Look Back and Rejoice {Day 7 to a Renewed You} - It's that time to look back on the past year and count your blessings. What good happened that you can rejoice in?

Today’s assignment is to write down all the great things that happened in 2014.

We talked at dinner last night about some of the highlights of the year. Many of the kids’ responses included outings and adventures. My highlight was this day, though our trip to Europe also ranks very high on the list.

Sure, there are lots of things that we wish we could undo. It’s a mother’s nature to wish she could unmake that mistake. However, I’ve found that looking for the good typically spurs us on to more good in the future. So, let’s look back.

What happened this past year that makes you happy?

Some simple ways to remember what happened this year:

  • Flip through scrapbooks or scroll through your photo stream.
  • Browse your calendar.
  • Read through your journal. Don’t be embarrassed! View it as growth
  • Create a Memory Page for 2014
  • Grab this printable to help you record your accomplishments and blessings of the year.

  1. 2014 was epic for me in that I finally took a leap of faith and started blogging. I also wrote an e-book and I’ve almost completed a full-length book on marriage that I hope to publish this year.

    I love your attitude of not focusing on the things that we regret about the past year, but looking forward to the new one. I wrote the same thing in my new year post.

    Blessings to you and yours in 2015!

Thanks so much for participating in this conversation about "a mom's life."

This is a place where moms can be themselves. Remember that each mother's path looks a little different. Please keep your comments respectful and kind. Reasonable minds will disagree in a nice way.

So let's talk about it, using "our big girl words."
