      1. A refocus on my outlook towards life. I now try to focus on the positives life brings me and take the time to complete a gratitude journal daily. It’s taken a while to get here but I am definitely loving it 😁

  1. Hah, I am always very different to the way that I once was (I have done a bunch of these time relevant reflexive thought exercises over the years), yet I realise that my present answers are the same. I say how different I am to the way I used to be (without elaborating in which ways I am changed…).
    3 years ago? I was in the same boat I am in now (without an employment contract and back to on-call casual work). External circumstances are very similar, however it is the internal space that I am changed, for I believe in the bullshit I preach. Back then, I didn’t believe in anything.

      1. Yeah. But people only see the external of other people. And therefore the constant “liar” and “secretive” and “How about try being honest for once”
        Because… contextual information is too long winded… And therefore a waste of one’s breath.

  2. I had just finished a few months of radiation and cancer surgery just before that so I was pretty low 3 years ago physically. Mentally I was in panic, but hopeful and living life to my best. I had a few months to wait to see if getting toasted had gotten what the surgery didn’t. But I was glad to be alive and I’m cancer free. I’m more relaxed now again. I’m more appreciative of each day. I try to make better use of each day and enjoy it.

    1. It seems that when we get close to losing it, we become more appreciative about life. I hope people can learn this from storytelling and they don’t have to experience these things by themselves.

  3. 3 years ago I was unemployed, learning about self sufficiency, and chewing on dandelion leaves. This year I am working full time, working on obtaining more credentials. I have a purpose, and take pleasure in being of service.

      1. Sleep was honestly the big one. I had been working overnights for several years at that point, and my body couldn’t take it anymore. The schedule also contributed to social isolation and the job itself had a toxic atmosphere which didn’t help. I ended up taking a big pay cut to get on working days, but it allowed me to go back to school and get me into a better situation career-wise while meeting new people.

  4. Wisdom, strength, and experience gained through moving to a new city, living through a hurricane and a flooded house and in a hotel for ten months while rebuilding, two new jobs, and a new blog to boot.

  5. Not a whole lot of difference, still in the same place (living at my mother’s with my eldest child, who’s 20), no job, no prospects. On the upside, I’ve started the library course that I’ve been wanting to do for ages.

  6. Me now understands providing for a family, than me three yrs ago when it was just me and hubby. Me now, works doing what she loves as a caregiver, than me three years ago just working to pay bills.

  7. I have the same ambitions that I had three years ago. The difference is just that back then, I used to think that it will be a matter of no time, but now I realise that it will take some time. It may take some time, but it will definitely happen.

      1. Maybe! Maybe they’re right … And 3years ago my family is not like that…I don’t what happened to them…Maybe I misunderstood them…😥😥😥😥😥😥😥😶😶😶😶😶😶😶😶😶😶😶😶😶😶😶😣😣😣😣😣😣😣😣😣😣

      1. Enjoying life to the fullest… 🙂

        “Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out and loudly proclaiming; “Wow! What a ride!” Hunter S. Thompson

  9. I create healthy boundaries with well chosen words that provide clarity, empathy, compassion and kindness when I speak what my truth in experiencing my relationships with others. Fearless of the reactions and responses I encounter.

  10. The me three years ago had never experienced true heart break. I believe this is how I finally found myself three years later. I received my first real rejection, My heart finally got broken by someone else (not me breaking someone else’s), My mamaw passed away from lung cancer. All of these things really opened my eyes to see who I need to keep in my life (really who left me in the hard times), how cruel people can really be even when they don’t know you, and it showed me my own true colors.

  11. The change is HUGE!
    Three years ago I was dumped by the person in whose hands I had put my entire life, career, future, desire. In addition of the horrible pain, I had to face reality about how many “fake friends” I had around me, so it was a double, triple break up. I spent one year almost alone, barely going outside, putting myself so many questions, keeping a job in which I was feeling stressed and unhappy almost 90% of the time. I was on the way to find my courage, but oh my, it took soooo much effort and pain!

    Fast forward to three years after: I changed country, became 10 times more secure of myself, wiped away the ghost from my past who hunted me for so long, have a job in a field I love, travel very often for pleasure, share all these experience with the person I wish to have by my side for many many years, if not forever. I did all the things I was so scared of, and that I thought I would have never done!

  12. Have one less friend, two more diagnosed illnesses and now i actually know what i’m doing with my nikon camera and photoshop (continuing learning about photography)
