I guess you meant the year 2018.

I have inched at a snail's pace towards my goal of being published but I got another 99% work yet to be done. So, have I accomplished it? Nope, but surely I shall :P

Thank you for your attention to details! Edited the post :)

2018 has been a wonderful year. This year I decided to study something I loved and in September I got my degree as a pastry chef. Something that makes me immensely happy and especially because I achieve it in part thanks to @esteemapp thanks for all the support and be part of this great dream. That 2019 is a better year and that everything we set out to achieve.

During 2018 my main focus has been on taking care of myself and working my way through the grief of losing the man I loved to cancer in 2017. I feel that I am doing so much better with it all as 2018 comes to an end. Every time someone comes in through the door, I have finally been able to stop expecting that it's him. Having eSteem to fill my days has been a big part of my recovery and I appreciate all of you more than you will ever know

Β·

It is never easy to lose those we love and we always want it to be a nightmare and wake up and have them by our side. But it makes me very happy that in all of us you will find some help and you know that we will always try to make your days a little happier. Love you very much! Thanks for being part of my 2018 I think I will never have words to say how grateful I am with you❀

You do make my days brighter! Thanks for your very sweet comment.

So sorry to hear this Melinda. 2018 would have been so difficult as each special occasion brings back all the memories of the time with a loved one. You have been a big part of my 2018 on Steemit and I truly appreciate you kindness and support. You are blessed with a wonderful heart, dear friend. πŸ’•

I know that you understand how hard the anniversaries are. I feel really blessed to have gotten to know you this year! 2019 is going to be a great year for all of us!

Yes, definitely it is onward and upward. 😊

Sad to know about him, almost four years ago I had lost my Mom and diseases was same. I pray to God please keep away people from this disease.

I am so sorry that your mom had cancer, too. It is a horrible disease. Thank you so much for your kind words.

It is hard my dear Melinda but you have to go on. He would have wanted you to do it. The loved ones who leave too soon are never really gone, they stay in our hearts. Plus, you are not alone, you have us, your Steemit gang. πŸ™‚

Thanks for your kind words Roxy! It has taken me a while, but most of the time I'm doing just fine these days. What a process grief is quite incredible. I'm glad to be feeling that I've moved through the worst part of it. But you know how it is, I will miss him forever.

I know, Melinda. The pain will always be there. But what else can we do apart from moving on? It is good you managed to surpass the worst and I think having the loved ones by your side really helped. Also, being active on Steemit had a therapeutic effect. πŸ™‚

2018 will be remembered by me as a series of visits to the dentist and oral surgeon. I had to have a lump removed from inside my cheek and spent a night in the hospital.
Aside from several extractions and surgery, 2018 went quite smoothly and Hubby has made me breakfast every morning since my hospital scare where the surgeon nicked an artery. I had to go back in the operating room after a lot of blood loss. I think Hubby thought I was a goner.
I will remember 2018 as the year I met so many wonderful people as I first signed up for Steemit in 2018 and started using the eSteem mobile app. Thanks @esteemapp!
2018 has certainly been a learning experience and a year to appreciate each day.
Learn to not sweat the small stuff..be happy! πŸ₯° πŸ’—

This question is inspiring and makes me feel I want to create a big post about it actually. But to sum everything together I can say this year bring a lot of things. One good lesson was about the value of everything we have. Once we loose it we can value. Though I can say it was a year of gratitude yet this year taught me about valuing all I have. I learned a lot of new professional skills this year and a lot of new human qualities raised in me. Feeling more friendliness to others and started to understand what the compassion is (I hope so). Good year!

I just realized I had no plan for 2018 that's why I can not say anything concrete about it. This means I have to sit and plan for 2019 wisely to move on...

Thank you for your competition, it's really nice opportunity to think about life and understand important things.

Β·

I want to say a big public Thank You to you for all the work you've done so far for us! Thanks to you we can enjoy these lovely graphics, which makes eSteem more fun. Whatever your plans may be for the upcoming year, I wish you all the best and happiness!
Keep up the good work and be an awesome esteemian as always πŸ™‚

My pleasure!

2018 has been a fruitful year. When Baby E started daycare over a year, it took him months to get used to. When Baby M was ready this year, I dreaded it may be the same but he went straight into it after the 1st day. Once both kids are in daycare, my life has been a lot easier. Less stressed and able to focus on myself. 2018 was not just about family but also myself. I realised I didn't look after myself previously when I started having a family and I have changed this in 2018.

I couldn't attend Steemfest in 2017 due to baby being too young but this year in 2018, I made sure I was able to attend and lucky my husband supported this as he knew it was something I really wanted so they whole family flew to Europe and made it a family holiday. Focusing on myself more in 2018 was an achievement and with the support from my partner, I was able to accomplish this goal.

How was your year 2018?

