A challenge of mine lately, has been goal setting. The creation, the execution, and the follow through on these things have been getting more and more challenging as I get older. Maybe it’s because I’m stretched too thin lately, or that I’m just not able to commit in the way that I’d like to, but I’ve become a bit disenfranchised with New Years and the concept of goal setting.
This past year, I’ve spent a lot of time thinking it through. I’m certain that we place ourselves in a position for failure when we expect ourselves to follow through on an arbitrarily made goal. We do this just because the idea of renewal and being better at the top of the year has been sold to us, time and time again. I’ll happily make goals for myself, but I have to get out of the mindset that it must be done at certain intervals, at specific times in the year, when I feel that there is a clean-slate, so-to-speak. This year, I’m trying something new. Each day I will be doing something bold. Taking a moment every day to do something that gets my heartbeat racing, and helps get me to where I need to get to. #OneBoldMoveaDay will get me closer to my goals for 2017. I’m feeling optimistic about this belief that this year, every day will be my New Years Day.
Beyond that, I have my eyes set on some milestones to complete, or habits to further entrench into my life. On my list are: working more on my Spanish (which I started to learn in September), furthering and deepening my yoga practice, and growing my relationships as I have been for the last 2 years.
Wish me luck!
