quote about self reflection



With Christmas around the corner and the New Year on the horizon, the whole "New Year, New Me" chatter has started buzzing..... But let's face it, many of those plans will fizzle out soon after the New Year kicks in (Kidder, 1995)

Why though?

In my head, it's because we start in the wrong place because Genuine and lasting change begins from within, with a healthy dose of self-reflection (Smith, 2002)

i have no ide what im doing

When we organize our thoughts, it helps us see who we are and understand how we work. This clarity gives us the power to make meaningful changes, laying the groundwork for personal growth and positive transformations.

Studies even throw in some numbers to back it up, suggesting that dedicating just 15 minutes to reflecting on our day can make us 23% better at things and 43% happier (Grant, Franklin & Langford, 2002)

So in the spirit of the approaching new year, here are 67 questions to ask yourself.... Grab a pen, find a cosy corner, and see if you surprise yourself with the answers.

               Why Listen To Me?
(The short answer is I don't know)

You know, if you had asked me a decade ago where life was taking me, I wouldn't have had a clue. Back then, I was right in the middle of a rough patch—a mental health breakdown that seemed to be wrecking every part of my life.

But hey, fast forward to now, as I'm edging into my early forties, things have done a complete 180. What used to be a mess of struggles has turned into a journey of finding peace, purpose, and meaning in my mental health recovery.

These days, you'll find me in Manchester, living and working, using the chaos of my past to help others untangle their minds. If that sounds like something you're into, well, maybe this blog could be just what you're looking for. Come along as I share stories, insights, and lessons learned on the rollercoaster ride from rock bottom to resilience.

Be the first to know!
