Completing the year

Taking stock of a year is one of the most useful things to do for yourself. Life will have provided you with many opportunities to learn about who you are and who you would like to become during this busy year that is now coming to its end.

It may be good to draw up a list of just how much you have learnt. Write down all the good experiences on one side and all the experiences that you feel are negative or did not contribute to your plans to achieve your dreams and goals.

Try to make sure that you keep this list balanced. Look at the negative side and think of what positive learning/life lessons you have gained. Do this by looking at these experiences in all areas of your life: emotional, physical, spiritual, financial, social, mental and in your work. You may be surprised to find that the negative experiences are actually the ones that have made you grow as a human being.

Sometimes the aspects of ourselves that we refuse to acknowledge are aspects we see in others as bad or irritating. It is a hard fact of life that what we see around us is a mirror of what is within us as thoughts and feelings. We need to work at controlling our thoughts and feelings while studying our reactions to gain some insight as to why we perceive some people or events as negative.

Why not end this year with a good tally of what you have invested in yourself? Take the experiences that you felt were not good and see how you can turn the memory of them around so that they can work for you in a positive way. Storing negative emotions is not conducive to good health, both mentally and physically. Our emotions are stored in our cells and we need to keep them as pure and simple as we can.

As this year draws to a close, focus on good experiences. As my brother says: “Life is about banking happy memories!” Nourish your soul so that your new year will be approached from a positive standpoint.
