How to Move Past Hiccups, Detours, Rough Roads and Roadblocks
As we edge closer towards the end of the year and the end of a decade(!) it’s a great time to start reviewing the year that’s been and begin to release anything that’s not served us so well.
Through the hiccups, detours, rough roads and roadblocks there is always learning. We can gather this information to help us to clarify what we’d like to leave behind and what we’d like to welcome more of going forward.
It’s also a wonderful time of year to celebrate the wins!!
How often do we weed out the wins and focus all of the wonderful accomplishments for the year?
There’s always something we can feel proud of, be grateful for and celebrate – big or small, there’s ALWAYS something.
Once we start to focus on what went well and those wins scattered throughout, we soon start to realise there’s more than we first anticipated! It’s a wonderful way to expand that sense abundance and welcome those warm fuzzies.
And lastly, it’s a wonderful time to start thinking about some new goals and desires going forward.
Sometimes it doesn’t even have to be a big, hairy, audacious goal, it might be a matter of simply deciding how you want to feel and choosing a word that encompasses that. Whether it’s – contented, energised, positive, valued, joyful, thriving, accomplished or peaceful – choose a word that resonates for you.
Create the space to map out your vision, get excited about the possibility of a new year and what it can offer.
