Happy New Year! It feels like 2001 was yesterday so I’m not quite sure how we are in a new decade, yet here we are ringing in 2020!
Every year instead of making resolutions, I pick one word to live by for the entire year.
My word for 2020 is……
The last four months have been eye opening for me. I started a 100 day fitness journey that completely flipped my world upside down. For the first time in my life I looked forward to working out, loved how I felt, and started to like how I looked!
I want to focus on continuing that journey of health and fitness and growing my desire to make that a part of my daily life and routine. Eating healthy, well balanced meals for most of the week and the yummy comfort food that I love so much on the other nights. Working out at least five times a week for at least thirty minutes and finding active activities for Chris and I to do together.
I want to focus on GROWTH at work. What can I become more skillful at or what areas do I need to work on, grow from and feel strong in doing.
I want to focus on GROWTH in my marriage. Continuing to learn more about each other and find ways so strengthen our partnership and revel in what we’ve already accomplished!
I want to focus on GROWTH within myself. Learning how to be more confident, finding new hobbies that I’m passionate about, teaching myself a new skill, and taking time for self-care.
I want to focus on GROWTH with my relationships with family and friends. In person communication is where I thrive, texting and calling and keeping up when apart is harder for me. I’m not sure why that is, but I want to spend the year focusing on those relationships that have started to weaken and make more of an effort to help them grow again.
I’m loving this time in my life with just Chris, Cannoli and Mar. Eventually we will have kids, but until then I want to continue to grow as a person, friend, partner, wife, co-worker, daughter, sister and woman. 2020 is going to be the start of that journey to GROWTH.
