25 Questions to Ask Yourself Before the End of 2015

I started this exercise 2 years ago to reflect wholeheartedly on my growth over a 12 month period. It’s a great exercise to do quarterly even. I find myself slacking off on personal growth ambitions because falling into the comfort of old habits is just so effortless.

I usually give myself 2 weeks to do this task because it requires silence, repeated reading, thinking, brutal honesty and experiencing emotions I just want to bury. This is my exercise to honour my soul’s journey with each passing year. This is an exercise in self-discovery.

I hope that the questions spur in you, the will and excitement to delve deeper into your purpose and to revel in the joys and sorrows of the human experience.

It can be scary and intimidating at first because it really forces you to think about how you are treating yourself. Once it’s written on paper, reality hits. Either you run away from the truth or you make the commitment to improve with self-love.

Here we go!
