New Year, New You? I think not.

New Year, New You? What about New Year, More You? Not a changed you or a different you. Just a more intense and connected you? More YOU than ever before.

For 2022, I invite you on a journey. A journey to know yourself. You may have already started this journey, or you may be just starting out.

When you start out, it’s hard. I know. I resisted holding up a mirror and seeing my bare self for many years - even when I thought I was being honest with myself, I see now that I was afraid to go there.

Being more you means going inwards to understand who you really are. Not who you pretend to be, not who others think you are, but who you are without any mask.

By developing self awareness with an intrigued curiosity you can reveal who you really are underneath the layers of self-protection - these layers that have developed over the years to keep you safe and secure.

But the reward is like finding a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow - a freedom of self, where you settle into the comfort of knowing who you are and that whatever you are, that is ok. In fact, it’s more than ok. It’s a beautiful thing - a gift that keeps on giving.

Along my own journey, I’ve learnt that there is no ‘new you’. There is only MORE YOU. A more intense you. A more comfortable you. A more accepting and self loving you.

> By undercovering your limiting beliefs (those that have stood in your way and held you back) one by one, you can move beyond their power

> By understanding your values you reveal what makes you tick, what gives you meaning and purpose

> By owning your personal needs, you truly understand how to be at your best. You can communicate these to others and learn to fulfil your own needs

> By allowing yourself to be the truest form of you - without the people pleasing, without apologising for simply being, without explanation, without excuses or justification - you can feel comforted by knowing that you are enough.

As you discover more about your inner self, your true self, you accept yourself more fully. You create boundaries. You live in harmony with all the beautiful parts of you.

The New You already exists. It’s just waiting to be seen. It’s the YOU that is so deeply you, it takes a lifetime to explore and learn and know. Shine a light on yourself this year.

If you would like to start the most fulfilling journey you could embark on, and would like support and guidance along the way, get in touch.


I look forward to seeing more of YOU in 2022.

Happy New Year.

Love, Gemma x
