Life lately has been very very busy, it isn't a bad busy but a very real busy that causes twelve hours a day of work and a real need for balance, but it's March! I woke up today and the sun was out. It is finally above twenty degrees, and I have time today to enjoy my coffee. It's going to be a good day. I wrote a little bit ago about enjoying the small moments, and that's what my goal is for today. I want to make sure in the middle of my meetings I'm taking the time to enjoy the small moments of seeing the daylight, the taste of my coffee, enjoy that I'm wearing my favorite perfume, and finally wearing sandals!! I love having goals each month that help me see the small moments and not let each month fly by. Here are my goals for this month.
1// Make oatmeal twice. This month I had a very busy day, and after I came home and took my time to make dinner. It was so nice. It has such a sense on accomplishment once you finally sit down and get to enjoy what you just cooked. I want to connect this in small ways over to my breakfast. I know myself, and to put down something like "Make eggs Benedict" is not a realistic goal for this month. I'll go with oatmeal and work my way up.
2// Write down a verse and stick it on the back of my door. Looking at your goals or something that encourages me really helps my mindset. This month I want to add something to my door.
3// Do something that is out of my comfort zone. In January I tried an Arial Yoga class, which is so very far out of my comfort zone, but I learned so much and it was nice to get my mind out of the "norm." I want to do something again this month that is far out of my comfort zone. Learning and growing.
4// PASSPORT! This is the month I'm going to renew it!
5// Cut my TV Cable I don't use it at all, and yet I'm paying for it. I really need to stop that this month!.
6// Do one at home facial/mask. My skin has been taking a beating from the day to day weather change. Today it's 70 degrees, praise!!, but two days ago it snowed. I've adjusted to the altitude but the constant weather change this time of year is brutal for my skin.
7// Taxes. I know, it's basically like a four letter word, but also it's necessary. I also want to make sure I give myself the time to get all of that done before trying to move. I don't want to be doing both at the same time.
8// Wear my sandals more!! This I can't really control, but the Florida girl in me is so so happy today because I'm wearing my sandals. My poor very white skin is longing for the sun and to wear something other than boots.
9// Take more pictures. I've been really slacking on the picture game. I think it's the winter blues getting me down, but no more!! I really want to take more pictures this month.
10// Remember that comparison is a thief of Joy. It's always funny to me when my name is in a phrase, but this is a very true phrase. If you really want to make yourself miserable, compare yourself to others. If you want to be inspired, learn from others!!
