Looking backwards...

This is a two part post, in the first I shall look back over the highs and lows of  2010, in part two I shall write about my hopes and worries for 2011. I invite you to do a similar post!

2010: The highs

  • Well, passing my A levels and getting into my first choice university was my biggest highlight of the year.Finishing school forever, that's quite a big deal for me :)
  • Competing  in 2 cheerleading competition, coming first and second. 
  • I have read some AWESOME books : 'The Road' '1984' 'switchblade' 
  • I can safely say, that eating disorder wise this year was better than last. I have tried to recover so many times (I see this as a good thing) and am starting to feel I may be getting somewhere!
  • Best film of the year: no question, Harry Potter.
  • The amazing Majorca holiday was a real highlight, and I discovered a lot about my self. 
  • I continued in some brilliant friendships, notably my mentor R, my best friends C and H.
2010: The Lows
  • This year I have made my way through 3 different jobs, each of which I have hated. Although maybe this should go in the positives because I have learnt a good deal from each job.
  • Although I have felt better with my eating over all, I had some very low patches, some of my lowest yet.
  • I have had some pretty shocking relationships. I have had only one boyfriend this year, and what a loser he was. Good riddance! I have had my taste of one night stands as well, and have decided they are not for me. 
  • I had to quit cheerleading
I think this year has been a funny one. I have learnt a lot, not the easy way, still, learning is good! 

So I invite you to look back over your year, the highs and the lows.

This is a good idea! I think I'll take you up on your invitation sometime between now and 2011.

You have more positives on your list than negatives-- that's great! And the fact that you are able to learn from the negatives is even better. I have no doubt that you will continue to thrive in the coming year.

I'm looking forward to reading part II!

Wishing you well,

I think it's great that you have learned so much this year, and that there are so many positive things on your list! You should be proud of yourself for making progress in combatting the E.D., and in finishing school, with great grades, and moving forward with your life. You have a lot to live for. I think your blog is excellent, btw, and thanks for the comments you left on mine.

I basically had to do that as an assignment for my therapist.

IT REALLY HELPED. I'm glad you did this for yourself :) You deserve it

I love this post, I did a sort of similar one just before. I am glad you had more highs than lows from your lists. I hope your 2011 is awesome :-)
