First blog post of the New Year! It’s hard to believe that 2015 is over. The last day of the year was not a very good day in this household. My beloved dog Jäger had a partial bowel obstruction and had to have emergency surgery. He was able to come home that night thankfully and I didn’t get a whole lot of sleep. I’m so glad that he’s ok and didn’t have a full bowel obstruction or a perforated bowel. Now we’re just focusing on him healing and so far he seems to be doing well.
There are a few things I want to work on in 2016 for the New Year:
- Focus on what I can do, not on what I can’t.
- Be more active physically when I can.
- Get better at meditation
- Ask for help when I need it.
I think these are the three things that I’m really going to try and focus on in 2016. There’s so many other things that I what to do, like blog more, lose weight. Try to keep my house clean. But I really don’t want to over whelm myself with things to do. Life can be hard enough as it is. Which is why I always try to focus on what I can do. And still need to improve on.
Asking for help when I need it is another thing that I really need to work on. I always feel like I should be able to handle everything myself. I’m a pretty strong independent woman and I have a hard time with this. My fiance has also told me that I need to get better at asking for help so that I’m not so angry when I finally do. I have a bad habit of thinking that I can get everything done myself and I can’t always do that. At the Girls With Guts retreat in October we talked about how there’s nothing wrong with asking for help and I really need to remember that.
So here’s to a new year! I hope that everyone has a good one and wish you all the best.
