It’s that time of year where the motivational quotes and thanks for the year that’s been are covering Facebook. If there’s a time for looking backwards it’s today, but it’s also my favourite time to think about what I want to be different in the New Year.
So my resolutions for 2016 are:
1. To be better at keeping in touch with all of my loved ones
With a few funerals at the end of 2015 for people that I hadn’t spoken to enough lately, it made me determined to get better at keeping in touch. I started this with writing Christmas cards but not as many as I would have liked. 2016 is going to be better.
2. Keep working hard to spread awareness of myasthenia
It’s been a good year for myasthenia with it making an appearance on TV show Empire and #ihaveheardofMG reaching far and wide on social media.
At the end of 2015, I worked with the MG community to create this Faces of Myasthenia video and it has been viewed more than 500 times. I’m going to do a lot more to promote this and try to get people to share their own images/videos with the hashtag #FacesofMyasthenia.
I’m sure there will be other opportunities to raise awareness and I’m going to keep trying to find them.
3. Try to be healthier all year long
I’ve had bursts of really looking after myself and bursts of not caring. I hope to be more consistent this year with my eating, exercising and sleep.
While there are lots of other things I want to do in 2016, that’s enough resolutions to keep me going.
Happy New Year everybody!
