Wrapping up the year – ten questions to reflect on

Written by Allison Wolf

December 23, 2022. Time for a deep inhale and a longer exhale. You did it. You made it through another intense year.

Life these days is always some form of crazy. Change isn’t something that you have to handle once in a while. It is now part of the rhythm of daily life.

That said, there is much that remains constant. We love, laugh, help, care, and rest.

There is also so much within our control.

As you read this, take a few moments to reflect on the past year. Grab a pen and some paper to take a few notes. I have some questions to guide you over here.

After completing this exercise, I hope you will notice the wins, the advances, and what is getting better.

For me, what got better this year was my community grew. I am also grateful to my readers. Thank you for spending time with me again this year. Wishing you all the best for a joyful New Year!
