My ideal New Year involves slowing down, staying close to home and being with people I love. I like to ring in the New Year reflecting on meaningful and memorable moments from the previous year and imagining what I want to live into for the coming year. Reflecting and Dreaming.
Did you spend your new years the way you wanted? There's the ideal and then there's what happens. Sometimes our year-end rituals and New Year's plans don't always turn out the way we plan. So what can you do? Give yourself extra time in January to complete your year-end and New Year's rituals. Don't let them fizzle away and start the year incomplete, give yourself permission to complete what is meaningful to you even if it's a few weeks late. As Howard Thurman says ..."the world needs people who have come alive..." so COME ALIVE as the year begins in a way that's meaningful to you. A resource and offering:
As the year is still new, I want to remind you about the 2014 Gratitude Book Project
of which I am a part. If you want to give the gift of gratitude to a friend, colleague or family member, order online here
. The proceeds support Women for Women Int'l, Feed America and ASPCA.
I will be leading another Leadership Embodiment workshop in the Spring. Here is my teacher's newest book Leadership Embodiment: How the Way We Sit and Stand Can Change the Way We Think and Speak.
For those of you interested in leadership and neuroscience it's a must read. We'll be covering this in the Leadership Embodiment workshop I am leading as well.
I hope your year is one of coming alive and nourishing your deepest aspirations.
Happy New Year,
