Goals and stuffs

Happy Friday folks!

Does it seem like this week draaaaaaged on forever and ever? What’s up with that?

I’ve been working on my list of goals that I want to get out of therapy. I’m still working on that list of 15 things I like about myself – I know several of you gave me ideas and I appreciate that, but if I’m being honest it’s HARD coming up with 15 things that I like about myself. So far I have six. Six! That’s a long way from fifteen, but I still have a few days to think about it.

Anyway, here are my 3 goals for therapy (and why is it every time I type “therapy” I actually type “thereapy”??????? Stop it fingers!!):

  1. Learn how to deal with my emotions without using food. (are you surprised that’s one of my goals? I know you are shocked that I have food issues. I hide it so well here on my blog)
  2. Learn how to deal with stress without wanting to HULKSMASH everything in sight. Seriously, The Incredible Hulk has nothing on me when I get agitated.
  3. Learn how to be more assertive/expressive in regards to my needs. This has to do with not stuffing things down, and asking for help.

We are going to talk about these next Wednesday when I go for my next appointment and she might suggest a couple more for me.

In other news, I’ve made a nice dent in my Christmas shopping. I put dinner in the crockpot this morning, so I might do some more shopping after work today since I don’t have to worry about fixing dinner tonight. I’m ready to get it all done so I can enjoy the rest of the holiday season! Can I just take a moment here and say a hearty THANK YOU  to online shopping? Because if it weren’t for the wonderful technology that is the internet, I’d be so screwed right now as far as shopping goes. I LOVE YOU INTERNET!!! YOU COMPLETE ME!!

I hope you all have a good weekend  – stay cozy, my friends!

  1. That’s funny you said about the week dragging on. I thought last night that it had been a nice long week.

    Online shopping = love. Well, I guess that isn’t exactly a good equation, but you know what I mean.

    Crockpot cooking = love. Yep, I think this one is true!

  2. Yes, online shopping for gifts has been a gift. Amazon Prime has been an extra bonus.

    It’s hard coming up with our own things we like about ourselves. I think I’d have a hard time with my own list.

  3. throwing it out there – don’t know if it applies to you – in the end, one of my biggest issues was boundaries. That work has been in the past two years. That is paying off a zillion fold as it was impacting all areas of my life.
