End of Year Review

As I write this post there are just a few days left of 2018, what a year it has been!

This year I gave up my full time corporate job and took a leap into small business ownership. I also went back to my roots of veterinary nursing part time, remembering what I loved about the job, namely: enjoying being part of a fabulous practice team, caring for animals and educating the pet owning public.

At the end of each year I love to look back and reflect on the good and the bad. This helps me to look forward at what I want to achieve in the coming 12 months.

I will walk you through my review process but have also created a worksheet which you can download visiting our webshop. Then simply print off and fill in to help you create your own End of Year Review!

To create these pages I have used the kit outlined in this blog post along with my New Year Goals Stencil

My reflection process starts by creating a timeline of the most memorable events of the year.

In order to avoid missing anything I flick through my journals for the year… a great chance to look back at all the lovely (and not so lovely) spreads I have created.

Once I have created the timeline I then review the successes and challenges of the year.

Looking at these challenges I then think about my “traffic light review”

Stop: What do I want to stop doing next year?

Start: What do I want to start doing next year?

Continue: What have I done this year that I want to continue forward into 2019?

After this I then thought about what is the “one big thing” I want to make happen in 2019.

Around the spread I have added some reflections and memories from the year.

I’m really happy with how this spread turned out.

I look forward to another year of journaling fun!

Happy journaling.



I live in Essex in the UK with my gaggle of furry friends including Daisy the dog. I have had lifetime passion/obsession for beautiful stationery and to do lists which has lead me to the wonderful world of Bullet journals. When I first starting bullet journaling it struck me the lack of UK based resources for journal accessories which lead me to create my own. I know have my very own webshop selling my hand made journal stencils and ship all over the world and am just as enthusiastic as I ever was about stationery and organisation!!
