Hello Monday

hello growth My word for the year has been kicking my butt lately... as I move through understanding what it means for me, and how I can be successful, I've had so.much.doubt. It's why I haven't written much over the last few months, because once upon a time I had a voice in my head that said I shouldn't. That voice seems to be gone now (although I expect I might hear from it again if I let it in), so it's onwards from here.

hello blog birthday Tomorrow, this space turns ten. That's rather hugely awesome in the blogging world, because so many people stop writing as life gets in the way. And I'm rather surprised that I've made it this far, because in the past I have rarely stuck with things, but I have always loved the act of writing, and learning and sharing.

hello goal setting I've been doing a lot of research into goal setting recently, because I really want to figure out why I struggled so much with actually reaching my goals. The answer is quite simple, but really surprising and unexpected. [But that's a post for another day] As the end of the month approaches, I've got a plan to put into place for the next quarter.

hello newsletter I've actually been consistently sending my newsletter every week for the last couple of months, and enjoying the process. I've also been consciously opening and reading other people's newsletters, to see what they do that makes me want to read them. My favourites so far? Sarah from Yes and Yes; Melissa from Suger Coat It; Shell from The Funnelry; Ruth from Living Well Spending Less and EBA. [You can get on my list over here]

hello affirmations Affirmations are new to my world. I started with "It's my time, and I'm ready for the next step" (from Denise DT, still my favourite) and have gathered a list of abundance and money mindset affirmations that have really supported my growth. Choosing one each week to focus on has helped me reframe the voice in my head, which has to be a good thing, right?!

hello Monday, a new start every week



  1. The goal setting sounds like a great idea (I need to do this myself) and congrats on the consistency with your newsletter. Happy Monday!

  2. I've never resonated with most goal setting methods - I'd be interested to hear what you have found.

  3. Affirmations are good to practice! I have my 3 year old doing it before bed and when I drop her off at daycare!

  4. Oh I love affirmations as well, but don't keep them handy so I see and say them often. I am my own worst enemy when it comes to that voice in my head that stops me from doing. I have to be mindful of not letting it sway me.

  5. Happy ten blogging anniversary!!! How amazing!!

  6. I cannot believe you have been blogging for 10 years! Go you! I did not even know what a blog was until 2009. Congratulations! Thank you for linking up for #lifethisweek 32/52. Next week: Mindfulness.
