As we say goodbye to 2016, we reflect on what happened during the year. Our minds are designed to automatically look at the negative things that happened, so we can learn from it and protect ourselves in the future. It’s also important to look at the positive and wonderful things that happened, so we know what goodness we what more.
If your year was filled with uncertainty, grief and loss, it can be difficult to see any nuggets of good during the year. Reflection is important, to help us see that even if it was only once, something good happened in 2016. It can help lift our spirits as we move into the new year.
When we reflect on our year, it’s important to remember that we did the best we could with the knowledge and information we had. If we’d known better, we would have done better. It’s so easy to get caught up in a cycle of self-criticism and self-judgement when we look back on our year. The purpose of reflection is to help figure out how to move life forward.
There are three key questions to reflect on about the past year.
Did I accomplish what I wanted to this year?
What have I done well this year and what made it so effective?
What can I do better and what do I need to do to accomplish that?
