Life,

To Do Before The Year Ends

21:50 Sauniya 165 Comments

This year has gone by pretty fast for me. It didn't happen quite the way I expected but it was  relatively good overall. There are only 20 days left to the year. That might not sound like a lot but it is still plenty of time to finish the year right.
Here are a few things you should do before the year is over:

• Get a check up
If you haven't already this year, set an appointment with your doctor to get a health check up to make sure everything is good. It's very important to stay on top of you health.

 Re-organize around
You don't want to carry any mess around you into the new year. Tidy up, get your room a make over. A fresh environment always helps to get yourself in a fresh spirit.

 Give back
 At the end of the year, there are always a lot of clothing items and other goods accumulated you no longer use and could donate to someone in need. Giving back is a great way to show our gratitude. You can also help by doing some volunteering work.

 Treat yourself
Take some time to enjoy just You. Go on a weekend trip to a part of town you haven't visited yet, treat yourself to a nice spa day, Enjoy a good movie, whatever makes you happy.

 Reflect on the year
Look back and appreciate all the moments of joy, your accomplishments, every lessons you learned, everything you could have improved, even the moments of pain. Taking the time to evalute your year helps you plan the new one better.

 Set goals for the upcoming year
What do you want most out of 2017. Whether it's personal growth, career progress, travels, fun.. Start setting your goals now and think of the different ways you could make them happen.

 Celebrate
Regardless of whether this was a good year or not for you. Get together with family and friends and celebrate. Which ever way you want to do it, reminiscing over a nice dinner, telling funny stories, out partying.. just have Fun.

  4. Eeeep. The year is almost over indeed. And it's been something I've stressed over but you've made some valid points. Most importantly there's still time for good things to happen.

  7. Girl, this year has gone so fast for me too and it wasn't what I had in mind. I also need to do some of the things on your list like setting goals for 2017, reflecting on 2016 so that I can avoid the mistakes I made this year and volunteer work because it is the best form of giving back.

  8. I think the first point you highlighted is for me... I have never been to the doctor for years, That i will thank God who has made it possible.

    But then, Even though I feel I am very OK, it could still be a lot of good going there to check myself up..

    Nice tips girl.

  9. These are wonderful goals for the end of the year. As much as it is important to have a good start of the new year, it is also important to end one on the same (or better) terms, I believe :) xx Maja

  28. Dear Sauniya,
    I totally agree with all of the to-do things on your list!
    Me too I want to start the new year without any mess around and I want to feel good in my apartment and in my soul. Therefore I always clean up my mind and my home before New Year's Eve.
    For me 2016 was one of the best years when I look back. I don't know if 2017 can be as good, maybe it will be also good, but in an other way.
    2014 and 2015 were very hard years for me and my husband. At this time I couldn't imagine that life would ever get better for me. And then from one day to the other one everything changed abrupt, it was like a miracle! It showed me once again that we should never ever loose our hope.
    I wish you a wonderful holiday season my lovely friend :-*
    Have a wonderful time with your family!

    1. Dear Jasmin. Thank you so much for sharing. Yes, we should never lose hope. I think what doesn't break you only makes you stronger and even though they were hard times you have definitely come out stronger from them. I so glad things are better and I hope they continue to be.
      I hope you and your family have a wonderful holiday season too my friend. :)
