Ok, it's the end of the year. Time to Take Stock....
I just realized that this whole year has been a series of crises that, in years past, would've totally wiped me out emotionally. Then, I would've gotten all depressed and upset.
But this year, Ok yeah, I've been whiney and a general PITA,
BUT.... I haven't collapsed in a puddle of tears, I haven't gotten addicted to ETOH, didn't start smoking again, have not lost my mind, run away, or tried other Ineffective Coping Skills and ---
BIGGEST VICTORY!!!---I hardly even thought about doing negative things like that. I just tried to set my sights on goals I could do every day. Like getting to work. Getting through work. Been that way since June.
And I realized, today:
I"M STILL WORKING EVERY DAY.
and by golly, THE WORST IS OVER. (OK, maybe by default, since this is the end of the year :chuckle )
I have to admit, ATTITUDE has a lot to do with conquering problems.
So here's the question:
Tell us YOUR BIGGEST PERSONAL VICTORY THIS YEAR!
