Looking Back On 2014 & New Year's Goals For 2015

I am always a little sad to see the old year go, but excited to welcome a new year – it is a bitter sweet time. I always think it is important to look back over the of the year to see what has change, where you have gone, what you have done, smile and laugh at the good memories, learn from the old memories, and grow as an individual.

Truthfully over the course of my lifetime I have definitely made some bad decisions/made mistake and have had negative experiences, but given the opportunity to go back in time and do things differently I wouldn’t take it; I’m happy where I am in life, excited about what the future holds, and if I hadn’t had those negative experiences or made some poor decisions along the way I might not be the person I am today. Now, don’t get me wrong I have had so many positive experiences, opportunities, and for the most part have made excellent decisions, but sometimes we learn more from failure and bad experiences then we do from success and positive experiences. The positive experiences help us get through the bad, and the bad experiences make us stronger. I like to believe that I am always in the exact right place at the exact right time, even if it doesn’t feel like it.

Success and failure, happiness and sadness, positive memories and negative memories, good decisions and bad decisions is what life is made of – it’s the things that puts a smile on our face, make us grow as an individual, and makes us grateful for what we have. As a fun way to reflect back on 2014 I have put together a fun fill-in reflection sheet above, feel free to print it off and fill it in!
Now it’s time to move into the New Year of 2015, get excited about new goal, new experiences, and new possibilities to come our way. I prefer to think of a resolution as more of a goal or a promise to myself. Never be afraid to make a resolution/goal at the start of the year in fear you won’t be able to achieve it. Making a resolution/goal, attempting it, and achieving it are all three separate successes, so you can never really fail, making a resolution or “promise to yourself”, as I like to refer to it, is just to first step. 

I really enjoy making promises to myself/goal – I always get a little bit of an adrenaline rush when I mark something off a to-do list and when I see that everything on the sheet is marked off, well… I’m just about as excited as a five-year old at a birthday party with a chocolate cake in front of them. If you are like me and have come to somewhat dislike the word ‘resolution’ try making a few New Year’s promises to yourself and make it a more personal experience. Above is a fill-in goal/promises to self sheet, feel free to print it off and fill in the blanks!

Be sure to check back this weekend to read my reflection on 2014 and see what my goals are for 2015. I hope everyone is have a very happy and blessed New Year’s Day! I have a feeling that 2015 just might be the best year yet!

‘This Year… Believe that anything is possible, start each day with goals, eat more real food, but good books and make time to read them, drink water, exercise daily even when it sounds like a terrible idea, shop for quality not quantity, purge the unnecessary and decrease clutter, hug the ones I love, find the best in others, show others the best in me”
