We are now in the second half of December and it is time to start saying goodbye to 2016. If you have been with me a while, you know I’ll be glad to see the back of it. I finished 2015 on a high and I believed in bigger things for me in 2016, but as soon as it started, it was clear this year had other plans for me.
I said yes to something that exhausted me in January whilst delivering a new online course, was shaken by two unexpected deaths, had a few health issues, Brexit, and I am not mentioning all the other things that go wrong when you are having a tough time. You know how that goes… When it rains, it pours!
One thing I know for sure though is that, even when you can’t wait to see the end of a year, you have to take the time to examine it and extract the lessons that it brought. I don’t have big achievements to celebrate but I am looking forward to taking stock of the growth I experienced this year.
This is the reason why we need to review the year every December. The same questions will bring different answers every year. Some will be worth exploring a bit further one year and others another year. If you haven’t signed up for Honouring Your Story yet, I highly encouraged you to. It’s free and it’s an opportunity to spend some time journalling and focusing on yourself during a period often spent thinking of others and rushing.We are starting on Monday and it is important work, especially if you have specific goals for 2017.
I will be spending the rest of the month focusing on this shared journey and laying the foundations for 2017. This is not a luxury that would be nice to do if we have time. Dismissing it is the reason why so many New Year’s resolutions never get fulfilled. This is essential work if we want to create a life that brings us joy, serenity and a sense of achievement. We must make it a priority.
Don’t miss out on the valuable lessons that come out of an end of year review!
