On this final day of 2021, give in to tradition – take a journey through your mind and review the past 365 days you’ve experienced. Consider grabbing a journal or a notebook to jot down your thoughts and feelings about where you started at the top of this year and how life is going as it comes to a close.
Acknowledge your areas of growth and the seasons you may have pushed through, without taking time to pause or reflect. Bravely confront the areas in which you’ve felt stagnant or stuck, without a clear plan to correct course.
Whatever surfaces as you process, decide to use those memories and reflections for good.
Forgive yourself. Forgive others. Celebrate your successes. Give a nod to your meaningful “baby steps” in the right direction.
Craft a practical plan to keep moving forward, one detail and one goal at a time. Decide in this still-raging pandemic to embrace personal peace, grace and excellence, shedding any habits that in 2021 allowed mediocre or treading water to become your comfort zones.
Be in THOSE moments of year-end reverie long enough to gather the fuel you’ll need to seize THIS moment – the birth of 2022 and the collective clean slate to start anew.
Believe you can and guess what? You will.
