Review the year

I am focusing on reviewing my year.  One person reviewed their year by spiritual events in their lives.  There are hundreds of list of top songs, top movies, top shows, name it and someone has listed something that can be listed....what if I evaluated things that can't be put in a list and quantified? 
How is my integrity doing? 
Am I forgiving myself? 
Am I more accepting of myself and others? 
Do I choose Christ when I make my choices? 
Am I more loving? 
Do I listen better? 
How is my compassion doing?
None of these can be quantified.  But I believe these are the things that are essential in becoming the person I believe God thinks I am capable of being.  My vision is so finite.  I can count how many times I went to work.  I am aware of how often I go to work late.  I can tell you how much weight I lost and how much crept right back on to my hips.  God doesn't look on the outward parts. 
How is my emotional heart doing? 
Am I letting go of long term grudges? 
Am I addressing or avoiding my fears? 
Do I hold life in reverence? 
Do I lift those that have their hands hang down? 

Matthew 25:31-40
 31 ¶When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory:
 32 And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats:
 33 And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left.
 34 Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:
 35 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in:
 36 Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me.
 37 Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink?
 38 When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee?
 39 Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee?
 40 And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.

Hebrew 12:12-13
 12 Wherefore lift up the hands which hang down, and the feeble knees;
 13 And make straight paths for your feet, lest that which is lame be turned out of the way; but let it rather be healed.
