Describe a significant experience that has happened in the past year. How did it affect you? Are you grateful? Relieved? Resentful? Inspired?

I got a full-time job at my company, and I'm happier at work than I've been in years. More to the point, I'm proud of myself for doing it, because I know I took a chance and worked hard for it.

My travel this year. I am so grateful! I stepped out of my comfort zone so I am proud of myself. Michael and I traveled well together, each of us deferring to the other when it felt right. It was good.

Beginning treatment for my lymphoma has created a wealth of new experiences. I'm delighted, inspired, grateful and somewhat surprised by the love and support I've received

I fell in love for the first time in my life. Pure, unadulterated, blissfully happy love. The kind of love that makes you smile like a lunatic when walking down the street. The kind that feels like the warmth of the sun on a cool spring day. The kind that feels like forever. I didn't know it was possible to love like this and while it isn't always easy, and neither my partner nor I are perfect, we're learning how to be the best partners we can be and I feel proud of us for it.

I have learned to overcome fear. I was startled about myself being scared, not feeling good enough, not setting boundaries. I was scared about my future and tried to push it too hard. I was scared about people telling me I was not strong enough (and they did). I think and I feel now that I can do it. I will find a way.
