Gearing up for 2007 - Day Four

We're almost to the midway point of our reflection exercise. Thanks to all that participate. Today's question is a good one so here we go.

What did I complete or release?

    2005:
    Easier Said Than Done, my debut novel. I completed it, published it and even sold a few copies. (smile) As for things I released: a lot of negative feelings. I tend to harbor and one thing I really wanted to work on in 2005 was my ability to forgive and my victim mentality. AND I worked hard on it. Haven't gotten all the way there but it was important for me to release the anger that has been swirling inside of me for the man that raped me my sophomore year in college. Yes, it has been that long. I finally sat down and thought about all the side effects that manifested in my life because of that anger and I realized that I was continuing to victimize myself. I had to make a choice: let it go or be a victim for the rest of my life. I chose not to be a victim.

    2006:
    This year, I chose to release a lot of people in my life. Hangers on, friends, associates - whatever you want to call them that don't really contribute anything to my life. And I'm still releasing.

    I am discovering that 2006 was a more of a personal growth year for me while 2005 was more professional. Can't wait to see what 2007 brings!
