Well, maybe next year.
To live my life with love, not fear
To not be concerned about other people's opinions (real or imagined) of me.
To break through the old stereotypes I've held of myself and shine, unfettered.
So many things happened this last year that I had to consult, what else, my journal for verification. I'd forgotten a lot!
SO, here's my little year-in-review. OK, more like not-quite half-of-a-year-in-review. Just the highlights. I hope I didn't miss too much of importance.
I don't know why the photos are still on my old ISP's servers, but I won't complain.
With any luck, I'll get to finish this tomorrow. :)
Note: Links should open in one new window. Also, I tried to unlock any locked entries. There were only a couple, but if any slipped by, please let me know. Thanks!
