Here are a few simple recommendations as the year comes to an end. Take time to look back and reflect on  your year. Get out a notebook and write down things that you remember most. Ask yourself what made you happy or  what made you sad. Write the names of people you have met who have made a difference in your life.  List the places that you have visited that brought happiness and joy. List  the things that you have done that you are proud of and even the things that you are not so proud of. Write the personal goals that you have achieved, those you no longer have as goals, and those you are still working on. Write about any moves you have made or changes in your life. 

The end of the year is a perfect time to reflect and remember both the good and the bad. The purpose for reflection is to store those memories that we cherish most and eliminate those that we don’t. It is a time to look back and see all of the things that we have accomplished and learn from them. Looking back gives us the chance to prepare for the next year taking advantage of our experiences and planning a new year that will be filled with many more enjoyable experiences and fewer disappointments. Taking time to reflect will make a difference in your life and contribute to the fulfilment of your future dreams.

Take the time this year to do this simple task. You will be happy that you did!
