An increasing number of I’m realizing that I’m not certain by the previous, and that I can actively select to reinvent myself every time the heck I need! Now’s pretty much as good a time as ever.
On that notice, these are some issues I’m trying ahead to embracing within the new yr. 🙂
1. Beginning a brand new job
It’s been some time since I’ve had one with a predictable pay interval! I’m actually trying ahead to a gradual paycheck and set hours.
That may sound boring, I do know, however I’m at a spot the place job stability sounds actually freakin’ superb. It’s a aid to now not carry that psychological weight, and slowly however absolutely, I’m beginning to really feel somewhat stronger daily.
2. Altering my health routine
I’ve labored out on my own in my bed room daily with a health video on YouTube for nearly three years due to the pandemic.
One thing occurred final summer season, although. It was like a change flipped, and I simply couldn’t discover the motivation to do it anymore.
Sure, exercising alone by your self on the morning time is nice for comfort and for saving cash (no fitness center charges, yay), however now the very last thing I wish to do is figure out in entrance of a display on my own.
I’ve made the choice to seek out and be a part of a fitness center within the new yr, ideally one with childcare, so I can take Connor with me whereas I work out, and as soon as I’ve received a greater deal with on my job schedule, I’m taking ALL THE CLASSES, particularly ones which might be new to me. Zumba, weight lifting, yoga, you identify it. So long as it will get me shifting, I’m there.
3. Embracing a brand new day by day routine
Quickly I’ll must shift my day by day schedule to accommodate the brand new routine, and even the seemingly small issues, like making Connor’s lunch at evening earlier than we go to mattress reasonably than doing it within the morning earlier than she goes to highschool, will change.
Am I low-key freaking out about how and after I’m going to seek out time to jot down? And the way am I going to deal with caring for Connor when faculty’s out in the summertime? Oh my gosh, YES.
However I do know that households finally determine it out, and we’ll too.
4. Constructing a brand new wardrobe
It’s going to be soooo totally different having to decorate myself correctly to exit on the earth as a result of truthfully, after Connor was born, I received used to having dried child meals stains on the whole lot and never being bothered in any respect by the occasional gap in my pants or shirt. LOL!
I used to like enjoyable and outrageous style after I was in my teenagers, 20s and 30s, however now, reasonably than push boundaries or stand out, I simply wish to look polished and coordinated and have NO HOLES in something, ha ha ha. Dare I say it’s been enjoyable purchasing for issues like work pants once more?
5. Evolving my writing objectives
They’re going to be totally different now that I’m not following a copywriting path as intently as I’ve been for the previous few years. One thing in my writing feels prefer it’s evolving, for positive, and in great way. To have the ability to write simply because I wish to, not as a result of my livelihood depends upon it, is an enormous psychological shift. In some ways it’s very releasing. I dunno how one can clarify it, however the shift has made me really feel lighter. Happier.
What are you trying ahead to in 2024?
Anyway, considering of you at the moment on this wet Thursday in Nor Cal. Hope issues are effectively and that you simply’re wholesome; everybody round me appears to be getting one thing!
