A new year is so exciting! It’s a time to refresh, renew, and realign.
Moving forward on our “Live Life Now!” series, let’s review where we are. In order to look forward, we must look back. By now, you have completed your, “25 things I accomplished last year” list. And, you have selected your “word” or “theme” for the year.
Some things I have on my list are……running my first Half Marathon, going on a buffalo safari, watching the FalconX rocket blast off live in Florida, standing in the very place where astronaut John Glenn blasted off into space at Cape Canaveral, giving back to my community by volunteering with Girls on the Run, digging for garnets in Ely, Nevada, reconnecting with my cousin and with friends, reading more books, being more brave, and getting rid of toxic relationships.
For my word of the year, I’m still mulling over it…..I’m leaning toward “propel.” This word is focused more toward my business. For my personal word(s), I’m thinking it may be, “Do the opposite”. I want to step outside my comfort zone a bit more.
Now we move on to goal setting!
Ask yourself these questions:
1. What is important to me?
2. What do I value?
3. How do I want to feel?
I want you to really think about what is important to you, what you value, and how you want to feel. Take some time to sit down and start writing things you want to accomplish in 2020. This means no distractions, so turn off your phone, the TV, and your music. There are no restrictions or limits to this exercise. Try to write down things that include your mind, body and soul.
Here’s some sample goal categories to help you along:
- Self care and Wellness
- Personal Development
- Family and Relationships
- Fun and Adventure
Your list can be something external such as work on my self care, invest in positive relationships, or make a career change. Or it can be something internal, one that focuses on how you’ll develop yourself personally or strengthen your character such as be open-minded, be proactive instead of reactive, be adventurous, or be better able to set boundaries and say no.
Next week, we’ll dig deeper into goal setting to ensure you are crystal clear on your goals and you set achievable goals.
The key to everything is loving yourself. After all, we limit the good we allow in our lives by how worthy and deserving we feel.
“You will be with you longer than anyone else on the planet so why not make it a good relationship?”
