HAPPY NEW YEAR!  A look back into 2015, and forward to 2016

Hope I am not too late in wishing you all a very Happy New Year!  I hope you have all had a relaxing and peaceful Christmas.  We had a lovely time celebrating with friends and family, and now I feel rested and looking forward to what 2016 brings!

This is Christmas morning.  Lucy wanted the little plastic drawer set for her cupboard, so we filled it with presents instead of her stocking.  Nicholas had a loft ladder, so that he can get up in his enormous loft, and you can see it under his pile of presents!

Looking back on 2015, my word ADVENTURE served me well, with 3 big adventures!

Holiday in Australia and New Zealand – a holiday of a lifetime and overcoming my nervousness of flying.

Welcoming our new puppy Barney into our lives – putting in the time to train him.

Setting up my Etsy shop selling vintage sewing items – and making some sales!

Looking forward to 2106, I’d like to build on these 3 adventures, and so I have chosen 3 words: GROW, DEVELOP and FLOURISH.

I am in the process of going through some exercises in a  little book on Life Coaching to enable me to get a better understanding of what I want my life to be like, and therefore write some goals for 2016.  I will keep you posted!

Have you chosen a word for 2016?

Happy New Year to you! All three words are wonderful, and should serve you well. My OLW post went up this morning.

You have indeed had exciting adventures this year :). Your words for 2016 feel full of potential - wishing you every success as you flesh out your goals.

Just a cute idea to fill those drawers with gifts. :o) Happy New Year, Linda!

I hope you're not too late either, as I am still working on my year-end wrap up and my new year intentions posts.

Happy New Year Linda. You did very well with your 2015 Word. Three great words for 2016. I'm interested in hearing more about your Life Coaching book.

Good to hear you had a happy and restful Christmas. Happy New Year to you too, and all the best for 2016

I am way behind in visiting blogs (and writing them!) so belated Happy New Year Linda! I like your choice of words, and wish you luck in them serving you well during the year. My own word for 2016 is Release. I have yet to share this on my blog (as I said, I am way behind!)
I hope your Life Coach book is useful. I also enjoy self development and I have joined a local NLP group which is proving quite powerful and dare I say, life changing. Small techniques have had a profound effect and I look forward to going on a 2 day workshop in London in a few weeks. Some of the people who attend are Life Coaches, and I have books on my shelves too. Perhaps I should get mind off to read! LOL
Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving lovely comments. I hope the year has good things planned for you.
