We’re getting close to the end of 2021 which is a common time for reflecting on the year that was as well as looking ahead to the new year.
Over the past few years I shared some reflection prompts around this time and this year is no different.
I want to point out that while the end of one year and the start of a new one is an AMAZING time to reflect, that doesn’t mean it’s the only time you can do this.
In fact, I’d argue that reflecting regularly (at a cadence that works for YOU) is a great way to practice self-awareness & self-inquiry. It’s also a tool I often share with clients (whenever they need it 🤓)
Reflection Prompts to journal on
- What awesome things did I do/try for the first time?
- Where I have grown the most this year?
- What am I proud of achieving or overcoming this year?
- What did I learn this year?
- What do I want to keep doing?
- What do I want to stop doing?
- What do I want to start doing?
Some of my personal reflections on 2021:
I’m proud of completing my first class back at uni, practicing patience with these injuries and rehab as well as moving into a new role at work, which means that I can really live into my values and mission of helping others.
I have learnt that I’d done a lot of unpacking over the year but turns out there’s still heaps left 😆 I also learnt that I still subscribed to rules and narratives that ultimately weren’t serving and supporting me. As scary and uncomfortable as it is, I get to CHOOSE and define rules for myself and 2022 will be a year of practicing that.
I want to keep showing up as my geeky, weird self – on here and at work.
I want to keep helping others understand how important their mental wellbeing and mind management is and provide tools & tips for them to navigate life in a more compassionate way.
I want to keep practicing patience and compassion with myself.
I want to stop hiding behind indecision and questioning myself 5 times over all the time.
I want to stop nagging and nudging (more than what is objectively needed haha).
I want to start experimenting more on purpose (with business things as well as movement).
