Alert: A Collaboration for a Reflection

The lovely Jane Love made this lovely cover picture!

Finally we’ve come to the last month of the year, when Christmas music are playing everywhere, when all the trees are decorated with lights and when people are rushing into stores to buy gifts – December! 🎄🎄🎄

So in this month’s Collaboration with a Purpose, we collaborators are taking the opportunity to pause and reflect on the year 2017; how well it has gone for us, what lessons we have learned from it, anything we love, hate or feel ambivalent about in 2017. 😀

Why reflection? Just like how we look into the mirror to fix our hair, put on makeup or generally make ourselves look better, we can better ourselves by looking back at our life’s experiences and applying what worked and learning from what didn’t. We may learn more about ourselves that we didn’t before, and even generate more ideas for the future!

  1. It helps you learn from your mistakes. (…)
  2. It gives you great ideas. (…)
  3. It helps you help others. (…)
  4. It makes you happier. (…)
  5. It gives you perspective. (…)

And now, here’s the standard movie tag line for this month’s collaboration theme, though because I published this intro post later than usual, you’ll find the “soon” is extra soon this time. 😛


The Collaborators!

Here’s the list of bloggers taking part, in alphabetical order! I added little excerpts from their blogs that really caught my eye and will hopefully whet your interest enough to visit their blogs too. 😀

  • Barb Caffrey @ Barb Caffrey’s Blog (“So, if you believe in any sort of Higher Power, one of the things you need to remember is to forgive yourself once in a while.”)
  • Divyang Shah @ i think my way (“If someone don’t speak much, don’t interpret as a dumb, their mind must be working on something very big or may be he is a writer and observing surrounding on which he would come with some deep write-ups.”)
  • Ipuna Black (“None of us are perfect or come from perfect backgrounds, but this doesn’t mean we can’t aim for a positive and fulfilling life. The life we all deserve.”)
  • Jane Love @ Harmonious Joy (“People who have a genuine say and a true voice of their own… not just an echo of some celebrity they think they love.”)
  • Jothish Joseph @ TheJothishJosephBlog (“Anybody can write “Extra” before “ordinary” but only people of courage dare to earn it…”)
  • Mylene C. Orillo (“Where I’m at right now is a testament that ‘Dreams really do come true.'”)
  • Sadaf Siddiqi (“The best thing about memories, is one doesn’t realise they are making memories but once recorded, it just rewinds and takes one back to the beautiful series of life.”)
  • Sonyo Estavillo @ ‘Lil Pick Me Up (“I am here to champion anyone from the successful and confident folks, to those that are clinically depressed.”)
  • And of course myself, Nicolle K @ Stories of a Highly Sensitive Introvert! (“Success, for me, is when I spend my days feeling happy, peaceful, fulfilled and without fear of lack.”)

While waiting for the latest instalment, do head over to my Collaboration with a Purpose Index to see the other themes we’ve completed so far!
