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!!):
- 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)
- 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.
- 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!
