Bask in the Glory
Enjoy what you accomplished throughout your year. It’s okay to have hiccups and parts you may not want to remember. But enjoy your highs of the year and pat yourself on the back for pushing through those hard times. Life is not always how we expect it to be, but if you learn how to jump through hoops and overcome barriers, you will grow as an individual.
Skim Through Memories on Social Media
Every year, people write articles of certain things that happened throughout the year. For example: funniest cat moments of 2015 or best moments in 2015. Reading these articles helps us enjoy what happened throughout the year and also lets you learn a few things if you missed it on the news.
After you review the year, prepare yourself for what is to come next. A new chapter in everyone’s life means moving on from the past. We see students graduating college, employees starting at their new jobs or students prepping for new classes. Getting ahead of the game will greatly benefit you in the end. Learn from your mistakes in 2015 and make 2016 an amazing year.
