reflect on this year and manifest what’s next
Lesson Learned. What was the best thing you learned about yourself this past year? And how will you apply that lesson going forward?
I’ve struggled with this one: No one things sticks out. I’ve learned that I can survive turning 40, and that I have the courage to do things that I wouldn’t have a few years ago (learning to mountain bike, becoming a talk radio show host, blogging and writing on a regular basis, and scaling two-story tall ladders while balancing paint and brush.) I’ve learned to bury much of my fear of public speaking, and I’ve learned that if I ask, the answer is so much more often yes than I would have imagined. (At least in some of my spheres the answer is often, “Yes.” In others, things are done the way they’ve always been done, and in spite of, or maybe because of extreme dysfunction, the answer will most likely be, “No.” Guess which one I am motivated to put my creative energies into?)
