As we move through a busy holiday season and the year comes to an end, I’ve found that it’s useful to take a little time to be intentional. As you reflect back on 2019 to see what you’ve learned, acknowledge what you accomplished and have gone through. Getting clear on patterns and struggles, seeing victories clearly.

Reflect on 2019

How can we learn from what we did this year, so that we can use it to grow? This is about looking back at how the year went, how we did with our intentions and goals, what happened for us — without judgment. Just getting clear, so that we can learn.

For example:

  • Did you have any great accomplishments this past year? Make a list of the things you’re proudest of, so that you can really appreciate your own efforts. And so that you can reflect on what you did right.
  • Did anything big happen for you? Having a baby, getting a new job, moving to a new place, learning a new language. Appreciate your efforts here too, or be grateful for those who have supported you.
  • How did you do with habits you tried to change or form? What did you do right? What got in the way that you can adjust for?

You can see the value of this reflection — it’s a way to appreciate and be grateful, but also to see what’s been going on, what you can change, what you did right that you can keep doing.
