Real talk for a second, I’ve been struggling with my mental health the last… year. I haven’t been avoiding addressing it. I’m aware of it. Blah-blah. Absolutely zero to be worried about with me on this one. In fact, you should be more concerned at yourself if you think it’s a big deal to talk about mental health because one in four of you are affected in some way by a mental health disorder. Basically, all the cool kids have ishes whether or not they want admit it. (Thank you for joining me on my mental health soapbox. Feel free to visit anytime.)
My point is that I’ve had to be overly aware of my feelings, emotions, what have you and I’ve also been practicing the HELL out of the very best thing I’ve ever learned in cognitive behavioral therapy: OPPOSITION ACTION. And it’s only because of my opposite action skillz and mental health awareness that I’ve been able to accomplish anything on this list since the last time I updated it in I don’t even know how long and I’m too lazy to go back and look, so if you’re dying to know, be my guest.
For those new to my world here. back on March 4, 2016, I made a list of 101 things I wanted to complete in 1001 days, which is December 1, 2018. I’m getting down to about a
year to complete all these things. No pressure.
- #13: Build up wendyberry.com for something. Ohhhh, I sure did. It gets about as much attention as this blog, but it’s there and it’s allll about HR, leadership, the working world, all that jazz that I like to geek out about.
- #34: Find a new vet for June. We’re sticking to the old one. Cheated, but done.
- #88: See the Lynx play somewhere other than the Target Center. Technically, I saw them play in two different places: Xcel Center and Williams Arena.
66% of my completions for the last few months have been frauds, you guys, and I don’t even care.
I’m pretty checked out of 2017. I’m glad Baby E to the B won’t be born this year because it’s just been a crapfest since that giant orange bigmouthed butthole mouth took office. I know 2018 won’t fix it all, but it gives me some encouragement that we’ve got one year down of that turd “leading” the country.
