This post is my preview of 2013 using the reflection process I shared on the blog last week: Preview 2013: Ten Journaling Questions to Help You Envision Your Ideal Life Next Year
It’s been an amazing first week of 2013. I turned 30(!), moved into a new place close to DC (just like I asked the universe for back in November), made new friends and reconnected with old ones. I’m feeling grateful and optimistic. Which means it’s the right time to share my preview of the coming year.
What I Want to Bring Into My Life in 2013
What do you deserve more of next year? What do you deserve less of next year?
What personal milestone(s) do you most want to reach in your relationships, health, family, finances, education and/or lifestyle?
What I Want My Life to Look Like in 2013
In the morning, I wake up in a room with lots of light. I immediately turn on uplifting music, feeling grateful for another day. I continue with meditation and/or yoga, then cooking and eating a healthy breakfast. I work through the morning either writing or working with coaching clients. For a change of pace, I go to sit at a coffee shop or the library and turn it into my office for the day. In the afternoon, I prepare a healthy lunch or go out to eat with friends or colleagues. I talk to my mom and Grama. My afternoon continues with meetings or conference calls, as well as connecting with my online community. In the evening, I shut down my work by 6:00pm and make time to cook a healthy dinner or go out out to eat with friends or a date. Later on in the evening, I curl up with a strong drink, a good book, my trusty notebook, an interesting movie and/or a handsome man
I’d already had a theme word for 2013 (actually a phrase) picked out at the end of 2012, but after writing my preview, I decided that my scope was bigger than that. Originally, I had chosen “Focused Learning” as my theme because there are a number of specific things I want to educate myself about. But if I step back from that a bit, what I really want to pay the most attention to in the coming year are my own desires, especially when it comes to my business and my romantic relationships. So maybe this year, I’ll have a primary theme (Desire) and a secondary theme (Focused Learning). Amen?
I feel ready to experience all that 2013 has to offer. It’s like I’m sitting at the foot of the universe, ready with my notebook and pen, eager to record all the lessons it will teach me.
