What can I say about 2016? So many things. It was a transformative year for me. I finally understood the path to happiness was through my thoughts and perception. I quit my career and have been working on myself. I let go of old fears about money and self-worth. I met Don and finally have a mutually healthy relationship. I am moving forward in every aspect of life.
As has become my tradition, I review my year in no particular order, with no editing. Here goes.
