December 2018 is finally here. Among other things, this means 2019 is just around the corner. As a matter of fact, in exactly twenty eight days from today, the year 2018 will end and we will bring in the New Year in style.
What do you think of when you reflect on the year 2018? What successes or failures have you experienced during the year? How have they prepared you to take giant steps in the year ahead?
The word December is taken from the latin word “decem”, which means tenth. This is because December was the 10th month in the Roman calendar which began in the month of March.
Regardless of what calendar one uses, the last month of the year is a time for reflection. It is also a time for planning for the New Year ahead.
Living Life Forward
Søren Kierkegaard, the notable Philosopher and Poet is credited with this quote:
“Life can only be understood backwards; but it must be lived forwards.”
Our quote today explains that we must take time periodically to reflect on the life we live. As they say, the unexamined life is not worth living. This is because without the taking time to review our life choices and steps we take, there is no way to learn from mistakes we make or take advantage of our successful moves.
While it is prudent to examine one’s life, we must also take the time to plan for the future. This is what it means to live forward; gather wisdom from the past and plan for the future.
We encourage every one of our readers to take time this month to review the year 2018. Count your blessings, reflect on the many steps you’ve taken this year and what things you could have done better. This is recommended for both your career and personal life.
