2017: The Year of the Rooster
With the chance for new beginnings and a clean slate, I love this time of year because we are all so motivated to do it all! My NUFit classes are rocking and my students energy is electric ... it's a time I look forward to every year. I find myself wanting to create new concepts, collaborate with new people and go for things that I didn't think of in years past. It's funny how that "clean slate" mentality gets in your blood and really pushes you.
During this time, I love to look at the Chinese Zodiac to see what we have in store for us this year. 2017 is the year of the Fire Rooster, considered to be honorable and upstanding. The year 2017 is a year dominated by the orientation towards progress, honor and maximum integrity. The motto for the year of the Rooster 2017 is "keep it simple and don't take offense at the slightest provocation." Ummm ... ok, I like hearing that integrity is a top theme for 2017.
After all is said and done to me the New Year means that we have 365 days to create whatever life we want! That's really the beauty and spirit behind a new calendar year. This year I am focused on laying down roots, investing in my team, learning new skills, spending time exploring new places in the West and, lastly, kicking-ass in Business. I am excited to see what the year of the Rooster has in store for us. Bring on the Rooster!
