As we approach the new year it can be easy to start looking ahead to the possibilities that await. Instead of rushing into that, I want us to take this window of time before January 1st to look back on the previous year. I know for me that when I stop and take the time to look back I am often blown away by all the amazing things that have happened.
Here are some questions to help you, feel free to just answer these in your head or may I suggest writing them out, perhaps in a journal:
What have you accomplished?
What have you learned?
How have you grown?
What are you grateful for?
Did anything unexpected happen, if so what?
How have I changed?
How have I surprised myself?
Please do not feel that you have to answer all of these questions, just use them as a prompt to get you started. Keep in mind to look at the whole previous year when answering, you might be surprised at how far you have come!
Get to it my friends! If you have any questions that help you reflect please share them in the comments section!
