A time to review our lives

Reflecting on the year just passed and contemplation of the year ahead are an important part of Advent in the lead up to Christmas.


Taking this reflection time can be beneficial for us and our families. We can gain valuable insights, learn from our experiences, and make informed decisions for the future. We can assess our accomplishments, challenges, and areas for improvement. By understanding our strengths and weaknesses, we can set realistic goals and work towards personal growth.


It’s also important to learn from our mistakes. Assessing the past year can assist us to identify any missteps or failures. By acknowledging these setbacks, we can learn from them and make necessary changes to avoid repeating them. We can identify any unproductive habits, allowing us to improve our time management skills, leading to increased productivity in the future.


Advent is also a time to celebrate our achievements. Recognising our successes boosts our self-confidence and motivates us to continue striving for excellence and make us better people.


Setting goals is also important for our development: Contemplating the year ahead enables us to set clear goals and establish priorities. By identifying what we want to achieve, we can create a roadmap and allocate our time and resources accordingly.



By visualising our goals and aspirations, we can maintain a sense of purpose and drive throughout the coming year.


So, Advent is a time of quiet reflection: a review of the year that has passed and thinking about the year ahead. This will provide us with valuable insights, helps us learn from our experiences, and enables us to make informed decisions.


By taking the time to reflect, set goals, and plan for the future, we can enhance our personal growth and overall well-being and, more importantly, renew our relationship with God.
