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.

In purposeful action there is fulfillment and when there is fulfillment - there is joy. That's exactly why, at 27 years old, I decided to quit my job in NYC and pursue my dreams - whatever they may be.
