[New Year, New You] Final Public Writing Prompt: Wheel of Morality Turn, Turn, Turn, Tell Us the Lesson that We Must Learn

I feel weirdly sad about this being our last public prompt together, Charmers.  I’d probably feel more sad if  I had slept like a normal human being last night but I had been sleeping fitfully since 3:30a and then not at all since 5a.  Good times.  Lots of weird anxiety for some reason.  All of this naturally is tres sexy for Valentine’s Day.

Anyway.  This week’s prompt is simple, reflect on the last nine weeks and talk about what you’ve learned.  About yourself, about goal setting, about your magical practice, whatever was meaningful to you.  Also reflect on where you would like to see yourself heading now that you’ve accomplished what you’ve accomplished.

Non-participating Charmers, I appreciate how patient you’ve been with this process and how kind you’ve been to myself and others during this time.  You can now look forward to a return of what passes for normal blogging here.

Participating Charmers, this time together has been v. meaningful to me and I’ve appreciated how you’ve made me laugh and cry and have let me in on a v. private part of your lives.  It’s been an awesome experience bonding together and I am a better person for it and I thank you for that.

Go forth, be excellent to each other.

    I already said so in my post, but thanks for running this project, Deb! It has been inspiring, and no matter what happens, I'm going to be using at least some of the New Year New You prompts to help with further goals! Here's my response:
