“Life is only a reflection of what we allow ourselves to see”
It’s New Years Eve 2021 and tonight Michelle and I are going to one of our favourite brew pubs for beer and nachos. Something both of us enjoy more than fancy balls and cocktail parties. We’ve opted to keep it to the two of us so that we can have a nice date night. Beer and nachos at Campio Brewing Co. One of Michelle’s requests was for it to be a “distraction free” night, which means no cell phones.
I love our distraction free time and recognize that we do not do it enough. I wanted to up the ante a little and make sure that our date night tonight was truly intentional so I sat down and brainstormed 27 year end reflection questions for us to ask each other. I haven’t shared this list with her yet and I am sure it will grow based on our conversation tonight.
I invite you to share these with your partner and see what kind of conversation they provoke. Please drop me a note in the comments with your additions to this list. I have created a downloadable PDF version here in case you want to print them and take them out on your date like I’m going to.
