Happy New Year! I, personally, was eagerly anticipating the new year. I needed some buttons reset– wanted the promise of turning to blank pages on my calendar and to do notebook and starting to fill them up. I wanted the opportunity to reflect and to dream. I wanted the chance to begin again, especially as December started to really take it out of me.
And, so, as I was doing my planning for the new year and thinking about my very favorite New Year’s rituals that get me excited and life rituals that keep me going, I thought it might be fun to share them here daily throughout the month of January. Many of them I have talked about here before but I am hoping that all together as a daily plan over the course of the month, they will serve as a valuable toolbox of strategies and rituals to get your new year going just as you dream.
Starting Monday, I will be sharing a daily blog post with you until January 31st. Some days will introduce concrete tools– choosing a word for the year, making a vision board. Other days will invite you to reflect– a weekly Explore worksheet will guide you in a fast and fun self-discovery exercise and I will invite all of you to actively join me in Friday Reflections by sharing your own reflections from the week. Sundays will continue to feature inspirational Happy Sheets. My hope is that our daily attention to this new beginning that 2014 was brought will allow each of us to establish a solid foundation for 2014 that leaves us inspired, prepared, active, and intentional.
Before we get started, do you have any questions, suggestions, or thoughts about Spark? Share them with me here!
