A Year in Review: Pausing to Reflect, Cherish, and Learn

December is an ideal time to pause and reflect on the ups and downs of the past year.

 

Introduction:

As the year draws to a close, it’s a natural inclination to take a moment to reflect on the journey we’ve traveled. The past twelve months have been filled with highs and lows, challenges and triumphs. Now is the time to pause, take stock, and store away the good memories while embracing the profound lessons that have shaped our experiences.

A Year in Review: Pausing to Reflect, Cherish, and Learn 2023 with Janet Groom

1. Cherishing the Highlights:

Begin your reflection by savouring the highlights of the year. Identify moments of joy, achievement, and connection. These memories are the gems that illuminate the tapestry of your life, and consciously cherishing them enhances their lasting impact.

2. Acknowledge the Challenges:

Reflecting doesn’t only involve celebrating successes but also acknowledging challenges. What hurdles did you overcome? What lessons did adversity impart? Recognising these struggles is a important testament to your resilience and growth.

3. Store the Good Memories:

As you reflect, actively store away the good memories. Visualise them as treasures locked away in a chest, ready to be revisited whenever needed. Whether it’s a shared laugh, a personal achievement, or a moment of quiet contentment, these memories serve as beacons of positivity and constant reminders of the good things in your life.


Memories - store the good memories from your past year

4. Learnings:

Every experience, even the seemingly mundane, carries a lesson. What have you learned about yourself, your relationships, and the world around you? Extracting these learnings from your experiences is a valuable step toward personal growth and development. Taking onboard these learnings support us to move forward away from repeating the same mistakes.

5. Express Gratitude:

Cultivate a spirit of gratitude for the lessons, the joys and even the challenges. Gratitude is a powerful force that amplifies positive emotions and fosters a mindset of abundance.

6. Set Intentions for the Future:

Reflecting isn’t just about the past; it’s a bridge to the future. Consider what intentions you want to set for the coming year. How can you build on your experiences to create a more fulfilling and purposeful life?

7. Celebrate Personal Growth:

Finally, celebrate the growth you’ve undergone. Reflect on the person you were at the beginning of the year and compare it to the person you are now. Acknowledge your evolution, both in terms of strengths gained and challenges conquered. See how far you have come along your path and recognise that it may not have been exactly as you had planned, however, it has brought you closer to where you need to be.

Conclusion:

As you embark on this reflective journey, remember that every experience, whether joyous or challenging, contributes to the rich tapestry of your life. Take the time to store away the good memories, glean insights from your learnings, and step into the new year with a heart full of gratitude and a spirit eager for growth.

In reflection, we find not only a celebration of the past but a roadmap for the inspiring chapters yet to come.

Pause and Reflect upon the past year

 

Reflection is a time to pause
and look back and see how far you have travelled
on your life journey.
It is a grounding experience
and helps you weigh up
and acknowledge your growth.

4. EMBRACE MINDFULNESS AND MEDITATION

  • Mindfulness practices can help reduce stress and increase your capacity for experiencing joy in the present moment. Live in the moment – by tuning into your present, you are focussing on the here and now which means your mind cannot be dwelling on the past and worrying about the future.

Gratitude

Gratitude is riches. Complaint is poverty.

– Doris Day

Do you have an Attitude of Gratitude?

During the upheaval, turmoil and chaos of the last few years, I will put my hand up and admit that I feel into a negative fug of complaining. Everything felt wrong moving back the UK as the pandemic unfolded and I struggled to find my way through the strange and unfamiliar landscape. I wasn’t living in our own home, and having left the safety of our mountain home in the Swiss Alps, I had anxiety overload with it all.

I felt like a fraud as I know many ways to help work through this type of scenario, however, all my knowledge and wisdom went out the window.

Slowly, I found my way back to building a more positive outlook by leaning into the power of GRATITUDE

GRATITUDE is a powerful food for your SOUL

It is all too easy to be sucked into a cycle of complaining. This lowers your vibrational energy, sapping your energy systems and dimming them – it allows illnesses to take hold.

When you become aware that you are complaining or critizing – flip the script and find things to be thankful for.

I recommend a simple daily GRATITUDE practice of either writing down a list of things you are thankful for during your day, or say a prayer of thanks and note key things for which you feel blessed just before falling asleep.

This practice will help raise your energy and with practice you will shift your focus to find things that make you feel thankful.

Allow GRATITUDE to help your SOUL SHINE
