I’ve doing a bit of soul searching these past few months. I’ve been reading and re-reading some of my favorite bloggers/writers/mentors/books/articles etc and really trying to get my bearings together in life.
I’ve pretty much taken off the past 6 months from life and just played. It’s been GLORIOUS but I want to start to get a grip on life. I want to be on a particular journey. It’s okay if that journey isn’t planned or set yet, but I need to know I’m at least taking steps down a path.
So for you, here are a few of the things I am going to keep in mind the next few months.
1. be more health conscious. What does this mean? um… stop eating restaurant food EVERY DAY FOR ALL MEALS. Seriously, just because I work in one doesn’t mean I need to eat the food all day/every day. I’ve been getting up just a little bit earlier than normal and making a giant thing of eggs before I depart. I’ve also been making regular grocery store trips for protein/granola bars (the more “organic/good for you” ones!
Most importantly, I’ve stopping having a drink every. single. day. I used to come home from work and have wine. We used to have a beer/shot or a few beers before we left work. I used to do after hours at a specific bar almost every night. HABIT BROKEN!
2. Cooking/blogging more. I really love cooking and blogging. Like, REALLY love it. I love the creativity and physical work in the kitchen and I really enjoy just sitting down and writing later on. If you know me, which most of you don’t, you’d know I’m a talker. I like this form/space for writing because I write the way I speak. Silly, all over the place, happily, childishly. My mouth gets a break and my fingers do the work.
3. reading. I have SO MANY BOOKS IN MY QUEUE and littering my apartment but I just don’t make it a priority. Times, they are a changing.
That’s all for now. These are specific/visual things I am working on by the end of 2014. (Ew, did I really just write that? where did the year go?) They are measurable. They are incredibly attainable. And more importantly, they are the things I actually want to do with myself.
MWUAH! Happy Saturday!
