It’s that time when I create my list of resolutions proposed accomplishments. I say proposed accomplishments instead of resolutions because I feel saying resolutions only sets you up for failure. You say you’re going to do these big, scary, audacious goals and then by Feb. you realized you haven’t achieved anything. If I say proposed accomplishments, it means I propose to accomplish a few things. If I do them, great! If not, then at least I tried. I also don’t write a ridiculous amount of goals for each year. A few simple ones that I would like to do for myself and go from there. So, here it is, I bring to you my list of Proposed Accomplishments for 2017.

*If* I get the job at DHL, I hope to have a very successful year. I want to work hard and prove to not only myself, my family, but everyone that I am stabilized and capable of holding down a job and not only hold it down but exceed expectations to do exceptionally well. (My interview is on the 3rd of January, so I’ll find out soon enough.) I want to work hard and show off my new found ‘normalcy’ that I’ve achieved. I want to show everyone who doubted me going back. I want to prove to myself that I’m capable of holding a job and succeeding in everything that I set out to do. Whether that’s getting through the four-week training class successfully, all the way up to receiving perfect QA’s again. This seems like a pretty audacious goal but I’m confident that as long as my stability is there, I can achieve this goal and show everyone what I’m capable of.

Figure out a weight loss plan and stick with it. I know last year I skipped the whole “Lose weight” goal and wanted to fall in love with myself instead. For the most part, I did that. Now, I want to focus on loving myself as who I am and during the journey of losing weight. I came up with an 8-step plan to lose the weight this time around. I’m looking forward to putting forth the effort in achieving this goal. I should actually change this goal to read: Figure out why the hell I’m NOT losing any weight no matter what effort I put forth and lose the weight! Since I’ve tried and tried again to lose the weight and for whatever reason, it will NOT come off. I am off Mirena so I’m hoping the weight gain from that will go away.

Blog More. I want to be more active with my blog and find more blogging friends. I’ve already started to look for some more readers on my site. So, just a matter of building my friend circle and actively writing. This should be pretty easy to overcome and achieve.

Try to do a Project 52 with Project Life??? This is a big ‘question mark’ because I’m unsure I’m capable of even taking enough pictures each week to come up with one page per week for the entire year. I’d like to give it a try, though. I’ve done a lot with the Project Life App the past few months and Project 52 sounds like it would be fun to try. So this is a big MAYBE.

Continue stability path. Simple, keep taking my meds. Figure out if I even need my meds anymore. Stay stable. Go to my pdoc appointments. Continue NORMAL.

Continue each day trying your best. I want to continue to do exactly what my planner says: Today is a new day, do something great. I want to try to the best of my ability each and every day. Sure, some days will be better than others, but regardless I want to work towards being the best ME I can be.

Plan each day. This is on my list every single year. Since I’ve become a planner girl, I’ve always added “Plan every day”, so this year is no different. I want to continue documenting my life, on paper, in my planner as a reference to be able to look back and see what I’ve done. This one should be very easy.

Try to only worry about TODAY. This one is going to be INCREDIBLY hard for me but I’m going to try to do my best to do what I can to make this one happen. I worry too much about tomorrow and the next day/week/month/year. I need to start worrying about the NOW and not so much the future.

“The past is over. The future has not come. Today is the now. You should only worry about the now.” – Me

I’m going to do my best to try not to worry so much about the future. Big stuff, sure, I’ll worry about it. But little stuff, not so much. This one is going to be incredibly hard for me to do but I’m going to try my best to do it.

That’s all I have for my accomplishments for this year. I’d like to do those items and work towards being the best me I can be. I’ll check back in December 2017 and let you know how I did.
