As we are in the last month of 2019, I am curious if you have any end of year rituals. I used to be one to make New Year's Resolutions, but over the past couple of years I have done more of an end-of-year audit and then set new intentions for the year. Here are a few options for consideration as 2020 approaches.

~~~~~~~~~~~ ANNUAL REVIEW~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~PAST YEAR REVIEW~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~UNRAVEL YOUR YEAR~~~~~~~~~~
The Unravel your Year is what I have been doing the last couple of years, by Susannah Conway. It's a workbook where you evaluate the year that is ending by answering a full range of questions, and then you complete that year and start setting your intentions for the new year while responding to questions related to your goals and aspirations. You even have the option to do an Angel Card reading depicting your year. Here are a few photos from my last two years doing the workbook.
~~~~~~~~~~~GO WITH THE FLOW~~~~~~~~~~~
For those that go with the flow and don't do anything out of the ordinary when a new year starts, and/or you are living in the present moment every day - that's a great method too and I commend you on being so mindful.
I would love to hear what you do at the end of a year and the start of a new one. Any of the ones listed above? If not, what's missing from this list?
