Celebrating the Year That Was – 2009 Edition

My Saturday morning meeting is closed today due to Boxing Day, so I sent my members a video meeting talking about this week’s topic: celebrating. In the video I’ve encouraged my members to celebrate their accomplishments in the year that has passed as well as set some goals for the new year. I’ve decided to take my own advice and celebrate my accomplishments from 2009:SANY2593

I will be following this up with a list of goals for 2010 early next week. This list covers a lot of the big stuff and I have to say it feels wonderful to look back at everything that has happened in 2009. I’ve had a lot of fun with friends (old and new) as well as getting to know so many more people through this blog. Thank you for your continued readership and enthusiasm!! 2010 is going to be a year of change for me, and I’m truly looking forward to everything coming my way.

I now encourage all of you to look back on 2009 and celebrate your accomplishments: big, small and everything in between!

Give yourself the credit you deserve and spend some time truly celebrating. Don’t make it about the things you wished you did or things you didn’t do. What’s done is done. I know that each of you have done some remarkable things this year, and now is the time to be proud of yourself. Reflecting on your accomplishments can be incredibly motivating and can be a great source of inspiration when the negative thoughts start to creep in. Positivity is contagious!!

What accomplishments are you celebrating from 2009?

Ashley,

I am SO proud of you for everything that you have done this year. You had so many challenges and just blew threw them all.

I'm so thankful for this year because, at this time last year, we didn't even know eachother, and now I am SO glad to call you a friend. You have helped me through so much in my life, and accepted me for everything.
Your support has definatly helped be to become who I am this year, and grow into the person that I want to be.
I can not tell you how excited I am to move into 2010 and make it an amazing year. I know that as 2010 comes, it is going to bring such amazing things into your life, as well as mine, and I am looking forward to everything that it brings.

You inspire me to be the best person that I can be. <3
