Annual Reflections

Reflection is one of the proven ways to get you moving on. Confuscius is renowned to have argued " by three methods we may learn wisdom: First, by reflection, which is noblest; Second, by imitation, which is easiest; and third by experience, which is the bitterest.

As the year gives it final salutation and a new one awaits to manifest. We look at every moment gone by. Yes this is the time to take out that diary and realise what went down well and went off the mark. This is the time to visualise one's life – like a reality show. In which you are the major contestant.

You acted your part in January. Had resolutions made and high hopes. By February you had not realised many of those resolutions, but were searching for solutions. You matched through March. Probably lost a friend, a job or got new one's. By April you were warming up for yet another holiday. A child was born or one was still born. Yet you walked on to May, saying " if i may – i might". This got you to June where you realised the year was getting midway before your agenda was all met. So you got a loan to accomplish or prayed for a pay raise. Suddenly it was July, August, September and the master plan you had in January was still in progress or regress.

October beckoned to you and you followed through never losing hope and by November you were thankful to still be alive because so many had been claimed by accidents and incidents. Even Bin Ladden and Gadaffi were no more.

Now its December, take a hold of that diary and discover what it was like again. The pains and gains. The dares and cares. No doubt you have strove through approximately 365 days and Confuscious's words will stand out to be probably true.
