I know, September and then nothing! Bad blogger. To be fair, I did have a post set to auto publish in October and somehow it didn’t…so you will probably see that in the next few days.
I hope everyone enjoyed a wonderful fall, Thanksgiving, Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanza, Festivus, or whatever it is you may celebrate. Except for our President to whom I’d like to say Happy Holidays.
2017 was a great year but also a hard year. My health has been stable but not stellar, something that it truly only my fault at this point by eating like a sloth and exercising like a car on cinderblocks. My finances look good but could look better. My work is stable but I’d like to be a rockstar. My personal life is fine but I’m feeling very stuck by certain things that used to help me move forward.
I have never been one to make resolutions but this year I’m making monthly commitments. For me, it is simply easier to commit to a month of something because if I fail, I get to start fresh in a few weeks after figuring out how I can be more successful vs making it a few weeks and then feeling guilty for the rest of the year.
So my January commitments are:
1. Push the stable to stellar. Eat clean and do something, anything good for your body from an activity level daily.
2. See how little money you can spend in a day. Starbucks…it’s not you, it’s me.
3. Blow work out of the park this month because January sets the tone for the year!
4. Once a week, go somewhere new by yourself. Talk to new people, grab a cup of coffee and observe…learn that it’s ok to hang out by yourself from time to time.
What do you do for the new year? Goals? Resolutions? Mantras?
