At the end of the day when we go to sleep, how many of us think about the achievements or learning of the day?
And on the same, when we enter in a new year, we are so high to take new resolutions about family, health, money, travel etc. etc.
But have we ever made a list of our achievements of the past year?
I know it is so easy to get caught up into the past bad experiences and think about them again and again. The bad moments of our lives are so strong that sometimes we forget to enjoy the moments that brought us joy in our life. We spend so much time focusing on what went wrong with us or what we didn’t get.
That’s why it’s so important to slow down and dig into what we achieved and learned over the year. As we are in the process to welcome 2019, so we all will take some time to think and write about everything that happened over the past 12 months.
Whether you’re new to writing or a regular blogger, answering these 25 questions will help you let go of the past year and move into the new year with a fresh mindset!
Let’s start our relaxing ritual for 30 minutes or so. Brew a cup of tea or hot cocoa, sit by the fireplace, light a candle, and play your favorite music while you write!
