It’s amazing the impact looking back can have on how I feel about the year. In this week’s Thriving in Motherhood podcast episode, I am reviewing my 2022 with you and giving some tips for how you can look at your year as well.
Spoiler alert – I started this activity thinking things weren’t that great and ended feeling like I was on top of the world and could do anything). As a close friend recently said, “You are very good at not seeing all that you are not doing.”
Looking back tells the story of your growth and allows you to see what is real. It gives you a chance to celebrate your learning, growth, family adventures, progress, milestones, and important memories.
From this place, you can gather clues about what is important to you, what’s missing in your life, and how you want to grow and change during the next year. This also brings you to a place of momentum, energy, and enthusiasm for your life. That is a place that is fun to think about possibilities of the next year from.
Whatever season of motherhood you find yourself in, this essential practice of creating your vision for the year will bring purpose to your days and joy into your life. It allows you to pause and decide what matters to you and what type of life you want to live.
If you’re ready to start the new year off right, I invite you to join the 6-day Create Your Vision Challenge and create a life you are excited to wake up to each day.
And, if your brain is even remotely like mine, and you struggle to see all the amazing things you’re doing, check out this episode to jump-start your review process.
