For me, the holidays are about slowing down, reflecting, and looking at the bigger picture of my life… taking stock of my life as a whole and deciding what’s working, what’s not, and what’s next.
How did my year go? What do I want for next year? Am I still compelled to travel the globe? Will I really schedule much-needed vacation time in the coming year?
I like to call this the Bigger Game Perspective, and here are three (3) things I like to keep in mind as I reflect and dream. I share them with you in hopes that they will help keep you focused and moving forward as well:
- I look at what IS working in my life… rather than always seeing what is NOT working. Reflecting on what is NOT working is a comfort zone for most of us, and it simply doesn’t work!
- Stop blaming my life on my past circumstances. The past is the past. What happened to me in the past is certainly relevant to who I am today, yet it’s time for me to get current with TODAY and focus on the FUTURE. Remember… it’s all made up!
- Remember my allies! They are all around me. I am blessed and fortunate to have my partner, family, friends and colleagues all around the world. I have to remember to lean into them and ask for help. I can’t do it alone. And I actually don’t want to… I have much more fun when I surround myself with my allies.
Wishing you and yours a holiday season filled with love and blessings. I would love to hear from you about what you’ll be reflecting and dreaming about for 2018 and beyond!
