I first started this blog to document my journey with having a fructose malabsorption but as you can see things have definitely changed since then. I got diagnosed with Indeterminate Colitis two years ago and started blogging about my journey with Inflammatory Bowel Disease. I want to help raise awareness for IBD. But along the way I’ll also be posting about books and motorcycle stuff. I don’t always know what to blog about in regards to my IBD so having some other things to write about will be helpful.
Over the next six months I hope to start blogging more regularly about books, my IBD and about motorcycles.
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.
