How was your year? It seems 2018 was a challenging and exciting year for many of us. The end of the year is a good time to self-reflect so I thought I would give you some journal questions to play with. Journaling helps us know ourselves better. It also gives us the opportunity to solidify our discoveries.
Reflecting on the year for myself brings a big out breath. A year ago we were living at my in-laws in a caravan looking for a new home and now we are having our first summer in our partially renovated (house renovators need support groups!), tropical hideaway.
I enjoyed teaching past life regression in Auckland and Tauranga as well as having 26 weeks of super fun facilitating Tarot classes. I also finished my first book and had it fully edited - that task is finalised tomorrow, the last day of the year!
Personally I also managed to squeeze in some brand new trauma memories popping up. Yikes! That had me revisiting the toughest feeling there is, shame. In hindsight it was another wonderful learning opportunity and powerfully healing. Now there is even more authentic me in the foreground!
Here are some end of the year journal questions to play with –
What did I learn about myself this year?
What new experiences did I have?
What did I accomplish that I am proud of?
What were my biggest challenges?
How did I help others this year?
What am I being called to work on?
What guidance would I give myself if I began 2018 again?
What will I take from this year into my new year?
It's powerful to vocalise the answers to these questions too, so maybe you share with a friend or say your answers out loud as well as writing them down.
Wishing you a light filled New Year
