Floral Themed Vintage Style Reflections Journal Printables
When a fresh year starts, I tend to get into a self-reflection stage. I think about things I should have done better and things I should have done, and the list goes on.
Self-reflection seems to be a dying art. People either feel they don’t have the time or that it’s a waste of time. Others are afraid to take a good, long, hard look at themselves. This is a mistake because there is so much to be gained by examining yourself and your past.
Self-reflection provides many advantages that can make life easier, which is why I have prepared a set of Floral Themed Vintage Style Reflections Journal Printables for you.

Before you start your self-reflection sessions, please let me share with you how self-reflection can make you happier and more successful.
How Self-Reflection Can Make You Happier and More Successful
1. You learn about yourself. Most people are shockingly low in self-awareness. Some people are too busy, or at least they think they are. Others would prefer to distract themselves rather than spend one second in self-reflection.
- However, there’s much to be learned by taking a few minutes each day and reviewing your day, the choices you made, the positives, and the negatives.
- When you know yourself, you can make better plans that utilize your strengths and avoid your weaknesses.
- Recognizing your weaknesses and dealing with them is powerful. You can stop shooting yourself in the foot over and over.
2. You learn from your past. If you look at the biggest mistakes you’ve made over your life, you’ll find they’re surprisingly similar. You may have either spent money you couldn’t afford, got involved with someone you shouldn’t, or made poor decisions to get away from stressful situations.
- If you’ve never taken the time to review these mistakes, you’ve repeated them.
- Reviewing the past can also help you to identify what works, and then you can advantageously repeat those actions.
3. Take intelligent, thoughtful action. Many people are very action-oriented and avoid “wasting” time on overthinking. Rather than just jumping in with both feet, it can be beneficial to spend some time thinking and strategizing.
Reflect on what you want to accomplish for yourself. Ask yourself a few questions and use the answers wisely.
Graham Gibbs is an academic that studies self-reflection. He developed a six-step process to aid in self-reflection. This process can be used as a guide to help you get into the swing of things.
Use Mr. Gibbs’ process to examine your past and present:
1. What happened? This is simple enough. Describe the event to yourself. “I dropped out of college.”
2. What was I thinking and feeling? What were you thinking at the time? What did you think afterward? “I was stressed and failing. I felt a sense of relief when I first dropped out, but then I felt a sense of dread and felt lost.”
3. What was good or bad about the experience? “I gained free time, and my stress was relieved. But, now I don’t have a plan for my future, and my job prospects are much more limited.”
4. How does this affect the various parts of my life? What does it say about me? “My personal and career development is stifled. My significant other is upset with me and threatening to leave. My parents kicked me out of the house and told me to find a job. This suggests that I am impulsive and handle stress poorly.”
5. What else could I have done? “Talked to a friend. Spoken to my professors. Sought professional help. Learned meditation or yoga. Lightened my course load.”
6. If this happened again, how would I handle it? “I would consider long-term implications instead of just short. I would get the help I need. I wouldn’t consider quitting to be a viable option.”
Self-reflection is a useful tool that’s free to learn and apply. Imagine being able to leverage your strengths, minimize your weaknesses, and avoid repeating your mistakes.
You can make good use of those painful events from your past. Spend a few minutes each day and apply a little self-reflection. You’ll be happy with the results.
Face yourself with great courage and be willing to learn and change for the better. Till next time, I wish you a Happy New Year and all the best in your pursuit of positivity in the new year.

About Me and Let's Connect!
My name is I-Ping Yeo but I write in my alter ego Ashley Yeo cos when I first started online, I was too shy to be me. Silly! Now that my whole website and brand is built on Ashley Yeo, I am gonna stick with it (cos I am too lazy to change it and too much money has been spent on Ashley Yeo) and spread some sweet cheer!
I am a previously jaded ex-lawyer and now positively charged mompreneur who founded AshleyYeo.com. Ashley Yeo is a “fictional” character who is very different from me in personality. I am formal and boring while Ashley Yeo attempts to live a bit more dangerously but within acceptable boundaries.
I produce and publish content under my brand Ashley Yeo. I produce content mainly about homeschooling, education, digital and online learning, self-care, gratitude, ikigai (Japanese term for “reason to be”), infectious happiness strategies, passion, positivity, planning, and productivity for moms. And I also share boss girl e-commerce strategies I am testing, and resources I am using, on my own small boss girl indie business.
I conjure seriously juicy journals, notebooks, planners, coloring stuff, printables, and pretty kawaii products out of love, peaches, and cream.
I am the author and publisher of the "Big Grateful Heart: 52 Week Gratitude Journal". This is one of my best-selling gratitude journals, and it was a number 1 new release on Amazon as well as on several of Amazon's Top 100 bestseller lists.
I especially love to produce premium printables complementary to your homeschool curriculum, and for your family's positivity and self-care.
