So a few months ago I set some goals for myself and I figured it’s about time I show some accountability and give you all an update. Incase you missed them or forgot, you can click here to see my earlier September posts on changes regarding my reading habits, fitness goals and finding a new home.
Let’s start with the reading goals. I mentioned that I was going to start reading again before bedtime and although I have…it hasn’t gone as planned. I didn’t even get to pick up the book I had said I was going to read. But a friend loaned me a book written by the Dalai Lama and Howard C. Cutler titled The Art of Happiness. So far it’s a great book…too bad I’ve barely made it past the first chapter! And trust me, that’s not due to lack of interest in the book, that’s due to my crazy schedule and other changes I’ll be mentioning here momentarily.
Now let me talk a minute about my fitness goals. Fortunately I’ve kept up my weight training 3 times a week, and I have started walking 2 to 3 times a week as well, but still no jogging :( Doesn’t seem like I’m doing too well with my goals at this point, does it? But honestly, with everything I have going on, I’m proud to say that I’ve at least maintained that much. And I can assure you that it’s about to get amped up here soon.
So what’s been keeping me so occupied? Well besides my two jobs, volunteer work and holiday plans, a major part of my schedule has recently been snagged by my success with my third goal: Finding a new home!!!
Yes I finally moved and got a new place that I can call my own :) This is monumental for me. I’m still working on finishing touches to make it feel more like my home, but I’m already loving it and I can tell it’s already having a very positive effect on me. I’m sleeping better, I actually look forward to going home at the end of the day and I feel happier in general because of this change. Like I said before, your home should be a place where you can rest and recharge, a place to explore your creative energy and a place where you can really let your guard down and not worry about anything else but being you. Of course it would be great if we could feel that way no matter where we are, but let’s face it, that’s not an easy thing to do. But your home should be your refuge and should be the easiest place for you to simply be you, no filter needed.
I finally have that and it feels great :)
As for the other goals…wellll, let’s just say that they are still in the process of being accomplished. Yeah, that sounds good ;) Perhaps I’ll have another update for you in a few months.
What about you, any projects in the works? Have you maybe even accomplished some goals lately? You know I love a good success story, so please share!
