"Last years words belong to last year's language and next years words await another voice." ~T.S. Eliot With two weeks left for this year to end, have you thought about how you'll spend them? What will they produce? Specifically, how would you like to use those two weeks? Set your intention now and use the next two weeks with purpose.

What is one thing you’d like to accomplish, ending this year on a high note? I choose to finish my year with great ease and a calm presence. I will transition into 2012 with a sense of completion. I feel like 2012 is going to be a significant year for the newness it will bring. I will let go of the past with great appreciation for all that it was, and am open, ready to let in and receive the new. I will use the next two weeks to reflect and reminisce on what 2011 was for me. What did I accomplish and what did I cherish?

Below are some questions I am using to close out 2011. I encourage you to spend some time to do the same. Reflection can produce perspective and clarity.

Year-end Recap:

  • What books did I read?
  • What trips did I take?
  • Did I establish any new relationships?
  • Have some relationships ended their course?
  • What relationships have deepened?
  • What financial progress or knowledge did I gain?
  • Have I grown spiritually?
  • What personal growth have I had?
  • What were my major highs of the year?
  • What were my low points and what wisdom did those experiences produce in me?
  • What three words would I use to recap the year?
  • Are there any other notable changes, experiences or progressions that come to mind?

Please share with me some of the insights and findings you discover from reflecting on 2011. I’d love to hear your perspective of what 2011 was for you.

I want you to know that I hold every single person on this Monday Motivation list in my heart and pray for you often. I pray that your heart be filled with joy, that your days be filled with purpose and that your mind be rich in clarity.

Have a great week!
