A New Years Reflection (2013/2014)

8:52 AM

Here is my 2012/2013 Reflection and my 2011/2012 Reflection.

What did you create?

  •  A new baby!
  • Some Ikea furniture
  • More recipes for the blog
  • A wonderful new career at the hospital

What challenges did you face with courage and strength?
  • Driving on black ice
  • Presenting a seminar at the Birth & Beyond Conference (so many people!)
What promises did you keep? 
  • Don't text and drive
  • Email Oliver's secret email address regularly so he can read them when he's older
What brave choices did you make?
  • To wake up when I have to work at 6am
What are you proud of?
  • Presenting at the Birth and Beyond Conference 
What was disappointing?
  • Blowing a tire the weekend that Calvin was away with his band
What was scary?
  • Driving to St. Thomas in the snow
  • A television audition (secret!) 
What was hard?
  • Being pregnant while breastfeeding a toddler
  • Being pregnant even once your toddler is weaned
What can you forgive yourself for?
  • Gaining 25 pounds? Ha ha. 
The next step is to say out loud, “I declare 2013 complete!”
How do you feel? If you don’t feel quite right, there might be one more thing to say…
Like a fraud because I didn't do it. (What? There are a bunch of people around!) 

The final step is to consider your primary focus for the year to come. What is your primary intention or theme for 2014?
“In the end, only three things matter: how much you loved, how gently you lived, and how gracefully you let go of things not meant for you.”
