This tradition ensures you 12 months of happiness!
Happy New Year’s Eve!
We hope you all had a wonderful Holiday and are now ready to ring in the New Year!
As the final days of the year pass, I like to take inventory of the year that is ending and make some plans (never resolutions) for the new year. Joel and I have taken the day off, Grandma is watching Xander, and we are armed with a notebook, pens and big dreams!
First thing we do is talk about and write down all the things we did over the past 365 and then we talk about them and REALLY feel thankful for all those experiences. Then we each take a piece of paper and go crazy writing down things we want for the next 366 days- 2106 is a leap year! We’re talking everything- do yoga once a week, go to Tulum in February, do a juice cleanse twice this year, buy a new couch, hire a new employee, meditate 3 times a week, have a weekly date night, spend next Christmas in Mexico- ok my list will go on and on! Then we share our lists and decide what things are a MUST! Then we plan out the next 90 Days and schedule in a meeting for the following 90 Days, so that we keep on track and all our dreams come true!
I love doing this because it gives focus to the year and maps out how our dreams will come true. It also strengthens our bond as a couple because we are both working towards making our dreams come true.
Another reason why I love this activity, is that it makes it very clear as to what my top 12 goals/wishes are for the next year. This is SUPER important to know BEFORE midnight on the 31st! As you can see from this video- there is a long tradition of eating one grape for the last 12 seconds of the year and making 12 wishes for the new year.
Take a look and then you too can make this tradition part of your life!
We all wish you a wonderful, fabulous New Year’s Eve celebration and may the next 366 day tour around the sun be filled with love, dreams fulfilled and passion!
Shani & Joel
