And now. . It's time to plan for a future that I know I have.




Since I have been in a good place for quite some time now, 5 months to be exact. I have come to realize that my future is possible and holds many opportunities. For the longest time I couldn't see past the moment. I got stuck on things too easily; a look, a comment, a fleeting sign. Post diagnosis and medication, I couldn't see past a few months, always premeditating my downturn. All of a sudden its like a light going on in my head, I DO have a future to plan for and this is where it starts. Maybe I'm getting ahead of myself, then again, maybe I'm right on track.

Lets set some bloody goals!

Goals


Self Care:
                  Biweekly psychotherapist appointments.
                  Three monthly psychiatrist appointments. (Can I just mention that this is a big time achieved goal for me, there was a time when I HAD to see my psychiatrist at least once a week, I was a walking mess.)
                  Develop a regular sleep/ wake routine
                  Encourage a healthy diet
                  Exercise regularly
                  Relaxation; yoga, , massage, a night on the sofa, hot tub. . etc

Education & Work:
                  Continue with Psychology & Writing degree
                  Continue with part time hospitality job
                  Embark on a part time bookkeeping certificate
                  Explore bookkeeping career options and potentially change paths
               
Leisure:    
                  Read one new book per month
                  Write at least one new post per month
                  Travel to a new destination at least once per year
                  Socialize at every opportunity
                  Create something


Again, its such a nice feeling to WANT to plan for my future. In light of many a depressive episode this feels like a whole new sense of purpose.

I think these are some legit, achievable goals. I am excited and looking forward to getting to work - As they say, dreams don't work unless you do!
