I’ve been home quite a bit this spring. I have realized that while I’ve been filling my time with lots of things that I love—dancing, knitting, doodling I’ve not been writing nearly as much as I normally do. I tend to write when I’m feeling inspired, I don’t write well under pressure. But I also know that when I write it makes me feel better. There’s something about putting those words out into the Universe that makes me feel good. I honestly never write with the intent that there’s an audience or even one person reading what I write. I write for me. :)
I had a reboot kind of moment over the weekend and worked on taking everything off my vision board and deciding where my head is at the moment. It’s probably the least amount of things I’ve ever posted to the board, and most of them are not things, but thoughts, plans and goals.
Be Healthy—I am sporting a fitbit flex and I am loving the motivation that I am feeling at the moment. I’ve even started getting up 30 minutes earlier to get in a walk before work. I’m looking at this as one step at a time and moving in the right direction. So far every day I’ve met my goal of 10,000 steps.
Expand and Learn – Learn one new thing a month, do one new thing a week I like all of the possibilities this goal opens up for me. Hmmm..something new I think I’ll try this combination pear/apple. It’s nudging me to try new things. (I’m not going to get all crazy with the green stuff just yet.) I’m still pondering my new thing to learn for June. It doesn’t even have to be a big thing–just something new is a good idea to continue to grow.
Be Positive ~ Joy ~ Gratitude ~ Abundance – These are the words that I need to focus on a whole lot more. I’m a very upbeat and positive person mostly. But there are times when even I fall off the happy cliff. I’m finding that the yoga classes I have been taking along with the time out walking give me lots of time to ponder life, and to be amazed for all that I have. A year ago today I was in Australia, two years ago today I was in Ireland. Never ever in my wildest dreams did I think I would get to experience so many new and amazing places. I have a trip to Houston on the horizon and a long weekend at Big Bend. I love more chances to see more of this amazing state of Texas.
Write More Inspire – Like anything in life, if you do something for 30 days, it can become a habit. And if you don’t do something for 6 months apparently it can stop being a good habit. I can’t promise that I’ll write something every day. But I feel better when I am writing, so I’m going to work on the effort to put at least some rambling posts out there about what I am experiencing at that particular moment in time. I’m not traveling as much, but I’m still out there enjoying life and experiencing new things.
My goal that never leaves my vision board….
Help someone achieve a dream.
Inspire someone to catch the giving spirit.
Make someone smile each and every day.
I’m not sure if these are measurable goals, but I know when presented the opportunity I do all that I can to make these thoughts a priority.
Reboot completed…let’s do this!
