Work on my self confidence and esteem 
Say no

    I would like to

    - Eat less snacks
    - Drink less alcohol
    - Lose some weight
    - Do some home study 

    Sadly I am typing this while munching on pretzels with a glass of Jack Daniels and coke :D

    Just find it hard not to enjoy snacks / a drink at the end of the day as each day is quite a struggle and it’s nice to have a reward at the end of the day. Maybe need to think of something else to have instead.

    I always end up breaking them, so to save me from the guilt my new year resolution this year is not to have any. :*

    As an individual I stood alone.
    As a member of a group I did things.
    As part of a community I helped to create change!

    This is my only goal so far. 

    Maintain a level of fitness post baby. I have bought a postpartum exercise DVD and plan to do workouts at home and in a local gym as well. Additionally I will go for walks with baby during the summer and find a dance class too.

    I'm very much the same @Geoark
    I'd like to say my goal is to finish and start publishing this draft of my book, but it's been my goal for the last few years. :s  I probably will finish it, then doubt myself and re-write it again :D

    Start the year clean slate, take small steps and be kinder to myself ( We all tend to be very harsh on ourselves ). Change in habits, have 4 small meals instead of one.. 
    Hopefully this will be a better year ..
    Merry Christmas to All 🤗

    Go vegetarian
    Tell people to go away more ( using far more colourful language)
    Finally, defeat nicotine

    I'd like to push myself out of my comfort zone in 2020 (hopefully not fall out of bed!) I have a few ideas of what I would like to do, it's just actually doing it!

    I've got a couple more now.

    Applying for PIP for support because of the way my ASD affects me.

    Moving house. Going to the Preston area where I have some second cousins. I'm totally isolated here. Kirkham is an area I'm looking at. Gotta sell this first, aiming for on the market this spring.

    To be calmer and to embrace my disability instead of kicking against it like I have for years.

    Life is going to be better.

    Love and peace to all.xx

    Three years next year volunteer.

    Continued my health plans stay absenteeism thirteen years now, offer much as I can on any assistance .

    Be kind, good to myself .

    Looking at new menu and new things for home.

    Always good a clear out.

    Be great to be getting rid of others who impose on me, would be lovely meet new friends like myself.

    Have them here.

    Christian values peace, harmony, love to those who need it.

    Always in prayers.

    Hate pain, misery, heartbreak, hurt, harm.

    Those who are used are abused vulnerable, the lonely, those of our community.

    Need to be listening, ready with compassion, empathy.

    Be a friend.

    Not to be to depressing but mine would be to accept my conditions and to focus on the things I can do and to do the things I can do. To think positive and be there for others. I know this will be a good year...I can feel it
