Reflections on 2018

Like I said in a recent post (here), I was not the biggest fan of 2018 but I did learn some things that made the year worthwhile (just trying to be positive here 😉). For a brief summary: I learned that it is very possible to burn out, even doing a job that you actually care about. I learned that NO is not always a bad word. I learned that if I drop a ball or two, the world does not fall apart. I learned that a person's negative reaction to you may not always reflect you... but themselves. I learned that not all things deserve giving a shit about. I learned that you have to stick up for yourself... and that is OK. I learned that negative/stupid/ridiculous comments on random news web pages do not merit being addressed. I learned that, sometimes, all you have to do is ask for help and, other times, it is easier to do it by yourself (I just have to figure out which one works for what situation 😉 ). I learned that I do not understand how boys fight together and, as long as they are not breaking furniture or each other, I will just step away and let them figure it out for themselves. I learned that I actually like football (American version) and can even understand it to some degree. I learned that, even if I am not enthusiastic about something, fake it... and enthusiasm will follow... or, if it doesn't, at least you tried 😉

Thanks, 2018, for the lessons learned... and thanks to the rest of you for sharing in my year! xox

  1. Happy New Year to you and your family Celena. And remember to cake care of you self first, because if you don't, you can't be there for everyone else.

  2. Hear, hear, cheers to a fresh new year!
    Loved 2018, because we met in real life X

  3. Ønsker dig og dine et godt nytår.
    Det er så vigtigt at sørge for egen omsorg. For som Cat skriver, er det ikke muligt at gøre noget for andre. En anden måde det kan skrives på "Elsker du ikke dig selv, er det vanskeligt at elske andre".
    Glæder mig til 2019.
