      1. I lost it long ago 😁 sanity depends on perspective. Father of three, husband, son brother etc. Just the normal things that go through your mind as you work hard to keep everything on point and progressive

      1. Well my blog is one avenue that is helpful to process things. Other writing that I am doing about my life. I read daily meditations and journal daily. I listen to inspirational books and podcasts. I play and exercise and laugh and socialize. I am just really aiming at staying consistent with self care.

  1. A better grasp on my anxiety and to know when I need to help myself, or ask someone. I’m a little better now (guided meditation every day so far and a bit of online therapy).

  2. This is the year that I turned 40.

    Turning 40 was a huge issue for me, because I felt that even though I have a solid career where I help people, I’m the mother of five wonderful children, and I have a great husband who loves me, I still haven’t done anything that was just mine. Being a working mother and also almost a full-time stay-at-home mom it makes it very hard to find time for me. I want to remember who I really am and what is important to me outside of my core values of my family, my husband, my home and Friends.

    So, I jumped in with both feet and started my blog, heymomnowwhat.com. By the end of this year, I hope to find my voice and reach out beyond my comfort zone. I want to reach out to people and shake some common sense back into their world. I want to remind people that they know what they need and they know what they should do, and that it is within their control to make themselves happy.

    By the end of this year, I want to be well on my way to accomplishing something that is bigger than me. ~Allie~

      1. A question of the day about turning 40? I think that’s a great idea!! DM? What do you think ?

    1. That’s just awesome! I know that some people don’t consciously know what they need and want so maybe we can help with that too! 🙂

  3. Doing my new job comfortably. Having become a CNA and just starring a job at a long term facility, I have anxieties about doing my job properly. I love taking care of people but it’s different when it’s a loved one and not a stranger(strangers have rules and regulations attached with them and trying to remember it all is a little scary😖). So, by the end of this year, I want to know my residents and execute care properly.

  4. I would like to work on my mental health, especially my anxiety. Because of my contamination OCD I haven’t been able to eat out anywhere and I really miss that, so I’d like to just simply be able to go and have some food in a cafe without having a panic attack.

      1. Intense fear of food poisoning, I had it in June after eating out and I have emetophobia and ocd mostly based around contamination so it was really tough

      2. So now you’re afraid to get through the same situation and your emetophobia and ocd are present to keep you away from that food poisoning,?

      3. Yeah, whenever I have tried since to eat food that I didn’t prepare and make, especially if it’s in a cafe environment I have to run to the toilet and I end up having a panic attack.

      1. I will have unhappy holidays, basically. Maybe I will not get a bonus. Nothing serious, I guess. Or maybe my self esteem will go down a little… maybe not 🙂

  5. In reality, the things I want to accomplish can’t be done be the end of the year. So to set a realistic goal, I’m going to say try to stay alive. It is not as easy for some as it is for others and with my health I have been walking a very thing line.

  6. To stop procrastinating at work, to quit artificial sweeteners, and to start fasting intermittently as proposed by Dr Jason Fung. I’m going to ring in the new year right! No New Years resolutions for me! I’m starting in December!

  7. I’d like to find a (good) psychiatrist so I can take better care of my mental health. It would be so nice to start 2019 feeling more “normal”.

      1. I have not, but I do have a resource to use through my insurance. It’s just a matter of not procrastinating. I’ve had my share of bad psychologists/psychiatrists in the past, and that makes me nervous about finding a new one.

  8. The year 2018 has been very fulfilling so far. It was kind enough to have given me a chance and I lapped it up! My goals in terms of travel and physical/ spiritual health have been accomplished. I learnt how to write in Tamil( my mother tongue). I began writing. Read some classics in Hindi( one of my favorite languages). Found amazing people in WP. If I manage to finish ‘Of Human Bondage’ by W.S.Maugham and spare a little time to practice my Violin by the end of December, 2018 would be absolutely proud for spending time with me!

  9. Being present when the year ends, on top of the grass, not under it… 🙂

      1. Not bad, a few interviews already behind me. As there was no chemistry between me and the hiring managers I am still looking for an interesting position. I don’t want to take any job, I want an amazing one with amazing people 🙂

  10. I’ve been working on coming out to the people closest to me…next up is my parents which I want to do by the end of year! So nervous but I know that they love me so it should be okay.
