50 questions to take stock of the past year and prepare for the one to come.

The last half of December is such a special and festive time. It’s also an ideal time to take stock of the year that has just passed. A perfect moment to take the time to look back on what you have experienced, discovered and achieved over the last 12 months.

An annual review is also a very good exercise to practice in full awareness. It's a way to slow down a little, to remember your favorite moments, to take the time to appreciate all the big and small things that have been part of your life over the year. It's a time you can give yourself to draw conclusions about the things that make you happy and the things that don't give you enough satisfaction.

If you want to set goals and already have ideas for resolutions for the new year, if you have goals you want to achieve in 2019, taking stock of the past year will also help you make sure those goals are in line with your priorities, your abilities and your values.

If possible, try to do this annual review at least a few days before you sit down to think about the new resolutions you want to make for the coming year. Sit back, relax and take all the time you need to think about it. To help you, in this article you will find a list of 50 questions that you can use to reflect on different aspects of your past year .

Write down your answers or just think about them in your head. You can also talk about it with a friend or someone close to you. The last 10 questions on this list will get you thinking about the year ahead too, but you shouldn't feel obligated to plan your goals and resolutions right now. These last 10 questions are simply there to accompany you and help you prepare for the start of the year with enthusiasm.

Instead, Miss Grenade recommends that you take the time to answer these questions before Christmas Day and set new goals for yourself once December 31st passes.

To conclude, the entire Mademoiselle Grenade team wishes you a very happy holiday season. We wish you abundance, happiness and peace in this hope-filled new year. Of course, we also wish you a year full of style and would like to assure you that we will do everything we can to support you towards this goal. We appreciate the trust you have placed in us, for over 8 years now, and are so happy to offer you our services and expertise. Happy Holidays to everyone!
