5 Questions for New Year's Reflection

Want to do some New Year's reflection but not sure where to start?  Here are 5 sets of powerful questions to get you going.  You can sit with these in silence, write or draw about them in your journal, mull them over on a long walk, or share answers in conversation with a partner or friend.


Looking back over the past year, when were you at your best? Think about moments when you felt most alive and engaged, perhaps joyful or particularly purposeful.  What threads of similarity connect these moments?


What has changed within you this past year?  What is just beginning to change within in you now?


As you end this year, what's weighing you down?  How can you shift your experience or perception of that which is weighing you down?


Imagine that it is twelve months from now, and you've had a fantastic, fulfilling year.  What does that look like?  What did you do -- and how did you have to be -- to get to this result?


In the coming year, what are the critical areas for your learning and growth?  What are your first steps for attending to these areas?
