On this last day of the year, I’m working towards ending 2021 mindfully and gratefully. When I was younger, I loved to participate in the Thanksgiving Service held at midnight in Church. It used to be such a meaningful service. Not any more. So instead, I prefer to spend time alone in reflection and planning.
“As the year comes to a close, it is a time for reflection – a time to release old thoughts and beliefs and forgive old hurts. Whatever has happened in the past year, the New Year brings fresh beginnings. Exciting new experiences and relationships await. Let us be thankful for the blessings of the past and the promise of the future.” ― Peggy Toney Horton
Ending 2021 Mindfully and Gratefully
Here are a few things that I’m doing:
a. Looking back on each month and attempting to highlight what I’m most grateful for in that month.
b. Spending time in quiet and mindful meditation. This mini meditation from Headspace is just one mindful tool you could use. You can try out the app for free.
c. Doing a Metta meditation – wishing loving-kindness to all. You can find a YouTube loving-kindness meditation here.
d. Working on writing down how I wish my word of the year for 2022 will translate into actions. If you are still trying to find what your word of the year is, this lovely workbook from Susannah Conway might help you – Find Your Word for 2022!
e. Finalising some broad goals for the year ahead.
d. Creating my Bullet Journal for 2022. I’m keeping really simple this year.
In the days ahead, I will be sharing more about my word of the year, my goals and how I envision 2022 to be.
However you plan to spend the last day of 2021, I wish you well. Stay safe, healthy and blessed. And may 2022 be your best year yet!
