Imported from Tumblr, Jan. 2019
I’m walking into 2019 with the most peace, joy, and excitement than I’ve ever greeted a New Year.
I rang in the new year with my amazing husband, daughter, and brother-and-sister-in-laws while finishing an entire bottle of champagne single-handedly, polishing off the last bits of Christmas chocolate that remained in our pantry, and creating this magical vision board, which I’m rather proud of.
My resolutions and intentions for the year are as follows:
1. Positive Language Only
I am currently reading Jack Canfield’s “The Success Principles” and he reminds us of the important Dale Carnegie quote of being “Hearty in Your Approbation, and Lavish in Your Praise”. For me, this means no complaining, no criticizing, no self-deprecation, no “I Can’t” statements and no playing the victim. This year, I take 100% responsibility for my life.
2. Focus on Health
Last year, I finally achieved my goal weight and developed consistent habits in working out and in what and how I eat. I changed my relationship with food. I felt a renewed sense of love and appreciation for my body. My anxiety symptoms decreased, and my depression lifted. I realized my food sensitivities through paying more attention to my body. This year, I will continue to prioritize my health by giving up alcohol, refined sugar and gluten. I’ll run a half marathon and prepare for a full marathon in January of 2020! I’ll continue to make my health- physical, mental, emotional- a priority every day.
3. Spark My Passion!
This year is all about discovering what my ideal business and career will be. It’s about writing, and telling my story. It’s dancing again- with a goal to perform on stage. It’s reading and practicing The Artist’s Way- morning pages, artist dates, and finding a Mastermind group. This year, I will graduate with my Bachelor’s Degree- and enroll in a life coaching program. This year I will imagine what I want to be when I grow up.
4. Konmari Method
I am in love with Marie Kondo and obsessed with “The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up”. This system of simplification, minimalism, and gratitude will be adopted into our home, our eating, our schedules and my mental health practices. I could geek out over cleaning and organization all. day. long.
While those four are the Big Ideas, I also have the following goals and focuses:
- Support Hubby in his business dreams.
- Eliminate all debt.
- Get passports, visit cousins in Ireland
- Family reunion over the summer
I am so excited.
