New Year’s Inquiry

Instead of a new year’s resolution, I have decided to upon a new year’s inquiry. This is to reflect, process, and discover. I would like to reflect on my current situation, how I got here, and where my trajectory is headed. I would like to process everything that has happened, and everyone that has taken part in my life. Lastly I would like to discover how I feel about events, people, and priorities. Am I allocating my resources, time, and effort in places and ways that are aligned with my priorities? Am I supporting and encouraging myself?

Suggested exercise – choose a couple of your favorite questions, and start journaling … see where it takes you. Afterwards, take time to reflect on what you discovered, and what it means to you.

  • What was my favorite memory from this year?
  • What made it special?
  • Who have I stayed in touch with?
  • Who have I lost touch with?
  • What changed this year that was not in my control?
  • How did that make me feel?
  • How did I adjust to the change?
  • What is different about me from last year?
  • What can I do to continue to support myself through change?
  • What has helped me stay grounded this year?
  • What do I want more of in my life?
  • What can I do to make space for more of that in my life?
  • What do I feel I could spend less time on?
  • How is my mental health?
  • Was there anything that I did this year that helped my mental health?

  • How is my focus and concentration?
  • What seems to make my focus worse?
  • Is there anything that seems to make my focus better or improve?
  • How am I feeling emotionally?

  • How do I talk to myself?
  • What have I done recently to improve my mood?
  • What are my favorite hobbies?
