We started the year looking at the 5 V’s – Vision, Values, Vehicles, Vocabulary, and Valuation. Hopefully, these gave you a jump start to 2024. Moving forward for the next few weeks we are going back in order to move forward at a more engaged pace. We will be taking the time to walk through the 5 P’s…
We live during a time when forgiveness has lost its way into our relationships. A time when someone MUST be right, and someone MUST be wrong. Peace in our culture will never happen until we respect, love, and forgive each other for any number of events of the past. We all make mistakes and forgiveness is the path to allowing us all to live successfully together.
Every 4 years we get an extra day to get the calendar back in sync with the celestial bodies of the universe. Another day of work or play depends on what day of the week it falls.

By placing limits on what is or is not being respectful has actually divided us and caused more disrespect than creating a world of respecting each other. Unconditional respect for each other goes further and deeper than placing artificial limits on what is or is not respectful.
Wrapping up January 2024 may present a level of disengagement. You may have given up on your New Year Eve resolutions. You might have fallen away from your goals and objectives. Do not choose to be disengaged. This information tells you that just maybe you had taken the wrong path. It is time to reassess a new and better way to get to your next better destination. Give yourself the privilege to change your direction but learn from both your past and present choices.

As you deal with the fear, anxiety and overwhelm of the start of the calendar year you may also experience frustration with yourself and others. Allow yourself to be first and foremost available to yourself so that you can shed your frustrations before engaging others. This will keep your relationship supportive while you navigate to a better mindset to tackle all the items tossed in your path.
