Ohhh 2015 you will always have a piece of my heart.
What a year it has been.
My favourite things to do at this time is Reflect + Celebrate + Set new Intentions.
I believe it is so important to take the time, before moving forward, to reflect on where we have been to where we are now. The lessons, moments and memories that have been shared and everything we have achieved. Often when we are ‘in it’ we can’t see the growth and transformations that have taken place and allowing yourself this reflection time is a beautiful way to honour yourself and your life.
And what do you do when you realise how far you have come or even the small steps and decisions you’ve made for yourself? You C E L E B R A T E !!!
You deserve to be proud and celebrate EVERYTHING. This can be by simply acknowledging it. Voicing it – Yeah girl you totally killed it at life this year OR I’m proud of myself for learning from the challenges I’ve experienced. Buying yourself a little something special, maybe a token gift to represent what this year has meant to you or what you’ve learnt. A dinner or lunch out with your friends + loved ones. Whatever lights you up and makes you feel loved and special, do that.
Then I love to think about what I want for the year to come. My hopes, wildest dreams and deepest hearts desires. I’ve decided to set an Intention word for 2016 to capture all of these thoughts and feelings – A B U N D A N C E – Emotionally, Spiritually, Physically, Financially and every sense of the word.
This is the way I like to see out the year that was and welcome in the new one in a heart centred, inspiring and empowering way. No pressure or judgement. Just love and acceptance.
I invite you to try it, beautiful.
I’d also love to share some of my highlight moments from throughout the year…
