Getting a Head Start

I had a great weekend. I went on a date. It was so much fun and I was so excited. I am in a much better place emotionally than what I was just a few months ago. Making this switch with my job has been a blessing. I am kinder, happier and just all around more adjusted. I don’t feel this need to control every aspect in my life and it has freed me up to be happy. Anyways, I have started thinking about what I want to focus on this year. I think the way to set up goals is to think about how I want to feel in the upcoming months.

I watched this video over eight months ago.

If someone would have asked me if I was living this video, I would have said no. That being said, I had a piece of paper on my wall until August with a few words on it; words that described how I wanted to feel. I wanted to feel free, feminine, powerful and peaceful.

I felt out of control with my living situation so, I bought a house in August. I was disappointed with the level I was valued at work considering my emotional drain every day. I began the process to leave in July that finally came to fruition this December. I did not like how catty my behavior had been. I took the time to mend a relationship this month. I was not thinking I was aiming for those states of emotions above, but looking back, I believe I was.

I still need to get my physical self in order. I struggle with my self control. I just need to focus on making my body be a reflection of the emotions I want to feel every day. So that is my why.

40 Days and 40 Nights

40 days until vacation.

I really cannot believe it. I am so excited to have the time to just relax.

In fact, I have tried to begin that relaxation bit already. With my new job beginning today, I am trying to take a new approach to work. Work hard, do my best, stay organized and strive to exceed expectations. But above all: CHILL! I am naturally high strung, so I am beginning this process the right way in order to keep sane. I know this new job can be stressful. I just want to stay as calm as possible.

My Happiness Project is going well. I’ll have an update soon.

Hope you all had a wonderful Mother’s Day!

Here I am with my mother and sister last summer on Mt. Rainier. What an awesome day!
