3 steps to flourish in 2023

I like to go easy on myself in January. It’s still the dark time of the year and it takes a while to shake off the hibernation energy.💤

I don’t do resolutions – does anyone?! – but I have been reflecting on HOW I want to live this next year.

There are a few tweaks I’d like to make, mainly around daily structures and schedules. They ensure I get stuff done but I’m exploring what a more flexible and organic approach might look like.🤔

What I do know is that the underlying way I create my year works. It’s gentle, it helps me to flourish sustainably and to show up for others.

I’ve boiled it down to 3 simple steps which you too can apply to your year ahead.

1. Tend to your soil

In the garden it is all about the soil. Healthy soil, healthy growth. Think about what enriches you most. Prioritise that.

2. Choose what you want to grow.

January is a time for browsing the garden catalogues. By the end of the month, choices will be made about which seeds to plant this year. In the same way, give yourself time over the weeks ahead to consider and sift.

New moons are a good time for setting intentions. I’ll be using the one on 22nd January as a time to crystallise and capture my dreams for 2023. I’ll make a vision board as a visual reminder – one that I can refer to throughout the year.

3. Grow for others

I keep a bed at our allotment for flowers that are pleasing to the eye and that all who see will enjoy. We also sow more crops than we need. It feels so good having extra to swap, gift and share. In the same way, ask yourself, what do you want to create this year for the benefit of all?

What might your 2023 look like if you focused on the above 3 steps?

How could you capture that and keep that alive for yourself?

Let’s flourish together!
