It’s the middle of March and I think that this is the time when most people start to lose sight of those resolutions that they set back in January. I know I could use a little reminder to stay on track, or get on track for that matter.
I thought I’d do a little check-in. Here are the resolutions that I set for myself at the beginning of the year:
THRIVE in my career — take advantage of all opportunities.
I think I am doing OK on this one, but I could always do more — like ask for more writing assignments, take initiative to get ahead, etc. However, this year in itself has presented itself with lots of opportunities such as helping to publish the first of four (somewhat) travel magazines (YAY).
Become a better writer.
One thing I’ve learned within the past month is that I am terrible at receiving constructive criticism. Maybe it’s because I’m an only child and grew up being spoiled and awesome at almost everything (probably it), but the minute my boss tells me ways in which I can improve on something, I freeze and think that I’m out of a job. When that’s not it at all. So this one, I can clearly do better on.
Read at least three books per month.
FAIL. I’ve read one book this entire year and it was a book of poems (no offense, Rupi Kaur, because Milk & Honey was amazing).
Learn to cook (at least one meal per month).
This resolution was an attempt for me and the man to start cooking together. In the last three months, I’ve learned one new recipe and it was during a brief stint of me on a diet — baked salmon with some type of healthy mayonnaise topping (I know, healthy and mayo sound awful together), and then some sautéed spinach.
Live a healthy + active lifestyle. Get and keep the body I want.
I’ve been fairly active between barre, yoga and bootcamp. Still not where I want to be, though. Nor do I have a routine nailed down (dog).
Have a healthy + loving relationship.
I’m happy to report that we are slowly getting there. He is great.
Grow closer to God.
This has been so important to me and it takes a lot of effort, but I am also enjoying my growing relationship with God.
Go on at least one international trip.
BALI at the end of April 😉 stay tuned.
More zen, less psycho. Everyday is a work in progress.
With all my body goals, it’s insane to think that I’ve lost weight because I don’t feel skinny or feel good about my body image. (Need to stop this.)
BE BOLD, CONFIDENT & COURAGEOUS.
Another constant effort ~
