    "Hold the guitar and sit at the piano"
    That's exactly the same theory that a novelist gave re: writing. "Ass in chair". As in, if you're sitting in front of your computer, there's the POTENTIAL that you'll actually write something. Just one of many things I have to start pushing myself on again.

    I'm starting my first nursing job in January so my goals are pretty focused on that such as:
    1) Be a good advocate for myself
    2) Seek out & develop supportive nurse friendships in the workplace
    3) Challenge myself daily to be out of comfort zone

    My other goals include practicing music more, writing, and developing deeper friendships!

    1) get pregnant.

    2) If 1 doesn't happen, then cross train to a new area in the organization I work for, either ER, urgent care, or postpartum.

    3) lose a bit of weight by eating out less and being more active. Yesterday it was -14 degrees out those so all I wanted to do was curl up with a fuzzy blanket and a pizza so not sure how that's going to go.

    Wow! I'd like to do that, too.

    To leave my current job which I HATE ( I have job interviews lined up already).

    To finally decide if I'm going back to school and advance my nursing career or start a business degree (I'm leaning very much towards the business degree).

    To work on my mental health. My current role is very stressful and I am not coping well at all. I don't eat, I can't sleep, I'm miserable. Part of that is my daily anxiety being kicked into overdrive and part of that is a crappy job.

    To work with my family to make better healthier choices. We are cutting out pop (which is huge for me - diet coke is a weakness of mine), to make an effort to get to the gym, and to have fun with my kids and hubby.
