Part of creating a new vision for your life and in putting those new ideas in motion, is to first, prime the pump of your life and prune stuff from your life – to get into preparation for purpose and for living a life that you love.  To prep and prime for your new vision a little self-reflection will be in order.  One simple way we can self-reflect is to think about, in one or two words, what inspires us so we can keep our focus on that, and what we need to prune, work on or get rid of in our lives, usually a character trait that holds us back, so we can flow into our best life.
