Last Year was a Year of…

Photograph by Shannon L. Buck copyright 2015.For me, last year was one of simplification. I simplified processes, winnowed out unnecessary belongings and steps, and tried to live more in the moment.

It was also a year of revelations and reevaluation, learning more about myself and what I want in my life. What is important, and what isn’t.

I made decisions to do things, things that I am now completing – like the publication of a series of four short stories, and the eBook I am almost ready to publish for this blog. Exciting things, for sure.

What was last year for you? A year of…

  • Productivity, where you got tons of important stuff accomplished?
  • Perseverance, where you chose one or two goals and focused on them until they were met?
  • Courage, with no negative self-talk and putting yourself out there without worry?

Whatever it was, congratulations! You made big strides.
