    What was your biggest accomplishment of 2019?

    As we look forward to 2020 with new plans and dreams, it's a good time to reflect on past successes.

    I asked this question of my DS last night, and when he turned the question back on me, I had to think about it for a moment, but then I determined that unequivocally my biggest accomplishment was downsizing: specifically, getting rid of 2 tons of crap. It was a huge task, but we committed to it, and DH and I did it without too many arguments about what to pitch and what to spare.

    The Purge will have have lifetime positive consequences for me. I feel I've grabbed at least one brass ring of the the simple life.

    I can’t think of any big ones but I did get my new Maltese Amy and secure a contract to teach a graduate class. I am excited because I have only taught at the undergraduate level.

    I didnt have accomplishments really. But my year of 2019 was marked with a bunch of short travell events. I stayed 7 or 8 times overnight in hotels or Air bnb places, all for garden club/plant related activities. Only one event was an actual long distance vacation, our trip to New England.

    So, I would characterize the year as “not especially interesting travel hops.”

    Mostly a year of rest after two previous years of upheaval. One thing stands out though - this fall, I developed some sort of physical ailment with mysterious painful symptoms which I immediately followed up on. Invasive medical tests were done with more to follow and so I told myself NO more of this "healthcare". I went to the library and checked out every book on healing I could find. I convinced myself true or not that my mental status might have much to do with all of my symptoms. Within a matter weeks and lots of introspection, all the symptoms gradually disappeared.

    l travelled to the south and southwest US which was a longterm wish, figured out that I needed a dog, got my little rescue Beagle who is settling in well becoming more confident and mischievous as the months go by. I ordered a clicker to train him as he is ready for learning tricks.
    Cath, this was a good thread for me this morning as I was feeling a little blue and needed a kick in the pants to count my blessings. Once I started counting, life was a joy again.

    Worked on overhauling my portfolio and my trading and had a solid year in my account, implementing new strategies and new philosophy. Also solid performances in my son and grandchildren's accounts. Lots of hard work and new strategies, which held.
