My lovely and talented friend, Kate, has set up a goal setting workshop for 2017! I signed up as soon as I saw the post! You should too. Take a look here and see what you think.

Kate's Workshop Post

2016 has been a bit of a crazy year for me. My back injury in June of 2015 set me back more than I realized. There were a lot of things I couldn't do anymore. I had to give up karate and most exercise for awhile. I was dealing with pain on a constant basis. Every three to four months over the past year and half, I would notice that the pain would be a little less and I could do just a little bit more. It has been a slow cycle of healing.

It took me awhile to realize that I had descended into depression. It snuck up on me. For me, depression is a lack of energy. I just don't get up to clean, or cook, or even work on things that are a little more fun than those. Lethargy, inertia and a lack of creativity and fun in my life have defined this past year.

My MIL was diagnosed with breast cancer, my stress went up. Not long after, my chronic hives came back. (with a vengeance) I'd been hive free about two years. There are things going on with my husbands family that make me just want to wash my hands of them and walk away. I am not that kind of person I guess. Well, lots of you remember the old neighbor! (remind me to post about this. the move has been a game changer here) So, I can be that person. Maybe I just haven't hit that final wall yet.

I've spent the past month or so in a very self reflective mood. I've picked up my tarot again. I've been working to build my energy and creativity. I need goals, structure, intent in my life again. I'm taking steps to work on change.

Sending you hugs and hopes for a better 2017, icluding more healing!!!!

Depression can be an insidious motherfucker. Just being aware is a step forward. You have so much stress to deal with, that'a not helping. Resist as you can, but don't be afraid to ask for help.

You're a peach, and don't you forget it bb :-)
