I should be honest and say that my main goal for this month is to live through it. This is the most stressful time of year for me. After many years of seemingly (actually) disappointing some members of my family no matter what I bought, I find that the holiday can be excruciating. As the month goes on, my stress levels rise, and I get more and more anxious regarding the gifts that I’ve bought. I over-think everything and cause myself much more stress than is healthy. Needless to say, I’m going to try to nip this whole thing in the bud this year, and refuse to over-think it. After all, the people whom I’m referring to are adults, and their behavior is immature, to say the least.
I’m still working on finding affordable health care, and since the exchanges close on the 15th, this is my first priority. I would really appreciate being able to go for an eye exam this year – I just know that I need a new prescription. Also, after going for a year hoping that nothing terrible happened health-wise, I’d really like to at least know that I’ve got “good” insurance this year (“good” insurance is a relative term, don’t you think)?
Another goal is to decide what did and did not work for me over the last year, and figure out some plans on how to better achieve my goals for the coming year. Also, further organization has to be done, so there will be more “stuff” taken to the swap-shop at the dump.
