May 2019. Four months down. I could dwell on the things I have not done. There are plenty. For instance…my goal to write to this blog weekly hasn’t materialized with work obligations and other obstacles. I haven’t picked up my guitar since January. My daily yoga has turned into “hopefully” 1x per week. My weight hasn’t been where I would like it to be. I owe my clients some reports…and I could go on and on and on.
But I’ve decided to focus on the small victories that I have managed to do. These include – studying for my health coach exam. Registering for my Precision Nutrition Certification and IDEA World Live. I registered my new company, had a logo created, refined my business plan and am getting some swag made.
I ‘ve stayed consistent with my weight lifting and am seeing the changes both physically and mentally. In general my diet has been good, but my hormone fluctuations as I head into the big “M” are definitely having some impact. So I am mentally trying to not focus on the scale and look towards how my clothes fit and how I feel.
My sleeping has improved. I am almost (if not 100%) healed from my surgery in November. I’ve scheduled a handful of nice vacations.
But here is where I want to focus. I’ve awakened from my sleep every morning. My family including my 84 year old parents are still healthy. I get to exercise..every day. I’ve seen some of the most spectacular sunrises and sunsets that I can remember this year. I’ve gotten to travel to Europe, Asia, Hawaii and the west coast already. I started my second company and will likely start a 3rd in 2020.
SO all in all. I would say things are moving along. moving forward. Have I been able to grow my Instagram following? No. Do I really care? No.
Instead of focusing on things I really can’t control, I’m controlling the things I can. It is these small steps that are adding up to larger victories and I could not be happier. Why? Because I actually took the steps. I started.
New day. New Month. New Opportunities. Just start. Whatever it is. Just start.
Live. Love. Laugh. Grow.
