So as a child I have always done my New Year’s resolution on a yearly basis not so much because I wanted to but mainly because it would be part of some writing assignment in school. I think it went on up until my high-school days. Since then I don’t believe I’ve ever made a New Year’s resolution
Personally, I don’t think what I’m about to list would be resolutions but it’s kind of like a list of things to do for a 2017:
- Blog probably at least two to three times a month, there were months when I wasn’t able to write at all in 2016
- Visit the hospital at least once a month. I think I consciously made the effort of not going to the hospital in 2016 because sometimes I told myself that I couldn’t do anything about the patients. Come to think of it, not going to the hospital further limits the opportunity to help others.
- Train at least 5 people in treatment and care support with focus on hospital visits and sourcing of donations for the positive community.
- Keep better records of cases handled for better and easier reference so I don’t end up confused with all the patients’ records and names and cases.
- Keep reminding myself not to expect everyone to come back after they get better to say hi or hello and keep telling myself that at least they’re doing better.
- Hit my 10th year anniversary with my partner by August and of course, my 10th year anniversary living with HIV by July.
- Disclose my status to my mom and yes, I haven’t done so for the past 9 years mainly because I’ve always thought that she’s in her senior years and that she doesn’t have to know, so I finally decided to let my mother know.
Wish me luck.
