I took the owl doodles and threw them into my “resolution” list. I wasn’t planning to make a list, but during my therapy session, my therapist urged me to at least pick a few things to work towards this year. After a bit of contemplation, I think the above is a decent amount of goals to strive towards this year.
Physically: I’d like to work on my health. My In laws are trying some diets for their own health care, but I’ve come to recognize that diets tend to set me off pretty badly. I get hangry when I’m hungry and when I end up falling off the wagon, breaking a diet tends to make me want to purge. More mindful eating. Better choices. Being more active.
SO and I are green belts now, so we’re going to focus on Uechi Ryu harder. And I’m jumping into Isshin Ryu as an actual student now. Instead of just observing my SO and his Sensei practicing. I’d like to get back into walking again and doing some weight lifting. I’m not getting any younger so I need to take care of myself. I’d like to try to do some yoga for my flexibility. Plus my stepdaughter expressed interest so it’s something we could try together.
Mentally and Spiritually: I’d like to do more art for myself. And writing some more. Writing for the blog. Writing letters to the important people in my life. Work more on DBT and other mental health care practices. Mental self-care.
Things I need to keep in mind for this year? Not being so hard on myself for a lot of aspects. And just because I don’t 100% keep up with a goal doesn’t mean it’s over or that I’ve failed. Anyone else got some resolutions for 2022?
