It is a New Year!
Time for reflection, gratitude, and letting go (forgiveness). As a Life Coach, I discuss a variety of topics that many people push under the carpet. Sometimes these subjects are uncomfortable. They are even awkward to me at times, but awareness and having strategies to cope is important to move on, let go and live a happy life.
Journaling and reflecting on the past year gets us geared up for whatever 2019 brings our way.
Here are some journaling and reflections prompts to get you started.
Reflection: Looking back at 2018
- How was 2018?
- What were some of the changes that occurred in your life?
- What is a major lesson that you learned from your job in 2018?
- What will you do differently in 2019?
Having gratitude reduces the feelings of envy, produces happy memories, lets us experience good feelings and helps with reducing stress.
Gratitude: Looking back at 2018
- What was your biggest accomplishment in your personal life in 2018?
- What was your biggest accomplishment in your work life in 2018?
- What was one thing you’ve learned in 2018 that you’re thankful for?
- What was one aspect about your health that you’re more grateful for?
Letting Go and Forgiveness: Looking back on 2018
One of my latest blog post I discussed Damaged Relationships and suggestions on how to halt unkind words. Forgiveness is also part of the healing process.
In the past year, I have been seeing, reading and hearing about the Hawaiian Forgiveness Prayer called Ho’oponopono. From what I have read the forgiveness prayer can be said in any order. Repeating the prayer assist with moving forward toward forgiveness.
Ho’oponopono – Hawaiian Prayer of Forgiveness – Asking for forgiveness!
Please forgive me
I love you
Ho’oponopono – Hawaiian Prayer of Forgiveness – Forgiving Someone!
I forgive you
I thank you
I love you
What am I grateful for? I am truly thankful for my family, friends, and followers who support me with my coaching business. 🙂 I hope the journaling prompts and the Forgiveness Prayer help you in your life’s journey in 2019. ~ Patti
