I’m a big fan of continually reflecting, connecting and intentionally creating. (But that’s probably not a surprise.)
At the end of last year, I sent out an email to the peeps on my list and shared with them an exercise I do with a lot of my clients. It’s a bunch of questions to contemplate and complete to close out the end of the year, and to get your juices flowing for who you want to be, and what you want to create in the new year.
I got such a great response from it, and am still getting positive comments about how it made a difference for them and the people they shared it with, I’m posting them up right here.
Here they are:
• What was your biggest triumph in 2014?
• What was the smartest decision you made in 2014?
• What one word best sums up and describes your 2014 experience?

Have you ever heard a story so powerful that its impact changed you on a cellular level?
I met one of my new mentors and teachers, Bo Eason, this past weekend at a four-day training, and he told a story that did just that — he told a story that changed me, to the very fiber of my identity.
Bo, a former NFL Star, Broadway Playwright, Actor and Expert Storyteller, is an incredible speaker who holds your breath and makes you cling to his every word.
There is a massive shift happening right now. Change is imminent. I have felt it in a BIG way this year.
Let me tell you a little about the past few months…
In April, the catalyst to my shift was when I discovered that my live-in boyfriend, who I thought I was going to marry, had created an active profile on Match.com. After a morning meditation, I got an intuition to check and I found exactly what I didn’t want to find. I logged in with my old passcodes, and with a click of a button I saw his new profile and it even said “Online Now! IM me.” In that moment, it felt like my whole world was crashing down. But in the end, I saw that it was actually a huge blessing. It took awhile to get to see the blessing, but I knew the reason was because I needed to learn something that would beautifully alter me and how I approached life.
