It’s New Year’s Eve and I, for one, am incredibly excited about what 2014 is going to offer. Yay for change! I know not everyone feels the same way about change. But sometimes, even if it’s hard and even if you can’t “see around the next bend” it’s a great time to make changes for the better. One of the sayings in our house (quoting my Grandfather, who was a very wise man) is,
“There is never any harm in re-evaluating your position
to see if you can do better.”
The great thing about this is there are TWO possibilities:
1- You can’t do any better; the way things are is the best possible choice/scenario/option.
2- You can do better. So figure out what needs to happen in order for that to be the case and get on it!
When Mr. W and I got married I had been holding onto a list of questions that I had come into possession of through various sources. I knew I wanted to answer them and apply them to my life, and then it hit me: the start of a new year is a GREAT time to re-evaluate and these questions help you do just that! We have made a commitment to answering them every year, together, and I can’t tell you how much it’s helped us focus on our goals and check where we’re at with things we “said we were going to do”… and then just didn’t.
Sooo… I’m offering you all a free download of these questions. There are 21 of them- and they are heavy going! If you’re going to do it right, give yourself a lot of time to answer them seriously and purposefully. Write down your answers- trust me, it’s amazing to look back later and see what you accomplished and how you can tweak things! It’s in 3 different colors- Lime, Pink & Purple.
Please let me know about your new goals,
hopes & dreams for 2014!
Happy New Year!
