As you know, I have long and short-term goals. If you are not aware of them, you can read them here: My Vision Board and Gratitude Wall.
My long term, which I am not likely to do in 2 years and more likely it will be done in 3 years, I struggle with, because I do not want to be living where I am for the next 3 years. But I remind myself, it’s not worth moving somewhere else to rent privately, when it can be put to my long-term goal. I will only move if I get a council place. But as I have mentioned before, that’s about the same chance as winning the lottery.
It also means I won’t be having a cat while living where I am.
When I am inside my flat, I try to ignore what is outside:
- The neighbour opposite leaving their tied up (stinking at times) rubbish outside their door, rather than taking it to the main bin straight away.
- The same neighbours at times noisy. (They effect two of my other neighbours more than me, with me luckily not living above or bow them. But I have heard them at times, when they shout outside, instead of talk.)
- Seeing my first rat outside. (There is supposedly more than that.)
- Overflowing bins shared by my block of flats and the flats next door. These are also abused, because certain people put things in they shouldn’t. Filling the bins up with their own junk, as if it’s just their bin, when we all have to use it, but no room because of one person filling practically a very large bin.
- The stairwell in my block has rules, but those rules may as well be took down, because they are just broken and no one can do a dam thing about it, as I have recently learn when complaining about neighbour leaving rubbish opposite. So whats the point those rules being up?
- The litter strewn in the garden.
- Not getting involved with upstairs neighbour about neighbour downstairs and vice versa, because I am sick of when they bitch about the same thing about one another. They stand need, because they are as bad as one another. Both have trouble when it comes to alcohol. But I don’t think upstairs will talk about downstairs, after telling him straight he’s just as bad. After all, remember that time when I blogged here that he was pointing a gun at past neighbours that lived their opposite? He was under the influence.
My short-term goals this year:
- are lots more day trips out and about, whether near, or far. I hope these and anything else make my year go by easier.
- To keep looking at my visionboard, to help keep me focused on my difficult days.
- Having some lunches out by myself, or with friends.
- To vent if needed on my blog.
- To blog in general on my blog.
- Watching dvd’s.
- Walks out.
- Doing self-care things at home, like pampering my feet for example.
- To see if I can one day sit and do one of my crafts. (Or more.)
So that’s my rant and reminders. 😊
