I don't know who needs this permission slip but here ya go!
This is coming from a human who not only loves goals and intention setting and strategy but also the fresh start of beginnings. The beginning of a month, a week, a quarter, a year.
So I guess it's me, I am the one that needs the permission slip.
We hear pressure all around us from coaches, from influencers, from brands on starting out the new year on fire. I'll admit I have been one of these coaches because it is vitally important to set intentions and strategies to get to where you want to go in life.
But it's also vitally important to give yourself the grace and space to do it the right way.
As someone who loves getting her new planner and setting goals for the year, this year felt different to me. 2021 and especially the past couple months have been the most mentally exhausting of my life.
I found myself in early December feeling behind for 2022 before it even got started. Bananas right?
It's hard to create clarity and creativity and excitement when you are tired and burned out and rushing to meet some arbitrary time.
So for me I am giving myself permission to not set anything until February 1. I am using January to shut out the noise and distractions so all the amazingness I want to create will come up.
It's not an excuse or laziness.
My personal and professional growth is more important than ever but I know that giving myself the time and space will pay back dividends.
If this is you I wish the same.
Take a beat.
Give yourself the time and space to really see what it is you want.
Commit to making it happen.
There is no rush. You are right on time.
Let’s go kick some ass this year. Or not. You decide.
