As I trek toward the end of 2011, I find myself reflecting on all that transpired. The many accomplishments that still leave me speechless, defeats that attempted to knock the wind out of me and priceless moments that I’ll treasure forever. Most importantly, I reflect on the salvation found in truly finding ME! There is an overwhelming feeling of freedom that comes in recognizing a life gleaming with possibility and driven by purpose.
While there will never be an end to my growth (or at least so I hope), it is a true blessing to find myself “complete” and content in who I am both personally, professionally and spiritually. That is by far my greatest accomplishment in 2011.
Looking forward to the New Year, I am hopeful, bright eyed and eager to shine my light in new and wonderful ways. I thought sharing a few of the questions I reflect on as I head into each New Year might be helpful to you as well. As the saying goes…you can’t know where you are going, until you know where you have been.
