For most of my life, I didn't readily reflect on the past year and set intentions for the coming year. When I was in my teens and early twenties, I lacked self-improvement tools and avoided reflecting on decisions and events that I now consider reckless or questionable. A lack of self-esteem meant I felt little control over my life, and I doubted my ability to change that. Revisiting the past twelve months without clear hope of making changes wasn't an attractive option. As I have aged, my perspective has changed.
