20 Questions to Reflect on Your Year

Use these 20 year-end reflection questions to review your year.



As we're in the process of closing out the books on 2019, I thought it would be a useful exercise to reflect on the past year. Considering 2019 is the end of a decade, I think it's even more so important to sit and review those highs, lows, and everything in between.


I've compiled a list of 20 questions to help you. You can answer them in your journal, discuss them with a friend, talk them over with your partner, or ask them to your kids.


  1. What were your favorite memories of the year?

  2. What went well?

  3. What didn't go so well?

  4. When did I feel most exhausted and drained during the year?

  5. When did I feel most in my element during the year?

  6. What is one thing I'm most proud of from the year?

  7. What moment/day would I want to live over again from the year?

  8. What did I say "yes" to that I wish I had said "no" to?

  9. What did I say "no" to that I wish I had said "yes" to?

  10. What scared me?

  11. What grew me?

  12. What was the bravest thing I did all year?

  13. What 3 words best describe the year?

  14. What was the nicest thing I did for someone this year?

  15. What was the nicest thing someone did for me this year?

  16. What is the best part of being the age that I am now?

  17. What is the funniest thing I saw/heard over the year?

  18. What criticism did I receive this year and what did I do about it?

  19. What is something that was hard for me at the start of the year but is easier now?

  20. What is the biggest lesson I learned from the year?


I hope these questions can help you spend some quality time with yourself to evaluate your year and how you can plan for the next 12-months.


I'd like to thank you for being here and wish you a happy, healthy, clutter-free year ahead!
