05 Dec Your annual celebration exercise. Time to embrace all that you have been, seen, & done in 2016!
I hope that your week is off to a great start.
As I write to you, Bali is curled up on my lap, his head resting on my desk between my hands. I’m sipping a locally crafted beer after a scenic surf session with a good friend who is visiting from out of town. I am still feeling so proud of the three women I coached today. Honoured to do what I do.
Today felt like riding the perfect wave. So I am still letting it sink in. I think we should embrace those perfect days. Some just stand out more than others.
That being said, it’s December 5th. There are just over three weeks left in 2016, and I know that before we know it 2017 will have arrived.
It’s time to start embracing the year that is coming to a close.
To put a pause on chasing dreams or self-improvement, and to just enjoy what is and what was.
I call this your ANNUAL CELEBRATION. A time where you reflect on all that has happened instead of beating yourself up about what hasn’t.
So grab a piece of paper, or a few. Your favourite coloured pen. Pour yourself a glass of vino or make some tea. Turn on your favourite playlist, I’m currently digging THIS ONE.
Celebrate your wins. Laugh at the lows. Embrace all of it.
Here are a few questions to guide you:
What have been some of the most memorable moments of the year so far?
What are you proud of?
Who/What made you laugh?
Who/What took your breathe away?
Which 3-5 people made the biggest impact on your life this year?
What are you most grateful for?
What have you experienced?
What have you learned?
How have you given back? What did people thank you for?
What did you start? Stop? Create? Share? Launch? Expand? Develop?
What can you let go of now in order to move forward?
How can you finish the year off with a bang & feel proud of who you are?
Take time for yourself to do this.
Share with a friend. Even better, ask a friend to answer these questions with you.
Celebrate all that you have been, done, & seen. What didn’t get done probably didn’t happen for a reason, so let that be for a moment.

As Gretchen Rubin says, author of The Happiness Project,
“The days are long, but the years are short.”
