Granting ourselves the gift of reflection at the end of the year is a fun activity for New Year's Eve - sitting in silence, mulling over all the memories we've collected. It gives us a chance to slow down and savor all the different facets of life. For me, it provides a chance to reflect on my character and growth. How have I changed? Are my actions and goals aligned with the person that I want to continue to be? Only when we record and reflect will we see the nuances that teach us a little more about ourselves every day.
