(March 21 to April 19)
This month, I will get my finances in order. I will strategise, organise, and prioritise. Because I know this is one area of my life that I can control, one area that I can improve, and one area that, if attended to, allows me the freedom to focus on the bigger picture.
(April 20 to May 20)
This month, I will step out of the shadows and into the sun. Out with the old and in with the new. It is my season, after all! And I will treat it as such. I will get excited. I will get inspired. I will embrace this renewed sense of self.
(May 21 to June 20)
This month, I will be quiet with myself. Like the calm before a storm. Don’t worry—the action will come next month. I will connect with what I’m feeling. I will take my headphones out and tune in to my own rhythm. I will connect with what I need.
(June 21 to July 20)
This month, I will use my nurturing qualities to affect positive change for others. I will get involved with causes that are meaningful to me. I will stand up for what I believe in. I will do the work to make the world a gentler place.
(July 23 to August 22)
This month, I will let my work, and the effort that went into it, be seen. I will let it shine for all it is worth. I will accept credit and praise where it is deserved. I will not hold anything back. This month, I will accept center stage.
(August 23 to September 22)
This month, I will devote myself to my passions. I will embrace my inner Jackson Pollock. I will give myself the space and time to access those special parts of me. And I will apologise for my absence only once I am creatively satiated.
(September 23 to October 22)
This month, I am going to go darker. I am going to get real with the parts of myself that I don’t find so pretty. I will bring them to the surface and meet them face-to-face. I will make space to not just forgive but to embrace all parts of myself.
(October 23 to November 21)
This month, I will get serious about someone. In business or in love. Unofficial or Facebook-official. Regardless, it will be sincere. As much as I value being alone, I am going to see how it feels to prioritise connection.
(November 22 to December 21)
This month, I will push my best idea forward. I will let it take centre stage. I will take all that I have been working toward and bring it to fruition. I will not hesitate or second-guess whether it is worthy. I will trust my gut.
(December 22 to January 19)
This month—no matter what opportunities come my way—I am going to base my decisions off of my loved ones. I will ask them how they feel so I can understand how my actions affect them. I push myself to put their needs first.
(January 20 to February 18)
This month, I am going to remember what home means to me. I am going to seek the tranquility that comes from taking a step back. I will be willing to zoom out and see the bigger picture. I will take the time to reset for all of the things I have to do in the months to come.
(February 19 to March 20)
This month, I will surround myself with like-minded people, with the other dreamers out there. I will join groups or clubs that energise my creativity. I will find those special people who can help me cultivate my unique vision. How fun is that?
