In October, I made all these intentions and goals with the mind set that I would stay on top of ALL the things, and of course, that didn’t happen. Because life isn’t cut and dry and things don’t always happen the way we want them to. November just sorta went on by and I lacked the motivation to write anything down. So here’s December, a new month and a new opportunity to set and attain new goals. I’m ready.
1. Get off your ass.
I have a genuine problem with laziness sometimes, which some weeks I don’t think matter because working in healthcare just runs you down sometimes and that’s just plain and simple. So I need a rest day every once in a while. It’s a problem when one day turns into four. Oops. Regardless, this month I’m dedicating to getting off my ass and taking action in accomplishing my goals.
Struggling with laziness or lack of motivation is okay. We all go through periods of time of high energy and low energy. When you feel your energy is low, I challenge you to at least get dressed. Being dressed, even if you’re at home all day, will help you feel like a) you’ve accomplished something for the day and b) you’re ready to make things happen…even if you don’t. So get dressed, eat a meal, go for a walk, maybe read a book (instead of watching TV). Set little attainable goals for yourself daily that will help you feel successful and confident. Just get off your ass 😉
2. Push yourself but give yourself grace too.
I think sometimes my goals for my future cloud my present. They overshadow everything else when sometimes the most important thing for us to do is just to be in the present moment. I’m ready to push myself and challenge myself. I’m ready for growth and new lessons. Are you? And while I find goal setting so key to being successful, we also have to remember to give ourselves some grace too because sometimes we are our own worst enemy.
3. Say YES.
Don’t let fear of failure get you down. Again, sometimes we’re our own worst enemies. We hold ourselves back and in turn we become stagnant in growth. But challenge yourself to say yes. Say yes to the challenge and face your fears. It’s okay if things don’t go the way you planned, don’t be afraid because all we can do is learn, readjust, and move forward.
Just three intentions this month. I feel that December will be a busy month and I am so ready for more adventures. This month I’ll have more blog posts up for you all because I’m feeling ALL the motivation right now… *hint hint: next topic* 😉 See you all on the blog soon!
Much love, B.
