It does not mean to be in a place where there is no noise, trouble or hard work... it means to be in the midst of those things and still be calm in your heart...  - Anonymous

Most all traditions religious or secular consider December a season of renewal, rebirth, and light. The winter solstice, the shortest day of the year signals that each day afterwards will increase.

New beginnings are just around the corner. But before you can begin anew the past must be resolved, ended, and let go. Then you can truly ring in the New Year at peace with yourself.

Review 2001.

What was great about it? What wasn't? With the events of September 11th, layoffs, and personal problems, this has been a difficult year for many of us. Still - look for the good. It's always there along with new opportunities however hidden they may seem now.

What did you accomplish personally? Professionally? What are you most proud of? Pat yourself on the back even if others don't.

What had you planned to do that just didn't get done? Don't beat up on yourself. Just be aware of what happened and why. Plan better or more realistically next year.

Is there someone you owe a phone call, a thank you, an apology or forgiveness? Do it now. Don't carry guilt or anger into the new year. Both cause pain, drain energy, and keep you connected to the object of the emotion. Resolve any differences. Release yourself.

Then it's time to decide what you want to do-be-accomplish in the new year. Write it down along with a plan to make it happen.

Most people fail with New Year's Resolutions. This is often because there was no plan - no accountability - and no reward. You need all three. Make your plan. Ask someone to hold you accountable. Reward yourself as you move toward your goal.

Best wishes for a holiday season and New Year filled with personal peace, fulfillment, and abundance in all good things.
