New Year's Resolutions

Every year, I always set myself difficult NYRs that I never manage to fulfil for some reason or another. It's usually something like losing 35kg/80lbs off my weight within months, but I never do it.

So, this year I've set myself two relatively simple ones that I think I'll be able to achieve by the end of the year, as long as I keep reminding myself. Hell, I might write them on my white board that's in my room so I never forget.

Number one: To learn to accept and respect my limits with regards to my physical health.

Number two: To know my worth and never settle for anything less.

What ones have you set?

Happy New Year, my lovelies!

New Year’s Resolution

I don’t normally do the whole New Year’s Resolution thing - I never stick to them. I always set goals that are next to impossible to achieve.

So this year I decided to set a fairly easy one.

My new year’s resolution was to respect the limits of my body. To take note when I’m getting close to those limits, to know when enough is enough, and intervene before things get too bad. Which I know is a good thing… But today I was visiting my sister and my little nephew (he is the light of my life)… And I’ve had to come home early because of my pain and exhaustion. And I feel like utter SHIT. I hate all these limitations. I feel useless and ashamed. I’m miserable.

This last year was so hard that looking back I can see how badly my health has declined, and how fast. There seems little point to me in making any #NewYear resolutions except for #Surviving

Crazy year

So this past year was crazy. I started it being in a group home that I eventually got kicked out of because I was in the hospital too much. I then got placed into a temporary respite house (which I was in the hospital again for the majority of the time that I was allowed to be there). I finally got to the point where I wanted a stable place to live in again and asked my dad if I could move in with him and being a good father he naturally said of course I could. The first technical month of being in his care again I spent in the hospital again. But since the beginning of may I've not had a hospital stay (other than ER visits). I'm extremely proud of myself. With my mental health problems I used to be extremely unstable but since living with my dad again I've managed to become stable.
Last year my new years resolution was to make it a year without any hospitalizations. I ended up ruining that fairly fast but in the end I was able to make it almost 8 months without any hospitalizations (January 2nd will make 8 months)!!! Even though the year started off bad it ended really well.
Let's hope for a great new year for everyone!!!
