Ringing in the New Year

Monday, January 05, 2009

I took a lil break from life the last part of December. Clear my head, rest up, veg out a little. I feel great.

'08 was a rough year. But I made it through. '09 can only go up (knock on wood). I ended the year pretty ok. A little stressed, way broke, but happy. I've got an unexpected new man in my life. He's such a blessing. I'm still employed. My SAD is in check. I haven't had any depressive episodes in a while. I am definitely counting my blessings.

I refuse to make resolutions. I never keep them. And I so do not need that extra stress. I know how I am. But I do have goals. Quit cancelling my therapy sessions, for one. Yeah, yeah I know. Bad me. I also have to make an appointment to see my pdoc...that was supposed to happen in October. Oops. And perhaps this year I shall work through my terror of doctors. Or not...we'll see.

But I hope the year brings light. Or something close to it. And the same for everyone else!

    I agree with not needed to add any extra stress as far as resolutions. A dream without a plan is just a wish and all that-
    Being here in the SP world, goals are much better.
    I'm glad you took a bgreak and chilled. I used to get very overwhelmed with this site. Im happy you found a new man. Envious, but happy. lol
    I have made real progress with my depression lately. This is the first year I went the whole holiday without having a single manic episode. I blog about my fights just about every day.
    Happy New Year!

    Great Blog! It sounds like you have put your priorities in order and have things somewhat under control, or at least as much as any of us can. I don't do new year's resolutions either. However, I do set short term goals that I know I can do.
    My short term goal is to eliminate 2 more pounds this month. Will need your support to do it and appreciate you posting to our team. You are awesome!!!
