Listen to the full episode to hear end of year inspiration:

With this being the last week of 2023, I wanted to take an opportunity to share some reflections I’ve had from this past year. I’ve been open on this podcast about certain things I went through, even resulting in me taking a break from this podcast. With that experience, along with other personal and work related things, I wanted to share some end of year inspiration with you. So in today’s episode, I’m sharing 25 takeaways from 2023 that hopefully you can use going forward in the new year.

When I reflected on the year, I didn’t realize all that I accomplished, learned or adapted to in just one year. Each of my 25 takeaways involve personal and professional growth, ways to take breaks, how to find you authentic community and support, and focusing on the positivity and joy in your life. By sharing my list, I hope to encourage you to make your own list that gives you some end of year inspiration as you embark on another year in 2024!

In this episode on end of year inspiration, I share:
  • My 25 takeaways from the year and how they impacted my life
  • How hearing other’s reflections can be a reminder in your own life
  • The takeaways range from personal and professional growth, self-care, making connections, and finding gratitude 
  • A big thank you to my listeners and an appreciation for your loyalty and support
