The end of the year is a wonderful time for reflection. As we say goodbye to 2017, we can review what was good in 2017 and what wasn’t so good. When we reflect on our year, it’s important to remember that we did the best we could with the knowledge and information we had. If we’d known better, we would have done better. It’s so easy to get caught up in a cycle of self-criticism and self-judgement when we look back on our year. The purpose of reflection is to help figure out how to move life forward.
It can be easy to look at the past year and see the things you didn’t achieve. Or notice the things that didn’t go as planned. It’s also important to see the things that you did achieve and how well you handled the unexpected. 2017 has been a mix of blessings and lessons that all lay the foundation for 2018.
When we review our year, we can use that insight for personal development, so we can create our best year ever! Out with the old and in with the new, may you be happy the whole year through! Happy New Year! See you in 2018!
