Satori Wisdom ~ Time for Reflection

Reflection provides insights into your life as you move from one year to the next. Looking back at what you've learned and how you've grown will help you step confidently into a new decade. Remember that hindsight is 20/20. 

“Life can only be understood backwards; but it must be lived forwards.” ~ Soren Kierkegaard


If you kept a journal or planner in 2019 you can use it to review your year. Start by writing all that you accomplished and then celebrate your successes. You may want to throw yourself a dance party for one. Play your favorite music and dance to the vibration of success.

It's a good idea to get away by yourself for a day or even an hour or two to reflect on the past year. This is a good time to focus on what you learned in 2019, then you can take all that wisdom with you into the new year.

Take a look at your relationships and honor the ones that have been strengthened as well as the ones that have been completed. Acknowledge any new relationships that were formed in 2019 and appreciate the relationships that continue to flourish year after year. 

Review your goals for the year and acknowledge how well you did reaching them. If there were any you didn't reach, ask yourself what stopped you. Remember that a goal is a dream with a deadline and an action plan.

Were you able to break any destructive habits in the past year? If so, honor yourself for this accomplishment. Habits operate at a subconscious level so it takes a high level of conscious attention to overcome them.

Reframe perceived failure as simply producing a result you didn't want. When you learn from the experience it will lead you to getting the result you do want in the future.

Did you form any good habits in 2019? If so, what was the desired outcome of implementing these new habits? It's important to celebrate what worked for you in the past so that these positive behaviors will continue to enhance your life in the next decade. 

Love and light,
