Haiku-A-Day December Challenge #30: Things That Worked For Me in 2018

I am joining Elisabeth from The Dirigible Plum in writing a Haiku-A-Day during the month of December.

Haiku-A-Day December Challenge #30: 
Things That Worked For Me in 2018

I am often guilty of focusing on all of the things that don't go right in my life. I can listen to negative self-talk and suddenly find myself stuck in a low place. After reading Elisabeth's recent post about what worked for her in 2018, I thought that it would be interesting (and healthy) to focus on a few things that worked for me this year. I wrote bit of a list poem in the form of a double Haiku: 

Pausing to breathe in,
out. Writing for myself. Lists
of gratitude. Walks.

Reading. Listening.
Noticing. Showing up when
discouragement came.  


  1. Pausing to breathe in is a positive move for 2019, Trina. Happy New Year!

  2. Happy New Year to you, Carol! I hope to continue to continue these all in 2019

  3. So many things here on your list that refresh me too and that I don't do often enough. Walks were very sustaining, especially through spring and summer. I'm wondering if I really need to abandon them in winter? Sure, it's cold and snowy and icy, but that's what long underwear and boots are for!
