SO it’s New Years, Again!!!! This year seemed to fly by as usual and it’s time to reassess our lives, figure out our goals for the coming year and remember all the “stuff” that happened this past year that made us laugh, made us cry and made us who we are. Some people only tend to focus on the good things that happened, some only the bad. I say look at everything, for “everything” is what shapes us and makes us grow. It helps to stay away from those “good-bad” labels too. I always feel if we can learn and grow from any circumstance, we are a better person for it.
Awareness is always a first step into change for our future. It allows us to see opportunities to change behaviors and to be the person we want to be. How we deal with conflict, how we deal with adversity, how we react when someone hurts or angers us. All these things can provide insight into who we are. If we are willing to have an honest talk with ourselves and do some self examination, we can discover new strengths and change what we don’t like in ourselves and celebrate the awesomeness that we do like.
Ask yourself if you need to change any behaviors to handle situations differently. Do you need to address others in any way, make amends or express your true feelings? Be more proactive and decisive when it comes to uncomfortable situations? Work less to spend more time with family? Work more to handle that large debt or curve spending habits? Spend more time being thankful for what you have instead of wanting what you don’t have? Tell those you love that you love them…everyday. Reassess that relationship with “that” person – you know the one. The one that never makes you feel good and always makes you doubt yourself, keeps you walking on eggshells, is a total chore to be around because they are so draining? Is it time to move on? Do you need to be more kind, less judgmental? Do you need to take time away from everyone to chill and focus on you?
There are so many things to review in a year, but here is a great thing to do to help with the assessment. Fill an empty Jar with all the things thathappen in the year. Come New Years, pull all the notes out and review them. It’s an awesome way to remember the year and I’m going to do this in 2014. Thanks Facebook friends for sharing this tidbit!
So in closing, I want to wish everyone a great New Year. And remember, The start of a New Year is always a chance for new beginnings, but EVERY DAY is also a chance to start anew! We hold our world in our hands…… it’s all in the handling of each situation and each moment.
Peace, Love and Prosperity!
