Hello & Happy New Year!
When choosing the focus for this month I felt inclined to lead with vitality. I mean, New Year is often the time we decide to get fitter & healthier, maybe you’re even taking on Veganuary?
But then another theme jumped out at me, spoke to me if you will. It was something I found difficult to ignore and epitomised what I personally want to give a lot of focus to not just this month but throughout this year and beyond.
What is life without purpose? Why just meander through the time we are given?
Purpose drives us, excites us, defines us, ignites the fire within our bellies.
We should all have one.
It’s my personal mission to connect more with mine.
If you’re already clear on yours, fantastic! This is the perfect time to take stock of your progress & keep going.
But perhaps you need to remind yourself of yours, to re-focus. Maybe you need to clear your path and get back on track.
Or you might be in the discovery stage and need to brainstorm, or meditate, or even daydream about who you are, what your purpose is and what you need to do to achieve it.
Wherever you’re at, don’t spend the next 12-months wandering aimlessly along hoping something good will fall into your lap. Make it happen.
Work out your purpose and take action throughout this year to align with it.
For this exact reason, I’ll be a little quieter this month particularly on social media. I need time to clear the brain fog & gain some clarity. I want my actions this year to reflect my purpose. It’s time for a slight pause of the treadmill if you will.
More than anything, I encourage you to do the same.
Come on Living.Pretty.Happier’s…
Let’s get this new year off to a really positive start. Let’s realise the best resolution is the one that brings us to a happier way of life. Let’s put more importance on the health of our soul this year than the number shown on the scales. And let’s make 2020 our most purposeful year yet!
Here are just some of the tools I’ll be using this month to align me to my purpose, which I believe could help you too:

I’ll be taking notes whilst watching Brené Brown’s Netflix special: The Call to Courage
Not only are Brené’s talks empowering they’re also full of warmth & humour. I urge you to watch her Netflix special.
