2017 Goals & Stuff

I enjoy making lists. I like jotting down opportunity areas. I love making small goals and seeing myself grow. Every new year, I jot down 3 major things I’d like to accomplish. Whether they are accomplished or not isn’t the point. The point is to dream and look for areas that you strive to improve in order to live your best life. In addition to my 3 major goals, I keep my tiny monthly goals going all year long. Taping those suckers on my bathroom mirror are a nice reminder of the little things I feel would make me a better me. Truth is, when we’re at our best we can give our best to those around us, our jobs, etc.

For those who didn’t have the best 2016, put it behind you … learn from it … but move into 2017 with a new mindset. Find yourself, love yourself, be the best you.

Currently Learning

I’m typically quite private so sharing what I’m currently learning via blog post seems like a stretch but here goes.

I like the idea of not over thinking, not planning, just living. Then when things go well you're pleasantly surprised.:

These days I’m currently learning to let life surprise me. This seems like a basic life lesson so you’re probably wondering why this is such an aha moment for me – I can explain. Typically, I enjoy coming to new understandings. I’m compelled to establish my own rules, boundaries, standards, and style. In other words, leaving little room for surprises or unknowns…

I’m focused on attaining my inner goals and standards. I set a particular course based on my theory of what ought to be. I work extremely hard to accomplish what I feel is important. So when things don’t go a certain way it can be quite annoying.

 :

Funny thing is, no matter how planned or calculated I am, life has a way of surprising me. Lately, I’ve experienced a few unexpected things and well … I’ve  quite enjoyed it.

Life is richer when we let our expectations be shattered and let life surprise us. In order to be more open to surprises I’m:

  • Keeping an open mind
  • Moderating expectations
  • Shifting my perspective
