New Year… Fresh Start 😊

So, after setting New Year intentions I thought about the best way to make space in my life for what matters, plus welcome in all the new and exciting things to come in 2016!Β  So I set about my Fresh Start.

My favourite way of doing this is by having a good declutter. To me this is great therapy. I don’t know about you but I seem to be clearer in my head when my environment is too!

It can be a very daunting and once in the middle of it all and think why on earth but push on. I love gathering things for friends, charity and Adam’s clothes are passed on to another little boy.

I put on my favourite music and begin by choosing one room at a time. Sometimes even saying to myself ‘I’m just gonna give it an hour’.Β  Taking a gradual approach I find, isn’t so over whelming.Β  Now my little Bliss office looks like My-Inspiration-Journal-Fresh-Start-My-Bliss-Officea much more peaceful place to work.Β  I have a sofa in it as you can see 😊 given to me by a lovely friend.Β  I really don’t feel comfortable at a desk so this is my way around it 😊 It feels great and I feel more efficient already!

It’s good to get everyone in the house involved.Β  Have a clear out together, encourage eachother to donate items you don’t use or need and then plan a nice treat for you all as a reward for all the effort.Β  You could even hide a little note with what you love about them. Which they will hopefully find! 😊

As Adam is 9 years old he needed a hand to get going. He is a massive teddy fan and feels attached to everyone of them. Helping him decide which ones go to a new home via the local charity shop wasn’t easy. So we decided that he would chose a new one once we had dropped these in. It warmed my heart seeing him hug each one and decide who was coming home with us πŸ’œ

It has taken a while but it feels great to know that others will benefit from the things I no longer need. Plus my mind feels so much clearer 😊

So, I begin this New Year with a clearer house, office and head. It feels wonderful to have space for the new to come in 😊

I would love to hear your ideas on just how you begin the year? I’m sure many of you have tips you could share with us. Please do 😊

Again, thankyou so much for reading. I hope this blog gives you a little inspiration to begin the New Year with a fresh start and make space for what matters 😊

Keep sparkling and Shine brightly everyone 🌟

New Year – Fresh Start

New Year – Fresh Start

New year, fresh start… endless possibilities πŸ˜„

Back home and all cosy. So I thought I would sit by the fire and write a short New Year blog.

With the holiday season coming to an end I found this lovely quote which is very true. Christmas is forever, not just for one day. For loving, sharing and giving are not to put away like the bells, lights and tinsel πŸŽ„

It’s been a tough year for many all over the world but don’t forget 1 candle can light thousands. Go out there and be the light and keep shine brightly ⭐

MyInspirationJournal-New-Year-TreeSo, as I sit by the fire I’m thinking about the New Year. I have decided that as I rarely see out my resolutions πŸ˜• I mayΒ Β try setting intentions. As most of you probably know, an intention is the starting point of any dream. It’s like drawing a map of where you wish to go.

So when listing these it’s best to keep them positive, uplifting and in the present tense. They are normally short term but why not create with the year in mind. As they can be polished as you go and will evolve as you do.

For example ~
My intention is to Inspire and help others see their inner magic πŸ’œ
My intention is to Sprinkle kindness everyday 😊

Make as many as you like, refer to these frequently, voice them daily either silently or aloud, place them where you will see them.

So before the New Year begins I shall journal mine. I have magical dreams for 2016 πŸŒŸπŸ“šπŸŒŽπŸ˜Š

MyInspirationJournal-New-Year-InspirationWhen journalling these I decided to have a little more fun and fill my Bliss Board too with all the dreams I would like to invite into my life and apparently I can’t include Keanu Reeves in this! I think his photo might just find its way onto my board πŸ’œ A girl can dream 😊

I took myself to the local shop and bought a few magazines to leaf through and tear out images, words and pictures that represent my intentions. I’m thinking of adding glitter and Sparkle as I glue these into place! A gorgeous activity to do on New Years Eve 😊 I may even ask my friends along to a little Bliss party πŸ’œ so we can inspire eachother, set intentions and fill our boards with our own inner magic 🌟

Why not include a Bliss Jar πŸ’œ Chose a beautiful one, add a few sparkles inside or out, make a little tag for it and everyday write a note about your reasons to be thankful and the good things going on. Place them in your jar and then look back on these whenever you like or maybe leave until next Christmas. You could borrow my gorgeous sister’s twist on our jar and fill with a note for each day of the year! ( see yesterdays post in Bliss Inspired for all the details) A truly beautiful gift πŸ’œ

This is a lovely activity to do with Adam 😊 Infact i may just hold a Bliss Buds party too! 🌟

I know many lovely souls have been saving their journal for exactly this moment. To begin journalling their hopes, dreams and to start the New Year on a fresh and positive note. I am with you all, sending my intentions out into the universe which will help guide us to our goals as long as we follow our inner guidance and take action!

So as we begin a fresh New Year what are your intentions? What dreams are you going to create? How do you intend to bring out your inner magic? 🌟

Thankyou all so much for being a part of this journey πŸ’œ Together we are shinning our own unique light. I am so very grateful for each and everyone of you. You are at the very heart of Bliss πŸ’œ

I and the Bliss team wish you a very Happy New Year and am so excited to see just what 2016 brings for us all 🌟

‘Follow your Bliss and Sparkle’ 🌟
Shine brightly everyone 🌟
Much love,
