The older I get, the more I feel like time is just flying by. Sometimes I feel like there are so many good moments to enjoy and so many difficult ones to learn from and grow from, and yet, I can’t seem to slow down enough to really take stock.
That’s why, over the last few years, I’ve developed a very special New Year’s ritual, that grounds me in acceptance of what is and gives me clarity on what I want going forward.
Because I’m so committed to you getting the benefits of this ritual too, I developed a free, easy-to-follow workbook so that you can do the ritual too. (This is an updated version of the one I shared last year, so feel free to get it again!) This workbook will only be available for free through midnight Eastern on January 2nd, so get yours now!
Here are the basics:
First, I make a gratitude list of all the things I’m grateful for that happened in 2012. It’s my way of digesting the year and remembering the good (and tough situations) that have come my way.
Next, I make desire lists of all the things I want in the coming year. I break this down into specific categories that I share with you in the workbook. This is my way of getting real clarity on my true desires, so that I can enjoy the process of manifesting them.
Then, last but not least, I list my intentions for 2013. These are the things that I’m committed to doing, changing and experiencing in 2013. These are different than the desire lists, and I explain that in the workbook.
Feel free to post your comments and let me know what you enjoyed about this process, what you’re grateful for, desiring or intending!
