This is often the time of year when most people become reflective and think more about what they have done, where they are going, and what they have yet to accomplish. It can result in you springing to action to create change, or a time where you pat yourself on the back and say, "job well done this year!"
All to often in our lives, we forget to evaluate our relationships (lovers, family, and friends) in that reflection. When discussing successes and failures, it is often based on the bottom line at our job, grades received, and bonuses earned. Talk of relationships are often left out or avoided. Whatever scenario you resonate with, now is the perfect time to establish what you want out of your relationships for the coming year. Transitioning into 2012 allows for the perfect time to make some changes, however subtle or grandiose they may be.
Kim Anami, life coach, wrote an amazing piece on this very subject. You may feel as though life is fantastic and it is exactly as it should be. I applaud you and encourage you to read the article anyway. It will move you.
