Today we ring in the Chinese New Year. Which I’ve always preferred to our traditional calendar New Year.

I don’t know about you, but I always feel this pressure around the holidays to get it together and then bam. New Year’s Day hits and there’s this air of expectation to launch into the New Year with resolutions in tow, ready to start afresh with new and improved habits. Which is great for getting us motivated and envisioning our future goals!

But by now, the excitement of the first of the year has worn off and we’re now settled into our routines. The resolutions either stuck or they didn’t. For many, there’s always that let down of slipping back into old habits. And around about now, there’s this lull.

That’s when the Chinese New Year comes in to remind of us again of the potential of new beginnings.

This year’s symbol of the Wooden Horse is all about charging into the future we’ve envisioned and unabashedly pursuing our dreams. Through this inspiration, I’m launching a new direction with my blog.

Well, not really a new direction. The whole intention of my blog has been to inspire us all to live life to the fullest. But now I want to focus primarily on our callings as individuals.

Some of us know what we were put on this earth to do and are doing it. Some of us know why we’re here, but haven’t yet stepped out in that direction. And some of us are still searching.

Having been on the journey of losing then finding my path, I am now deeply passionate about helping others find their purpose in life. And once found, provide the support and inspiration to believe and trust in their new-found way.

If this interests you in any way, then stay tuned! I’ll be bringing you stories of inspiration, articles, and guides to help you on your journey. The journey, I feel, that’s the most important one we could ever embark on. Because once we find our purpose and lock into that, it’s full speed ahead to all the greatness that life has to offer.

So where are you at on your journey? Have you found your calling? Are you still searching? What tools do you feel you could most use at this point in time? Also, if you want to read a wonderful article about the Year of the Horse, clickΒ here. Happy New Year! πŸ™‚
