Did January feel like it was like 100 days long to anyone other than me? I have had so much exciting stuff going on the last 4-5 weeks that I can’t believe its been such a short period of time!
As we bring January to a close, I am reviewing my goals for the New Year, and trying to decide what to focus more and less on. I’m always so fascinated by how quickly our goals and ideals can change. My mood and outlook can change completely in a 30 day period of time.
January was really a great month for me. I got a lot of stuff off my shoulders, made a lot of changes (for the good), and just got a lot accomplished. To top it off, I feel like I have really found my happiness lately. I can truly say that I feel more at home with myself, and happier than I have ever been in my life.
Goals for February:
- Continue to work towards a healthier lifestyle – This was probably my biggest resolution going into he New Year. I really wanted to find my balance of exercise, eating right, self-care, and self-confidence/esteem. All of these are areas that I was really lacking in, but I am so proud at how far I have come in the last 30 days. I have been consistently working out, making conscious efforts to eat less and make better choices, taking better care of my body, and talking a whole lot nicer to the girl in the mirror. She’s actually pretty cool and deserves a couple of compliments every now and then (;
- I really want to focus on reading more – This was also a New Year’s resolution of mine. I completed one book in January of the 25 I want to complete this year, so I am not off to the best start. It’s not that I don’t have enough time to read, because I think I totally do. I think I am just using that time to do other things, such as spend ENTIRELY too much time on my phone. So in February, I want to spend less time focusing on the screen and more time reading. Reading is so good for me mentally.
- Just try to be a better person – I feel like I have really been working on this one. My word for 2019 was kindness, and I keep trying to remind myself of that. In some areas I think I am doing great, but in others not so much. I want to be a genuinely good and kind person; I really do. And sometimes I feel like I could definitely do more to make this happen. So in February, I want to try a little harder to be kinder.
That’s it; those are my only goals for February. In this super busy season of life, the last thing I want to do is overwhelm myself here. If anything, I would be happy if February went as well as January. I am so happy with my life; I really don’t want anything to change.
