Back in January, we did a post about our 2019 goals. I wrote:

I’ve noticed that I have a tendency to put other people’s work before my own. Sometimes, that’s necessary because of agreed upon deadlines, but that’s not always the case. 

So, this year, I’m going to work on valuing my own work as much as I do the work of others. In addition, I’ll be taking time to decompress. I don’t want to burn out. I’ve done it before, and right now, I feel dangerously close to it, again. 

I realize these goals aren’t particularly tangible or quantifiable, like the goals I usually make.  But, right now, I think that’s for the best. 

While I’m not perfect, I’m happy to report that I’ve made huge improvements in making time for my own work and valuing it as much as I do others. And surprise-surprise, I’ve gotten a lot more writing done. Amazing how that works…

I’ve also been making time for self-care which had been sorely lacking during the previous year. So, even though I’m not as far along on my own projects as I’d like to be, I’m definitely farther along than I would be if I’d continued last year’s work habits.

Hopefully, by the end of the year, I’ll be farther still.

    I have to tell you that your goal setting and accountability in this group has been a huge inspiration to me. Can’t say I actually set goals or anything like that yet, especially in the long term. But, I can now set, and complete, a daily goal – a time or two a week. This has been a skill set that I have never understood or been able to figure out. It is now making more sense to me. Thank you very much. In the realm of self-care and working ones issues, I have had a manger break through. For the first time in decades, I not only have a desire to design again, but I am excited about it. I see a glimmer of passion developing. It is exciting and awe inspiring. I have you and your group to thank for some of this progress. Thank you for being here and know that even when you guys are having rough times, your being here helps and inspires. Thank you!
