Start afresh by counting your blessings and learning your lessons

I wrote this as an end of year post in 2014 but you can do this exercise any time you feel the need for a fresh start…

Somehow – don’t ask me how – we are almost into December already.

But before your world becomes a crazy whirl of xmas shopping, Baileys-supping, turkey stuffing, party going and mistletoe smooching, take a moment – a quiet moment – for you.

The end of November is the perfect time to pause and take stock of the fading year.

The perfect time to count your blessings, learn your lessons and figure out what and who you’d definitely like to keep in the new year – and what and who you’d like to let go of with love.

To make things super simple for you, I’ve created a template below.

All you have to do is fill in the gaps.

Take some time when you know you won’t be interrupted, copy the template into a notebook, or copy and paste it on to your pc, and let the words flow.
