Jedi is Caught on Floor 16


TheGreyJedi-Ranger

Recommended Posts

I've been caught at level 16 for SO. LONG. I've been struggling with physical, mental, and emotional burnout for the past couple of months. I've been working too hard on too many things that, at the end of the day, don't matter. So I'm going to take this month, this challenge, and focus on self-love, compassion, and healing. That's what I need more than anything else in the world right now.

 

So I'm going to readjust my goals to make them a bit more... attainable. I've been working myself too hard. 

 

I'm also going to try a new theme (yay! New themes!!). This challenge is going to be Sword Art Online themed. I am going solely off the anime (not the sequel stuff either, just the original). I've got a bit of a storyline to do as well since I'm trying to get a little more creative in my daily life.

 

Her in-game name was one she borrowed from one of her favorite fictional characters: Mara. She'd been stuck in the game for over a year now, and she'd been stuck on floor 16 for three months. After flying through the first 10 floors or so, the floors beyond that got more and more difficult, exhausting, and just.. too much. She had to make sure she was a high enough level to move on to different floors without immediately getting killed. Her guild, the Rangers of Eld, wouldn't let someone move on to a new floor until they felt like the person wasn't going to be in severe danger by moving floors. This safe approach had spread the guild thin, but was keeping most of its members alive. Few had been lost to monsters that were beyond their level once this system had been placed within the guild. 

 

But Mara was tired of this floor. She was tired of failing the tests her guild placed for her to move on. So she decided she was going to keep working. She was going to fight and battle and practice to make sure she could keep going. Eventually, she'd even catch up with her heroes both within the guild and without. Some of her guildmembers were so high leveled that they were on the front lines, fighting with legendary figures like The Black Swordsman. She thought she'd even seen him once from afar, but she wasn't convinced. The Black Swordsman was one of the most powerful figures in the game.

 

Mara would have her time in battle, and she'd work for it.

 

And now for my goals.

 

1- Two (2) yoga workouts each week

I'm taking a break from my strength training. I'm tired, but I want to continue to grow and change. Yoga will help me with my goal to be more flexible, and it will also help keep me from losing absolutely everything in regards to my strength.

2- Two (2) days where I meet my step goals on my smartwatch

My smartwatch adjusts my step goals based on my daily steps. By January it will have goals for me that are a stretch, but achievable. Meeting those goals will be a way to get me moving without causing undue stress.

(Run, kid, run!)

 

3- Three (3) days where I stretch

On non yoga days, I'd like to get my stretching routine in as well. Being more flexible is a constant goal of mine and it's very soothing when I remember to do it. It'll be good for me this go-round.

(battles require strength and flexibility)

 

 

I'm also going to post my Mini Goals here too!

Strength Feat - Drop and give me 15 (elevated) push ups!

Speed Feat - How many jumping jacks can you do in 2 minutes??

Distance Feat - Go the extra Mile (or how ever many steps your goal is) to get your step goal a third time this week

Combat Feat - Try out Shadow boxing

Rangerly Outdoorsy Feat - Take the doggo to the doggo park and let her play

Following for a gentle January :) I'll have a look at your blog a bit later on (mentioned in your previous challenge). I'm so glad that you're going to therapy and get help! I don't know about you, but thinking about a lighter January with recovering exercises and stress management sounds blissful. It's nice to know that we can spend all our energy on healing, instead of struggling and trying to be better. Getting better is good, for sure, but sometimes what you really need is recharging your current self. Let's stabilize!

I think I finally hit "rock bottom" as it were. Usually when my Mental Illnesses flare up, they flare up independently of each other. And I always connected them to other issues- like my current situation. But this time both my eating issues and my anxiety issues flared up severely all at the same time and stayed flared up for SO LONG. 

 

I'm just ready to focus on relaxing and recharging. I haven't been doing enough of that lately, especially with everything draining me so much. I need to find a stabilization point. You can't build a house if the foundation is shoddy! Time to focus on the foundation of me. I have to figure out what I'm working with before I can build myself better.

It sounds to me that we've gone through similar things. I was diagnosed with a generalized anxiety disorder back in 2012, and I've suffered from disordered eating. I can't say how I recovered, exactly, but I think that both me and my surroundings just slowly changed. I also did my very best to create myself a healthy environment, and it just slowly became so. Trust in time and effort! I was in a terrible place a few years ago, but with work, patience and kindness, I think I'm getting better. A little humour here and there helps, too ;) And good music!!

My mom and grandmother both have severe anxiety. Both are medicated for it, though my grandmother's wasn't managed well until a few months ago. I was diagnosed with adjustment disorder when I started college in 2013 by a college therapist, and my Primary Physician, who knows both myself and my family very well (he's been my doctor since I was a baby), put me on an anti-anxiety medication. 

 

I'm hoping that my therapy will give me ways to cope with both issues - preferably without medication. I don't have any particular issues with meds, but most anxiety medications are the sort that you can't take when pregnant. I don't want to get dependent on an anti-anxiety, then when I want to have kids I have to go off it and spend 9 months+ completely miserable and making my husband's life difficult as well. 

 

Humor and music keep me going! (Hence why I married a goofball musician xD) I'll have to check that video out :P

This is such a good good thing IMO.  I did the same over the summer when I was -so- burnt out and, for me, it was the right choice!

