If you’re going by the calendar, I am a little late for this post. After all, aren’t we supposed to have all of last year’s business tied up with a nice neat bow by December 31, and your road map for the New Year all laid out by January 1? Well, if that is you — then way to go! You are on the ball. That is not me. This has never been me. I rarely operate my life by what the Hallmark calendar says. For me, the New Year officially begins when my kids go back to school, the house is once again quiet, and I have a little “me time” to think. Everyone is different. Some of you are out there working a 9-5 jobs, returning to work when the kids go back to school. My point is, it doesn’t matter what the date on the calendar says — you simply start when you’re ready! No guilt. No shame. No ticking time watch telling you you’re late! 

So here it is January 4 and I am sitting down to reflect on what I learned, what I did well, where I missed the mark in 2015. And, I am looking forward and considering where it is exactly I want to go in the New Year. 

Natalia Levey of Healthy Intent inspired me to take time to consider my 2015 Reflections after posting her own on social media. It seems so simple, really, to first sit and take stock of all that transpired this past year before forging ahead into the new one. But how many times have you just sprinted into the new calendar year without first giving much consideration to all the lessons you learned over the past 12 months? If you’re like me — a bull ready to go! — you may have been too focused on the future to give much credence to the past. (This is SO me! Nostalgia is just not my thing). Inspired — I sat down to really consider what all I had accomplished this past year and, much to my surprise, realized I had checked off quiet a few amazing boxes. 
This was an amazing “energizer” for me. It really forced me to focus, seek clarity, and listen to my heart about what resonates within me — what matters to me. This is an amazing place to start when considering where you want to go from here — what goals and dreams do you want to put in place for the months ahead? Almost instantly, after completing this exercise, a flood of fresh, new ideas and visions rushed into my head — things I’d never considered before but suddenly made so much sense to me “Of course that’s what I should aim for in 2016. Duh!!” 

My challenge to you, if you have not already done something similar to this, is to sit down and really reflect back on your wins from 2015. It is not too late to give yourself a little credit, a pat on the back, for all you accomplished. It’s not so much about the recognition as it is the revelation. I can almost guarantee you it will fuel you and feed your soul for new opportunities, new paths, new directions in 2016. 

I’d love to hear your 2015 Reflections. Sharing is so powerful. It’s a release into the Universe that has undeniable affects. I wish you all nothing but positivity, opportunity, health, happiness, and LIGHT in 2016.  If you haven’t yet joined the LIGHTbeamers Community, please do so!

Cheers,
APRIL
