Last week when I received a video blog from Emily Fletcher of Ziva Meditation suggesting a process for reflecting on 2014 and then creating meaningful goals for 2015 I decided I would take the time to work through the process. I found it interesting, enjoyable and meaningful and it enabled the following learnings:
1. It was challenging for me to recall the events and activities of 2014 without a journal or record of events.
2. The most significant events and activities involved my family and friends.
3. I was able to quickly and clearly articulate my goals following the five headings Emily provided.
4. I felt a sense of excited anticipation about working towards my goals for 2015.
5. I felt quite organised to be able to articulate these goals before 31 December!
6. My goals highlighted an overarching theme which will be my touchstone for the year.
I love the idea of a fresh new year; a chance to begin again, to renew commitments and goals. I have determined several goals which fit into an overall focus for the year. For 2015, I am striving towards simplicity. I recognise that this is probably a continuation of my work in 2014 with my leave and the big 'de-clutter'. I also recognise that my initial work in achieving my goals may be anything but simple, but for 2015 the key question to self should be; "How will this task/event/activity assist me to live with greater simplicity?"
I wish you every success in the achievement of your goals in 2015.
Have you prepared your resolutions for 2015?
What theme will be your touchstone for the year ahead?
