Year end
Today, on the year end, just before you are about to embark on achieving your new year’s resolutions, it is the perfect time to review the past year. It is time to look at 2008 under a magnifying glass and take notes.

Leave criticism and self bashing out of this report! Only constructive inspection is allowed and for every fault you can find – add at least two admirable achievements you’ve had during the past year.

This week’s Journaling Prompt is to thoroughly review the year 2008 and to put your little trip down memory lane in writing.

The following questions may offer you some guidance:

  1. If you’d sum up the year 2008 in one sentence – what sentence would it be?
  2. What is your most joyous memory from 2008?
  3. What event has been most remarkable for you in 2008?
  4. Which of your 2008 goals did you meet?
  5. What resolution was the hardest to keep? Why? Which was the easiest resolution?
  6. In which ways have you developed and which were your setbacks?
  7. If you were able to change one thing in the past year, what would it be?
  8. What would you not have changed, had you given the opportunity (Despite some harsh circumstances)? Why?
  9. What decision or decisions you’ve made in 2008 were most influential?
  10. Who were the main players in your life in 2008?
  11. Which new friends have you met in 2008? Have you let a friendship get loose? Why?
  12. What book was your 2008 favorite? What song? Which movie?
  13. What new things have you tried in the past year?
  14. What traditions did you keep in 2008? Which traditions did you miss?
  15. What was the most important lesson you’ve learned in 2008?
  16. What new things have you learned about yourself in 2008?
  17. What were the greatest challenges that ran across you in 2008?
  18. What/who motivated you throughout the year?
  19. What major change has 2008 brought to you or do you feel you’re at a status-quo?
  20. If you’d sum up the year 2008 in a single word – what word would it be?

Hopefully these questions has assisted you in your year end review. You might have a clearer view of what your 2009 is about to be (your BEST ever).

For me 2008 has been blissful albeit challenging. I have lived most of 2008 in Dublin, Ireland – a country I had not been to before. I have come to love the friendliness of the Irish people and to admire the bright green slopes in the Irish country side. Fresh out of my wedding, I moved to a place far away from all my family and friends and have established the strongest relationship with my amazing husband. I have visited beautiful countries, including Iceland – a mesmerizing land. On top of that, I have left a job I was good at (being a lawyer) and started this blog and authored a great book on creativity, with both I am very proud.

2009 has a pretty big pair of shoes to fill…
