As each new year begins, I must admit, a sense of excitement begins to accelerate my adrenaline and an unwavering, steely determination prompts me to become obdurately convinced that the upcoming year will be full of amazing successes.
Bolstered partly by my annual practice of reflecting back on the past year and making a list of valuable lessons learned, successes accomplished and memories created, I can’t help but have faith that 2014 is full of riches to be experienced and enjoyed so long as we are clear about our destination and resolute in our efforts to succeed.
The upcoming year on The Simply Luxurious Life blog will be guided by the mantra, “Yes You Can“ because you know what, you can. You really can make your dreams come true. You really can cultivate the life of your dreams. You really can make it happen, and it is my hope that this blog will provide inspiration, tips and guidance on how to turn your resolutions/goals into reality.
In January and February the blog will focus on building a solid foundation from which whatever you’ve resolved to accomplish as you build your simply luxurious life will be ever more feasible. Over the next two months, Monday and Wednesday posts will revolve around one or more of the following focal points:
- Create a rich and rewarding life
- Start living healthy today
- Establish intelligent style
- Create a simply luxurious home
The entire premise of creating a simply luxurious life is to focus on quality rather than quantity so that what you cherish most can be experienced and savored more deeply.
You are the maestro of your orchestra, in other words your life. And so long as you strengthen the necessary components and remove what is leading your life off course, an amazing euphoric sound will be crafted.
But here’s the key. You must be willing to seek out the answers, work hard for what you desire, have the courage to stand up for what you value and then, and only then, will your orchestra play more harmoniously than you’ve ever imagined possible.
As you sit down to write your goals or resolutions for 2014, consider keeping the list to 3-5 over-arching objectives. Use the list below to perhaps help you decide on the course of action you want to take.
This year I would like to share three of the handful of resolutions I have written down. Throughout the year on the blog I will share my progress and what I have learned along the way. It is my hope that at the same time, you too will share your progress and successes. Here’s what I will be focusing on:
With each of these, I will reveal the specific goal when it has been reached or attempted to the best of my ability. I’m determined to make each a reality, and it is my hope that you too will dream big and boldly when it comes to writing down your goals/resolutions as well. For it has been my experience that we often underestimate what we are capable of and in so doing are delightedly surprised with the results and life we didn’t at first believe we could create for ourselves.

So, as we all begin fine tuning our most amazing simply luxurious life, I wanted to share a composition that recently has been my regular source of inspiration as I contemplated where I want to go in 2014 as well as a glance at just a few of the upcoming topics that will be shared and examined here on the blog:
Become your own brand
Shoes – a key investment
