The question asked was … what are your aspirations and plans for new possibilities in your life?
That isn’t an easy question. This year I really tried to focus on myself and giving myself time to be healthier. While I won’t say I met this goal, I will say that I started working towards it. I am a smaller me even if it is evident on the scale it is visible in appearance and in my clothes. I can run after my kids or back in the house four times over for whatever we forgot as we try to leave the house. I think this year showed me that I can work on goals for myself while still being “mom”.
Next year, I want to continue to work towards the healthier me goal. I know I can do more than I am doing. I know that to do this I need to find something I really love to do that keeps me active. I know this is possible because I have found that key in the past. I did learn this year that what has worked before won’t always work again so I have been trying new things … while on our budget which adds to the challenge! I am looking for a scheduled challenge that I can start and complete next year. A 30 day work out challenge was the one thing I did commit to and complete this year so that mean something for what drives me. I need to learn from that and keep moving towards a challenge goal!
Another goal is to keep up my graduate classes. I often question why I am taking them and if it is worth my time away from my family activities and activities I want to do … like exercise more! This year I completed three classes … three out of ten for the Masters degree. The end goal is there so hopefully I can get there and not lose my mind in the process. My degree will be in Instructional Technology which is a big stretch from what I do daily right now. I don’t know where this will lead me, my career, or my life but for now it is where I am headed. I am hoping for big things in the future from this accomplishment even if I don’t know what they are right now!
