This New Year, Take Time to Focus on the Small Things*
*Because the small things really are the BIG things …
The eve of the New Year is a time for contemplation and renewal. It is also a time to look back at all we set out to do and what we accomplished this past year. We resolve to set our resolutions and we promise ourselves we will keep them. Sometimes we put them in writing, often we don’t. They are often about losing weight, finding a new job, bettering our marriage, etc.
I have a twist on this time honored tradition…. What if we each spent time focusing on a few small details and writing out our thoughts? Thoughts we can return and add to throughout the year? Here are a few questions to contemplate and please comment by adding your own:
What am I looking forward to in 2016?
Who do I want to hang out with?
Who will I build a better relationship with?
What do I love about my job?
What really matters to me?
What will I do more of?
What makes me smile?
Who makes me smile?
What am I grateful for?
Who am I grateful for?
What is my purpose?
Enjoy thinking and writing about what YOUR New Year WILL BRING you, or what you will BRING to it. I welcome your response with a few of your own affirming New Year’s questions. Until then, enjoy the Journey of the New Year and all that it has to offer. A year where every day will be new to you and an opportunity to renew your focus on the small details….
Happy New Year!
