“A really important part of this process is looking for the gems in the crap from 2021. I’m talking about cultivating the ability to look at every situation you find yourself in and say, ‘What did I learn about myself that is valuable?’” – Terri Cole
How do you feel about New Year’s resolutions? Did you know studies show that only 8% of people keep their New Year’s resolutions and that nearly 80% fail by February?
Those aren’t great odds. Why is it so difficult to follow through with our New Year’s resolutions despite our best intentions? From a therapeutic perspective, resolution setting is missing an essential piece; honest self-reflection.
For real, lasting change to stick, we need to look back, assess, and find evidence of what’s working and what’s not in our lives. It is only from a place of self-awareness and clarity that true transformation can happen.
That’s why in today’s episode, I’m offering you a therapeutic process to help you unpack 2021, honor your experiences and understand your own growth so you can clear the way for the changes you want to make!
It’s my favorite sacred ritual to start the year feeling energized, clear, and ready to take on 2022!
