Your Greatest Hits of 2018
Well, here we are.
Just about wrapping up 2018. I actually love this time of year as it feels as though there is a collective sigh, ready to slow down and wave goodbye to anything and everything that occurred the last few months.
This is a perfect time to reflect on the past year.
It’s so easy to want to swing forward and move right into future planning.
But in order for us to truly BE IN our lives and find real JOY in the present moment (one of my focuses in the year ahead), we must become more aware of all the aspects that make up our life.
Reflecting on the Past Year
With that, I wanted to share my process for reflecting on the past year.
It’s a powerful way to begin to unravel those things that brought you joy in the last 12 months and even the things that challenged you.
We must all look at where we succeeded and make sure we make time to celebrate those successes. Even if only celebrating them quietly to ourselves.
As we look at our challenges, we can discover WHY they were challenges and instead of just looking as those challenges as really big, frustrating mountains, maybe they offer something else.
Perhaps they have helped us gain new skills that make us even better, more powerful humans today.
Before I share my process, I want to remind you that it doesn’t matter whether or not you reached all your goals or not.
I always say, it’s not the ‘things’ we get that are the biggest rewards for accomplishing goals.
I believe the biggest reward is the person we had to become in striving for something new in our lives.
Because that is the person who gets to walk forward into the future to accomplish more wonderful things. Those attributes that you gained are yours forever. Nothing and no one can ever take that away from you. To me, this is the greatest gift of all.
This little process doesn’t take long, but its power is immense.
2019 is going to be our best year yet!
P.S. I do this ritual every year and in a way, it clears the slate so I can begin to dream for the year ahead. (If you are ready to start dreaming about the year ahead, you can still get the Magical Manifesters Bonus Workshop when you pre-order my book. It will help you do just that!)
