If we’re not mindful, it’s easy to plunge into the New Year with a sense of lack, disappointment, or frustration about what didn’t go perfectly. But when we take a moment to reflect back on what we are grateful for, what went well, and how much we’ve accomplished, it shifts your perception from a glass half-empty perspective to a glass half-full one, and that type of shift attracts more abundance, joy, love, and success.
So I invite you to try this two-part exercise. Today, we’ll focus on Part One, and in the next blog post, we’ll complete the exercise.
Start by reflecting back over 2012, starting last January. Pull out your calendar if your memory needs a jog. Make a list of your accomplishments – not just professional ones, but personal or spiritual growth areas as well.
I’ll go first.
