I will make this the year I “soar like an eagle”. In order to do that, I really need to do several things – examine what I really need to do, the steps to take to achieve those things, and actually TAKE those steps. I need to get out of the mire that I’ve bogged down in recently. I need to take better care of myself. I need to acknowledge that I’ve been overwhelmed and ask for help.
I will do all of those things, no matter how difficult they are for me. I really don’t do well asking for help, for a number of reasons. I realize now that the diagnosis we got for our daughter has really just wiped me out and I need help facing the future and preparing better for our future and hers. I CAN be the wonderful, loving mother and strong advocate she needs (and a wonderful, loving mother to her brother as well)…I just need to prepare for it.
