I’ve long been a goal setter. I set goals daily, small ones and big ones as new dreams come along. Goals drive me. You don’t become a journalist without thriving on deadlines and goals. But as I enter my 28th year I thought I’d try something new. I decided to take a page from how Erin from Design For Mankind handles her New Years Resolutions. Instead of using the anniversary of my birth as a spring board to launch new goals, this year I’m going to take time to appreciate the things I’m proud to be doing now.
Here’s a list of my anti goals this year:
1.) Keep focusing on eating healthy fresh vegetables and fruits. It’s going to get even easier as that new garden grows.
2.) You’re working to keep tabs on your screen time, which is giving you more time for other activities and helping you get better sleep. Nice job!
3.) Breakfast is supposed to be one of the most important meals of the day and while you’ve never been an early morning eater, you’re working to make sure you eat something by late morning at least and that’s great.
4.) Keep working to streamline your life by reducing clutter wherever you can. It gives you more space and time to focus on the things most important to you.
Do you take time to congratulate yourself for the great things you’re doing? What are some of the things you love about yourself?
