This time each year I like to reflect on the past year, give thanks, remember the lessons learned and leave what isn’t serving me. 5 days ago I started an Instagram challenge #happyhighlights to help make sure I give thanks and start 2016 excited and clear for all that is to come. I’ve been posting a photo each day on Instagram and Facebook of a highlight from this past year, it’s been such a fun way to reflect on all the good that happened over the past 12 months. I’d love for you to join me on Instagram, Facebook, in the comments below or even in your personal journal. There’s still time, there’s 5 days left of the year!
Take time now to reflect on what you learned, all the fun you had and give thanks for the fresh start that is coming our way. This is also helpful in reflecting on what you want to leave behind such as a bad experience or habit you don’t want to carry with you into the New Year.
This is a great practice, it allows us to remember before we speed into New Years resolutions and goal setting. I’m a big believer in taking stock of what has happened so we can grow and won’t need to relearn any unpleasant lessons again in 2016. If you want to know more about how to set resolutions so they stick and don’t feel like just more “to dos” on your list, check out this blog post I wrote on just that. I’d love to hear from you; what do you do to end the year on a high note and not let all the great things of 2015 be forgotten? I hope you’ve been enjoying the holiday season; I can’t wait to read and see all about your 2015 #happyhighlights.??✌
Happy New Year!
