Create Your 2016 BEST List

2016 has been a year of ups and downs, joys and sorrows, change and uncertainty.

I’ve seen and heard a lot of negativity on social media and the news, especially this week.

One way I’ve shifted my energy is listening to some of my favorite musicians from the 80’s & 90’s.  Prince, George Michael, Duran Duran (Simon LeBon is still with us).

I felt transported back to time which was Happy, Fun and Care Free.

I started thinking about all the happy & fun times I’ve had this past year including going to the Duran Duran concert, watching the Chicago Cubs win their 1st World Series in 108 years, traveling to Encinitas, California for my mediation retreat, going to the Iowa State Fair with my family, winning the dirndl competition at Oktoberfest, exploring the city of Prague and completing my holiday Extreme Self Care Challenge.

Once I got into my happy place I also started reflecting on everything that I’ve accomplished in 2016 including receiving my Professional Coaching Certification along with coaching over 60 clients on topics including creating the next chapter of their career, leaving toxic environments to do work they actually enjoy, growing an existing business, starting a new business from just an idea to making it a reality, building confidence to ask for a raise and promotion and so much more.

Today I invite you to join me on Creating Your Best of 2016. Take a few moments, listen to your favorite music and reflect back on 2016.
