From this blog...DAY 6: BREAKTHROUGHS
What were your biggest breakthroughs? This can be in any area: emotional, spiritual, career, etc.
I think I had a couple of breakthroughs this year, to be honest, and some back-sliding, too.
Breakthrough 1: I'm not responsible for other people's happiness, only my own.
Breakthrough 2: If I want something, I have to make it happen. Waiting doesn't do anything but make me yearn.
Breakthrough 3: Feeding myself (emotionally, spiritually, physically) helps me become more of who I want to be. I haven't quite got this down though - it is a tiny crack of a breakthrough that I understand but haven't fully implemented/embraced/fulfilled.
Breakthrough 4: Returning to a spiritual practice grounds me.
These seem simple and obvious, but really living them - believing them - that's the key. I have scratched the surface of all of these issues before (sometimes more than one time) but every time I revisit them, I get to go deeper, find more, commit more.
