12 Reminders for My Happy New Year!

It's the second day of a shiny new year!  I hope that wherever you are in the world, you've had a fun, festive and happy celebration.  Wishing all my lovely readers, friends, family and bloggers a magical and fantastic 2015. Thank you from the bottom of my heart to everyone who bought one of my books, for all your love, enthusiasm, messages, reviews, shares, laughter and support during the last year.  I appreciate every single one of you.  Thank you!

I've had an incredible 2014, smiled through the highs and cried through the lows.  All in all it was a great year and I embrace the new year with a bright smile and open arms.

My goal this year (besides finishing my next book, The Keepers: Ethan!) is to take better care of myself - emotionally, mentally and physically.  Because if I'm not in top form, nothing else in my life is.  And I kinda like top form, you know?

So here's a few reminders I've printed out and pinned on my office wall - just in case I get sidetracked during the year!

1.  Get enough sleep - the world is always a better place after a snooze

2.  Eat well - your body is your magical carpet ride.  Treat it with care.

3.  Exercise - because you can't afford not to.  (Time for me to take this one seriously.  Really!!!)

4.  Keep a positive mind - it resonates in everything you do. One negative thought often gives rise to another - and another and all too soon you're on a rollercoaster of misery.

5. Laugh - because it IS the best medicine.  And it's fun.

6.  Worry less - and only worry about things you have to.  Most of the things we worry about don't materialise anyway.
7.  Be thoughtful - to those close to you, to strangers, colleagues ... nothing feels nicer than doing something nice for someone else.  (And there's that crazy little thing called Karma!)

8.  Keep a closed door - to drama, violence, negative thoughts, and anything that makes you feel icky or brings you down. 

9.  Keep an open door - to love, opportunities, friendship, help, happiness, special moments.

10.  Embrace happiness - make it a habit, welcome happy moments and relish in them.

11.  Be yourself - be the person you want to be, not the person you (or others) think you should be.

12.  Define your own worth - and don't let anyone undermine it.  Know it, guard it, treasure it, hold your head high. Your quantity of friends, popularity or followers on social media does NOT define who you are, how popular you are or how much you're loved.  Ever.  It's all about quality.  (And I'm a quality type of girl!)

Happiest New Year!

With love,
Rae Rivers
