My recent blog encouraged you to tease out how the last 365 days helped you to thrive, taught you life lessons and helped you to get clear about what to say goodbye to.

There have been losses; we lost some amazing people this year, some tragedies financially, politically and so many incidents leading to lost lives. Amongst all that there have been some amazing things that have happened too. We owe it to ourselves to create a balanced perspective and give both the positives and negatives equal attention! There are always joyful moments, successes, things to be grateful for, moments of growth, magic moments and lessons learned to be found. From my own experience, and from talking to others who dealt with some sort of adversity this past year, I discovered that facing life’s challenges teaches you valuable pearls of wisdom. For some it’s finding out what really matters, the value of true friendships, or our potential to dig deep and find true inner strength. Appreciating the small things and acknowledging growth can create a great energy for life and impact what we allow ourselves to believe is possible. What did you learn, love, discover and enjoy? Did you appreciate the small but significant moments that took your breath away or made you feel happy? Perhaps you spent time with likeminded people and felt inspired, encouraged or connected!
