Good things of 2015

I did an experiment this year where you write down everything good that happens to you and put it in a jar, then look at it all at the end of the year. Here's what I wrote down:

1. I debuted Mrs. Hawking at Arisia 2015.
2. I got an audience of 135 people in a difficult timeslot for Mrs. Hawking at Arisia 2015.
3. I got Adonis into the top ten percent of the 2015 BlueCat Screenwriting Contest.
4. I got to put up Mrs. Hawking a second time at the Watch City Steampunk Festival 2015.
5. I got an audience of 136 people at the Watch City Steampunk Festival 2015.
6. I got Adonis requested for reading by a producer I pitched to.
7. I got hired to teach at Lesley University.
8. I got hired to teach at North Shore Community College.
9. I got Adonis requested for reading by a producer a second time.
10. I got Adonis requested for reading by a producer a third time.
11. I completed 31 Plays in 31 Days for the fourth time.
12. I finished writing Base Instruments, completing the first Mrs. Hawking trilogy.
13. My face is clearer than it's been in years.
14. I got into the best and most beautiful shape of my life.
15. I helped launch Game Wrap Magazine and contributed content to it.
16. I got Mrs. Hawking and Vivat Regina accepted for performance at Arisia 2016.
17. Most of the Mrs. Hawking cast wanted to come back for the Arisia 2016 production.
18. Some friends stepped up with interest to be in Mrs. Hawking and Vivat Regina.
19. I made more money this year than I ever have in the past with my new jobs.
20. A producer liked my Adonis script and recommended it to a company that might want to make it.
21. I got a good evaluation of my teaching for my first semester at Lesley.
22. Bernie successfully defended his thesis and earned his doctorate.
23. I got Adonis requested for reading by a producer for a fourth time.

I thought this would be a good exercise for me as a way to focus on gratitude and positivity. And there's some real successes in this. This was a good year for me. I need to focus on how far I've come, because it will help me believe in myself for how far I need to go.
