Year in Review Printable – Updated for 2021!

Grab this year in review printable to take a look at the ups and downs from this past year. 2021 was a big year of change for so many people – was it a big year of changes for you?

Whether or not you had a year of change, it’s still important for growth to look back and reflect on all that you have accomplished, learned, experienced, lost, etc.

Reflecting on the past year is one of my favorite things to do in December. I think it’s important to think about all of the wonderful moments from the year and to also think about what could have been better.

By reflecting on your year, you can make a plan for the future. Starting a new year is the perfect time to set new goals for yourself. Completing this year-end reflection page will help you do just that.

2021 Year in Review Printable

The 2021 year in review printable is pretty self-explanatory. But here is how I use each heading. I prefer not to share my own year in review because it is a personal page for me and I am always very honest with myself when I complete it.

  • favorite moments – I write down my favorite events/activities/days from the year
  • bumps in the road – I write down the moments that were difficult or sad
  • made it happen – I write down any major goals I accomplished
  • lessons learned – I write down things that I learned
  • places visited – I write down places I visited (it doesn’t have to be a vacation. It can just be things like friend’s houses or going to Target a lot).
  • how can I make 2022 better? – I write down one summary sentence on something I’d like to do to make next year even better.
  • favorites – I write down my favorites from the year. This is like a currently page only it covers the entire year.

After 2020, I created a second version which I included again this year. In place of places visited, I have put home projects. So if you were more of a homebody this year or you are an avid DIY’er, select the second option.