SAO is one of my favorites. Also Blue Exorcist, Attack on Titan (in the middle of it right now), Bleach (never finished watching but read all but the last 100-150 chapters of the manga), and Fairy Tale (couldn't finish because I can't stand subbed).

 

Well, I also like (in no particular order): Lord of the Rings, Ellie Goulding, every book Sarah J. Maas has ever written, Harry Potter, Maximum Ride (James Patterson), David Eddings books, wolves, Bloodlines (Richelle Mead), League of Legends, Purity Ring, Young Wizards (Diane Duane), Halsey, writing fanfiction, pit bull doggos, playing keyboard/piano, BBC Sherlock, Wolves of Mercy Falls(Maggie Stiefvater), penguins, writing modern fantasy novels, the Tenth Doctor (and Rose), The Mortal Instruments (Cassandra Clare), Rise Against, and bullet journaling

 

In case there's any other overlap :)

 

And yeah... It's been really difficult recently and I definitely need a month of self love.

Blue Exorcist, yus!  Need to watch second season that came out.

Attack on Titan, yus yus!  Current.

I did Naruto over Bleach, but have 50 episodes to finish it off... (Considering that the combined run totals over 700 eps, I feel good about this still.)

Fairy Tail, yus yus yus!  I have cosplayed TWICE as FT peeps.   (Also, dubbed is out in full now!)

Lord of the Rings, um YES.  Playing Shadow of Mordor as we speak.

Harry Potter movies, yup, dig 'em, but not super hardcore fandom there.

Sherlock.   YES PLEASE, all the cumberbatch!

Pittsburgh Penguins count, right?

wolves- omg yes... yes yes yes, that's why my pre-NF user name everywhere is lilwolfe006!

Played the piano starting at a young age, but fell out of practice... in one of my early years of NF challenge I put that on the list and so I have a keyboard under my bed... need to get back to that someday.

 

Soooo yeah, no overlap there at all.   Nope.  Nada.  >.>   Hahaha.

 

Also, given the list of what you have liked, I highly highly recommend Soul Eater!! :)  And Noragami!

Well done for seeking help. I suffer from anxiety and, although I didn't hit rock bottom, I had an incident this year that made me sit up and say 'I can't going on like this, I need to get help'. I've been in counselling for a few months now and I'm coming to the end of my cognitive behavioral therapy sessions. It's the best thing I've ever done for myself. I hope you get the help you need.

Following! 

 

 

Well done for seeking help. I suffer from anxiety and, although I didn't hit rock bottom, I had an incident this year that made me sit up and say 'I can't going on like this, I need to get help'. I've been in counselling for a few months now and I'm coming to the end of my cognitive behavioral therapy sessions. It's the best thing I've ever done for myself. I hope you get the help you need. 

I hope so too, I'm ready to figure this all out.

Following and supporting!! 

 

I didn't know anything about anime until I worked at a bookstore.  Still don't know much, but SAO looks really cool.  

It's definitely a cool one! It's somehow a really awesome action story with VR video games mixed with the most PRECIOUS love story of all time.

Hey! Your goals sound great. It seems like we're kind of in similar places. Here's to a restful process of strengthening our foundations & rebuilding ourselves :)

Hello everyone! I've been a bit absent because I was out of town doing Christmas things with my family. It went surprisingly well ^_^ Everyone is happy and we all enjoyed our gifts. I'm currently making use of my new essential oil diffuser! I also received new bowls so Mr. Right won't have to eat cereal out of mixing bowls anymore. And some corn husker's lotion so that I don't look like I stuck my hand through a glass door.

 

I'm super ready for the new year to start. Tonight I might stay up and watch a movie, but I also might go to bed and ring in the new year cozy in my bed. My goals for tomorrow include taking out the trash, going grocery shopping, and taking down the Christmas decor. I also want to get my first yoga video in tomorrow! If not, then I'll make sure to stretch properly later on. Depending on the time I've got, I'm also going to look at cleaning up/out my pantry. I made a list of large cleaning tasks that I'd like to get done this month. I've got a lot of weird things in my pantry that are in weird places that need to be THROWN AWAY. Like the dog food that my have made my doggie sick, among other things. 

 

Ranger Mini should be completed Tuesday. I'm pretty sure @Tanktimus the Encourager picked the coldest week of the winter so far for the outdoor ranger feat >_> And of the days I'll be home before dark, Tuesday is the one with the most potential for warmth. Ugh. Luckily, I've got a mess of warm blankets in my cedar chest in my bedroom. And I finally broke down and turned the heat on in the apartment. 

 

I'm less ready for my first therapy appointment on Thursday. But despite my nervousness, I know I need it. 

 

Have a great New Year's Eve all, and a great week 1!! <3

Whoa, that's cool!! Gosh, I read the heck outta that series. I loved Stiefvater's approach to the whole werewolf mythology.

I had the order of the feats worked out before Christmas, I just worked the arctic plunge into the storyline.

 

lol.  The high for the week just keeps getting lower here.  It was 40 yesterday, is 37 now.  But we are rangers for a reason.

 

Hey Jedi!

 

Glad you had fun with your family!  And yay for adult gifts! ha.Hopefully your therapy session is what you need it to be on Thursday!
