Out with the Old….
The end of a year is always a time for reflection. a time to look back on the events of the previous year. Every where we look someone is making a list. Top moments, top songs, best movies, top news stories and of course the polar opposites of those top stories with the worst of all those areas as well.
From a personal standpoint the year end is a perfect time to reflect on the happenings of the previous 12 months. Some of those happenings we can be proud of and for those who are honest enough to admit it, many we would rather forget.
Don’t forget them. Own them. Embrace them. Recognize them. Process them. And then put them behind you never to heard from again. Don’t beat yourself up over them.
Accept full responsibility for them and learn from them but recognize that we often grow more from our mistakes than we do from our victories. If you allow those moments of defeat to dwell in our minds then we are destined to repeat them. Anyone who says that that have nothing to be ashamed for in the course of the previous year are simply being dishonest with themselves.
