a learning curve

Time for Change

Well, its coming up to that time of year again where most of us get the idea in our heads that its a good idea to make a change in our lives, myself included. Looking back over the year, on the surface, I am struggling to see the changes that I have made, changes that I told myself I would implement this time last year. However, looking a little bit closer I see the subtle improvements. One of the things I promised myself was to stop being so hard on myself, so what if the ironing didn’t get done today because I didn’t have the energy to stand long enough to do it, so what if today is a day when the fog in my brapin is so dense that I’m reading the same sentence over and over again, yet not realising the meaning of the words? Does it really matter for today? Not really, but it is still something I am struggling with, and I know this one particular change is something I must work harder at, simply because I am wasting too much energy worrying about jot getting things right, not having the energy to do more, and losing sleep because my mind is worrying about things I can’t quite grasp.

This year I was diagnosed with this Hashimotos autoimmune hypothyroidism, and it has taken me a year to improve, but I feel I am getting there, at the moment.
I need to realise, that the things I can’t get done today are not because I am being lazy, or disorganised, but simply because my body is under attack and it has to fight this battle before getting on with ordinary, everyday things. I have to realise that when my mind is clearer and I have a bit more energy, that I need to make tick lists for things that normally happen without me thinking about them, like switching the work phones onto the night message at the end of the day. This is my year to relax, maybe affect a change of diet to see if that improves my condition at all, but most of all, to be more lenient with myself.

What are your plans for yourself this coming new year?
