Here it is.. 2021…And here I am wondering what am I going to do this year??? What is going to be my big resolution?? What is going to be my new goal?
I have been trying to figure what is going to be my big goal or resolution. I am a big advocate for working on yourself, making plans, setting goals, and striving to do better year after year. I am all for that…I am like a sponge when it comes to working on self care and self reflection. I live for new books, podcasts, journals, affirmations, etc. I have been knee deep in it for weeks, thinking about 2020…Trying to prepare for the start of 2021. I went back and forth on what was really important to me for next year. I think I was stressing myself over coming up with that one thing.
However, do you ever get to a point where you just feel like enough is enough.. Why can’t I just be content with who I am? Why can’t I continue to concentrate on what I love? Why am I always searching for that one thing that might make this year the best yet.
So then it finally hit me…what if I just concentrate on everything I have already been working on… continue tweaking and sticking to what is important to me. Maybe I wont be the girl with the big list of goals this year. Many I wont do epic things…but maybe I will get farther ahead with everything I have already been working on.
I want to continue learning to just be content… Ya, I should lose 5 lbs, but I probably wont. I exercise daily and I am very active, but losing those 5 lbs is not that one thing that is going to make my year the best ever. Mostly because I like nachos and wine. I do not always need to come up with something bigger and better.
I just want to continue being more content with just getting as much done in a day as I do. I know my limitations. I know when I get to the point of when I feel stressed and overwhelmed. So, what if I listened to myself more and stuck with that.
I want to continue moving forward down the path that I have the last few years. I want to concentrate on not taking on too much. I want to concentrate on just being happy. Learning to just let more go. I also want to remember to make that time for myself.
The last year has been a up and down rollercoaster.. And what if I took 2021 to just stand still for a bit. Stand still to regroup and focus on everything that has been important to me the last few years. Remembering that less is sometimes more. Remembering to take that time for myself. Remembering to spend more time with my family. Remembering to not rush through the day. And Remembering to say no when I want too…
I think I got thrown off the track many times in 2020. I would take on too much or become overly stressed about all the happenings in the world. I forget what was important. I would forget to let many things go, especially what I could not control. I would worry to much about my kids, family, work, and figuring it all out.
So It might only be a few things this year, but I am fine with that… because that’s what’s important to me. Maybe this will just be the year of tweaking…taking the time to go through all that important to me… and tweak it.
