During these last few weeks of the year take the time to look back and remember.
What are the highs and the lows from 2013? What did you do or not do to make this year spectacular?
This week is the best time to reconnect, rewind your mind, and redo anything that is out of kilter. By next week the holiday rush takes over and time to ruminate is non-existent.
Saturday is December 21st, the solstice which for all of us, regardless of religion or culture is the shortest day and the longest night of the year. It is after this that a new cycle begins.
In my work and in the book “Don’t Bring It to Work,” I tell story after story about people in the business world who hold back on their dreams, blame others for their bad luck, or back-stab to do a “one-up” to be noticed.
When they stop and take the time to rethink what they are feeling and doing there are always memories that show up to light the way of understanding.
Here is what is super important this week that concludes on Saturday with the solstice:
You can change your point of view. You can either ask for forgiveness or forgive. Yes you can!
And once you put the memories in proper perspective you can begin a-new. The week of holiday parties can become more peaceful, more joyful, more creative and more comforting.
Talk to whoever you need to and discuss what you have been holding back.
“Why me?” you ask. And the answer is “Why not you!”
Go ahead. Give yourself the gift of a wonderful week that will lead to a wonderful month to a wonderful year. Clearing the past to free the present is truly the best present you can give to yourself and everyone around you.
Happy rethinking your memories.
