Hello and, I know it’s more than half way through January but, Welcome to 2016!

It’s been a while since I’ve written a blog post.

I kinda got busy and out of my routine at the end of 2015. So I made a decision to just go with the flow for the remainder of the year.

let go of what I thought I ‘should’ do and allowed myself some time to just to finish off 2015 in a calm, joyful way – for the most part! Time with some family and close friends was special. And as 2016 began I started planning for the year ahead.

New Years resolutions haven’t been my thing for many many years. However, I do find the beginning of the year is a great time to revise goals and set new ones, but this is something I do throughout the year as well.

In addition to setting some personal and business goals for 2016 I really thought about what I wanted more of, what I wanted less of and, of course, my guiding word for the year ahead. In the past I’ve chosen 3 words but this year it came down to just one, which you’ve probably guessed is LOVE.

2016::More, Less + Love

So I thought I’d share my MORE and LESS list with you. I’m sure I’ll be adding to it as the year progresses. For now it’s simple. A little softness for my soul. A gentle reminder to be me.


  • LOVE
  • gratitude
  • self-care
  • time with Andrew
  • going out
  • meeting people who are on my wavelength
  • cooking yummy food
  • listening
  • reading (biz and non biz books)
  • appreciating the beauty that surrounds me
  • moving my body and enjoying it
  • decisiveness
  • doing



  • focus on what could go wrong
  • doing things that don’t bring me joy
  • time with people who just don’t get me
  • worrying
  • indecisiveness
  • distractions
  • procrastination
  • complicating things


And that’s how I came to choose my Guiding Word for 2016


There are so many words I could have chosen this year. Right at the top of the list were consistency, persistence, visibility, expansion, confidence…and more. But it all comes back to LOVE.

Love for myself.

Love for family.

Love for my friends.

Love for my work.

Love for all things non work.

Love for all things that bring me joy.

LOVE is the foundation for all that I do and all that I desire to do.

LOVE is my theme, my guide, my teacher and my purpose for 2016.

How did you kick off the New Year?

Do you have a guiding word, a personal goal, a plan for your career this year?

In health and happiness, Dee xxx
