This is a great time of the year to spend some quiet time reflecting over the past year. Before deciding how you would like to proceed and make the most of 2010, it is imperative to take a moment and reflect on 2009, taking into account all that stands out in your mind and all the amazing life learnings; the things that have worked and the things that haven’t. By reflecting on your year, remembering all your valuable learnings and the new wealth of knowledge gained, you are able to bring this wisdom with you and forge ahead into 2010 with gusto, passion and clarity. It is a time to review your internal settings and modify them to a setting that moves you forward into an inspired, empowered future.
