Welcome to part one of a two part post (next one is tomorrow) on how to release 2014 so that you move forward into a new, fresh, vibrant new year with passion and eagerness.
Reflecting on our year is vital. It’s important in acknowledging the not so great things as well as the lovely things. It’s a reminder that each and every year has it’s ups and downs but ultimately, it’s about choosing to see it from a learning perspective. It’s also about helping us to move forward into a new year with a new perspective. Here are a few questions to get you started (I’ve answered them myself to give you an idea of how it works):
What happened this year that you could have dealt with better?
For me, this was about a few things. Namely, I could have been better at saying ‘No’ and I certainly could have been better at letting other people’s stress not affect my own sense of security. Just because people around me are concerned and stressed, it doesn’t mean that I too have to feel that way. I can choose to support them without taking it on for them.
What happened this year that you totally rocked at?
One of the things I worked on this year is my fear of flying and I took my longest flight to date to Thailand where I got to enjoy a fabulous holiday for my efforts. I was even pretty calm about being on a plane for so long.
What was the best thing that happened for you this year?
For me, this was definitely my beloveds proposal. After 12 years together, it was a beautiful surprise and I can’t wait to become his wife.
What did you learn this year that you can take forward into 2015?
I learnt that with faith, all things are possible. It might not seem like and easy thing to achieve and at times, it may seem impossible, but with dedication of mind, body and spirit towards your dreams, it’s totally possible.
Sum this learning up in one word: Possibilities!
Have a think about the above questions today and then tomorrow, I’m going to help you to set some intentions for 2015.
