Happy old year: a positive review of the year

Happy old year: take positives from the past and gain a favorable perspective on the old year.


As we stand on the threshold of a new year, it is only natural that we look back on the past twelve months. We often focus on what went wrong or what could have been better. However, there is great strength and healing in looking at the past year from a positive perspective. This approach is not just about being optimistic; it is a conscious decision to increase our well-being and promote a positive outlook on life.

The power of positive reflection

Every experience, whether joyful or challenging, has two sides. By choosing to focus on the positive aspects, we train our minds to recognize the good sides even in situations that initially appear negative. This positive reflection is not about ignoring the difficulties we have faced, but about acknowledging them and finding the hidden treasures of wisdom within them.

Finding the good in the not so good

It’s easy to appreciate the good times, but the real challenge lies in recognizing the value of the less pleasant experiences. Every event, no matter how negative it may seem, brings with it some form of positive effect. This can be personal growth, liberation from something negative in our lives or the acquisition of new knowledge. For example, a difficult situation at work may have improved your problem-solving skills, or a personal setback may have made you more resilient and empathetic.

The art of letting go

Imagine you are sorting through photos from a vacation. You keep the photos that bring you joy and throw away those that serve no purpose. It is similar when we sift through the memories of the past year: it is important to let go of negative feelings and memories. Holding on to them only hinders our progress and our well-being. Make a conscious decision to remember the lessons learned, but let go of the bitterness or sadness that might be associated with those lessons.

Develop a positive narrative

The way we describe our past influences our future. By painting an overall positive picture of the past year, we are creating the conditions for a hopeful and optimistic start to the coming year. It is not about inventing a false story, but rather about emphasizing the strengths gained, the challenges overcome and the joy experienced.

The importance of your own work

This process of positive reflection requires effort. It is not a question of glossing over the past, but of taking a serious look at it. Take some time to reflect on the past year. Write down the most important events, your reactions to them and the positive results or lessons you have learned from them. This exercise is not just a journey into the past, but an active engagement in shaping your mindset and attitude for the future.


When we say goodbye to the old year, we should do so with gratitude and a sense of fulfillment. Every year is a mosaic of experiences, and it is up to us to focus on the lively, positive parts. In this way, we not only enrich our present, but also pave the way for a future full of optimism and resilience. A happy old year – may it be the foundation on which we can build an even happier new year.