Well, for me, every year were awesome for me even though there were lots of up and downs but, most importantly were the happiness that I had with my family. It's all the same thing and stuffs that we were doing but, the real thing is that our feelings are the only thing that is changing in our everyday life because the love that me and my family have are the best things that always increasing everyday, every week, every month and every year till the very last.

So, What I had accomplished?

I think I already answered the question and it's really understandable.. :D

The Family Man,

This is a nice question and also a sensitive one. It makes you go back in time and review the almost past year. πŸ™‚
Let's see.... 2018 was a good year. Sure, some things could have been better but the overall aspect looks good. We were healthy and we spent a lot of time together as a family.
What could have been better, me having a career change. But time is not lost and hopefully 2019 will bring some good karma towards me.
By the way, in 2018 good karma brought eSteem mobile on my phone and this is a great thing. πŸ™‚

2018 has been nothing short of goodness and challenges. It is the year I started to learn swimming in this ocean called Steemit. A year where I realise I love to blog, to take photos, to do selfies, to mingle around with different types of cultures and ethnic groups here in Steem.

The year started off with us decided to gradually wean off tube-feeding from our 3-year-old CDH son and actually taught him how to eat: chew and swallow and breathe. Now he is eating already although still need to top up with tube-feed in order to ensure he has enough food.

This is also the year I have been given the opportunity to be in eSteem team, something I could not even imagine I would have the chance. My friends said that the lucky charm was with me.

Indeed, I had accomplished much, not without failure and mistakes, but that is when I learn and make improvement. Also, as I typed this one, I am honored to say today is my Steemiversary. 9th December 2019 is my Steemit 1st birthday.

What would I say, I am blessed to come to know Steemit and then esteem and many wonderful communities here namely TeamMalaysia, Steemitbloggers, Steemitmamas, eSteem, TheAlliance and Dtube. And many more which I can't finish typing...

Let us look forward for greater year ahead. 2019, here we come. :)

2018 is happy year for me. First, this year is the time when I join steemit and use the esteem application. Second, I know Steemit community that I meet directly or joins in discord group such as the Esteem University. Third, This year is also a crucial point because I was finally able to return to my birth place after 10 years of moving due to assignments. Fourth, My target is to make a house for my wife and child also happen this year. In general, 2018 is a pleasant year. But one thing that hasn't accomplished is I haven't been able to get 1000 SP. But nevermind, its keep my spirit to accomplish in next year. Thanks @esteemapp.

Year 2018 was a breakthrough for me. I realized my dream and I meet love of my life.
On beginning of the year i resigned from job that made me sick... I mean this literally... I still have stomach problems because of it. I changed my diet, quit alkohol, smoking and other bad habits ;p
After this I felt much better... but then clarity of my mind did not allowed me to escape from problems anymore... I needed big change in my life, so I decided go on few months to Mexico, Equador, Peru.
In Mexico I meet girl. I still feel powerful connection towards her, like I waited for her all my eternity... but after some time she needed to go back to her country - Germany. After 2 months of traveling, I realized, I love her and I went after her to Germany.
Then we went to Poland - to my home. I needed to close some chapter in my life. I decided to stop run away, and take responsibility. I had a court case related to psychedelics, which finally ended and they closed the case :) From this I learned it's worthy to say truth and be honest with myself. I learned its good to stop running away and go to the dark cave, face the past and the shadow.
Then we went to the Ukraine visit my girlfriend's parents This visit healed relations between her and her parents.
Then we went to Santiago on Camino de frances (we made 800 km by foot in 36 days). Ohhh we made it, and we learned a lot :)
Now it's winter time, meditative time... regeneration time... I gathering strength for he next year.

But most important thing I've learned in 2018 it's to listen and follow your heart, then gather up the courage to jump into the chaos of life... For sure you will end up much better person. Just leave your comfort zone, be honest and follow your heart!

Happy new Year , FRIENDS !!! πŸ€—πŸ€—πŸ€—

My career goal is to help obese and morbidly obese people loss weight naturally like I did eight years ago. I do not want any other person or family to go through the miseries obesity causes like I and my family have had to suffer.

This year I have not reached as many people as I wished. The obesity statistics keep rising and I just keep working to reach more people and help them every day.

On a personal level, this year has been a difficult one. I have had a lot of failure on many fronts. But my goal is always to keep trying regardless of what life throws me and I have succeeded with that goal.

this difficult day in 2018, but the struggle must always be done second by second to reach a better life tomorrow.

struggle and try and pray always to reach my goal.

hopefully by the end of 2018 this will be the beginning of my success.
amiin.

please pray and support for me.

Thanks @esteemapp

er, i didn't have a plan per se, but things have gone pretty well. family and work and finances good... just wondering where steem will land with the bucks i've put in ... peace y'all

It has been 5years that I was away from my family.Many things happened during these 5years,my grandmother died last 2015, my only son wedding,I was not there,my two granddaughters born without me which is until now I never seen them personally.

