Other writing that I am doing about my life. I read daily meditations and journal daily. I listen to inspirational books and podcasts. I play and exercise and laugh and socialize.

LikeLiked by 5 people Reply If you keep practicing what helped you so far, I’m sure you’ll get better by the end of this year. 🙂 LikeLiked by 1 person Reply This is the year that I turned 40. Turning 40 was a huge issue for me, because I felt that even though I have a solid career where I help people, I’m the mother of five wonderful children, and I have a great husband who loves me, I still haven’t done anything that was just mine. Being a working mother and also almost a full-time stay-at-home mom it makes it very hard to find time for me. I want to remember who I really am and what is important to me outside of my core values of my family, my husband, my home and Friends. So, I jumped in with both feet and started my blog, heymomnowwhat.com. By the end of this year, I hope to find my voice and reach out beyond my comfort zone. I want to reach out to people and shake some common sense back into their world. I want to remind people that they know what they need and they know what they should do, and that it is within their control to make themselves happy. By the end of this year, I want to be well on my way to accomplishing something that is bigger than me. ~Allie~ On Mon, Nov 19, 2018, 1:04 PM Pointless Overthinking DM posted: “What would you like to accomplish by the end of this year? ” > LikeLiked by 5 people Reply Oddly enough, I also started my blog when I was around 40. Maybe we should propose a “Question of the day” on the subject. Or was one already there? LikeLiked by 2 people Reply A question of the day about turning 40? I think that’s a great idea!! DM?

I know that some people don’t consciously know what they need and want so maybe we can help with that too! 🙂 LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Doing my new job comfortably. Having become a CNA and just starring a job at a long term facility, I have anxieties about doing my job properly. I love taking care of people but it’s different when it’s a loved one and not a stranger(strangers have rules and regulations attached with them and trying to remember it all is a little scary😖). So, by the end of this year, I want to know my residents and execute care properly. LikeLiked by 3 people Reply If you start knowing them, I’m sure you’ll be able to execute care properly because it can be more personal 🙂 LikeLiked by 2 people Reply I would like to work on my mental health, especially my anxiety. Because of my contamination OCD I haven’t been able to eat out anywhere and I really miss that, so I’d like to just simply be able to go and have some food in a cafe without having a panic attack.

It was kind enough to have given me a chance and I lapped it up! My goals in terms of travel and physical/ spiritual health have been accomplished. I learnt how to write in Tamil( my mother tongue). I began writing. Read some classics in Hindi( one of my favorite languages). Found amazing people in WP. If I manage to finish ‘Of Human Bondage’ by W.S.Maugham and spare a little time to practice my Violin by the end of December, 2018 would be absolutely proud for spending time with me!
