As we're on the verge of a new year, I take time to look back at what my life was like this year. I like to call it a reflection period or moment of reflection. A time to look back at what I did as well as the decisions and consequences of the year.
I am sure I am not the only one. Most people also happen to be doing so. Looking back at how the year was spent in both personal and business areas.
The reflection period will help plan for the year at hand. It is good that the New Year starts after a long holiday season, therefore it gives you the time to look back.
A year is a long time and involves a lot of decisions both positive and negative. Taking the moment of reflection will prevent making the same negative decisions next year.
I stopped making New Year resolutions when I found out I could only fulfill fewer than half of them. But for those who make them, it is important to look at how much you have achieved.
New Year resolutions are good as they help plan for the year, but in the end of the year it is important to look at how you have done. It is important to look at how other issues around you have done.
Know how your family and friends think of the year, it also helps to bond your relationship with them. Observe how the country has been, your favourite sports team... all these might help you know what to expect in the next year.
Every year has its ups and downs. It does not matter if you have many downs and few ups or vice versa, be grateful for all that you have achieved and pray for a chance to see another year. I know I am.
Happy Festive Season!
