Birthdays offer a time to reflect...
What are your favorite birthday traditions? My birthday is an opportunity to treat myself, rest, play, and reflect. I treated myself to a chocolate croissant for breakfast, I purposely scheduled a very light work day today, and tonight I have a special date planned with my daughter. I also started my morning, as I always do, in reflection.
On my birthday, I always ask myself a few specific reflection questions and explore possibilities in my journal. The questions I asked today were:
-How can I best honor and celebrate myself and my accomplishments throughout the month?
-What to embrace this next year
-How to bring more joy into this next year
-A new interest I'd like to explore
-How can I be a gift to others this year?
I reviewed the themes that emerged and noticed what piqued my interest the most. My next step will be to integrate my ideas into my 2021 Vision, and create a Soul Vision board as a visual reminder of my aspirations, areas of focus, and priorities. I'll be sharing more on the Soul Vision board concept soon, and a colleague and I are dreaming up our next collaborative workshop on this topic, which will be held in January - stay tuned!
So, what are your favorite birthday traditions?
