Years ago, when I traded my food rules for intuitive eating, I also traded my January 1 resolutions (which were always about losing weight) for a different ritual. This ritual is something that’s allowed me to feel more in tune with my values, hopes, and dreams.
I started taking the first week (or more) of the new year to reflect on the past 12 months, reconnect with myself, and set thoughtful intentions for the year to come. Rather than forcing goals on January 1, I ease into the year.
During that first week or so of the year, I journal about it all. I love to look back on my notes from the year before! It’s always so special to see the twists-and-turns, the evolution, and those moments that the me from a year ago never could have imagined.
A few years ago, Tim started to join me. He and I both do this privately and then come together to share, learning how we can support one another individually, and get excited about what we will get to do together.
If you’re ready to ease into 2022 intentionally…
I’ve been creating something for you this entire month, to guide you from 2021 to 2022: A collection of IG stories (saved to my highlights) that you can think of it like a mini workshop that you can explore in your own time.
Grab a journal, cozy up, and tune in here:
- The power in the way you get to a destination here
- Recognize the positive intention here
- Focus on what is here
- Healing + growth that’s for you here
- Fear vs. love here
- What’s one thing you’d change today here
- No such thing as perfect here
- Ask why here
- Notice the micro moments here
- It’s ok to NOT here
- Lessons from the first year band here
And, here are the exact questions I ask myself as part of my new year ritual:
They are wonderful to do solo, or to share with someone you love!
As you reflect on 2021 + set your intentions for 2022, I’d love to hear what’s on your heart!
Thank you for being here with me in 2021! I can’t wait for the moments we will get to share in 2022 (I have something special coming in February… stay tuned).
Happy new year!
