It’s that time of year for a year in review reflection.

We made it! With all of our strength, resilience, and through the power of sisterhood, together we have survived what many would consider on of the most difficult years in a while.

Aside from an election that felt more like the end of the world than the beginning of a term, there were individual struggles and personal triumphs that we each endured and pushed through. I so proud of you, of us!

But it wasn’t all bad. We got to use our voices for the things that matter to us. We got to cheer on a whole host of women living out their black girl magic like Issa Rae, Tiffany Haddish, Tracee Ellis Ross, Serena Williams and perhaps even you!

As a new year approaches we have another 365 days to make more magic, fight for more change, open our minds and our hearts to weeks and weeks of possibility. I’m excited for this. I’m ready for this. I know you are too.

I don’t know how you usually lead into a new adventure but I like to do it with intentionality and focus. This means taking account of what we have learned, what we have gained, what we have lost, and what power we are ready to come with into the new year!

Below I’ve listed a few questions that you can use to get you started. A few things to ponder to jumpstart you for the next phase of the journey.
