It’s always good to take a moment and reflect. To take a moment and be still. To take a moment and exhale and inhale. Release and receive. And there’s no more appropriate time to take that moment than now, on the cusp of the New Year. Taking time and space to reflect on our experiences in 2013, on who and what was important… a long moment to think about what was significant about those people and those experiences and about what felt right and wrong. And the why… why something or someone felt right or wrong. Take a moment to forgive and to love. This sets a tone for the next year. Who do you want to be in 2014?
The impending new year forces most of us to reflect on the year that’s ending… how did we do in 2013? Did we accomplish what we wanted, behave with grace, do good work, find love, lose love, let go, forgive? In the interest of reflection and with the idea of setting ourselves up for success – happiness, health, and ease – I thought it would be fun to answer these 10 questions. 10 Questions about how we did in 2013 and what we want in 2014.
1. What did you create this year?
2. What can you do to improve your health in 2014?
3. What did you most enjoy in your work?
4. What was the best thing you learned in 2013?
5. When did you doubt yourself and why?
6. Who do you need to forgive?
7. When did you let fear run your life?
8. What was the theme of 2013 for you? What do you want the theme of 2014 to be?
9. What challenges did you face with courage and grace?
10. What new skill would you most like to learn this new year?
And one more to grow on…
11. What do you want to feel in 2014?
(For instance, I want to feel interested, energized, inspired, validated, supported, EASE, magical, ageless.)
