Goals for your new year..... what are your goals for 2017?
« on: December 07, 2016, 08:44:37 AM »
Okay, what is you biggie (or biggies) for the new year?

Mine are: F

1. Finish my weight loss goals (I lost 50 pounds this year) of sensible weight loss.
2. Start weight lifting.
3. Buy new home recording equipment, specifically ProTools and a new 8g laptop to put it on.

So, what are yours?

1. to be separated from pd, if not divorced
2. to go on vacation and not be the weird married woman who is on vacation alone.  I will be the happy, confident, separated woman!
3. to have friends over, maybe even a party.
4. to clear some major clutter and live in a tranquil home.

To work my small business to grow more.

To gain at least 10 pounds. When all the FOO stuff climaxed, I lost about 8 pounds that I couldn't afford. Last time I weighed it was slightly under 100. Ugh.

To avoid, forevermore, ALL Pd people.

1.  Accept I could not have changed my expds behaviors
2. Rise above the emotional damage and be the person I am comfortable being.
3. Be willing to put myself out there to date and not believe the world is full of pds.
4.  Build up my self esteem.
5.  Feel that it's ok not to have that "everything's ok" face on when everything is not ok,  Don't have to wear a mask anymore....it's tiring.

Congrats on the weight loss!

For me:

-Improved self-care in all areas (if weight loss results, great, as I've got some to lose also)
-Successfully complete coursework & certification in my new career field
-Land a good job in my new career field
-Declutter
-Have more FUN. Socialize more. Hoping leaving an emotionally draining job will restore my desire to connect
-Start to learn about investing

-ITN-

Go on a vacation by myself.  I'm thinking Disney World.

Embrace the Serenity Prayer.  Escape the insanity of the FOG.

Start building a financial nest egg.

Go to college part-time while keeping my job.  Sadly, I did not register in time to start next month.  Come Spring, however, I will start hitting the books.

Actually finish the massive project that has been handed to me at my place of employment.

Stop drinking energy drinks.  I gave up liquor.  Might as well give up another bad habit.

Actually start using the YMCA membership I have been paying for over the last year.

Great thread.

1. Lose last bit of weight to target. about 11 pounds.

2. My face match how I am feeling, not put on a fake smile to placate PD hub.

3. Walk more. 30 mins a day would be good.

4. Keep practising my Out of the FOG skills.

5. Arrange medical support for sick PD hubby. I took action on this today. Made the first appointment to get the ball rolling. Hurray. At present it is all shunted onto my shoulders. I want it in right place.

6. Like myself. 😀

it's around that time of year where everyone is making new years resolutions, most don't stick to them, but i'm curious as to what mental health goals everyone has.

my goals are to be more social with my peers and to work harder in family therapy.

I just finished reading Complex PTSD by Pete Walker.

In the back of the book he has several lists.

I selected items from one of the lists for my New Years Resolutions.  Seems like a lot but I believe they all sort of dovetail in generally healing.

1.  I want to make plenty of rook for beauty and nature in my life.
2.  I want full emotional expression with balance of laughter and tears.
3.  I want God's love, grace, and blessing.
4.  I want to increase my capacity to play and have fun.
5.  I want to learn to be the best possible friend to myself.

We just merged these two goal threads for 2017 so we could all make goals together.  :yeahthat:
Pray for the dead and fight like hell for the living.

When we have the courage to do what we need to do, we unleash mighty forces that come to our aid.

If I get a refund when filing my income taxes this spring, I would like to take a vacation with my children.  They have been through such tribulant times the last few years.  They have never seen the ocean. I want to see them smile, laugh, and be so excited to get on a plane.  Memory making is priceless.  I'm already in mega legal debt from when my nightmare started.    I just hope to find a good vacation deal.
