Another year has almost passed. Another year that we can add to the big book of memories that we will talk about or think about for the remaining time we have here on earth. I hate it that time goes by so fast these days. I am not supposed to be 41. My Mom is not supposed to be her age. I feel as though I just graduated about 5 years ago. The one thing that is so great about time flying by is that it makes it sooner that we will see those who have already passed on to Heaven. It has been 20 years since my brother passed away and it surely doesn’t feel like its been 20 years. But I look at it like that just makes it closer to the day I will be reunited with him. What a day that will be. I also think about meeting Abraham Lincoln, Leslie Neilson, Chris Farley, Mother Teresa, Mary Magdalene, Ronald and Nancy Reagan, Anne Frank and more than likely there are other people on my “Meet me when I get there” list.
There will be people who are now writing out their resolutions list of what they want to change in the upcoming year. I was never really a resolution kinda person only for the fact that many people never met their goals and so I figured why waste my time. I always had an issue of making goals for myself. Goals always scared me. I guess it was because other people failed to obtain their goals and I simply knew that I would not meet my goals. Now that I am 41, I have decided to write down a few things that I would like to accomplish throughout the upcoming year. I just finished my internship for my Master’s in Professional Counseling. I now have to get my clinical supervision hours so that I will get my NCC certification which will take about 2 years. So my main goal is to work on getting those hours.
A goal that I am wanting to work on this year is my self-discipline. I was really good at it until I got married and found that I didn’t have all the alone time that I had at one time. The refrigerator was then filled with things that I wouldn’t have chosen to put in there. My time at the gym kinda went down and I began falling into bad habits that I had once allowed myself to have. My buddy that I once worked out with married and moved (I miss her dearly). Then I moved and my other gym buddy lived too far away. I know that we are supposed to do things for ourselves but an accountability partner always makes things easier and more pleasurable. I really don’t have anyone now who can help me with accountability so it has been a struggle but I have decided to live that part of my life for myself. I’m gonna have to if I want to see some positive and healthier change in my life. Being diagnosed with Hashimoto hasn’t helped either but I am wanting to work through that to see if I can reverse it or simply alleviate some of the symptoms that I have that I never encountered until I started being more relaxed with my health. So, that is the main things I would like to work on: my clinical hours and my health. I do not have anything wrong except for Hashimoto but I don’t want anything else to add to the list. So I have to do something now and not wait until something goes wrong later.
I simply want to be more awesome than I was last year.
