“Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing himself.” – Leo Tolstoy

We all want to see change in the world, especially at Christmas, but deep down we all know that if we want to change OUR world it has to start with us, - our home, our work place and our own persona.

And remember we are working towards giving the best of “ourselves” as a gift for those we care about. Sound self- absorbed? Not when we consider this. - How we act towards those we live and work with can be very powerful. 

Hopefully we’ve all been continuing our spring cleaning, de-cluttering and energizing - getting our homes, businesses and selves, in as good order as we can. Hopefully this exercise has also enabled you to bond as a family, focusing on team work and respecting and valuing one another. 

So let’s look at our goal again; - “To be the best we can be for Christmas” To be more thoughtful, cheerful, sharing, caring, helpful to all we come in contact with. It is alot easier to be all of the above when we feel good about ourselves, - thus the spring cleaning, organising and energizing is well worth the effort, as it all helps us to be Happier Healthier and Stronger.

How did you go with iKi SRL @ Home? Have you signed up yet? Remember it is a great way to energise as a family whilst accessing valuable behaviour strategies and goals that benefit the whole family and help keep harmony and peace.. which I am sure you will agree we could do with some more of around here lately! So, if you haven’t signed up yet, that’s ok – click here to sign up now. Get it organised so you can implement over the holiday break and kick start the new year feeling calm and confident as a family.

What have we done so far to set up a great holiday period and what do we need to do to ensure it actually happens? This afternoon finish what we need to do to close off the week, then check that we are organized for next week. Next, note the things we HAVE to do on the weekend and what we WANT to get done. Remember, there are some things we need to do, - to maintain our livelihoods, families, health and so on, and there are things we want to do. These can be almost as important, such as social, community and sporting events, hobbies, family fun. Lets’ make sure there is a bit of both (needs and wants) this weekend.

Real pleasure comes from things we work for, and real peace of mind comes from knowing that we are giving attention to all of the important areas in our lives. And remember that we are human so let’s be fair to ourselves about what is achievable- about what actually is our "best".

The past few years have been hard for many of us. For myself, as well as many friends and acquaintances, it has been the most challenging period of our lives and there were times we struggled to maintain faith in the future. But when we look around we see that we have many blessings. We're still standing people. And where there's life there's hope.

So now let’s continue to take the steps to make this Christmas truly a season of goodwill.
This weekend I'll be wining and dining my hubby for his birthday, going for a family bike ride and doing some organising in readiness for the opening of ‘iKi Central’ next Wednesday 9th December. If you are in Dubbo – why not pop in and say hi and see what we have in store for our community next year. Click here to download the official invitation. 

Hope to see some of you there - to the rest of you – have an awesome week!

Active Amy.
