My January wrap up: So, in January I laid out my plan and began to focus on developing goals for the year. This actually took me the whole month, as I wanted to make sure that my goals would be things that I would actually follow through on and find valuable in my life. I wanted to find the things that would be significant to me, and get rid of the things that were motivated by others’ expectations.
January’s goal was to begin to make Health a priority again. I worked to put together a morning and evening check in process to make sure I was doing things like taking my supplements and drinking my water. I made a commitment to work with my body concierge for the year, to have her and a few others be my accountability partners.
I actually ended up making the hard decision to cut out some of my extra work-related non profit commitments, because in evaluating how I felt and what was causing me the most stress and anxiety, I realized I was not actually benefiting from being involved with them. This was probably the most difficult part of following through on my goals this month, but I’m very glad I did it. It wasn’t fun to be the person who lets others down and to step away, but it was necessary and I am at peace with my decision.
February is focused on getting deeper with explorations on Self love, self care, and visibility.
I have a big moment for stepping out of my comfort zone scheduled this month: I am going to Florida for a conference and all I can think about is how I’ll be meeting people in my online women’s business group in person for the first time. It feels like a huge step forward in the visibility of my business (and I know it’s going to be a huge step forward for my operations, management, approach to goals, and so much more!)
It’s also an exercise in self love because I am going to enter this room of business women from all over the world, not just my little circle of local friends, and I’m going to try my best to feel like I belong. That is so scary to even write!
As for self care, I am getting ready for this trip with my personal body concierge, who helps me with diet and exercise developed specifically for me. I’m doing yoga every single day and eating so many vegetables and drinking so much water!
I want to talk about some important things that I’ve worked through in all three of these areas this month. I can’t wait to share some of the things I’ve learned over the past several years on this theme! And, I would like to know if you have specific questions or topics that you’d like me to discuss. Let me know by leaving a comment.
