Wow! This year has flown by! So much has happened! I moved twice! Got two new tattoos. Took up running. Made new friends. Lost some friends and reconnected with old friends. Spent time with family. Went on a yoga retreat. Had a family Disney trip.Went to my first WWE match. Traveled to New York City and Michigan. (Experience my first Michigan winter. ) Started an online clothing store. Watched one of my best friends got married. My niece was born. I met the man of my dreams. (Still going strong by the way) Learned what true love was. Loved myself more. Set boundaries. Was Kinder to myself and others. Let go of what wasn’t serving me. Cared less about what others thought. Of course there were challenges along the way but overall I had a pretty kick ass year.
As always I like to make PROMISES to myself instead of resolutions and here they are:
Continue to Run and Exercise
Run my first 5K and continue to workout! I’ve found working out really helps my over anxious over thinking mind! So I want to continue doing this not just for my body but for my mind.
I have a tendency to overthink things which often leads to anxiety. This year I promise myself to TRY to stop overthinking life. (Key word is try. I don’t want to put too much pressure on myself.)
Continue to set boundaries
This year I learned to set boundaries and keep them and make sure others keep them too! So more of that this year!
Trust in the universe. Trust that everything is always okay. I tend to always want to know what happens next in life but that’s not how life works. So to learn to let go and surrender to the universe.
I’d like to consistently meditate more. It gives me such a sense of peace. ✌🏽 So it would be good to start doing that consistently again!
To Continue to Be the Best Girlfriend I Can Be (This one is self explanatory.💕)
Buy a House! Fully adulting here. 😂 But for real I’d like to buy a house because Charlie, my dog, needs a yard. And I want fun house projects/garden to work on that I will probably end up having my boyfriend help me with.
Adopt Another Pet Charlie needs a friend. 🐶
Be Here Now In the words of Baba Ram Dass, Be here now. “What are you doing? Planning for the future? Well it’s all right now. But later, forget it baby that’s later. Now is now. Are you going to be here or not? It’s that simple.” Tomorrow isn’t guaranteed. So be here now.
What promises are you all making to yourselves this 2020?
