Dear reader ♡
There are only a few weeks left in 2017, which means you're probably already looking forward to the new year! Maybe you're already making plans, setting intentions, thinking of New Year's Resolutions...
But wait! Believe it or not, but 2017 might still have some gifts left for you. Did you already sit down and reflect about how this year went? Please don't start the New Year without properly ending this one!
I think it's important to think about the past year, just because there's so much to learn from it. And how can you create a good future if you haven't even learned from the past yet?
In addition to that, you probably made so many good memories of this year, maybe even without realizing it! Being thankful for those awesome moments will help you to shine positive vibes out into the Universe, which might just bring you even more good things next year.
You might find out that you were stronger than you thought. Or more positive than you thought. Or that really, not everything was bad - there were some good parts, too. And that will help you let go of the old year and start the new year with a clear mind and a fresh slate.
If you have no idea how to start, journaling might be a good idea! Here are some questions to help you write about and reflect on the past year. You definitely don't need to do all of them! Just choose one or more that you like and write about whatever comes up. Or you could also make a collage or drawing about them!
1. What's the most amazing thing you've learned?
This could just be a cool science fact or a major life lesson. Either one is completely valuable! :)
2. How did you surprise yourself this year?
Did you discover a talent you didn't yet know about? Or could it be that you're much stronger than you imagined yourself to be?
