Ok, That was a hard sentence to write!
I may need a second to process that sentence……Realizing I am not the person I want to be
wow, that carries a lot of implications, thoughts, and so much more.
This week I am taking charge of a few things in my life that I have let go and not made the focus that I need them to be.
Starting with my health, my relationships and my personal part of the blog.
I spent the past 3 weeks deep cleaning the blog and my closet after reading the book The Happiness Project. This book has seriously opened my eyes to some things that I was ignoring and stuffing into the back of my closet both metaphorically and physically.
I realized that I have been holding onto things that I just don’t need in my life today and not giving time to things that I really do need in my life the attention they need.
I realized that I need to focus on my health and getting out of my desk chair. Don’t get me wrong I absolutely love blogging and getting to share our life with everyone but my butt has become permanently attached to my office chair.
There were times this winter that I did not leave the house for days. I mean seriously did not walk out the front door at all!
This has to change! I need to take time for me, my relationships and my health. I need to get out of my chair and see the sunshine, smell fresh air and soak up more of life!
Today was day 2 of John and I going on a walk and it felt so dang good! Ok, the next morning did not feel good when every muscle in my body reminded me that they are used to sitting in an office chair and not walking but I felt good!
I felt energized and excited! Heck! I came home from our walk and vacuumed under the cushions of our couches…..who does that?
I must confess part of that was trying to find my house keys that I managed to lose 3 weeks ago and still have not found in the house.
Yeah, i have not had house keys for 3 weeks and it has not been an issue…..did I mention I seriously need to get out of the house more often.
My other goal is to share more of me on the blog! I want to share what life is like as a blogger, recipe creator and traveler. I want to share the good, the bad, the ugly, the fun, the well everything!
I was inspired to start this daily diary series by one of my favorite blogging friends Vera from Lady and the Blog. She is a rock star! You all need to check out her blog!
She shares so much of her life and I love it! I am using her inspiration to push myself to share more, be more, live more!
So today is day 1 of living my life with more focus, love and getting out of the house!
My goals include…..
~Saying I love you and thank you more often
~Being thankful for each day and making it the best day possible
~Getting outside of the house more often
~Sharing more of me on the blog
~Taking time to read and enjoy the simple things that give me pleasure.
I hope you all enjoy the more personal side of the blog! Please feel free to share your thoughts, goals, ideas, dreams, hopes, fears and anything you want to share. I want this to be a community that helps up lift each other and
