overview of goals for 2015: satisfied / goals for 2016: sorta more reasonable yet more intense
icon: "exuviate (photo of a dragonfly with shimmery green wings after its last metamorphosis, standing next to its previous exoskeleton)"
[wins and misses for 2015 goals]500 photos taken that I like. () I haven't actually looked through them, but I took enough photos that I'm pretty sure I'd like at least 500.
365 instances of unprompted openness. () nooooo. I'd say maybe 80? it's hard.
365 days of keeping up with text responses at least once daily. () I didn't do this perfectly, but I did more than 2/3rds of the days, so it's a win.
365 days of taking one cellphone snapshot daily. () I didn't do this perfectly, but I did more than 2/3rds of the days, so it's a win.
303 days that include a spiritual practice, aiming for early in the day. () nope. I did great at the beginning of the year but then everything went off.
252 LJ entries. () 172, not quite, but pretty good.
88 love bank entries. () no I forgot this existed *terribly sad face* if you did something very sweet for me please remind me so I can write it down.
77 fractals. () no, I made the most beautiful one ever and then it wouldn't render and I tried over and over and I was too upset about that to move on to a new fractal, fail.
55 dreams recorded. () 18, not even half of what was intended.
55 artworks created. () not quite, but it was at least 40, so I'm marking it a success.
55 intuitions recorded. () nope, maybe 5.
55 days of reading a spiritual book. () nope, maybe 20?
44 me-initiated text conversations with KWT, Abby, Anika, Kat, Allison, Jaime (each). () nope turns out I wayyy overestimated my potential.
44 me-initiated fb messages to Heather and Kylei (each). () noooo boo.
30 30-minute meditations. () nope, maybe 12?
16 intimacy practices. () nope, I think we did 11, but I am counting it as a win because of alllll the shit that went down.
13 1-on-1 or 1-on-2 hangouts with KWT, Kylei, Heather, Jaime, Allison (each). () No, but I did more than half! this is a win!
14 w Heather
9 w Allison
9 w Kylei
7 w Jaime
KWT isn't counted because they cut out very early in the year.
11 new casual friends made. () my reaction was to laugh and say nope, but then when I counted it was about 16! I'm counting people I have know peripherally for years but never REALLY talked to.
8 crafty parties. () nope and I'm not even going to count because I think it's like 3 *deep frown*
7 new park visits (parks I haven't been to before). ( ) I did 14!!! partly because Topaz dragged me up mountains but hey it counts.
4 concerts. () no, I think I went to 2? can't remember. Need to use the word 'concert' on the calendar next time.
4 sets of talismans made. () no. feeling distressed about this.
3 sets of icons made. () no. I don't even remember if I did one.
3 new good friends made. () I got 2 out of 3: Sydney and Cass. They're both quite wonderful so I'm satisfied. Also the Odd Squad bond has strengthened, so I am counting that as a good friend. Group relationships are their own thing.
2 22-day writing streaks. () not quite, but so close that I'm counting it.
2 sets of card readings. () nope but that's alright.
2 musicsharing posts. () nope and I'm sad about that.
2 art inspiration posts. () nope, boo.
1 new tattoo. () money bleh.
1 long (3.5+ hour) drive by myself. () no, but I couldn't anyway because my car isn't up for it.
1 burn-centered event. () nope. money.
1 class led at a convention. ( ) did FOUR at TWO cons, plus panels.
More physical exertion. () yep!
More work on my etsys and art fb and local selling of my art. () I did do more, but not much more.
More writing in my book of magic. () Yes! I made some new spells which I have been meaning to transcribe but haven't yet oops.
More new kinds of sex/physical intimacy. () no huge changes, but some new things. And new realizations.
More energy work with more people. () yep!
Redo my "characters in the story of my life" post. () nooo.
Do year-overviews for 2012, 2013, 2014. () noooo.
So that's about half and half for number of items, but for importance of items I mostly succeeded. I thought for sure I had failed on the friends stuff but I did much better than I thought! Also I hadn't included several goals which I met: graduate college, come out to more members of biofamily and give them a chance, write two papers suitable for publication, become more assertive, prepare & submit name change paperwork, keep houseplants alive, and get comfortable writing image descriptions.
