Two days have passed into the New Year and you’ve had time to recover from your hangover. I’m sure you’ve done some soul-searching on the past year. And I think we can conclude that 2017 can suck a d*ck. I Enjoyed 2017 Like I Enjoy Getting Punched in the Face.
The Mission: To reflect, learn and let go of the past and hope for better times ahead.
I’ll be the first one to admit that 2017 was not my year. 2017 brought me painful heartaches, loss of many friends, multiple deaths, and I left a job that felt more like a home. It was one negative thing after the other. Happiness was sprinkled in throughout the year, but the bad definitely outweighed the good.
I was never one for New Year’s Eve celebrations. Nothing really changes except for a couple of numbers and I always felt that everyone was celebrating a good-bye and saying hello to the unknown. To me, not knowing is scary as hell. However, I found myself, especially toward the last few months of the year, actually getting excited to say good-bye to 2017 and then flip it the bird!
However, that didn’t stop me from reflecting on the year (even though I reflected on it constantly during the year too). And through my reflecting, I came up with a personal End of the Year Reflection sheet. Now, I’m an avid, journaling, fool who is constantly making checklists, tests and research on bettering myself as a whole, so why I started this for this year, is beyond me. However, I’m glad I did it. Therefore, the plan is: 2018 is going to knock my socks off and I can look back on my 2017 Reflection and see how far I’ve come in a year… here’s to hoping, anyway.
The Moral: The purpose of our lives is to learn. 2017 was a growing process. We go through hard times to overcome them, no matter how much we feel like giving up.
Download your copy of the 2017 End of Year Reflection sheet for yourself and leave a comment below on what you hope 2018 will bring to you.
Happy New Year, Embracers… we’ll get through this. I Enjoyed 2017 Like I Enjoy Getting Punched in the Face… here’s to hoping the bruises heal quickly. And just remember, Life is supposed to suck sometimes so you can appreciate the good stuff!
