December is finally here. The weather has turned chilly and the thought of sitting by the fire with a hot beverage sounds incredibly inviting right now. I am noticing feeling more inwardly focused and it is absolutely appropriate at this time of year. The leaves have fallen and the plants are going dormant, ready to sleep for the year. Winter can be seen as a time for reflection and introspection. The year is closing and a new year is about to open. The time is now to start evaluating how things are going and how things have been. It is also time to start thinking about what you want to create for the new year. If you don’t plan it, chances are it won’t happen.
Here are some questions to start that process:
What have I done well this year, what can I celebrate?
What would I like to do better next year?
How can I make changes that will create my ideal living situation?
How can I make changes to help create more ideal relationships in my life?
How can I make my own self-care more of a priority?
How can I be of service to others?
What is my passion and am I pursuing it?
These are just some ideas. I invite you to use this time of hibernation to create space for all the wonderful things to come in 2014.
