Noo Year rez check-in

Back on January 1, 2009, I made a list of things I wanted to do this year. I’m checking in today to see how far I’ve come.

This year, I will:
Become more of an advocate for Endometriosis awareness and humane treatment for those of us who suffer from it.

Put my life’s worth (1985 – present day) of diary entries about my chronic Endometriosis-related pain all in one place (this website!) (Well, I have a complete upload from 2006 onwards, but at least it’s all in one place now. I’m still putting up entries from further back when I have time).

Travel to the U.K. for the first time.

Buy Obtain my first ever kitchen table (our neighbor gave it to us yesterday!)

  • Finally stop consuming alcoholic beverages because I know it will kill me based upon the medical condition that I have, and it’s time I started loving my innards every minute of every day instead of cursing myself for an illness I was born with
  • Learn and practice yoga
  • Live my first year of many decades under the new title of WIFE to my superhero (it’s not been a full year yet ;)
  • Re-read every book I have on Tibetan Buddhism, and seek out more, because that more than any other belief system still really speaks to me 14 years after I found it
  • Begin pardoning people who have incurred my wrath in years past (I’m not talking about small tiffs here, I’m talking full on silent treatment for years or decades) (still working on that, making surreptitious overtones)
  • Generally start to practice true forgiveness on a grand scale

Heh, I didn’t realise I was going in order til I checked back in on my list. Weird. Level of difficulty was pre-arranged, I guess. ;)

    Good job so far! My last 6 months have been so painful that I feel like I got nothing done. 6 months of life gone, just like that. Keep up the good work. One step at a time!
