Tell us a valuable life lesson you learned in 2018:
“Don’t worry about whether you like it or don’t like it. Just do it, and your life will blossom.”
Quote a song lyric that sums up your year:
We are your conscience.
We thought we’d tell you,
you’ve been sleepwalking
through most of your days.
Your eyes are open,
Your body’s moving,
Your lips are speaking,
But you’re far from awake.
(Cloud Cult – Sleepwalker)
