I love December. It’s a month of contrasts. There is the frenzied energy of year-end activities and holiday celebrations. And then because we only have 6 hours of daylight — there is the quiet energy of HIBERNATING — tucking in under a warm blanket with a mug of hot cocoa for a low key evening.
And then there’s the YAHOO/BOO HOO/AH-HA activity I do with my coaching clients.
Here’s how it goes:
We start with YAHOO: exploring all the things that were good about the year: accomplishments, achievements, and good times.
Then we visit BOO HOO: the disappointments, things that didn’t get done, and the tough moments.
We wrap up with AH-HA: capturing the important nuggets of learning from the year.
Most of the time, at the end of this activity, my clients create a simple ritual for saying Good Bye/Farewell to this year. (Tossing the list in the fireplace/fire pit is my personal fave!)
I love doing this activity with my clients and for myself. It wraps up the year so that we start the New Year fresh. Want to give it a try? CLICK HERE for the worksheet that will walk you through the activity. I hope you like it!
Warmly – with hot cocoa and marshmallows,
