Same here Jimmy!
Do you feel you’re in the verge of loosing it?
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
I would like to complete my running goal and alleviate some of this emotional baggage- go into 2019 lighter.
What do you plan doing so you can alleviate some of your emotional baggage?
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.
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).
If you keep practicing what helped you so far, I’m sure you’ll get better by the end of this year. 🙂
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~

Oddly enough, I also started my blog when I was around 40. Maybe we should propose a “Question of the day” on the subject. Or was one already there?
A question of the day about turning 40? I think that’s a great idea!! DM? What do you think ?
That would be interesting. How do you think it should sound like?
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! 🙂
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.
If you start knowing them, I’m sure you’ll be able to execute care properly because it can be more personal 🙂
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.
What triggered that?
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
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,?
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.
A fit body !
What daily habit do you have to help you with that?
Going to gym and diet control
I’d like to finish the year without pending issues. I have more than I can feel comfortable about at this moment. And the clock is ticking…
What would happen if you’ll still have pending issues when the year ends?
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 🙂
To get my driver’s license
How do you find driving so far?
Awesome, i love it 😁 i just hope i don’t make any stupid mistakes when the test comes by 🙃
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.
I’m sorry to hear that! What health issues do you face?
I’m sorry but I kind of don’t want to discuss my health issues, other than they are both mental and physical.
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!
Awesome attitude! If you develop any tips and tricks, feel free to share them with us! 😀
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”.
Have you started to search?
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.
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!
It seems that you had an amazing year! I’m sure next one will be even better! 🙂
I would like to promise myself to make 2019 WAY better than 2018…
Is there anything that stops you from doing the promise? 😀
To have prepared myself for Christmas
What do you love the most about Christmas?
Catching up with family and friends
Being present when the year ends, on top of the grass, not under it… 🙂
“Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened.”
― Dr. Seuss
I’m sure you’ll be here many years from now. We need your powerful insights and your quotes 😀
I’d like to accomplish re-writing at least one more book and setting a release date, plus buying a cover for it. I’d also like to finish two paintings and at least one more cat blanket.
That sounds like an awesome plan!
Change the job 🙂
Have you started the job hunting?
Yep, 2 months ago already 😊
And how it goes so far?
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 🙂
That’s a job worth looking for 🙂 And it’s the only kind of job we need, don’t you think?
I fully agree with you 🙂
Be in my own apartment
How close are you to getting there?
I’ve got the money, I’ve improved my credit score, I’ve put myself on several waiting lists, and I’m packed and ready to go.
I’d like to get a start on the idea I had for a novel. Been battling writer’s block for a while.
You don’t know how to start or you’ve already started but you don;t know how to continue?
I’ve been grieving a loss and I’d like to move on and enjoy the memories.
I’m so sorry for your loss… I’m sure you will because I know you’re strong. You just need your time to grief.
I wish you all the best in this
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.
If they love you, I’m sure it will be ok
I hope so
