  1. I think that will be my thought life. And that will be because I have read more books on personal growth this past year. (It’s always been stories before!).

  2. My mindset. I didn’t realise how stuck I was. Changing how I think is gradually changing everything else.

      1. Having kids. When I saw them so and say the things they had learned from me I knew I had to do better.

  3. I would have to say mindset. My outlook on life is very different than it was a year ago- I’ll admit I was in a pretty dark place. It might be self-love though because if it wasn’t for that, I would still be fumbling about in the dark.

      1. This is difficult to answer, there are a variety of things that come to mind. First, realizing no one else can help me, I have to do it. Then, finding motivation, or my “why” (at first it was guilt and shame for being a bad mom, but now it’s for the lifestyle I want to live). Last, creating a routine. The routine had to revolve around regaining physical health (my baby is 13 months now), self-love (or mental health activities), and cultivating an environment that facilitated my goals. Having support from my husband (and close friends) and regular personal development helped too.

  4. Too close to call… 🙂

      1. Maybe one day I may browse my memories but now I am too busy making new memories… “You can’t start the next chapter of your life if you keep re-reading your last chapter.”

        It Is Down The Path Least Traveled I Shall Go..

        It is down the path least traveled I shall go
        To a rainbow filled horizon I venture,
        To seek, to learn, know peace, to enjoy life
        A path filled with wonderful adventure.

        A place where one is accepted as who they are
        A spirit kindled to life, when mortal born,
        A being coming from the depths within
        And not subject to ridicule and scorn.

        A place where I know freedom of thought and being
        I am what I am, don’t you see,
        Neither this one, neither that one, but all the above
        In a mortal world, a free spirit, that’s me.

        I do not travel the path alone, you see
        There are memories and spirits to behold,
        Those that share… the joy and sadness
        As I gather more memories, down that least traveled road.

        So how long will my journey be, one would ask
        Will I see the end of the path…ever?
        The answer, I believe, lies on the horizon
        Somewhere past… the 12th of Never….

        So I shall bring my ramblings to an end
        For there is one fact that I do know,
        To reach the horizon, the 12th of Never
        It’s down the path least traveled I must go!

      1. I thought that.. if i’m saying or doing good .. why should i hesitate .. so i started to speak what’s in my mind .. and i think being frank is good in my opinion .. frankness may hurt others for limited time but not for too long .. because it is “True ”

  5. Patience. I was transferred to another office/branch and have to work with new people again and oh, they’re very difficult people. My patience was really tested to the limits and I really am very impatient. Surprising how I was able to endure it for several months and now everything’s running smoothly. 😉
