Hello, I’m excited to be publishing this post regarding a review of my 2019 and more importantly a forward-look into the coming year and decade! Last year I wrote a post about creating the sustainable habit of goal setting. I even wrote a mid-year review check-in like I set out to do. Although, I’ve been dreading my end of the year review mostly because I’ve failed at completing all of my goals.
This past week I went on a road trip with a colleague/friend. We were reminiscing about our pasts and the transformation in our lives today. We both agreed to share some pictures of ourselves from our past. In light of that, I’ve spent a couple of nights looking through old photo albums and going down memory lane.
With my story of overcoming addiction some of these memories are painful. However, not all. I certainly have plenty of good memories from my past and in particular from my childhood. I came across this picture of myself as a carefree little girl. That picture was taken in my bedroom at a little table I loved to “have tea” at with my stuffed animals. It reminded me of the joyful and vivid imagination I had as a little girl. When I look at this picture, I see pure, innocent, untainted joy.
