1. Shock
    I know this is a pretty basic thing to say, but I can't believe tomorrow is December. This year went by the quickest a year has ever gone by for me. It sort of makes you stand back in awe of the passage of time.
  2. Happiness
    2015 has been a challenging year for me. I moved around a lot and held a lot of different jobs. I struggled with anxiety in a way that I never had in the past. I'm happy that 2015 is almost over because I'm looking forward to a new year.
  3. Pride
    I'm proud of all that I've overcome this year. I've learned how to defeat anxiety. I'm proud that I took time to explore my thoughts, and figure out what I want to do in life. I'm proud of all the work I put in to my grad school application. I'm proud to have fallen into a deep psychological suckhole and to have pulled myself out of it, stronger and more compassionate. I'm happy that I've maintained and strengthened my relationships. I'm proud of where I stand today.
  4. Hopeful
    I know that my future is bright and warm. I know that it is full of love, happiness, laughter, exploration, and fulfillment. I know this because I am strong and steady enough to make that reality.
