I don’t know about you all, but I had a crazy week. For three days in a row, I only slept 2 hours a night and by the third day, I was really starting to feel it. Finally on Thursday night I was able to get some shut eye and boy, was I thankful!
Highlights this week include my new hair!
And new sunnies!
My old ones broke the other day. I was proud of how long they lasted though–they were Maui Jims that I’ve had since I was 15!! My dad bought them for me as a gift when I started playing tennis in high school. Those shades made it through two seasons of tennis, studying abroad in Australia, Athens, and Avignon, all throughout college, medical leave, and since graduation. Rest in Peace MJs.
One thing that’s been on my mind the past few days is how well I’m doing with my goals for the new year. I’m not a big resolutions person, but I did resolve to make some serious changes in my lifestyle and mindset in 2013.
I don’t believe I’ve actually shared these goals in detail on the blog, so now is a good time to do so! Some of my goals are lofty, and include financial and business goals, while others focus on the type of person I want to be and how I want to feel about myself. Here are a few of them:
Create and maintain a gratitude practice
Be a more supportive friend
Don’t tolerate toxic people and relationships
Have higher standards for relationships
Regular yoga practice
Don’t take things personally
Have strong, lean muscles/be fit
Exfoliate and dry brush on a regular basis
Get published in a major magazine
I’m finding that having a variety of goals is keeping me more engaged in life. I’m also finding that talking less and doing more is contributing to maintaining or working towards these goals.
I think that resolutions or goals are a nice idea, but how many times do we make them and not stick with them? Let’s make this year different!
A few weeks ago, I found out about this great tool to keep in mind when thinking about the importance of setting goals and I really wanted to share it with you all.
