We are approaching the end of the year but before we head to 2019 with our New Year’s resolution, let’s close the year by expressing our gratitude and reflecting on what we have learned. Some people might find this time of the year to be a little difficult and hard to go through. Let’s end this year with positivity, while celebrating the holidays and looking forward to a brand new year..
Here are my 3 suggestions on how to say goodbye to 2018 and hello to 2019.
Pick a day and celebrate just you
Before Dec 31, choose a day with your own “me time.” Do things that you enjoy, as this is a day to celebrate for everything that you have achieved all year, regardless of how small it was. It may not always have been easy juggling between work and your family but you made it. You have done it to the best of your abilities. Now, you can sit back and enjoy the last few weeks of December. If it is a whole day at the spa, or at the mall for just shopping and watching the movie, do it. Do whatever makes you happy because this is your day. It’s the day that you can pat yourself on the back for being the wonder woman that you are.
Pick a day and say thanks
At the same time, it’s a very good idea to say thanks to the universe for everything that was given to you. I usually do a little ceremony to say thank you for about 30 minutes. I will close my eyes, meditate and visualize everything that has happened with no judgement, except gratitude. I also acknowledge people that have helped me along the way by sending them my thanks and love. As a suggestion, you can also write thank you cards and mail it to them, so that they know how much you appreciate them. It’s always good knowing that other people are thinking of you.
Pick a day and write a journal
This is the moment where you spend some time reflecting on everything that has happened. Make a point to write all your adventures – and misadventures – down as a way to remember what you went through this year. The lessons learned, people that matter, or new goals for next year. It can be anything so don’t put too much pressure on yourself. Just write them down so you can remember your trials and tribulations, while reminiscing about your achievements, as well.
Regardless of which you decided to do, stay positive and look forward to a fresh new year. I wish you a great holiday with your loved ones. I hope that you will be surrounded with great vibes in the upcoming year.
