In my last blog, I reflected on the highlights of an eventful 2016. Before we get any deeper into January 2017, I wanted to share my expectations for the year. I prefer the term expectations, as opposed to goals, because to expect something means it's likely to happen, almost like an obligation. A goal, on the other hand, is something to aim for, but you may not necessarily achieve it. While there's much to be learned on the journey towards a goal, even if it isn't reached, being expectant requires greater commitment.
Ok, so here is my list, in no particular order. Hold me accountable!
Now it's your turn! Hopefully you've already set your own expectations, and perhaps just need to write them out. Need a few suggestions? Consider these:
Place your list where you'll see it regularly, and feel free to post it in the Comments section for accountability. Let's make 2017 our best year yet!
Whew! We made it to 2017! Was 2016 a rollercoaster year, or what?! I know that for many of you, last year was fraught with ups and downs on many levels. It was certainly full on my end, too. And while I'm ready to focus on the next ride around the sun, I'd like to take a few moments to slow down long enough to reflect on the highlights of an eventful year.
What did I NOT accomplish in 2016? Writing blogs consistently! Besides having some computer issues, which have made website updates cumbersome, and limited creative time, I recognize that there's already so much available to read from countless fitness gurus. So much advice. So many videos. So little time or attention span to consume it all. And I'm not one to write just for the sake of writing. Rather, I do so only when I'm inspired. I'm aiming for greater inspiration (and a new computer) in 2017!
If you haven't already done so, I encourage you to jot down your own list of highlights, and even lowlights, so that you may acknowledge how you've grown, changed and adapted to your personal journey of life. An easy way to start is to peruse the photos you took through the year and review your calendar since January 2016.
May you be empowered by your reflections to set new goals for mind, body and spirit in 2017. We'll talk about those in my next blog!
