This is the month that it is the darkest time of the year (in the northern hemisphere, that is). It’s dark, cold, and our instinct is to go inside, cozy up by the fire, hibernate … and it’s the perfect time to go within yourself as well and be reflective.
One tool I use to be reflective is to fill out my Year In Review (I know that is not a sexy name, if you have any sexier suggestions, please send them my way. I’m considering … “Signýficant Questions”). Each year I send it out to others (some of you will have received it in the past) and get great feedback about the questions and reflection it encourages. Sign up here if you want to a peek into my world and to get to read what I come up with when I fill in my Year In Review for 2015. And of course some of you are already signed up. It’ll come out mid-December.
For those of you who aren’t as witchy as I am, and so you’re not tying you ship to the solstice … the modern adaptation of this reflection has become New Year’s resolutions. So this will still apply to you!
How can you decide what to resolve in the new year if you don’t reflect on the past? Some of the broad topics we cover include: highlights, breakthroughs, challenges, and learnings for the year we are leaving, as well as dreams, stretches, and specific areas of your life where you want to choose Fully Alive in the year coming up.
I encourage you to please download my tool and fill it in. This reflection is a process for the month, almost like an advent calendar of change. As you’re doing this, if you start wondering how on earth I’m going to get everything done, tune in next week where we’re going to talk about how to choose the changes to make.
Ok, over to you:
After you have filled it in, let us know … what are your biggest lessons of 2015?
