Every new year I start looking at what I want to achieve for the new year. What do I want out of 2020 that I didn't get out of 2019, or what did I do last year that I want to do better this year.
This year for me, is to focus on me. Now that might sound a bit selfish or a bit uppity, but last year I found myself worrying about what everyone around me was doing and comparing myself to them. Always caring about what people thought of me, was I doing things how they wanted me to do them. Was I right was I wrong? This always left me feeling negative toward myself, so this year, I'm going to try and not do that. But focus more on the positives and know that nobody is perfect (because that would be boring right).
I also want to look after myself better, eat right and exercise right but at the same time understand that I may fall over but know I can always get back up and still feel proud.
Spending more time with family especially with my parents as my Dad is very sick right now, and I don't know how long he has. Life is too short and I don't want to feel regret about how I didn't visit him enough or didn't tell him I loved him more. He maybe around for quite a long time (which I hope for with all my heart, he's a fighter) but know that he might not.
I want to experience new things and get out of my comfort zone. I get anxious alot, so simple things like going shopping or going to a restaurant really stress me out but need to do them more often so I can cope better.
Last year I also didn't spend as much time on here as I would have liked, so would like to change that this year. I want to do more reviews, as I have a ton to catch up on. I have written two already, so a great start already woop woop.
Sorry for the really long winded post, but would really love to hear what your aspirations are for this year xx
- embrace stress and use it to fuel me rather than hurt me
- let things go and not get riled up over situations I can't control or other peoples crap
- work life balance
- continue to focus on what makes me happiest
2019 was an awful year for me, and I’m tired of being bullied, walked over, belittled and made to feel like I’m not good enough, no matter how hard I try, and constantly being targeted for no apparent reason by certain persons in particular.
I’m not mad, I’m not upset, I’m just done. Done with letting people make me feel awful when I try to help them, done with people who act like they care about me in front of others, but when it’s one-on-one they’re a completely different person who doesn’t really give a toss, and I’m done with bullies, narcissists and people who cause me to have sleepless nights. I’m choosing to ignore, walk away from or cut off those people as best I can and however I can.
-keep everyone in the house alive (pets included)
-stop being a doormat, especially when it comes to the small one
-enjoy the small one even when shes being a tit
-stop taking on others problems and giving into family/friend drama, because as my eggman says "they dont matter, their opinions dont matter, nobody matters but you and your family"
Lets come back in a year and see how well we've done hahaha
My favourite saying is 'Those that mind, don't matter and those that don't mind, matter'. The latter are the ones that love you for who you are. Those other people that belittle and bully you are the ones that don't deserve to have you in their lives, and if you can get rid of them or at least distance yourself from them, then you are already heading in the right direction.
Not sure if we're friends on Facebook, but friend me if you want to talk xx
Thanks for the offer, but I have been talking to someone and I’m feeling 90% better than I did 2 months ago. It took a good number of weeks to claw my way out of the dark emotional pit that I’d fallen into. It’s really hard when to distance someone hurtful when it’s a parent/family member and they don’t see anything wrong with what they’re saying or doing. I’m just trying my best for it to be like water off a duck’s back and to remember that their opinion doesn’t really matter and it won’t make any difference in what goes on in my life.
I’m finding that daily walks or yoga, plus meditation does help me keep a more positive mindset.
Also we want to eventually try for another baby so I want my mind and body to both be in a good place.
Everything else I am happy with, I removed a lot of toxic people from my life a while ago which was such a good thing. No drama, just how I like it :-)
hope you feel wonderful tomorrow ( but remember that it's okay if you don't, it will come)
I'm so glad I started this thread as our BR family is just wonderful. Everyone needs a safe place to come to when they are going through rough times and I feel that there is so much support and love for one another on here.
This gives me so many warm fuzzies xx
I do a 'pick three' activity if I'm overwhelmed with sad. I just pick categories and list three things that made me smile, 3 I'm grateful for, 3 I'm proud of etc until I've calmed down enough to start to work through what's upset me xx
- Start saying No more . All last year I was always saying yes to everyone.
- Balancing Time with Work, Family and Friends.
-Loose 10kg I put on .
-Declutter my entire house before I move into my first house that I buy .
That's just a shortlist of some of the main things I'd like to do this year .
