We went to a pub sing, hosted a Valentine’s party, rearranged our place, and got rid of things (again). I feel still a bit tired, but also renewed. I am feeling great because my place looks great and I started doing this winter challenge where I have to do at least 2 miles a day. In addition to that, I will be doing the 21 Day Fix so I hope I can keep myself together as far as not randomly snacking at all of the upcoming events.
I cannot believe it is February already! I have done a good job at keeping up with my resolutions. I think it is because I am making these wishes a part of my daily life, not just until I reach a goal. Fitness, more time with God, eating right, writing more, and keeping things tidy and in order can be lifelong. Versus in the past, when I would say- “My resolution is to lose 40 lbs.” Now, I am just trying to make permanent lifelong changes. I think that is the difference.
Have you ever been to the point where you just don’t want to just be different, you are GOING to be different? That is where I am. I am definitely going to change. I am not saying it is not a struggle and that I am eating perfectly and I am writing in my journal religiously, but I am doing it more. I am trying harder. I am sticking to things better than I have in the past. And, that is all that I can do.
Unrealistic goals, or either goals that are not grand enough hold people back. The trick is to find a place between the impossible and a little bit above where we already are. I am working towards a place where I am comfortable and successful. I challenge you to do the same. Pushing a little past your zone is a good place to start, but don’t expect to be a model or a mogul (or whatever your dream) in a short time. Set boundaries/deadlines/goals that can be achieved in your lifetime. Don’t compare yourselves to others. We all have our gifts and strengths and faults or weaknesses.Know yours.
Enjoy your night and be the best you that you can be.
