goodbye 2018

In 2018, I gained: professional networks.

I lost: the sense of dread that followed me for the past year.

I stopped: fretting.

I started: meditating every night. I notice a dramatic improvement in sleep.

I was hugely satisfied by: decluttering!

And frustrated by: my inability to keep it up--the box situation was getting bad again.

I am so embarrassed that I: am in an officer position and have absolutely no idea what I'm doing. I don't even know where to ask for advice or information.

Once again, I: set goals and met them! Reading, knitting, financial, travel...

Once again, I did not: redecorate my classroom. I have put in more personal touches, though.

The biggest physical difference between me last December and this December is: my hair is stronger than ever thanks to products my Pennsylvania sister introduced me to.

The biggest psychological difference between me last December and this December is: I'm processing things better.

I loved spending time: with my parents, sisters, and nieces and nephews.

Why did I spend even two minutes: stressing about events before attending them?

I should have spent more time: standing up for myself when I needed to.

I regret buying: a bottle of perfume without trying it first--it's the same brand as my signature scent and I thought it would work with my chemistry but it doesn't.

I will never regret buying multiple colors of comfy shoes that fit even though with that money I could have bought just one pair and saved the rest.

I didn’t exercise enough.

The Attack of the Facebook Mansplaining Trolls drove me crazy.

The most relaxing place I went was when I was in Central Maine and treated myself to a pedicure and time at Barnes & Noble.

Why did I go to bed so late?

The best thing I did for someone else was to take my parents to a medical treatments in Portland--I know it relieved them of the burden of driving and it was meaningful for me to do this for them.

The best thing I did for myself took steps to fix my finances.

The best thing someone did for me my friend Louise took care of me while we were in New York--it was something simple and it meant a lot. It's hard for me to ask for help and she just took care of it/me.

The one thing I’d like to do again, but do it better, plan a trip!

Finances, decluttering, meditating ... you're my heroine, Kwiz!
