Relationships: I’ve learned that it’s better to stick with who you know than to chase the excitement of strangers. It’s easier now that my brain is leaving me alone so that I can make more rational decisions.
Work: I can get up and work for at least four to five hours a day. It’s a goal. I can even work a few days in a row without getting sick.
Success: I’m reaching goals and actually feeling a small sense of accomplishment. I’ve never felt prolonged excitement over my writing success.
Family: I’ve become an asset instead of a burden to my family. This took eight years of hard work.
Thinking: I can choose thoughts instead of constantly having to fight the bipolar thoughts.
Money: I think before I spend.

All of these are a work in progress. I do well if I can reach a few of these at a time!
