Making 2019 Your Best Year

These are my 5 grandchildren. Three of them live far away on an island in the Pacific. Our families met up together in March last year in Fiji so I had the pure joy of hanging out with them. It was wild at times because they were all under the age of 4. And I was smiling the entire time. Even now I smile, thinking about that trip. 

Lucky, lucky me. Had I not planned or anticipated this trip, it would not have happened. But I found a way because it was super important to me to be around these 5 cuties.

What I want to ask you is, what fun things do you have planned for yourself this year? What are you planning that will bring you joy? 

Take the leap and decide you're going to choose this to be a great year. Your best year. 

For me, I’m planning on lots of travel and keeping things simpler, spending more time enjoying the people I love.

And being less frenetic than last year.

I was so hyper focused on getting my Ageless Wisdom and Passion online retreat launched, that by the end of the year, I was exhausted, depleted, and wiped out. I pushed myself way too hard.

I came to a grinding halt at the end of the year.  I was very proud but worn out.

This year I want to choose a different way. 

I want to be more like my 2 granddaughters who have fun together... they laugh a lot and play. I imagine they will grow up to really support each other. 

But without a plan or intention, I know that my 2019 is not going to happen the way I want.  I will go back to default mode of pushing too hard.

I need a coach, a support system, a group of people for ideas and accountability. And I want that for you, too. 


I thought about it and I came up with 3 things you can do:

  1. Take your calendar out and put in all the special dates for 2019. Things you want to celebrate, your vacations, holidays, birthdays. (Even if you don’t know exactly what it is, put it on the calendar anyway.) This is important that you make joy a priority. 
  1. Think about how you’d like to feel at the end of 2019. What will bring you joy? What do you really want to do?  What will make 2019 the best ever for you? You can make it happen. 
  1. Deal with overwhelm by just focusing 3 things. What would be the 3 most important things you want to happen this month, this year, this week? Don’t try to do this all in one go. Dream a little. What would make your life easier? Maybe it’s getting rid of the clutter, maybe having a plan for how you will deal with your finances, or stop over scheduling, or even giving yourself permission to do what you want. 

If you'd like a very fun additional way to be intentional about your year and make it your best one, then join us this Sunday, January 6.

Here's what my good friend and coach, Helene Van Manen, said about my retreat:

"Jo Hatcher’s Best Year Ever will open insights and inspiration to guide your year. Jo is an expert at asking the right questions and unlocking the dream within you that will make a difference and how you move into 2019. I took the class last Sunday and the format, the group of women, the exercises, the questions we journaled on gave me so much value in crafting both my business and personal life going forward. Take this class if you want to do something really nurturing for yourself."
