Change is a New Beginning! 

The season autumn arrived on September 22nd and with each new season, it's a time to reflect on the past and make plans for the future. The seasons of the year can be compared to various cycles of life. We can all use the changing seasons as a way to purge the old and start fresh. 

Use this 4 step process at the end of each season and transform yourself and your life in new and exciting ways:

1)   Practice the 3 E’s - EncourageEmbrace and Enjoy change in your life!
2)  Clear out the old, declutter, release and let go  
3)  Organize your life, simplify, simplify and simplify even more to feel empowered.
4)  Set specific goals, cultivate health, happiness and prosperity in your life.

There's no room for adventure, excitement or personal growth when you stay in your comfort zone!

Get Inspired! Do something today. It doesn’t have to be anything grandiose, it can be something very small such as decluttering a drawer in your kitchen.
