12 Christmas Questions

12 x 12 = 12 Questions in 12 Minutes

Ok, so Christmas is coming and with it snow for some and sun for others.  It can be a magical time of the year as we look forward to catching up with family, friends and even having holidays. 

Equally, it can be a time of increased pressure and demands on our time and resources that need to be balanced.

Without a conscious intervention, life has the potential to slip by and we reach the end of yet another year left wondering where the year actually went.  We all have the same amount of time – it’s how we use that time that counts. 

Putting our time and energy into the things that are important and meaningful to us is what creates a fulfilling life.

Somewhere this month, you’ve got to stop and carve out a bit of ‘me only’ time. A mini sabbatical if you will.  Set a timer for 12 minutes, then answer these questions with the first answer that comes to mind.  Here’s my top 12:

  1. My greatest achievement this year is …
  2. My greatest challenge or obstacle was …
  3. What I learned from #2 is …
  4. The one thing I am most grateful for is …
  5. What I want more of in my life is …
  6. What I want less of is …
  7. What I’m willing to let go of is …
  8. What one things makes me feel good/great is …
  9. What one new thing I’m going to give a go is …
  10. What one value or virtue I’m going to master is …
  11. What opportunity lies before me (that I haven’t yet acted on) is …
  12. What one thing am I going to do just for me to acknowledge and celebrate my year is …

That’s it.  You’re done :).

Knowing where we are is the first step to knowing in what direction we are headed, then we can consciously decide where want to go.  Make it a conscious choice – be the captain, not the passenger. 

“Sometimes we think the end goal is the happy part.  But it’s doing the work along the way that you’ve got to enjoy and that makes the end part, if you achieve it, mean you can sit back and smile.” Richie McCaw

Life with its ups and downs, twist and turns and unexpected moments is a journey, ultimately of self-discovery where we find and embody the hidden treasures that have always been within us that are waiting to be expressed. 

Much love
