Ending the Year on a Positive Note

Ending the Year on a Positive Note

Happy end of 2019 to you all! I am grateful to be sharing with you on this very auspicious day of a calendar year. I believe that time constructs allow us the opportunity to reflect and adjust, based on our goals and dreams, and so, as we begin to say farewell to 2019, I felt it best to offer up my rituals and habits to close out the year.

I believe that each calendar year presents challenges, lessons, opportunities, and new growths.  Sometimes one year can feel harder than others, and some years feel more blessed than most. It’s not up to me to tell you how 2019 went for you, but I am here, on this eve before a new year, to offer the opportunity to reflect, pause, and take time for gratitude for what all has passed.

If we can’t take time to reflect and understand, we are destined to repeat our life’s circumstances over and over again.

I personally love reflecting on years past, going through old photos and writings, noticing what has changed in my own perspective. I always see a shift in tone, and for me this feels like a meaningful sign of growth.

Whether or not you feel that 2019 has been good to you, I ask you to take some time today to honor what it has presented. If there were hardships, reflect on the tough lessons they provided. If there were blessings, cultivate gratitude for the good fortune. Life will always present ups and downs, and it is on us to do our best to interpret them in our own best interest.

I have felt a multitude of emotions this year. Some moments felt insurmountable, and others were incredibly joyful. During the highs and lows, I’m reminded that life is always changing. We are not promised a new day. Every day is a gift, and with inner strength, we can overcome anything.

I love the last day of the year because it nudges me to pause, take inventory, and reflect. What went well? What didn’t go as I hoped? What do I desire to achieve next? What do I wish to let go of?

These are the questions I ask myself, as prompts for deep reflection. In this fast paced world we live in, I encourage you to take time to get personal with your 2019 experiences. What made you grow? What made you learn? What made you grieve? What made you joyful?

We have had unique experiences and opportunities that have molded and changed us. Take time for yourself to honor just that. Know that come 2020, a brand new set of adventures and challenges are in store, and I have faith that we are all ready. Always remember precious friends, we were made for these times.

I’m wishing you the happiest, most peaceful, loving, and supportive end to this decade.

With all the hope, love, and possibility for the new year ahead,

xoxo, Michelle
