2015 is here! This weekend, I had a few friends over for a vision board party. (You chicks left all your fatty foods and wine for me to eat! Don’t worry-I’ll find something to do with it!) I didn’t finish my board as I was making sure my guests had a great time. Instead of just going through magazines and cutting out pictures and quotes that I liked in previous years, I know EXACTLY what I want to include as I know the goals that I want to accomplish this year.
Over the past few weeks, different things have been shared with me to make me reflect on things and to help me establish what goals (I don’t do resolutions) I want to accomplish in the new year. My main goal is to focus on me-spiritually, emotionally, financially, and physically. On the spiritual aspect, I’ve joined a local church (FINALLY!) that I love! I missed my church during the two Sundays I was in SC for the Christmas holiday and thoroughly enjoyed the NYE service. I can’t wait until they start Wednesday Bible study again in a few weeks. In the spirit of being transparent, I’ve thought about seeing a professional, specifically in dealing with the death of Southern Mom. I know that it is something that I will have to endure for the rest of my life, but I want to make sure that I am taking care of me first. I’ve started working with a financial planner, and even though I feel like he has put limitations on what I can do (although he really hasn’t-I just hate budgeting), I know that his assistance will benefit me in the long run. Lastly, I need to take care of my body-point blank and the period. I need to eat better. I need to start working out. Not to sound vain, but I think I’m a cute girl. And I feel that I can be even cuter once I start taking care of myself. In short, I don’t want to just survive-I want to live.
I hope that in the next 360 days, I become a person that I am proud to be and that is better than the person I am today.
So what are your goals for 2015?
Until next time, I’m just a Southern girl…in the city.
