Gung Hay Fat Choy!

“Let the lunar new year inspire you to embrace a fresh start.”

The Chinese New Year begins on February 10 and ends with the lantern festival on February 24. The year of the dragon will be ushered in, the fifth sign of the Chinese zodiac.

Dragons are strong and independent and are often energetic and charismatic. Many see them as natural leaders.

If you’re prone to celebrating holidays, the timing of this one is that if you feel you didn’t get it right on January 1, you have a chance to start again.

We’re already over one month into 2024, so stop, take a breath, and assess where things stand. Has your year launched the way that you wanted? Are you on track with fulfilling your goals? Are you implementing the things you committed to?

If you’re not where you want to be, commit to start fresh and move forward.

If things haven’t been going according to plan, you need to assess what has gone wrong and why. Did you set overly ambitious goals or did you start on the wrong path?

It’s important for you to have clarity about your priorities; then let them guide your actions. If something resides high on your priority list but you always avoid doing it, reconsider why it’s a priority and whether it even belongs on your list.

So on that note, Gung Hay Fat Choy, or “Best wishes and congratulations…have a prosperous and good year.”
