Reflecting on the Previous Year

Birthdays mark the transition from one trip around the sun to the next. Before moving forward, I always like to pause and reflect on the previous year. Taking stock empowers me to extract lessons, uncover patterns, cement new aspects of my identity, and acknowledge my growth.

Here are some prompts I ask myself:

  • What were my biggest accomplishments and achievements this past year?
  • How did I overcome difficult situations or adapt to unexpected circumstances?
  • In what ways have I grown emotionally and spiritually?
  • What new passions or interests emerged?
  • What relationships or connections nurtured me?
  • What places did I visit or experience for the first time?
  • What made me laugh, smile, or feel profoundly grateful?
  • What did I learn about myself this year?
  • What do I feel most proud of from the year?

I capture memories and moments related to each reflection. Revisiting the year’s highlights infuses me with a sense of contentment and abundance. I carry these memories with me as sources of strength for times ahead.

Setting Intentions and Goals for the Upcoming Year

My birthday season transitions me from reflecting to visioning. With gratitude for the previous year established, I shift to setting intentions and goals for the upcoming year. This orients me toward the future and plants seeds for how I wish the next year to unfold.

When setting birthday intentions, I focus on:

  • Growth areas
  • Skills to strengthen
  • Things that spark joy
  • Places I’d like to see
  • New challenges or experiences
  • Ways to nourish my mind, body and spirit
  • Personal qualities to cultivate
  • Knowledge I aim to gain
  • Contributions to make

Rather than concrete milestones, I set heart-centered intentions – the kind of person I aspire to become, the vibrant life I intend to lead.

Goals accompany my intentions with specific measurable steps for achievement. Milestones motivate me to actualize my yearlong intentions.

Here are some intention and goal examples:

Intention Deepen my meditation practice
Goals – Practice meditation 5 times per week
– Take a meditation retreat
– Complete a 30 day meditation challenge

Setting thoughtful intentions and goals allows me to approach the year systematically targeting areas of growth and sources of fulfillment. They drive me forward with purpose. Revisiting them throughout the coming year keeps me on track.

Thanking Those Who Have Supported Me

No one accomplishes anything alone. Part of celebrating my birthday includes recognizing all of the people who have graced, shaped, and enhanced my life – friends, family, teachers, mentors, colleagues, neighbors, healthcare workers, public servants, volunteers, strangers who were unexpectedly kind.

My birthday wish list thanks the following people for contributing to my life:

  • Mom – for nurturing me every step of the way
  • Dad – for challenging me and instilling perseverance
  • Sue (sister) – for paving the way as a thoughtful role model
  • Matt (friend) – for consistently seeing the best in me
  • Amy (colleague) – for encouraging me daily
  • Eric (neighbor) – for selflessly shoveling all of our sidewalks
  • Dr. Rowe – for caring patience and medical wisdom

The more specific the expression of thanks, the more meaningful it becomes. Articulating my gratitude, even through a list, boosts my mood, fosters community and strengthens relationships – the secret sauce for a thriving life.

Offering Myself Birthday Blessings

The final component of my annual birthday ritual involves offering myself birthday blessings – short affirmations infused with positivity, openly inviting abundance and prosperity. These mantras orient my psyche and energy field toward receiving good into my new year of life.

Below are some birthday blessings and well wishes I extend to myself:

May this upcoming year bring you joy, clarity, possibility and anticipation for each new day.

May friendships multiply and blossom, old and new, ripening your understanding of others and yourself.

May tranquility emerge from chaos, simplicity from clutter, ease from strain.

May your fears and doubts dissolve, giving way to movements guided by courage and stillness grounded in calm.

May creativity pour boundless inspiration upon your projects. May you view stresses as fuel for brilliant solutions.

May synergy multiply your work’s effects, compound interest amplify your savings, affluence allow ample sharing.

Writing heartfelt birthday blessings anchors me in gratitude while summoning further abundance. Rather than material wealth, I define prosperity through joy, harmony, self-actualization and purpose. These annual blessings help manifest such riches in my new year of life.

In Summation

My annual birthday ritual – reflecting, visioning, expressing thanks and offering blessings – provides me invaluable direction, motivation and energy for each new life chapter.

Taking time to write birthday wishes for myself is an act of self-love, a compass guiding another fruitful revolution around the sun. I highly recommend you carve out this intentional space as well.

May your birthday mark a fresh start and orient you toward flourishing.
