As we come to the end of the year I tend to enter a ‘reflective’ kind of mode. I ponder what worked this year and what didn’t. What I loved and what was not-so-awesome.
For me a big part of this always involve re-evaulating my online space and business, how I show up online, the things I’ve created and what I’ve been writing about.
As always, it’s been super interesting to discover what posts have had the biggest impact on you this year and what was been read the most.
Huge gratitude to everyone who has clicked through and read, left comments and shared my posts around. Your presence here really means a lot to me. Thank you!
And on that note, here are the top 10 posts you loved the most this year.
I believe one of the most powerful things you can to is to ask yourself questions. One of my favourite parts of being a coach is getting to ask my clients really powerful questions. Which is why I’ve collated 76 powerful questions that you can ask yourself today, tomorrow, when you’re not feeling great about life — whenever really.
These questions will spark self-discovery, inspire positive change, and make you stop and think about yourself and the way you’re living life. Plus there’s also a FREE mini (and by that I mean 13 page) workbook for you to print out and use to explore these questions.

One of the most powerful things I’ve ever done was to stop buying into my what my inner critic (or Mean Girl) was saying. Doing this changed everything — and made me stop holding myself back from doing what I really wanted.
I truly believe that our inner critic will run the show if we let it, which is why I really believe in the work Melissa Ambrosini is doing in the world — and in particularly with her new book: Mastering Your Mean Girl.
This book is like a love-soaked pep talk / wake up call from your best pal and powerfully helps you to stop the negative self-talk, which is why I’ve shared 5 of my favourite things I’ve taken away from this book.

I’m a huge advocate for setting goals to help you create and live the life you want. I truly believe in the power of goal-setting and I have experienced first-hand how powerful it can be.
I’ve found that for myself (and also with my clients) that when I have a goal but I don’t feel inspired by it, I’m so much more less likely to feel motivated to taking action towards making it happen — even if it’s something I really, really, truly want.
This is why I truly believe that we need to feel inspired by the goals we set ourselves. Because it is when we feel this way that we are empowered to move towards achieving it. So in this post I’ll be sharing with you 9 ways you can set goals that will empower you to take action — and I’ve also got some super useful resources to help you do this.

How can I feel good about where I am right now — even though I’m far away from where I want to be? How can I close the gap between where I am right now and where I want to be? How can I keep taking action even though my dreams feel so far away?
These are things that come up for my clients all the time and I know it’s something that I continually deal with as well.
It can be really hard to keep going when you feel so far away from your dreams. It can be hard to keep showing up, to keep taking action and to feel okay right now when what your aiming for feels so very far away. This is why I’ve shared 7 ways to help you be okay with where you are now (even if you far away from where you want to be) — while still working towards what you want.
What’s really important. As I mentioned above — I believe this may be the most important thing I’ve ever written. I know the message is something that’s super important to me and is something I continue to try and live my life by.
How to add more gratitude into your life. I’ve been practicing gratitude with varying levels of devotion for over a decade now. During that time I’ve experience how incredibly powerful adding more gratitude into your life can be. This post is an updated version of my first ever gratitude post here on the blog. I hope it can help you add more gratitude into your life.
Just take the first step. This post shows what facing one of my biggest fears has been like and how I navigate doing things that scare me. It’s simple, but this approach has really been serving me well.
50 simple ways to be generous. Generosity is a really important value to me and something I endeavour to make apart of my regular life. Putting together this post (and the checklist) was something I found others found useful, but I also find myself referring back to this post myself when I want to give more.
You can do things that scare you. This post is gives you an insight into what saying yes to doing my first ever speaking gig was really like for me. Public speaking is something I’m really afraid of so I loved giving a behind-the-scenes look at something I found really challenging.