Thank you very much.

Hmm deep Question here. 2018 was so full of enthusiasm and expectations. Many things were on my wish list for the year, lo! at some points, many things didnt turn out as planned.

Yes, am grateful for the few I achieved and this gives me hope that with life, the future shall be better.

Am not giving-up on my dreams
AM not giving-up on myself
I won't throw in the towel

My future is bright!

Year 2018 had been great!!

Since I have delivered a baby boy last year, i had somehow committed myself to full and exclusive breastfeeding my baby. I wasnt able to do that with my first because I lack the knowledge and information. Though I was kinda hesitant because I was pretty scared I might nit make it or I might not produce enough.

Thankfully, last July 2018 marked our 1st year of exclusively breastfeeding my baby! I did it! I survived and I am still bfeeding my little one. Yesss! It was not an easy journey, breastfeeding takes a lot of patience dedication and love to pull it through. I had to give up a lot of things including my sexylicious and curvalicious body!!! πŸ˜‚πŸ€£.. I have to eat and eat in order to lactate! I think i gained so much actully.

So for me, that is my greatest accomplishment for the year as a mother!

Scott and I actually have accomplished what we set out to do and a bit more. Personally, we wanted to get into an apartment and start connecting with our family better. Travelwise, we wanted to complete at least two states (we did Oklahoma & Arkansas), have a successful social site, and get business together.

The travel business we have been working on has enabled us to go from 237 counties to 442 counties and to join up with Steem and become a valuable community member. We look forward to an even more successful 2019.

whose name is human is never satisfied. I am grateful for what I got and tried my best for myself. hopefully the good that I get can be felt by others. which is not good I get hopefully never felt by others. Helping for togetherness is very noble.

My life of 2018

Another fold of life is now coming to an end when the year 2018 will come to its close. How's my life within this year?

I can say that this year is full of success and at some point failures also come along. What is important to me is that within this year it may at my point of catching dreams or in the point of getting up from the ground, my heart keeps on rejoicing and full of gratitude because all that happened to me are all blessings and opportunities to live life for God for others. I am happy to be with the people who are with me now, to the people who happened to be my friends in fb or in this group where i belong now, this i can say one of the greatest gift i received to be with you as a family. My work, my workmates, the company where i am now, with my new and old friends as well as with my family. My heart is full of gratitude reminiscing all beautiful memories we made together. Within this year, there are goals in my life that triumphantly achieved, and grasp the fruit of victory but still there are more works to be done and need to be work though its quite challenging but i believe i can make it at the end, with the help others, with your help and with God's Providence. Allow me to take this opportunity to say thank you for being part of my journey in this year 2018. Thank you for your support, encouragement and for everything. We look forward to another venture of life where it brings more and abundant blessings, opportunities and success in all aspects of our life. πŸ˜ŠπŸ’Ÿ

Thank you so much @esteemapp and all my #esteemit friends ...


My this year 2018 is learning year ... when I start put my mind ready .... when all this what was take out from this big coin market , start come and run back. What then ? Where I'm then ? What I go do then?
I see that there are big investors out there waiting for the price to be as low as possible so that it would be possible to buy a large quantity of coins up so they start control the whole market by a single person or bank.

So I HODL and I learn :)


Very interesting question so I would like to say that this year I couldn't touch my goal but it was satisfactory at all because I have gained lots of experiences and also met new people in real life and here in Steemit too. One thing more I would like to say that I was out for months from Steemit due to some reason and it was the big loss for me but gradually I have controlled all situations and now it is okay.

my 2018 included my way back as a streamer on Steemit / Vimm :)

Previously I wanted to interpret the meaning of life according to several sites that I got. The meaning of life means the purpose of life. We can imagine how it feels to work, to work hard without a clear purpose. You can be sure, we will ask, "What is all this for?"
Sometimes I personally think and reflect on everything I have tried and I got today. Of course my gratitude for all that I have got today.
Many of the things I dreamed of were fulfilled earlier this year. 2018 is a year of mercy for me, but sometimes we humans who are creatures equipped with lust, always feel deprived. And I hope the next year will be even better. Thank you by @sparrider

2018 for me was a difficult year in terms of the economy, in fact it was a difficult year for all Venezuelans, however in the spiritual area that is the area where I work I think it was successful. I am a pastor of a Church and we have growth in number and spiritual growth in the believers, so I feel satisfied with my 2018. For me, the most important thing is the work in the work of God.

2018 year not specially good because always catch badluck so my was not complete in 2018.
Giving more profit and purchase car....

It was a great year for me, I was able to travel to Thailand this year, I sold some of my crypto duing the ATH in January and im in my second year of running my business. My blog was crowed south Africa's best business blog and continues to grow. I know get 85 000 users to my blog every month

I'm also very close to finishing a project website i started 3 years ago.
