As 2017 comes to an end I have been reflecting back over the past year and looking forward to the New Year. Over the past year, I have really been working on finding myself again and pushing myself to new limits. I believe I have come a long way since January 2017. Not only just with my personal self but in regards to my relationships and career goals.
A New Year, A New Me
Recently, I actually found a list I had made early in the year with things I would do if I had no fear. There were six items on this list and I completed three of them. This spoke volumes to me because I had actually forgotten about this list and yet, I accomplished half of the items anyway. By working on improving myself through meditation and focusing on the positive I reached new limits that I wasn’t even consciously aware of.
Another thing that helped me to stay focused and improve myself is a vision board. This is an exercise that my husband and I always do at the beginning of every new year. Doing this together makes it a bonding and motivating experience. It just demonstrates that we are growing together not only personally but as a couple as well. In addition, our oldest daughter sees us doing it and wants to make one for herself! 2018 will be her second vision board! Vision boards are a daily reminder and motivation to keep pushing myself every day no matter what.
This year has been a big year for me because of all of the progress I have made. It has increased my self-confidence. This will only allow me to grow even more and reach goals that I would never have even thought were possible. I am grateful for all that I have learned this year and am looking forward to all the amazing adventures that are in store for me through my hard work and new found self!
