A reflective guide for the year
How are you feeling as 2023 draws to a close?
Relieved? Optimistic? Motivated? Excited? Overwhelmed?
December and January aren’t always the most natural times to plan for me. Don’t get me wrong, I like hunkering down with pretty lights, blankets and a fire but finding the energy and momentum to consider the future (a whole 12 months of it) often feels daunting and exhausting! I’m naturally more of a spring planner or a September one. That’s when my plans take shape and I feel sufficiently ambitious to invite stretch and optimism into my year.
Having said that, I absolutely appreciate the benefits that reflection, mindfulness and being intentional bring in the wintertime: feeling grateful even amid extreme difficulties, learning from and appreciating our journeys, honouring our connections and being present.
My gentle guide invites you to reflect on the year gone by, acknowledge what is present for you now and consider how you may wish to shape 2024.
- What inspired you in 2023?
- What are you grateful for?
- Where will you focus your energy in 2024?
- How will you create and communicate your boundaries?
Wishing you a peace and joy for the new year.
