It’s a wonderful practice to reflect on the year’s journey as it comes to a close.
As you navigate the milestones of 2023, you engage in a powerful form of self-awareness while you selectively choose to embrace the moments of joy, peace, and happiness you experienced thought the year, and choosing to gracefully to let go of other moment.
Gratitude and Growth
Remembering the positive experiences can bring a sense of gratitude, while acknowledging and learning from the challenging moments contributes to personal growth and resilience. This reflective process allows you to carry forward the lessons and wisdom gained into the upcoming year.
Introspection and Evaluation
The end of the year is also a natural time for introspection and evaluation. Revisiting your relationships is a very valuable practice; the ones upgraded, the ones downgraded and the ones you broke free from, while rejoicing in the quality of what you choose to retain.
Shaping the Path to Personal Transformation
Reflecting on habits and patterns is also very powerful, by choosing to keep the habits that align with your desired self, you’re actively shaping the path to personal transformation.
In addition, this reflection allows you to consciously choose to break free from habits that are not serving you nor the people you love anymore to replace them with new ones resonating with ‘The Version’ you are becoming.
Seasoning Challenges with Acceptance
Recall your lost battles, acknowledge your disappointments and frustrations. Choose to season them with hand-picked emotions of acceptance in order to forgive yourself and others to be better equipped for what’s coming.
Celebrating Victories: Patting Yourself on the Shoulder
Don’t forget to pat yourself on the shoulder for your victories and achievements throughout the year no matter how small. Remember to celebrate each success as a step forward!
Looking Ahead to 2024
Here is a sneak peek of the practices that I am keeping in 2024:
Renew my vows and choose Lord Jesus to be my God, Savior and Master.
Build a more intimate relationship with my Creator by meditating daily in His Word, The Bible.
Practice gratefulness for the abundant blessings The Lord is showering me with for “Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above” (James 1:17).
