Make Your Life Amazing 2012

...it’s back! In 2010, as many of you know, we spent the 31 days of January striving to make our lives amazing. At the beginning of 2011 I put all the posts together so that you could complete the programme alone, but this year I think it’s time we all came together again!

Over the first four fabulous weeks of 2012, I will be initiating you into the wonder that is: your own amazing life. That’s right! Every single day of January 2012 I will be posting an uplifting, enlightening, inspirational article – that’s thirty-one articles altogether. Phew-ee.

I will be posting all the original articles right here on the blog, along with my very own journal entries, with a few tweaks, surprises and extras along the way! And it’s all totally free, baby.

The articles featured will include:
♥ How to Reclaim Your True Individuality
♥ Getting to Know Your Productive Self
♥ Improve Your Life by Playing a Character
♥ Take Yourself on a Creative Date
♥ How to Find and Follow Your Bliss

Each article will be made up of three parts:

A foundational, inspirational idea to get you thinking
A summary for straightforward development
An item of ‘homework’ to undertake if you’re really serious about that amazing life

Here’s what you had to say the first time around:

"If it doesn't help Make Your Life Amazing, I will eat my hat."
Neysa, reader and MYLA participant.

"I can't possibly say how much I loved the MYLA posts. They've been amazing, such a good start of this year."
Greta, reader and MYLA participant.

"It made me really stop and think about what I have, and what I want from life."
Fee, reader and MYLA participant.

What a wonderful bunch!
.............................................................................................................................

I can tell you that I really need MYLA this year – 2011 has tossed me around a treat and I’ve been left feeling a little dazed to say the least. I think this will be the perfect way for me to get some clarity and direction back, to make 2012 (two-thousand and swell) a year to remember.

Are you in?

If you would like to spread the love, I give you free reign to repost the whole 31 days at your whim through whatever medium you choose – just be sure to credit me and the blog with a link. You can also share this cute little button I whipped up:



PLUS all participants who leave a comment on this first post will be entered to win one of FIVE FREE COPIES of the Ambitious Happiness eCourse, which I will announce at the end of the month. That way you can continue your journey to joy and delight into 2012 and beyond!

See you here January 1st to get cracking on your own personal existence upgrade. (Swanky new journals optional, but you know I’m using my Rob Ryan one.) I honestly CAN’T WAIT!

Ooh! I love you! *Entry for eCourse please*

I starting doing MYLA when I became single again as a bit of a motivational boost and it worked wonders. Honestly, it's like the New Year's motivational buzz has been bottled for whenever you need it.

Louise from 'The Book' said...

exciting! i love the promise a new year holds :)

Megan said...

Amber - Now there's a testimonial if ever I heard one! :D Looks like you've had a head start on the rest of us... I'll have to whip up a few new bits here and there to keep you engaged. Can't believe you've got the button up already on All That Glitters too - you are magic ♥ ♥

Claire - Yay! The more will most definitely make the merrier :)

Louise - You and me both, sister! It makes me feel somehow reignited, and journalling of any type is such a good way to 'check in' with yourself and be sure your heading for the kind of year you want.

Haz said...

Loved the original, can't wait for MYLA 2012, I'm at a bit of a crossroads in my life at the moment, so it's exactly what I need :)

*Ditto on the eCourse entry for me please* :)

Nurul Izz said...

I love your MYLA posts, Megan! I just did mine last October and I felt good! I hope I can do it again for 2012! :)

Lovely Undergrad - Jessica Hansen said...

This sounds amazing! I'll definitely be joining in! Besides being a new year, this'll truly be a fresh start for me in a new apartment with new roommates, new semester, and more! I can't wait for MYLA to start! :)

Valerie said...

I did this that first year! I can't wait. :) Now I just have to search for just the right journal for this.

Rona Mae said...

How very exciting~! :D You writing always encourages me to continually work on all aspects of myself as a person. Thank you very much and cheers to another wonderful year for you!

krissy ♥ said...

This is so exciting, I can't wait! You are amazing ♥

Megan said...

Haz - Yes! You're entered! And I know the feeling of being stuck at a crossroads - the key is to get excited about the direction you're going to take, and hopefully MYLA will be the perfect way for us both to do that :)

Nurul - I'm so glad you've enjoyed the posts, time to get working hard again, but this time with a bit of friendly support!

Jessica - Ooh I do love a bit of 'new' - it's always exciting! I've been suffering with a bit TOO much new, and a kind of new that I didn't choose, but that doesn't mean I'm not going to seriously rock it in the new year ;) Thanks for joining in ♥

Valerie - (Beautiful name!)The journal has got to be just right, it's all about the stationary! :D Thanks for taking part again - hopefully you'll gain some new insights this time around.

Rona Mae - Thanks to YOU for getting involved, I'm so glad your taking so much from the blog ♥

Krissy - YOU ARE AMAZING ♥ (this comment list is great - it's like a 'who can show the most love' battle! I want to win because you're all so wonderful!)

Eleanor said...

I like this idea. In fact I like anything that involves change, I can understand you mean about life bringing you changes which you didnt expect, but think like a mountain, regardless of the weather you still stand strong.

I think the main focus for me needs to be progress. I want development in every sense of the word: physically, spiritual and mental.

I already which projects to work on and have started laying the foundation while I am off work to get a head start. I want to get ahead, you know that feeling in school when you had your homework done, or you had read that little bit extra it put you ahead of the class. It is empowering, so rather than opting to veg out infront on the TV I have set myself some goals this winter hols. 10 days are not much, but alot can still be done.

To me and everyone, lets forge ahead.

Count me in.

So excited for this. I was actually thinking about your M.Y.L.A 2010 series, which I read as it progressed, but didn't participate in. I was planning on starting it in January, but now I will be focusing on the 2012 series. Thank you!

This sounds really promising, just what I need. I've come across this page this week which already gave me an uplift. Surely I can need more positivity in my life.

I just discovered your blog, and I am obsessed! I have been doing nothing but reading old posts and getting more and more excited. I can't wait to get a notebook and start your MLYA 2012 workshop! I have noticed that my life is dull and boring with me just going on auto-pilot, and I am tired of it. So here's to a new year and a new AMAZING life!

Thanks!

Cara said...

I'm going to dig out that notebook I got last Christmas that has pictures from magazines in the I like and use some of those pages for this. So excited!

Hi. I'm new and a bit late in joining. I'm really excited for this and so far so good! You have an amazing blog, and I can't wait to read more! I hope you manage to make your life even more amazing, because mine looks better already! So thank you for this!

All the best,
Ana

Leana said...

Hi Megan,

I know I'm really late, but I didn't take part last year because I was late and regretted it all year! Now that my exams are finished, I'm determined to take part.

I've put your button on my (very new and mostly empty) blog, which is where I'm hoping to do my homework since then I'll feel accountable.

Thanks for all the thought you put into MYLA and your site in general.

Sam S. said...

I have been following along with the series & love it!

This is my eCourse entry :)

Stephybabes said...

I think your series has been pretty awesome in that it has explicitly showcased certain features of life that we all want; certain things that are hard to put on paper, that are hard to plan, but essentially can and need to be in order to create that amazing life!
Congrats on sticking to your plan and posting every day!
