Maybe you were committed to them and accomplished them all, or maybe they were just momentary wishes that you werent ready to work toward. Or, maybe you did well on some and not so well on others. Either way, they all represent something about the person you want to become.

And now, 12 months later, it is time to reassess those goals and to either recommit or revise your vision for yourself. It is time to look back and ask, Who do I want to become? How can I move toward my highest self?

So be sure to celebrate well during this New Years seasoncelebrate who you have been, who you are now, and who you will become.
