1. “To Go Back and Fetch It” 

2. The knowledge of the past must never be forgotten. 

The new year always spark up the future with vision boards, resolutions, new intentions, and planning the new you. But one simply cannot transform their future without looking at their past.

Reflecting on your past is just as important as planning your future. Reflection reminds you of your growth. It helps you acknowledge the blessing you had and the lessons you learned. It helps you navigate what worked, what didn’t so you can elevate to the next level.

I’m not the only one who thinks reflection is important this time of year. Francheska Medina (Hey Fran Hey), Alex Elle, and Liana Naima all want you to reflect before the year is up. I’ve gathered their end of year journal questions to motivate you to dig deep and truly evaluate your year.

Before you start writing, make the intention to answer authentically and without self-judgement. Honesty and being open to your true thoughts and emotions is the only way you can truly transform yourself. So go on, sit down, breathe, and dig deep.

After journaling, what are some things you learned about yourself?
