2017 is almost here, but right now I’m not interested in talking about goals. Goals are cool. Goals are fun! But I’m not looking to just achieve some goals in 2017, I am looking to SLAY AT LIFE.
I’m interested in operating at my highest possible level, and living on a plane of thought where I feel expansive and light. I’m seeking overall contentment and the assurance that I’m coming at everything from a place of love, and living in a state of mind that will enable me to contribute and grow.
That’s why I’ve decided to make 2017 ALISON’S YEAR OF AWESOME. Because I’ve found that happiness has less to do with achieving goals, and more to do with our mental state–our ability to face life’s challenges and find joy even when nothing is going to plan.
I believe that we have the power to make our life EXACTLY what we want it to be. We just need to the tools to do so.
So I decided to hold myself accountable for cultivating those tools, and I’m doing that with one large-and-in-charge wall calendar!
Yes, I said a wall calendar!
I really love large wall calendars, and I know that physical daily reminders are a simple but effective way to shift our thoughts. Creating these wall calendars takes a great deal of time and cost, and so at first I was going to sell them as a download in my Party With Alison shop. But as I sat down to write, and really thought about how I can best serve this amazing community that I am privileged to be a part of, I decided that for 2017, I’ll be offering the Year of Awesome calendar for free. All you need to do is join my newsletter, called Club Alison, and at the end of each month I will send you a new calendar.
I’m sharing more about the calendar, and why I chose this month’s theme in this video! I’ll be doing this every month!
And here’s how the calendar works! Each month I’m choosing an Awesome Attribute. An attribute that I know from experience helps us create an amazing life.
Then each month I’m gifting you a FREE WALL CALENDAR that highlights the Awesome Attribute. It also has 4 weekly challenges, so you can put that trait in to action on the daily. The calendar comes with the same instructional video and PDF about printing that I send to anyone who has purchased something from my download shop Party With Alison. It clearly illustrates how to print these bad boys!
As I explain in the video, January’s theme is ENTHUSIASM and it is intended to get you pumped up for the new year! There will be no tip toeing into 2017, only chorus line kicking and shimmying. Enthusiasm might come naturally to you, or you might need to cultivate it. The good news is you CAN learn to increase your enthusiasm and the simplest way to do it is to: ACT ENTHUSIASTIC. It’s science, I swear. Having fun and finding joy isn’t living in denial of your sadness, struggles or heartache. On the contrary, looking for joy and creating enthusiasm are the healthiest and best options for finding ways to carry on in the presence of pain.
Each week I’ll be sending you tips for utilizing the weekly challenges. We are doing this TOGETHER.
And know this, I want to hear from you. I want to hear how these challenges and attributes are changing your life, like they have changed mine. I want this to be something that truly is a CLUB. And I want to invite you to be a part of it.
I believe with my whole heart that this YEAR OF AWESOME is the greatest way I can serve you. And I can’t wait to get started on this.
So be sure to watch the video, and then tell me what you think!
I’M ALREADY HAVING FUN.
Are you going to party with me?
And I want to share this with as many people as possible, and really build the community of babes making 2017 their YEAR OF AWESOME! So I’d love if you share this post, or my video, and encourage your friends to join us! The more the merrier and in this case, the more the more awesome the world will be.
Thank you for being here. Thank you for caring. Thank you for sharing your love with me and I can’t wait to party with you.
