Welcome to my monthly (or so) collection of exceptional posts from around the web, a good book or two, and practical resources to help you live the best possible life. This is the “New Year” edition.
Month: December 2014
Soon we’ll enter the New Year with all its momentary excitement – fireworks, champagne, and maybe even a midnight kiss.
All that’s fun, but in truth each moment is new, each moment offers a fresh opportunity, each moment can be the one that sparks healing, change, and transformation for you.
I try to capture this essential message in all my writing on Always Well Within. It’s possible because your mind is pliable, flexible, and able to embrace new directions when you give it a chance and a loving nudge.
I enjoy sharing daily inspiration on the Always Well Within Facebook Page in the form of images and quotes, sometimes together, sometimes separately.
I selected these 7 images with 7 powerful quotes to help inspire less stress in your life. The quotes speak succinctly to the triggers that give rise to stress as well as ways to dissolve stress, sometimes in an instant.
I know that living with ease is an ongoing journey, not a sudden, miraculous transformation. And so, we all need reminders, support, and inspiration to let go of the angst! I hope these images and quotes will brighten and lighten your days.
Feel free to use these images in any way that will inspire more ease for you and others. The photos are public domain and the quotes are timeless. Please go ahead and use them on:
- Google Plus
- Your blog
- Your computer desktop
- Your fridge, mirror, or bulletin board
- A page of your journal

I’m having a kick filling out the Create Your Shining Year Workbook (partner link).
I love choosing one powerful word as my guiding star for each year. But, I’ve slacked off when it comes to creating goals and staying accountable to them.
To rectify that, I bought the Shining Year Workbook, Biz Version. I made the right decision! I love it.
Yes, the workbook is artsy, colorful, and fun. But, equally important, it asks all the right questions so you can take your business (or your life if you choose that format) to the next level.
Confession: I’ve been looking back on the year for weeks already. I think it’s that important to carry your insights forward and to close the year well. This is how you become the very best version of you.
I use many of the following 16 questions when I reflect on my year. Because, honestly, it can be hard to remember the whole year without a few prompts.
But you could actually ask them at any time. You could take a quiet moment and reflect upon them at the end of each month, each quarter, half-way into the year, when you feel challenged, or on your birthday. Just change the context of the questions.
