I wanted to take a few days to really think hard about what I wanted 2014 to look like. It turned into a few weeks, but at least it’s still January! A year ago, I was in a tough spot professionally and the stress levels were impacting my life. Fast forward one year and life is good! I don’t feel like I need the new start of a new year to redefine and motivate myself. That being said, I do like the idea of setting intentions for the year ahead…something I have been doing in a notebook since before I even knew what blogging was : )
What I wasn’t sure was whether this year’s list would fit into easy categories like last year, but it seemed to come together into to either a mind or body category. Last year, I needed to restore some balance in my life and I am proud to say that I did. This year, I want to learn to live the life I want to lead. Sounds easy right? Not always. It is easy to try to fit into everyone else’s norms and standards, not in a peer pressure kind of way, but in a lazy or that looks easier kind of way. This year, I want to stick to my own intentions, follow my healthy habits, and not give explanations or justifications. Instead, I want to just be proud of the person I am. And have some toned arms to show off!
