A Reflection Ritual for 2018

As we near the end of the year and enter into this season of celebration, gratitude, and self-reflection, I’d like to share something really special with you. Every December, I participate in a beautiful end of the year reflection ritual inspired by my transformative involvement in the Lifebook community. It looks something like this… I light some candles, brew a cup of hot tea, get cozy by the fireside with my dog nearby and settle in for a few hours of deep reflection and open-hearted honesty. The ritual is done by answering simple questions, which are designed to call forth mighty truth, inspiration and growth from deep within you. And now it’s your turn! Grab a pen and paper! Let’s reflect on all the things that made 2018 worth remembering. Take your time to write out all of your thoughts for each answer, no matter how big or small. You may be surprised how far you’ve come in just a year!
