As the year draws to a close, we often reflect on it, sometimes positively and sometimes negatively. We can be hard on ourselves about what we achieved and what we didn’t.

But I bet you, if you take a closer look, you’ll be surprised just how much you did achieve, what challenges you were able to overcome and how much you’ve grown.

And you might have to be gentle on yourself and have a more compassionate approach to see these things. But they’ll be there, and this, is a more productive and positive use of reflection.
