1) What major themes have shown up over the past year of my life?
Before we move forward we must take a moment to consider what has brought us to this moment!
I love this question because it’s more than simply looking at the highlights or lowlights of your year. In fact, looking for the reoccurring themes since your last birthday can actually help you connect the dots you otherwise may have never thought to.
2) What surprises you about what you’ve accomplished over the last year?
This one is another favorite because again- it’s more than just listing an accomplishment on your highlight reel. Instead, asking yourself what surprised you allows you to focus on the things you never expected.
I also find that asking this question in this way allows you an opportunity to feel sneakily proud of yourself!
