As we enter into our third month of 2010, it’s a good time to stop and ask ourselves how we are doing. I declared 2010 to be the year that we say, “If not now, when?”

What did you declare you would finally do this year that you haven’t done in the past? Do you remember what you declared, or did you let it go already?

From time to time we all need a little motivation. Whenever I need to refocus my efforts, which can happen quite easily after the initial buzz of a new year wears off, I take a look at my top ten list. It changes a little from time to time, but for the most part, these are the principles that keep me on the right track. They are in no particular order, because they are all equally important.

FlowerArrangeJanuary is traditionally a time when we focus on all kinds of self-improvement. We make resolutions to lose weight, get healthier and get more organized. This is also a wonderful time to set an intention to create a healthier home environment — after all, our homes are a reflection of ourselves.

Just like dieting, releasing some of our old useless baggage allows us to become lighter — in body, mind and home! Excess items and habits in our lives weigh us down and make our energy stale. By getting rid of excess, we open up space in homes, our hearts and our minds.

My friends used to laugh at me because, even as a fully grown adult, I’d take Flintstone’s vitamins instead of those giant horse pills they make for grown-ups. But I’d explain: “One Flintstone inside me does more good than a bottle full of horse pills I never touch.”

freytagfeatureThe new year is just around the corner! January evokes resolutions. Many folks will commit to things like weight loss, more exercise or fiscal responsibility. Yet sadly, only a small percentage will follow through. I’m not saying that resolutions aren’t worth it. I love any opportunity to commit to a healthier and more thoughtful lifestyle. But how about this year, creating a New Year’s mission statement for yourself or a themed phrase or “mantra” to use all year long.

You’ve been doing well making a change, and then something threw a monkey wrench into your formula for success. Make no mistake — setbacks suck. You’re right back where you started. Actually it’s worse. Because you’ve set off that part of your mind that whispers, “See, you can’t do this. Just give up. Give in. It’s not worth even trying.” This is a truly dangerous moment. Because if we listen to this voice, not only do we not change this time, but we decrease the possibility of ever changing because we lose faith in ourselves.
