One of my pinterest pins had the following self-reflection set of questions that I though was very interesting. So I sat down and began to answer the questions that were being asked and I thought that my answers and the website were worthy of sharing.
The website offers up 100 questions that are titled “100 Personal End of Year Reflection & Review Questions” divided into 10 separate sections of 10 questions in each section.
The website & its questions can be seen here at It’s All You Boo – By Author
I personally have sat down to undertake the challenge of answering Nadalie’s reflective questions as I feel that they will help to settle me in the year of 2019 after helping me to reflect on 2018.
In today’s daily blog post I will be looking at the 8th set of 10 questions of Nadalie Bardo’s “100 Personal End of Year Reflection & Review Questions” – a set of questions that your finances for the year that has just passed.
91. Where do you want to be one year from now? Describe it.
One year from now will find me in the middle of January 2020… I have many hopes for my next year and some of them are in the areas of personal growth… my number one want for my personal growth is to have me take a very good look at myself and see who it is that I am and ask myself “is this the me that I want to be & is this the me that I was meant to be..? I want me and own self’s self to take the year to be the giver that I am, to love those that I love with out question and without judgement but whilst doing so not have my ass being used as a welcome mat or a stepping stone for others. I know this much for sure “I don’t want my ass to be the welcome mat for other people drama filled questions that when not given the right answer or the answer that they require to get up and leave… I can say with an open heart that my door is open until you yourself choose to close it with your ignorance’s.”
92. What’s the number goal you want to achieve in 2019?
How many number 1 goals can there be….?
I just want to be the person that I am … unapologetically me in my rawness… I have always wanted to stop allowing the thoughts and feelings of others to stop engulfing and dictating my every thought, feeling and way of doing things… I want my word and my self’s priorities to be enough for those around me… I want to finally stand up and say NO! and mean what I say… (mean what I say without feeling guilt or pressure into changing how and why I do things).
There are many people out there who feel that my above 2019 goals are already made of who it is that I am now… well maybe on the surface this is true… but who I am inside is less dominant and she is very much introverted complexity who chooses quiet over outspoken… “I want to see my 2019 come and go as the inner person that I am, taking less of the drams and discomforts of others onto myself & I want my own self worth to be the two way street that will either lead people closer to my inner circle or that it will lead them to a road that is of their own choosing.”
In a nutshell… if I am not enough as a person for those around me to want me to any different of a person than I am then I am here to say that “I will no longer be sorry that I wasn’t the person that you wanted me to be.”
93. Choose one word that sums up your main theme for next year.
Another 1 worded answer there are so many that I could use to describe and sum me up in my main theme of me… but if I have to choose 1 “encompassment” would be it…
Encompassment –to form a circle about; encircle; surround: He built a moat to encompass the castle. to enclose; envelop: The folds of a great cloak encompassed her person.
94. What’s your New Year’s Resolution or goal?
I don’t really like forming new years resolutions… I put enough pressure on myself without adding additional goals or thoughts of new years resolutions. I like to be the person that live without expectations on how my life will pan out in and throughout the journey of the new year… but I have given myself a journey that will lead me back to myself and my love of writing – a journey that started back at the end of 2017.. but one that I am still loving and finding much passion in at this very moment of 2019.
95. What are your top 3 priorities for the new year?
My top 3 priorities for walking into 2019 are as follows:-
– continue with my writing on a daily bases… dedicating at least 2 hours daily in my exploration of my writing & decide on whether I will take on the journey of writing a book (this is a pipe dream as I have un-thought-out ideas but no definitive decisions or pathways tho this thought).
– finally make a decision of whether we will make life altering decisions to up root ourselves and or our family to make the changes to our lives that we have for the longest time been talking about… do we sell and do we go .. do we make our footprint known in the geographic landscape of another place that is in our hearts but one we are not sure that we want to roam.
– decide if I will go back to my dreams of becoming a full time student in the field of counselling… will I take back up my Bachelors Of Counselling, or will I go and undertake a few short dated courses that will serve me in reserving my internal energy and my footprint that overwhelms my study hours.
96. Write a personal mantra or affirmation for next year.
Firstly a fav of mine but one that I am not to good in living up to… “No one else is willing to do that, so that’s what I will do.”
Secondly… “I will recognize a person who doesn’t get enough recognition.” and that person will be unapologetically and unselfishly me.
97. What does your perfect day or week look like?
I have spent many years looking into the why’s and the how’s to the behaviours of other people…. I have always given a shit and have always tried hard to either be the glue in broken down relationships or I have tried to be the person who work hard to unburden others and their grievances with others… & to be honest all my holding onto others has tuckered me… “I know that it is time for me to take the road less travelled and find my supports in my own strengths… its time for my life to be own action plan… 3019 for me brings a need for others to find their own feet – for me to be who I am for others to be that for myself.”
98. What beneficial daily habits can you start in 2019?
I have given myself the gift of returning to my written words.. this is where I find myself and my inner calmness, so writing every day (with hope in all of my chosen writing adventures) is my daily habit for 2019.
The other daily habit that I would like to pickup is a half hour reading block or a guaranteed chapter a day reading block.. a moment where I can find a quiet place and unplug from my airport baggage claim mind.
99. How will you take action towards your goal?
There will be no easy pathways to reaching my goals and my inner mantras… but my first port of call would be to learn that it is ok to say no! – to find no guilt in saying no! give myself permission to step off the pathway f always being the helper to others… & stand in my own life’s path to help me and my self made family to reach the centre of our own lives.
100. Who do you hope to become in 2019?
I have hopes in becoming the quieter person that exists deep down within myself… whilst the out spoken person that has given me courage and strength has served me well over the years… I feel that I do not allow the truer side of me to come out all that often.
I want to be less open in the sense of always having an opinion or an answer to life’s woe’s but remain self assured and staunched in my morals and beliefs, I don’t want to change who it is that I am or how it is that want to be treated as by others… but I just want to be the calmer person that I know is hidden deep within my own self’s being.
I want to become the person who credits myself with self worth and self value… allowing no-one to take the stride out of my own walking path.
So there it is questions 91 to 100 of Nadalie Bardo’s “100 Personal End of Year Reflection & Review Questions – Part 10 – “Personal Reflection – Questions For Next Year.” this ends the 10 parts of Nadalie Bardo’s -100 Personal End of Year Reflection & Review Questions.
I have enjoyed my last 10 days in review of myself and in answering Nadalie Bardo’s “100 Personal End of Year Reflection & Review Questions, the end results have indeed opened my eyes to what my journey through 2018 held in its hands for me… the personal journey of my 2018 is now etched in my honest thoughts and words… I wasn’t at all surprised with what came out, and to be honest I didn’t struggle to answer any of the questions being asked… the questions for me were surprisingly in how much I wrote and not in the content of my answers. My honest reflections of me and my year of 2018 was certainly an interesting 1 that was full of self growth and also a full year of gravitation to me finding me again through my written words.
In my earlier writes of Nadalie’s 100 questions I wrote the following – “I look forward to finishing up Nadalie’s 100 Personal End of Year Reflection & Review Questions…. having looked at my 2018 through different questions … offering up responses that I truly had no idea that they existed until I wrote them. But answers that not only reflected but also summed up 2018 and how I myself grew as a person… In conclusion I spent 2018 finding my way in & through the existence of my world & through this journey of journey of finding me; I of course found myself and my voice in writing adventures.” I have enjoyed this journey into looking at my year in review… and have just had the thought that I may relook at these questions at the beginning of 2019 as a comparison of my year and adventures of 2019.
