A Special Way to Say Goodbye to 2013 and Hello to 2014!

December '13

Since the year winds to a close today, I thought it might be useful to present you with a way to say good-bye to 2013 that can increase your happiness and health –  then offer you a way to say hello to 2014 that can improve your life.

If you’ve been reading Midlife Discovery for a while, you know I often extol the benefits of gratitude. Research reveals that expressing gratitude leads to greater happiness and better health, so I suggest you take a few minutes to step away from all the noise today and conclude the year with a bit of thankfulness.

In your quiet space, you can simply review each month of the past year and name one thing you found gratifying during that month. Leafing through your calendar may help recall events that raised your spirits, or if you prefer to use another approach, why not examine your own evolution during the past year. Perhaps you can see that you are a kinder, gentler person than last year, or maybe you’re easier in your soul than twelve months ago. How have you improved this year? Why not acknowledge those positive shifts with thanks.

You might be surprised to learn you are on my end-of-the-year gratitude list; I very much appreciate your subscribing to Midlife Discovery.  Knowing there is someone who will read the words I compose inspires me each month and when a comment appears in response to those words, I’m simply delighted. So thank you, thank you, thank you!

By way of expressing my appreciation, during January I’m offering a 25% discount on my journaling eCourse, Reinvent Your Life ~ Write Now (usually $47, now only $35). Journaling is a powerful tool for awakening your inner knowing and bringing new perspectives to your life. With its well-tested writing exercises and prompts, this course will help you learn what you need, who you truly are and what you really want to create a fulfilling life for yourself. This special offer is my way of encouraging you to begin the new year in a meaningful way.

In addition to the 25% discount, I’m offering a free coaching session for the first three folks who decide to take advantage of this special offer. You can learn more about embarking on this adventurous voyage of personal discovery here.  

Meanwhile, may you ring out the old year and bring in the new one with gratitude and joy!

Happy New Year!
