Reverb/Resound11: Reflecting Rocks.

[This post is the first weekly summary of RESOUND 2011 – click here if you have no idea what I'm talking about]

So far, I've reflected on 2011 in eleven different ways. It's been quite a rewarding experience to sit down every day and think about the year that is about to end and peek into the new one. It's nice to structure my past and my future like that – it's very new to me, but it's calming and motivating. Here are my first eleven prompts that I've answered:

  1. Where and how did 2011 begin?
  2. What is one word to describe 2011? Explain why you’re choosing that word. Now, imagine it’s one year from today, what would you like the word to be that captures 2012 for you?
  3. What would you do differently?
  4. What are you most grateful for this year?
  5. What did you struggle with?
  6. What did you learn in 2011?
  7. Pick one moment during which you felt most alive this year? Describe it in vivid detail.
  8. What or whom did you let go of this year? Why?
  9. Where have you been this year?
  10. What new skill have you mastered, what new knowledge gained?
  11. What is the best thing you learned about yourself this year? How are you going to apply this lesson going forward?

It's not too late to jump in, I can highly recommend it! You don't have to have a blog, just pull out your journal or open a Word document and start! 

It will…

  1. let you make sense of the past year.
  2. organise your feelings and thoughts.
  3. let you see what's important to you.
  4. make you proud of what you've accomplished.
  5. make you feel good about the next year.
  6. let you come closer to yourself.

It's a great exercise, one you shouldn't miss.

Here is the list of other Resound11 participants – make sure you check them out!

Next Monday I'll be posting my next weekly Reverb summary – so stay tuned!

  1. This is a great idea – I could do with a bit of pause and reflection and a little less manically rushing around…

      It’s super fascinating actually to discover all these corners in your rational and emotional memory and make sense of it all. Great experience in every way..
