Structure

Reverb10: Try. What do you want to try next year? Is there something you wanted to try in 2010? What happened when you did / didn’t go for it? (Author: Kaileen Elise)

In 2011 I want to try having a disciplined, structured life.  My health is improving dramatically because I’m doing a better job scheduling my meals.  That success tells me that more structure is going to beneficial, if not essential to meeting my goals.

Essentially, I want taking excellent care of me to be automatic.  I want to have a system in place that makes self-care easier than neglect.  Once my body is well cared for I think I’ll have more room in my life for creative pursuits like knitting, writing, and baking.  Taking care of me will give me the resources to be a better friend and a better team-member.  I’d like to go back to school next fall, but there’s no way I can do that if I’m not taking excellent care of myself.

I have to come first in 2011.  I sometimes forget that my first responsibility is to myself and that I cannot give anything to anyone that I have not already given myself.  I need to acknowledge and pursue what I need.
