Do you make “Resolutions” for yourself? What are those? Majority of us aren’t even going to try this year, after the s*it storm of 2020 we just want a clean slate. I know we will get there, but unfortunatly it will take time.
I’ve learned to just make goals. It’s been super helpful for me because honestly it’s help show me how to priorities parts of my life. Now that we are in 2021 (yes, aware of what is going on…but let’s move forward) and we still have time to make things better for everyone. It is time to write down your goals. I want everyone to sit back and think about what those really are. What do you want to do? How do you want to do it? What do you want your final outcome to be after you’ve accomplished these goals?
I’ve got a few. I think now that I’m turning 40 this year, I am going to have to reset my priorities for not just myself (mentally, spiritually, physically), my foods, and also I think, no TRULY my love life. I often wonder about that part of my life the most and honestly I usually let my lack of “Love” undermine my daily life, and overall life accomplishments that I’ve worked hard for. I think I am going to try to work on not being so dismissive of all that I’ve done, and all that I will do. I really need to stop doing that.
This morning on my way to work I heard a Bible verse as the “Good Word of the Day”, it basically said:
“Bad news won’t bother them (because) they have decided to trust the LORD.” CEV
This verse is a great reminder that I have to SERIOUSLY STOP everything I am doing to myself mentally, emotionally, spiritually and just hand it all over to God. Believe me this is a daily struggle, but I still have faith that no matter what I deal with on a daily basis I know that God will get me through it, especially with being okay by putting my “love” life on the far back burner and not having any regrets.
With spending parts of my holiday’s alone and not doing a lot, it just shows me that I am going to be okay. I need my mental health to be okay navigating my life alone, but in reality I’m not that alone. I’ve got my family, a few friends, and really my overweight fat cat Oscar. I know now my goal for 2021 is to just start enjoying my life more, so much more. Will I continue to beat myself up? Of course, I’m human. I make mistakes, but that does not mean I’m not going to stop my life or myself from progressing forward and being thankful for all those who are with me, and supported me.
Let me know what you guys think. I know this will be something I will work on even as I am possibly working two jobs and managing school full time.
