Oh 2018 has already been so interesting. I've already been pushed pretty far this year and it's only been two full months. I truly believe this is going to a year of great amounts of growth in my life. I also haven't written 2017 once?! Can you believe that, I think I was just really ready for it to be 2018.
What I've been learning
Since January there has been huge amounts of growth of responsiblity at work. I've been focusing on what it means to be a good/fair leader. I want to be a leader that others respect and one that helps them grow and be better at work and in life in general. I've also been trying to define what it looks like to be a responsible leader, and how do you be on top of your game without having to work 12hrs a day, literally!
I've been focusing more on community and what that means. I wrote a post about a what I do want to focus on this year, generosity. This month I've been diving into what it means to be generous. What it means to be a Proverbs 31 woman, and how that impacts my life and how I interact with people. To be honest, I really haven't read Proverbs 31 too many times because it's always something that is told in church growing up. A girl is told to be a "Proverbs 31 woman". I do firmly believe that, but I also know that so many of the girls I saw with that on their walls were not correctly portraying what that chapter meant. Have you read that chapter of the Bible? That woman is amazing!! She knows what she wants, she is kind, and direct, she has her standards and is doing what she does. Go her!! I do want to be like that.
My lease is up and I'm in the process of deciding where I should go. It's also hard because I'm not sure if I'm looking for a one bedroom or a two bedroom. I've been so focused on work that I looked up and my lease is already ending next month...oops. I'll have to figure it out soon I guess.
I've been so obsessed with "This is US", all the sadness!! I've also been watching the entire sermon series "Relationship Goals" from Transformation Church. I found it on Youtube. It's such a great representation of what a real conversation about relationships should be. I've also been playing Candy Crush recently, yes I know 2014 is calling, but I feel like it helps my mind escape for a minute and focus on something other than work and spreadsheets and just chill out.
How's your 2018 going? What have you learned this year? How are your goals going?
