Question 2: Is there something that you wish you had done differently this past year? Alternatively, is there something you’re especially proud of from this past year?
Hmm. I’m not really sure. I’ve been okay for the past year, I think. I don’t really regret anything. I wish I had handled the break up with Kevin differently, but considering it was the first time I ever broke up with anyone, I wasn’t really sure how to do it. It also didn’t go the way I planned, and he didn’t respond the way I hoped he would (i.e., have a conversation, rather than close up on me — which I should have expected, considering that was one of the reasons for the conversation in the first place). I also really should have had a conversation with him sooner — where are we going, what are we doing, who are you really… all important questions. I’m trying to do it better this time around. We’ll see what happens.
As for something I am proud of, I am proud of myself for finishing yoga teacher training! I am proud of myself for doing it! Because it was something that was 100% for me. I am also proud of all the traveling I have done this year, because it is something important to me. And I am proud of myself for putting myself first for once, listening to my instincts, and doing what I want to do. There’s a magical kind of power there. I love it. I don’t want to let it go. I’m surprised it took me this long to find it, because it’s glorious.
