Brand New Year!

Reflect on the past year, envision the next, and even plan your New Year's Eve!

Are you ready to jump into the new year? That's so fantastic!

Here's the thing, I believe before we can make something a success, we need to do three things:

  1. Reflect on what has happened up until now to get clear on what we DO want and what we're grateful for
  2. Define what success actually means for us
  3. Create a plan and envision it!

This simple and thorough, printable 16-page PDF includes my favorite end-of-the-year ritual I created for myself almost a decade ago.

Inside, you'll:

  • Go through to create multiple "Top 5 Things" lists to find more good and gratitude in the past year than you had any idea existed!
  • Be prompted to create plans, visions, and goals for the next year in specific categories of life that you might not have even considered!
  • Be guided on how to have a magical New Year's Eve or any night you want to make special, like the night you choose to fill this in!

I want to remind you of where the beauty already lives in your life, even and especially if you're feeling discouraged.

I want to make it easy for you to be clear about where you want to go by understanding how you want to FEEL and who you want to BE first.

I want to help you make filling out this workbook feel like a transformational ritual. I want to remove the rules that this needs to be done on New Year's Eve, and let any day be your new beginning.

Your Instructor


I believe my life’s mission is making other people happy. I came up with the job title of Merriment Maker because nothing else fit, so I made my own place in the world.

For almost twenty-five years, I have struggled with half a dozen mental illnesses, and I know what the dark side looks like very well. I also know it’s possible to live a happy live not in spite of your struggles, but with them, and want to help as many people push through the dark tunnel to the other side where they’ll land on a pile of glitter.

After quitting my day job of 5 years at a psychiatric rehab center, I started my business, Uncustomary, as a way to inspire others through my own life as a living example of what Merriment can look like in a realistic, messy way. I do that through self-love, spirituality, and creativity. My goal is to leave you feeling better than when you found me.
