I hope all of you have been enjoying the holiday season this year. I’ve been asked to host the last #spiritchat for the year 2014, which is happening this Sunday, December 28, 2014 at 9am EST/ 6am PST.
As we bring another year to a close, it seemed rather fitting to focus on the Seasons of Change we’ve experienced this year. Just as our world goes through its appointed seasons, we experience them in a myriad of ways ourselves. So our focus for #spiritchat this week is to do some reflecting on the most significant changes we’ve experienced in 2014 to help prepare us with our new beginnings in 2015.
Some common seasons of change and transitions you may have experienced or might still be in the midst of:
- Health – aging, sickness and disease, weight loss/gain, fitness, death and dying
- Relationships – children: birth, graduation, empty nest syndrome, marriage, divorce, death
- Home – buying,selling, moving, building, renovating
- Business – starting, selling/ending, success and failure, new projects, products, services
And everything in between!
To help set the mood, here is a link to a post I wrote of the same title a few years ago.
You will find a series of questions at the end of the post that may help get you thinking about our chat tomorrow. Please note that I’ve created a new series of questions for the chat so those will be different for the most part. Also, I’m pleased to share that Jon Mertz ( @thindifference ) provided two of the questions that I will be sharing tomorrow! Thank you Jon!
