7 What date from 2013 will remain etched upon your memory?
There are actually several that come to mind. I’m choosing not to share them here specifically because they don’t have any significance for anyone else but me. Really, this entire year could be marked as a very vital year in the life of Kelli. Kevin and I bought a house together, most of Nora’s milestones happened this year, my diagnosis, any real breakthroughs I made in treatment, really coming to terms with a lot of things in my past, becoming a “real” author with my publication, just everything. Lol. Everything happened in 2013, to try and list all the dates would take until next week.
8 What was your biggest achievement of the year?
I would say my biggest achievement was strengthening our marriage. I really put us through the ringer a few times in dealing with my diagnosis and really opening up about the trauma included in all of that. But we made it. Kevin and I are closer than we’ve ever been, and I learned a lot about myself along the way.
9 What was your biggest failure?
This one is a tricky one. I don’t really consider anything that doesn’t work out a failure. There are always lessons to be learned, even if things don’t work out the way you want them to or it takes a little longer to get to your goal. Just because a,b, and c didn’t happen doesn’t mean some other amazing opportunity won’t pop up. Maybe not tomorrow, maybe not next month, maybe not even next year, but who knows?
