Reviewing Your Year in Love and Sex
Show Notes

I am a nerd for planning. I love to envision the future. I love to review the past. And New Year's time is totally a time when I want to look over the past year and see the themes and then set intentions for the new year with my husband. But pretty early in our relationship, I got the picture that Kurt was not a planner in the same way that I was. And perhaps you can relate. I find that in most couples, there's one person who's way more into this stuff than the other. And that's perfectly alright. I'm here to help both of you have a peaceful and joyful way of moving through a process of really capturing the gems from the past year, setting intentions for the coming year, and keeping your relationship on a really powerful trajectory. 

As you listen to this episode, we’re talking about:

  • The three most common questions I get about reviewing your year and setting intentions
  • Why it’s worth it to review your year together
  • How to have a meaningful review of the year even if your partner is not really into planning
  • Identifying the themes of your past year together
  • The free live events I’ll be hosting to help you in your planning and review process

And more.  

E.g. Join the conversation by listening, then share your story or response on our voicemail at 206-659-9865 or inside our free Conscious Couples' Circle on Mighty Networks.

"Truly amazing relationships get stronger over time, instead of grinding each other down over time. They're intentional."
