Consider a new tradition as you begin the calendar year. How will you design the next 12 months to honor yourself and what you value? Instead of focusing on resolutions that are often hard to keep – take an incremental approach and begin by asking yourself questions to help clarify what’s really important.
Give yourself permission to know that your answers will evolve as life unfolds. It’s a great way to start off a new year with focus and purpose.
