Monday Quotable

This is the time of year where we focus on the resolutions we just made and try to create new habits so we don't give up mid-month.

Last year, I used a guide I found on Pinterest to set goals for myself. I totally bombed. In fact, the only things I saw through to completion were reading a book a month and eating more raw foods. That 2 out of 9 and a bucket list full of things like taking an improv class that I didn't get around to. Besides being busy at work, I don't have an excuse. I certainly spent more time in front of the TV than should be allowed.

I'm not going to wallow in shame. I'm letting go of the past and creating space for the future. Once principal will guide this year: Renew Your Commitment Everyday.

I started the year by reading "You Are A Badass" by Jen Sincero. It has given me a push to re-dedicate myself to my writing and to start pushing myself towards a life that is going to make me happy. I've carved out some specifics to make that happen and am excited for a year with very little downtime but one that is filled with things I WANT to do--not those I'm obligated to do.

I'm holding myself accountable by going a monthly check-in here on the blog. My projects for the month are:

1. Eat clean, whole foods; complete one three-day juice cleanse
2. Sign up for an improv class
3. Finish purging items we don't need
4. Try two new restaurants
5. Get back in the gym on a regular schedule (at least 4x/week)
6. Complete expansion of blog phase one (vlogging)
7. Create debt elimination and savings plan for 2015
8. Attend one networking event

I think these are pretty lofty goals for the first month of the year but life if short and I have a lot I want to do. Here's to writing a great story for 2015.
