So 2014 is nearly here. How are you feeling about the New Year? Hopeful? Excited? Uncertain?

Me? I’m feeling expectant. As in, I’m expecting a lot of 2014. I’m expecting great health, wonderful relationships, fabulous career progression and successful achievement of my goals.

I’ve been working hard in 2013. I’ve done LOTS of research into health. I’ve done LOTS of experimenting around my (and my family’s) health and nutrition. I’ve put LOTS of new healthy habits into practice and I’ve rid myself of LOTS of old not-so healthy habits.

So 2013 was a big year. I did a lot of learning. And you know what – I feel good. I feel healthier. I feel like I understand and respect my body more. I feel like I’m finally on the right track with my health and wellbeing. I feel like I’m seriously moving towards the person I want to be. The role model I want to be for my two amazing daughters. And I can’t wait to get there.

So, yes, I’m expecting great things from 2014.  I’m not wishing or hoping – I’m EXPECTING them to happen. I’m not saying this to sound cocky, and I’m not suggesting that great things should happen to me just because I want them. What I’m saying is – I’ve put in the hard yards.  I’ve laid all the groundwork in 2013. And in 2014, it’s time to reap what I’ve sown.

How about you? What groundwork did you do in 2013 – what amazing things are you expecting in 2014?
