Oh, January! Where did you go?!
I feel like January has totally passed me by, and I can’t seem to figure out how we got to this point so quickly. I can honestly admit that I got very overwhelmed at times. Things are going full speed at school and at the design shop. There have been some unexpected changes with both, and as I type, I realize that I still need to take a step back and reevaluate how to approach each in a more thoughtful and meaningful way. While I am finding growth in both areas of my professional life, I am finding that I need to assess if the direction I’m headed is beneficial to me… and my sanity.
As I sit to go over my month, I can say I’m beginning to incorporate a few of my goals for this year. There are some things that I am doing well and others I’d like to focus on more next month.
~I began working out with a few members of my team. I actually listed these ladies in my goal action idea in my Powersheets binder. Support is something I desperately need to achieve my goal of being more active, and I can honestly say, they keep me motivated. I intend to work out with a personal trainer twice a week, and work out three days on my own.
~My business is growing, and I have to change my game plan to accommodate the growth. I feel both blessed and nervous about the growth. I have a goal to work at the MPPD shop full-time at some point, but that may happen sooner than I expected. Even so, I am excited about growing, and I want to make sure this growth matching with my core values. I always want to do something I truly believe in.
~Each morning I thanked God for allowing me to see a new day. I know that no day is perfect, and everything is not always going to happen the way I want it to happen. That said, I know it is a privilege to see each day. I want to make each one the best I can.
~I want to make healthier food choices more often. February is my birthday month, and I fully intend to celebrate my 30th birthday with treats. I also want to be sure that when I’m not celebrating, I am making a conscious decision to eat food that is more nutritious and better for my body. We have to live.
~I intend to declutter. I set that goal for January, and couldn’t keep it up because I was too busy worrying about other things. The past week has certainly taught me that I can fit in what I truly want to accomplish. I plan to set aside fifteen minutes each day to clean something. In the long run, it will yield big results.
~I’m going to spend more time with the Lord. Plain and simple. I need to realign my priorities.
