Every blogger seems compelled to write something about the New Year, but I really don’t see the big deal about New Year’s Eve. I’ve always been like this, even when I was healthy and now that I’m sick, my opinion hasn’t changed. New Year’s Eve is a made up holiday, so that we can go out and party and have fun and wake up exhausted the next day. Except now, I wake up exhausted every day and I don’t have the excuse of staying out too late or drinking too much. The best part of New Year’s is that it’s a day where I know I won’t have to drag myself to a doctor’s appointment.
I have tried to come up with New Year’s resolutions but really, my body is not my own, so my resolutions mainly have to be what I can change mentally. I would love to say I’ll go to the gym more or walk an extra mile a day, but these are impossible resolutions, that would set me up as a complete failure on day 1.
So my resolutions are:
- To surround myself with less toxic people
- To meditate each day and to continue practicing an Attitude of Gratitude
- To connect more with people in my life, even if it’s only with an email or quick text
- To continue my positive attitude, even when my fatigue is overwhelming and my pain is unbearable
I wish you all a Happy, Peaceful and Pain free 2014!!
