Oaths to healthier eating, increased savings or simply doing more for others may comprise the endless slew of social media-pronounced resolutions annually plaguing web ways come January 1, but there’s more to meet the inaugurating eye than cliche e-vows alone.

Survive and thrive: a year in summarized saga
December signified an end of transition, with January now kickstarting the series of next pivotal steps forward.
A la Mystic Mamma, our monthly motif boils down to resetting. Manifesting unconscious thoughts into cognizant action, we must pull emotional weeds from the past to rid what no longer serves us. Steve and his Apple empire can dream, but our energetic capacity doesn’t work quite like the Cloud.

Carving one’s way requires defying the laws of comfort. Logically pushing the edge and taking certain strategic risks can be the breakthrough portal to turning a whirlwind of previously verging potential into reality at last.
Always a must are truth and trust as we dive into this dazzling new year ahead, so make it a point to stay out of your own way when it’s hindering things that can so excellently be.
