The act of list making is such an essential part of our everyday lives, whether we jot down those lists on paper or create plans in our minds. From scribbling down daily tasks, mapping out lifelong goals, or tallying up our top ten favorite songs. So many of our inner desires and thoughts are revealed through the lists we create.

I've been a serious list maker for as long as I can remember. At work I juggle three different types of lists to keep myself on track. Lately, I've come to realize that list making isn't just about keeping a tally on things I need to remember or work goals I need to complete. Lists can be a great tool for self discovery, exploration, and even fun too!

In light of the new year quickly approaching, I've created 12 lists: one for each month of the year. In this article, you'll find ways to make each month more thoughtful and vibrant by looking inside yourself to reveal your inner wisdom and confidence. All you need is a curious spirit and a readiness to discover the beauty, joy, creativity and power that is already inside of you!

Read through the list, feel the mood of each month or season and enjoy your exploration of self. 2017 is already on its way to being your best year yet, and I couldn't feel luckier to be part of your journey.

Happy Listing
