Reflect on the Year That is Ending
Reflect on the year that is ending. It’s time to take stock of all that has transpired. Look back at each month and recall the triumphs, milestones, challenges, and unfinished business of the year. This is where a journal of the year becomes even more valuable.
What Goals Were Accomplished?
Pay attention to the goals that you set at the beginning of this year. Did you accomplish what you set out to achieve? If so, take a moment of gratitude to acknowledge yourself for what it took to make that happen.
What Goals Were Not Met?
If your goals were not met, ask yourself why? Rather than a severe judgment, look at it as if you’re a scientist in the laboratory. What interfered with the achievement of your goals? As you reflect, consider whether your goals were realistic or too ideal. Did health issues get in the way? Was it different plans, relationships, or the challenges of others that took you off course? Reflect and evaluate.
Did You Remain Balanced?
Even if you achieved some major goals, ponder at what cost to you? Did you compromise other areas of your life in an unbalanced way? If you were able to meet your own expectations and stay in balance, recall what you did to keep your immune system strong, your physical body well fed and rested, and your expense or reserve of energy intact.
Your Goals For 2018
Let yourself begin to dream about your goals for 2018. What elements worked in your favor this year that you’d like to keep? What changes do you need or want to implement?
For this week’s Enchanted Breath, quiet yourself for a few moments. Take deep and cleansing breaths in and exhale in a rush of release. Clear space in your mind to connect with your deepest desires, to reflect, and then create a vision of your life the way that you want it to be. Imagine it and schedule the actions you’ll need to take in order to make it a reality.
Enchanted Breaths are the “ahh, the haha, and the aha! of life.”
