Conscious Reflection

This time of year is magical. It has a vibing festive energy about it, and excitement is building as we ramp up to the new year.

It can also fly by at warp speed.

To ground myself in the now, and not get lost on the runaway train – one of the rituals I practice every year is to consciously reflect on the year that was. Thinking about all the highs, the lows, the challenges, the learnings, the celebrations. A year can zoom by SO fast (as this one has!), so without devoting the time and energy to this review, some of our insights and biggest learnings can get missed.

And you know what they say – a failure is not a failure if you learn from it. (I don’t really subscribe to the notion of “failing” anyway, but that’s another post!)

We cannot see our reflection in running water. It is only in still water that we can see.

I always find being in nature helps me connect within a lot stronger – heading to the beach, sitting in the park, or even lounging in the backyard. But your couch or kitchen table will do just fine too!

Go to your happy place.

Grab your pen, a journal and get comfy. It’s time to take a glance in the rear view mirror.

YEARLY REFLECTION:

  • What were my key milestones?

  • What was my hardest challenge?

  • My learning from this challenge was

  • What worked well for me this year?

  • What didn’t?

  • I am most proud of

  • When did I love the most?

  • I am celebrating

  • I am most grateful for

Once you finish the journalling exercise, spend some time looking over your answers. You may be surprised at what you find. Some themes, some patterns, some a-ha moments await you.

Soo . . .

“Julia is a great coach. She is caring, intuitive and helpful. Each session was unique and beneficial. She provided practical ways for me to focus on my goals, as well as resources and activities to insight action – which she then held me accountable to! I started our sessions feeling very overwhelmed, but left having tools and confidence to start new projects. Working with Julia helped get me get my life back on track.”

“Julia’s Workshop was the first time I’ve actually sat down and thought about my purpose in life. It was so refreshing and an experience I’ll never forget. I gained a deeper understanding of myself and my life purpose, and was then able to realise how my values and goals can now align with that. The tools and insights I gained from Julia’s Workshop have helped keep me on track ever since!”
