We only have a couple of weeks left in 2013 and I’m sure that like me, you’ve had some highs and some lows over the last year.
I’ve found a great way to move into the New Year in an empowered and inspired way is to answer a few key questions about the last 12 months. You may like to save this email or jot down the following questions and then when you find some quiet time during the festive season, grab a cuppa, curl up somewhere quiet and write down your thoughts
Below you’ll find some simple questions that will support you in this process…
- What did I achieve over the last 12 months that I’m proud of?
- What am I grateful for in 2013?
- What did I learn about myself?
- What worked really well in the last year that I would like to bring forward into the coming year?
- What didn’t work so well?
- How could I do things differently to improve this/these situations?
- What am I letting go of or forgiving myself or others for, that will set me free from the past?
- How would I like to feel in 2014?
- What do I want to achieve in 2014?
You may like to write about a day in your life in your upcoming year. Write it in present tense, stipulating how you’ll feel, what you’ll be doing and whom you’re with, etc. If you’re unsure how you’d like your year to unfold, you could simply state comments like: new and exciting opportunities come my way; I meet extraordinary people; I get really clear about what I want and take the steps to achieve my goals…
Write it as if it’s already happening and add the things you’d love to have and be.
Read it each day, getting into the feeling of how this reality will be for you.
Make sure the words you use are positive, uplifting and make you feel fabulous.
Enjoy this wonderful season and, as Jada Pinkett Smith mentioned on fb the other day…
‘This Xmas I’ve decided to give more time to people I love by planning hikes and outings with friends and family. I’ve decided to give more allowance, patience and overall care to those I love in specific areas where that attention is needed. These are the gifts I believe can change lives and solidify bonds that last a lifetime.
Don’t forget… this Xmas… YOU are the gift!’
