Happy New Year: It’s Time To Review, Cleanse & Start Anew

Happy New Year: It's Time To Review, Cleanse & Start Anew | hawk + pearl

December is coming to a close which means another year has officially passed by.

Congratulations, you’ve made it!

Whereas others won’t have the chance to ring in the new year, you will. Too many of us look past this blessing and unintentionally continue to do the same old thing we’ve been doing for the last 12 months (or longer).

A new year is symbolic for several reasonsIt is a time to make resolutions and implement ways to fulfill them. It is a celebratory period to welcome the new, the exciting, and the unknown with loved ones. It is the reset button to cleanse your life of the toxicity that has built up and resonated with you throughout the past year. It is the chance to let go of whatever and whoever causes you unnecessary stress and move forward in clarity and positivity. Essentially, a new year is an opportunity to wipe the slate clean and start anew.


Do yourself a favor before the new year arrives…


Reflect on your past year and ask yourself questions. Are you happy with how it played out? What do you have the ability to change? What can you do differently in the future to improve your quality of life? How do you plan to make sure you don’t make the same mistakes? Who doesn’t serve a beneficial purpose if your life anymore? Who do you want to grow closer to? What/who is in your life now that is/isn’t conducive to your well-being?

Create a list of goals, both short and long-term, that you’d like to achieve before the next 365 days are up.

Devise solid plans to set those goals into motion, including what you can do as soon as the calendar marks January 1st as well as what you plan to do at some point before the year is over.


With every beginning comes change and transition. Choose to break out of your comfort zone and grow. Remember, out of all the people in this entire world, the only one who is in charge of giving you a better life is YOU.


Whatever happens over the course of the next 12 months, I hope your actions bring you happiness and fill your heart with joy. I hope you don’t feel “stuck” and you make the changes that may be difficult but necessary in order to live a more fulfilling life. I hope you surround yourself with wonderful people who believe in your dreams and support you in all you decide to pursue. I hope you smash your goals and surprise yourself with how powerful and capable you truly are. I hope you find good health, an abundance of love, great luck, and all of the great things you deserve.


Happy new year, everyone!
