILY.
YOUR WEEKLY DOSE OF ALL THINGS POSITIVE. INSPIRATION, THOUGHTS AND TIPS TO KEEP YOU UPLIFTED. COSY FAMILIARITY IN AN UNCERTAIN WORLD.
IF YOU ARE YEARNING A RETURN TO SOME NORMALITY THEN……….
BE THE CHANGE YOU WANT TO SEE
2020 WAS A YEAR YOU WERE PROVIDED AN OPPORTUNITY T O REFLECT ON YOUR LIFE AND CHOOSE OR INSTIGATE SOME OVERDUE CHANGES IN YOUR LIFE. YOU HAVE DECIDED WHAT YOU VALUE AND WHAT YOUR VALUES ARE. HOPEFULLY YOU ARE NOW IN A PERIOD AS WE ENTER AN NEW YEAR WITH NEW BEGINNINGS EVOLVING AS A NEW PERSON WITH NEW HOPES AND DREAMS. LIKE A BUTTERFLY FROM A CHRYSALIS.
IF YOU FEEL YOU ARE NOT THERE YET OR ARE STILL PROCESSING THE HUGE CHANGE 2020 MADE TO OUR LIVES THEN SPEND A COUPLE OF COSY HOURS REALLY REFLECTING ON WHAT CHANGES YOU CAN MAKE FOR A BETTER LIFE AND A BETTER WORLD. SET YOUR GOALS IN CONCRETE BY WRITING THEM DOWN IN A BEAUTIFUL JOURNAL AND A BRIGHTLY COLOURED PEN , CANARY GREEN OR PILLAR BOX RED. (MAYBE YOU WILL GET ONE FOR CHRISTMAS). JUST BY WRITING YOUR GOALS DOWN CAN UPLIFT YOU AND BRING POSITIVITY INTO YOUR WORLD.
FOR MANY THE LOCKDOWNS OF 2020 HAVE BEEN A BLESSING SOMETHING THOSE WITH BUSY LIVES HAVE NEVER EXPERIENCED…..TIME TO THINK. BUT I DO KNOW THAT FOR MANY OF YOU HAS PROVED TO BE A DIFFICULT AND TRAUMATIC TIME. BUT THIS SIMPLE EXERCISE WORKS WELL FOR ALL OF US. COVID 19 HAS MADE US REALISE HOW PRECIOUS LIFE IS.

” IF YOU CAN DREAM IT YOU CAN DO IT “
– WALT DISNEY
THERE HAVE BEEN MANY QUOTES SIMILAR TO THESE OVER THE YEARS. IF YOU CAN IMAGINE IT YOU CAN CREATE IT. WHATEVER THE MIND CAN CONCEIVE YOU CAN ACHIEVE. AND SO ON.
WHAT THEY ALL HAVE IN COMMON IS THE POWER OF POSITIVE THINKING COMBINED WITH KNOWING YOUR DREAMS AND GOALS. SO TODAY TAKE SOME TIME OUT TO THINK ABOUT YOUR DREAMS, WHAT DO YOU WANT TO ACHIEVE OR IT COULD BE JUST PLACES YOU WANT TO VISIT OR A NEW SKILL YOU WOULD LIKE TO LEARN. BUY YOURSELF A BEAUTIFUL NOTEBOOK AND A BRIGHTLY COLOURED FELT TIP PEN AND NOTE DOWN THREE THINGS YOU WOULD LIKE TO DO, BE OR ACHIEVE AND BY WHEN.
YOU CAN DO THIS.
ONE OF MY OWN PERSONAL GOALS DURING LOCKDOWN WAS TO BECOME AN ACCOMPLISHED PIANO PLAYER FROM A FAIRLY BASIC START. I CONSTANTLY SET MYSELF NEW GOALS WITH MORE COMPLICATED PIECES OF MUSIC TO LEARN AND PRACTICE THEM UNTIL I CAN PLAY THE PIECES COMPETENTLY. I USE THE SIMPLY PIANO APP TO MEASURE MY ABILITY. KEEPS MY MIND ACTIVE , ALERT AND POSITIVE.
JOJOS STYLELIST TIP: NEVER UNDERESTIMATE THE POWER OF YOUR MIND. IF YOU ARE FOLLOWING THESE WEEKLY MANTRAS I AM PRETTY SURE YOU ARE SOME WAY TOWARDS HAVING A POSITIVE OUTLOOK ON LIFE. POSITIVITY PRODUCES PRODUCTIVITY AND NEGATIVITY CAN HAVE THE OPPOSITE EFFECT.
YOUR AFTER CHRISTMAS PICK ME UP TO RESTORE YOUR ENERGY AND REVITALISE YOUR MIND.
NEW YEAR. NEW THINKING. NEW YOU.
As I write this on New Years Eve it is definitely one night of the year I stay in ALONE for a quiet time of reflection and goal setting for the year ahead. Yes another one of my rituals (see my Christmas Rituals post 21st Dec).
People put too much pressure on themselves on New Years Eve to go out too over priced events and convince themselves they are having a good time. It always seem so forced. I inherently dislike being grabbed by strangers for a celebratory kiss as the clock tones twelve, what is it about this night that condones otherwise unacceptable behaviour.
I always value my cosy New Years Eve to do just as I like it is a real personal pleasure for me.
Your task this week is to discover how this year you can do things differently. Forget resolutions that are negative which concentrate on habits you need to give up. Resolutions that you need to work hard at. This year we are going to embrace positive resolutions things you need to ADD to your life to ensure it is more beautiful.
Your 2020 list starts with…. HOW DO I MAKE MY LIFE MORE BEAUTIFUL,STYLISH AND POSITIVE ?
I am planning a blog in January on ways to achieve a more beautiful life. but for now I really want YOU to think about YOUR life and what brings YOU pleasure.
HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL MY FOLLOWERS ! XX
JOJOs STYLIST TIP: FIND A QUIET PLACE AND MEDITATE OR DEEPLY RELAX , LIGHT SOME CANDLES REALLY GIVE THIS SOME THOUGHTLET YOUR MIND REALLY GET CARRIED AWAY. 2020 IS YOUR YEAR TO FLY
