New Year, New You?
So much pressure! Was something wrong with who I was a couple of days ago? The new year always leaves me considering who I want to be this year. I think I’ll be Marnie, with an added dose of awareness to what that looks like. To begin the process, I like to reflect on last year. Here are the questions that I ask myself:
1. What are you most proud of finishing in 2021?
2. What still feels unfinished?
3. What was the greatest risk you took last year?4.
What surprised you most about the results from that risk?
5. What was the most profound lesson you learned?
6. What was your smartest decision?
7. What 3 compliments were you paid that meant the most to you and what do they have in common?
Those answers will be my starting point. I’ll go from there and tweak where it feels right to make changes and stay the course with what’s working.
I had recently gone several months without exercising. It went by much faster than the several months of working out usually do! I know that I am not fat. So, I am not saying that I am. However, I have added some cushion around my middle that I’m not too crazy about, so I started exercising again last week to get ahead of the whole New Years resolution craze. Why is it so hard to put my own health as a priority? I know that’s a question for myself and my therapist. (That’s why she makes the big bucks!) lol
For 2022, I aim to make that higher on my list.
Wanna know my answers to the 7 questions? I’d love to hear yours!
