It’s that special time of year to reflect on what has been as we begin to dream, and plan and shape what lies ahead in the upcoming year.  While this list does not encompass ALL that happened in my year, it shines a light on much of what happened, and reminds me where I took risks, tried something new, have reason to celebrate and what I can release, reflect on and learn from.  I highly encourage you to engage in your own end of year review! Some good resources are Susannah Conway’s Unravel Your Year or Tim Ferris’s Past Year Review.
