Most people will close the chapter of their year without reflecting on the lessons learned or celebrating the enormous accomplishments over the previous 12 months. THIS is a recipe for the never-satisfied longing of a better tomorrow.
YOU ARE NOT the same person you were on January 1st of 2018. You have another year of experience under your belt, 12 months worth of new knowledge, 52 weeks of empowering rituals and rhythms, 365 days of practiced habits and skills.
So as we move into the New Year, make sure not to leave the old one behind. Looking back can be an incredibly effective step for moving forward. Through the simple practice of review, we can experience a well-earned sense of pride and fulfillment for all that we have achieved.
We can identify and learn from our mistakes, and shine awareness on current opportunities in our lives. And we can empower ourselves to step into the New Year with clarity and intention, and to make it – once again – the very best year of our lives.
“What we call the beginning is often the end. And to make an end is to make a
beginning. The end is where we start from.” –T. S. Eliot
