A great way to say goodbye to 2013

No matter how you will celebrate the next couple of weeks, I wish you peace, love and joy from my heart to yours.

Before we wrap up this year together, I have a little exercise for you (of course, you know I would!)  It’s a ritual I look forward to and have completed every year in late December for nearly 30 years.  It’s called Timeline.

Together with my husband Rob, we review the past year and write down every major happening or event that stood out for us.

10 questions to ask yourself to say goodbye to 2013 and start next year fresh- womenonfire

Once we have our long list, we ask ourselves these questions:

  1. What was remarkable about the year?
  2. Who came into my life this year?
  3. Who left it?
  4. What were my best accomplishments/achievements?
  5. Favorite times/moments?
  6. Biggest disappointment?
  7. Best surprise?
  8. When I look back on the year, I could never have imagined (fill in the blank).
  9. What was the single most significant event of the year?
  10. How do I want next year to be different?

You can have fun doing this eye-opening exercise alone, with a spouse or partner, or as a whole family. It’s amazing to see all that you’ve accomplished, celebrated and lived through during one year.

Saying goodbye to 2013 with Timeline makes way for a brand-new year and opportunity to start anew.  Have a great time if you choose to do it! And let me know how it worked out for you.

This is the final SPARK! for 2013. I look so very forward to seeing you again back here on January 5, 2014 to kick off the New Year together.
