I’ve ruminated about some of my issues for quite some time. But, lately, I’ve had a full-scale attack from Hilda and it was not looking good for my mental outlook on life. But I know that the only way to combat the negativity is a plan of attack. In the past, I’ve written about some of my goals here and other places throughout my blog. But, yesterday, I narrowed my goals down to three things. They are the three things that I think encapsulate anything/everything I need to improve or change.
These three things are (as pinned to the top of my Twitter):
- My Spirituality.
- My Health.
- My Financial Status
I really believe all of my challenges and struggles in life can be narrowed down to these three matters. It’s obvious from my negative outlook and my mental health that my spiritual well-being is a major issue I need to address. So many things can be covered here, such as my relationships, my belief in a God (or a Goddess – or even more), my sobriety, my self-image and self-acceptance, as well as other issues. Obviously, my health is important and some of the things that I can address here are the care of my type 1 diabetes, my sobriety, a need to be more active and other things. And then there is my financial status – which, I think might be more of a subset of spirituality, but I think it is a huge challenge in my life that needs to be address on a level of its own. I realize it boils down to reducing expenses and increasing income, but that has been tough for sure.
I really don’t know what direction to go, or how I’ll accomplish this. Hell, it’s damn near vapid, because I talk about my issues so much. But this is important, it’s important to me to keep the focus on this. And it’s solution oriented, which is what I need. And maybe it’s just baby steps I take, but as long as I’m moving in the right direction, then I am progressing and that’s what I am after.
