At some point during the past 12 months I read this post and it resonated with me with regard to letting go of 2015. So I filed it away for this very moment. The year in review post.
The premise of the aforementioned post was “3 simple questions to help you let go of the year that was”. The questions being –
- What can I thank the Universe for?
- What life lessons did I learn about myself and the world?
- What held me back that I want to master?
Easy questions to answer huh?
In truth, 2015 wasn’t a bad year. It wasn’t up there as my greatest of years but it wasn’t bad. It was certainly a year of change after being made redundant in 2014. I started a new job (new career really) with a new company and it’s had it’s challenges, if only in adjusting to working Monday-Friday again and having to get even better at juggling everything.
So, what can I thank the Universe for?
I can certainly appreciate all the blessings in my life – I am thankful for my family and that we all have our health, my amazing friendships, the opportunities that have been given to me to learn new things, the chance to grow both personally and professionally. I can thank the Universe that I live in a prosperous country where I have these opportunities and freedoms and I can thank the Universe that I get to spend my free time with the people that I love doing things that I love.
What life lessons have I learnt during 2015?
The ‘aha’ moments! Well more than ever, I learnt that when the chips are down, you really know who your friends are. I learnt that you’re never too old to learn new tricks. I learnt that with a little courage and a leap of faith you can do pretty much anything (or at least have a go at trying!). I learnt that when it comes down to it, I’m a damn fine juggler – I can keep those balls in the air!
What do I need to master in 2016?
I need to master confidence. Generally, I am pretty confidence but I still have moments where I just clam up “I CAN’T DO THIS” and I know it’s not true. I know I am capable, I just need to believe in myself more.
I feel a bit BLAH going into 2016, as 2015 went by in the blink of an eye and I’m not sure I achieved everything I wanted to which is always disappointing, but hey, I just need to use that to my advantage to push myself forward in 2016, right?
