I love new years. Not New Years Eve or Day, but the concept of a new year. I think it’s because it feels like an ebeneezer: a mark in the ground to say – we have made it another year. And I’m also a big fan of looking backwards and considering, thanking, learning from our failures and celebrating our gifts.
Each year I spend some time answering questions that help me think through the year gone by and dream for the year ahead. This year, I built out some worksheets that help me consider my goals in light of my values (and incorporate some of what I’m learning about right now in school!)
