As this year, this decade is coming to a close, I am reminded how far I have come and how I have grown over the past 10 years.
Some steps may be small, but they are steps ahead nonetheless.
I intentionally defied doctor recommendations and fought to quit taking opioid medications even before the big society push to do so. It took over a year, but I did it.
I completed studies at the Professional Christian Coach Institute and obtained my first level of certification, CPLC (Certified Professional Life Coach).
I hosted local workshops on Boundaries using material from Doctors Cloud and Townsend. I also hosted local workshops on Defeating the Lies of Negative Self-Talk with the materials I created.
Journal prompts were posted weekly. I am working on consistency in all areas of online posting.
Other changes were small.
Like making an effort to wear make-up. I don’t usually do more than a foundation so I am like a teenager playing with make-up colors and techniques.
Despite the physical pain, I strive to walk – even a short distance – weekly.
I am working toward a routine of personal time with God.
There is no major life-changing step, yet there is so much to celebrate. Yes, there were failures. I learned from each one and used it as a step toward success.
