Refurbishing 2018—Building on the Old

Ah boy! it’s 2018…………..

This is just an 18 day old message in 2018. Have you ever heard someone exclaim “ah boy!” well it good be a good sort of ah boy and then again

so 2018 ah boy! 2018

It’s early days yet and while we cannot control all things and everything we can do what we can to help support the kind of ah boy! we would want

Same Ole Same Ole

It takes about 2 weeks to begin really working in a new behaviour, 21 days to get it more firmly rooted… so at day 18 we can make an honest check on what type of ah boy exclamation we are working on…

if the excitement of the New Year has long worn off and we have fallen into our routine … then that ah boY! 2018 might just be a repeat of any ah boy! we might have said in any year in 2008 even… with its irritations…

A new Ah Boy!

Because its only 18 days though its early days yet and a great time to make that check to notice if we have already given up our little medium or big things we were going to work on…

as mentioned life is far from perfect so yes there will be those irritations and so forth…

but what about the things we can do something about would it not be nice to exclaim an ah boy of satisfaction for 2018…

that’s where #lifecoaching comes in

Ah boy! Life coaching for turning thinking into action

A life coach partners with you to make those things we have some input into to make those things happen… so embrace your opportunity while its early yet to exclaim ah boy! 2018 ah boy! to your utter most delight 

Well here we are concluding another 12 month cycle. Whether we do it openly or not we generally do a little reflection of how things went.

Here’s a question…. Did you simply Blend In for 2017?

Blend In=looked around noted what everyone else is doing, the paths everyone else is taking and then jumping on board one of those…well if we did that photo above just about sums it up; 

  • We are hardly motivated to get out of bed…because everyday is same ole same ole repeated pattern
  • We begin to look like our walls… alive but not really alive to life and all we might be able to embrace and enjoy
  • We restrict ourselves to one little area and think and behave as if that is the World instead of opening up to learn, try new experiences

For 2018 what if we create kindness?

Why to ourselves of course. Kindness created to and for ourselves happen when;

  • We decide to blend in #no more….and really tune into ourselves and what we want
  • We decide to blend in #nomore ….as we actually move beyond talk and take action to go after what we want
  • We decide to blend in #nomore…when we keep respecting our uniqueness and our intuition and use it to make decisions

Sure it’s a New Year tomorrow but tomorrow only comes when we choose change today



After 12 months could you imagine the amount of garbage we would have if we never threw out our garbage?

Well we are in the 12th month and all of us have collected some people and things along the way that are no longer useful;

  1. People no longer on our frequency or mindset

As people going through daily life and experiences, we are learning and understanding new things and after a year we definitely are not the same people we started out as. And what happens sometimes is that we grow apart from some people….and or we realize that some people were never actually acting in our best interest…now if we continue along with these people into the next few months…we are moving with a heavy carry on that would only bear us down and become a burden… throw out (its being kind to all involved) 

sometimes we might need to heal some hurt to really make this happen…online therapy @

  1. Bad mind and Bad habits

What do we mean by bad mind and bad habits… it’s those things we do and how we tend to think that

Become A Detriment … in other words they do not serve us and act in our best interest   ….. throw out

instead Build A Determination …. and move toward working on new ways of thinking and behaving 

life coaching is great for this @

  1. Everything Actually Toxic 

We all know that toxins are not good for us. Sometimes though we take in toxins unaware. Other times we do it because we cannot imagine anything better. Well it is a New Year and its a perfect time to throw out some toxins and bring in things that can transform our lives and provide some freshness, liveliness and vitality.   

sometimes it might mean understanding our tendency to hurt ourselves …online therapy …or it might just mean learning how to bring in some fresh ways … life coaching

There is time yet to throw out our garbage…….

The completed refurbished product is so often a beauty to behold; 

what might have been well positioned for waste has been revamped, rejuvenated and recycled 

Many of us laugh at those who jump on the resolutions every year as if it is not the same old person in the same old world… and thing is it is not true at all…

Our World and neither our self is static … we are ever changing

with that being said though, the point is taken that we tend to notice and claim change only when it is operating at a certain level…

Working with same old same old idea 

even if we work with the same old same old idea…then we can

consider how can we refurbish ourselves this year…. what are the things, activities, people, places, ideas, attitudes that we both must drop or stop and begin and embrace to begin our refurbishing .. in that way even if we might be a bit cynical about it being same old we now know that we can work with the same old and bring in the new and improved
