I love those who can smile in trouble, who can gather strength from distress, and grow brave by reflection. ‘Tis the business of little minds to shrink, but they whose heart is firm, and whose conscience approves their conduct, will pursue their principles unto death.
-Leonardo da Vinci
2016 has been quite the year, huh?
I’ve seen tons of transformation + transitioning collectively going on to help shake up stale patterns and crusty old beliefs to make room for what’s truly in alignment with your soul’s desire.
As we come to the close of 2016, I’ve been on a journey of reflection.
I’ve been taking time to thumb through my piles of notes and stacks of swipe files. I’ve been sorting through the lists of many scattered ideas and to-do’s. Along the way I’ve also been clearing out the clutter that fills my physical, mental, and emotional space.
There’s something symbolic that happens when we close out the calendar year and unwrap the plastic off your shiny new planner. (My personal go-to planner is the Desire Map from Danielle LaPorte.) There’s a sense of newness. A fresh chance to begin again. To try something new. To become more fully YOU.
Look at each year of your life as a chapter in your life lesson’s book.
What did you learn over this past year? What was the major theme?
It’s so important to take time to tune in with yourself to take responsibility of what’s going on in your life. Without asking these soul-searching questions, we never open the door for our Truth to come through.
Grab your journal and take time to reflect on these powerful questions:
What am I doing that is working well for my spiritual growth right now?
Where am I lacking in self-care?
What was my biggest celebration this year?
What do I want to create in 2017?
How will I make it happen?
Now that you’ve taken a little time to reflect on your journey, I invite you to take a peek of what’s been happening over here during the last year. This has been a year filled with growth + connection.
