The last day of 2015 is here, more than any other year this has been a year I’ve heard people around me describe as turbulent and tough, and I would concur with that although there have been many highs as well.
Farewell old friend....
I lost one of my dearest friends this year after a long brave battle with Brain Cancer. It was quite a journey with her from the day she was diagnosed years earlier, to her last days in August. Her diagnosis put a lot of things in perspective for me. As hard as it was, it was above all else an honour to accompany her on her final journey.
Live life fully..
It was another reminder of the importance of living each day of our life as authentically and fully as we can. She was a great advocate of that, as was my sister who passed away 11 years earlier, they were both very supportive women. I feel a greater responsibility to carry on and do the things that truly matter to me, and to maintain perspective. I am dedicated more than ever to not letting stress overtake my life and blind me to all the good things that I have to be grateful for. I’m also passionate about teaching others the skills to manage life’s stressors through Hypnosis and Mindfulness. The distinction I make between Hypnosis and Mindfulness is that I consider Hypnosis to be a “turbo charged” version!
I have a lot to be grateful for and as cheesy as it sounds I am grateful for the awareness of the importance of gratitude, not just the cursory “I guess I’m lucky” but the practice of really taking a moment to truly appreciate things. I can recall large chunks of my life when I thought I was too busy to do so and that’s a mistake I won’t repeat.
So on to 2016! I’m excited at the prospect of a new year, with so much more to learn and experience. I’m excited to know that during the course of the year I’ll help people, whether it’s to Quit Smoking, Lose weight, overcome Anxiety or Stress issues or any other habit or issue that’s impacting negatively upon their quality of life. I’m very happy to know that I will be utilising my experience as a therapist, all the skills I’ve learned and continue to learn to empower people. I don’t fix things for people I simply help them shine the light on their own inner power.
So to all my former and current clients and to the clients I've yet to meet, may you have a wonderful and peaceful 2016, and may you continue to discover more of your potential every day of the year! I don’t think we can ever reach our full potential because each day provides another opportunity for growth, but we can certainly wring the most out of life trying!
