Here is an exercise I do to celebrate the ending of a year and the beginning of a new one. I already shared it in a previous post about giving gratitude for the year [birthday post link].
Now, how do I prepare for the New Year?
I read a book, One Word that Will Change Your Life, a few years back and began incorporating that into my New Year tradition. I take the last two weeks of the year and reflect on what all I've done. I then begin to explore what I would like to come to fruition in the New Year.
I ask deep questions like, If I want success, what does that mean for me? I write down what comes to mind and I keep reflecting. As I journal and reflect, and walk, and reflect, I continue bringing up, What one word would I want to represent the year coming up?
It takes time, it takes reflection, it takes courage to really examine what it is you would like to see come to light.
So, are you ready to begin?
Go on take the leap and if nothing else, read the book, One Word that Will Change Your Life, and dip your toes into the next adventure!
I am here to help you dive deeper and explore your journey. We all need and benefit from having someone come along with us. Let me be your guide on this journey called Life.
I want to share a tradition I have every year.
It falls on my birthday.
For the past eight years, I have given gifts to others on my birthday. I felt that it was my way of giving back and celebrating the fact that I was a gift for my parents. I'm adopted and my birth mom was able to give me an opportunity to have a life. What a great gift that was!
I felt the only way to truly celebrate and honor this gift was to pay it forward. This year, I am doing a fun gift. I am gifting a vision board night to some friends in my home. I am also connecting with others who are too far away and inviting them in to the celebration virtually.
What rituals do you have to celebrate your special day?
