From my family to yours, happy new year! 2015 has come and gone, but there is still time to reflect on the gifts and the challenges of the past year as well as offer gratitude. It’s been a whirlwind to say the least, and for me the biggest challenge has been navigating the rocky terrain of parenting. It has brought me to my knees with joy as well as struggle.
As I continue to figure out how to be a stay at home mom that still works on the side, things around here will be slow. My list of things to share with you is growing long! There are so many things to say. Here are a few in true list style.
November’s 30 days of gratitude was a lot of fun and attitude changing! Thanks to those that participated in all the challenges. Gratitude trees were put up in schools, yards, and even a hair salon. People filled out their journals and posted photos of their gratitudes on instagram and facebook. I hope your gratitude practice continues throughout the year.
In case you missed it, you can still download the journal and start your 30 days of gratitude any time!
Let gratitude be the pillow upon which you kneel to say your nightly prayer.
Year End Review Roundup
Looking back on the year helps me prepare for the year to come. Here are a few of my favorite resources to look back on 2015 and prepare for 2016.
Susannah Conway - She has a variety of resources including a workbook to recap your year and a free word of the year workshop.
Lotus Wei - I use Katie's flower essences so I am fan of her work. She offers a few thought provoking questions for journaling.
BLOGLOVIN’ This particular post offers 50 questions to help you reflect.
Thriving at the Creative Edge by Cynthia Morris - All I can say is WOW! How have I not come across her work before? You have to subscribe to get the review, but it is WELL worth the read.
Know what you want, but lost your compass? Let me be your field guide for 2016. I don’t believe in setting resolutions, but I do believe in intentions. Together we will create a field map for your year. That’s what coaches do! Click here for more information.

What Do You Want?
Really. What do you want? I would appreciate your feedback. I’ve created a brief survey to hear from you, my reader at home, that is interested in self help but doesn’t have the time to commit to a life coach. What topics would you like me to address in the new year? Click here to take the survey.
I do hope you found a few moments of peace and joy in your holiday season and may your 2016 be full of blessings.
