  1. I’m finding that at this point in the year there are a lot of opportunities to reevaluate how we want to create our lives.
    Having people over for Christmas, New Years resolutions or reflections, packing to go away on holiday etc. all shine a spotlight on our homes, wardrobes and minds and whether they align with our real values. It can be uncomfortable to realise this, but it’s also an opportunity to create some change. Thanks for these great tips and I’m looking forward to hearing more about desire mapping :)

  2. I appreciate the sweetness of this post, Courtney. Life is different, life is good when we focus on meaning and gratitude. Thank you for including my course in your recommendations. And, thank you for all the goodness you share with others.

    Good luck on your new running challenge! Nice and steady, that’s all you need :)
    I’m a big fan of Matt at “NMA”. I can’t believe you are also!
    You have just inspired me (yet again :)) with all 8 of your commitments!

  4. I too love the “clean slate ” of a New Year and will be Desire Mapping my way to 2014 too. Love the other suggestions as well and as always Courtney you are an inspiration!

    Have you ever given thought to running in a pool? I know it sounds kind of rediculous but it’s actually an incredible work out and so much easier on the joints. It may also help you build up to more success outside the pool as well. Good luck! :)

    Thanks for giving us so much to think about as we close out one year and enter a new one!

  7. I clicked ont his blog post in my reader with hesitation, I’ve read so many posts about how to make life more meaningful lately (I suppose with the holidays and new year, there’s tons of time for reflection), however it’s mainly a lot of self-reflective garbage about yoga and meditation and trying your best. You give practical ideas here, thanks ;)

  8. Hi Courtney! Thanks for this lovely post as usual… I am thilled that you want to try veganism… After 6 years vegetarian I tried it 10 months ago and it is amazing for several reasons…
    I can’t wait to see what the desire map is all about…
    And personnally, I’ll go with #8!!! Big time!!? By the en of the year I want to be my own boss amd be able to sustain my minimalist living!
    Take care,
    Happy Holidays to you and your loved ones

  9. I was so excited when I found out Joshua & Ryan are visiting Australia and signed up immediately. I love this recap and especially love reading of your newfound joy at city apartment living. We’ve lived in ours for 8 years and absolutely love it.
