I know I’m happy it’s almost Springtime! But, for me, I take in new months as a fresh start. A clean slate to re-prioritize goals, add new ones, or make a new game plan to achieve them. (The OCD in me looooooves making lists, FYI.)
This month is no different. I’ve had some struggles the past few months with how to go about where I want to be and who I want to be. That’s when anxiety kicks in and I head bootcamp to let it out! But after being flustered and thinking I’ll never get to where I want to be, I remember to continue to work hard to get there, but also to still enjoy life while getting there. We often focus on the future (which is great, don’t get me wrong. I daydream about the future in between making new program ideas at work.) and forget to be appreciative of what we have NOW and live in the NOW. So, I’m making it one of my goals this month- live in the now, but still keep working hard to achieve my goals.
I know that my goal of becoming more fit and healthy is on my top 3. Not to be skinny or look cute in a bathing suit, but to FEEL good. Even at 30 I still learn everyday how to have confidence and that it comes from inside, not out. Sorry for the cheesy line, but its TRUE!
I want to encourage you, my readers, to do the same. Think about what is truly important to you, what makes you feel good, flaunt it if you feel good, and prioritize. Remember, YOU are a priority too!
I think it’s important to support one another also. There is so much hate in this world, BE DIFFERENT. Be kind. Compliment a stranger. Help a stranger, friend, lover. A simple ‘thank you’ to the clerk at the grocery store. Kindness goes a long way.
SO! My March goals:
- Take more time for myself-i.e. read more, attempt to cook more, wear lipstick more (silly, I know.)
- Workout 3 times a week
- Look for a second job
- Laugh more
- Spend more time with family
What are some of yours?!
Here’s to a fresh month, hopefully more sunshine, and that feeling after achieving any of your goals. YOU. GOT. THIS.
