Every year on my birthday I like to look back and reflect. And since my birthday is so close to the New year, I tend reflect and write about my goals/resolutions at the end of January.
Here are some of the things I am checking off my lists (thankfully)
- Graduating with my Masters
- Paying off ALL of my student loans
- gaining more confidence when interacting with new people
These were some great accomplishments this year! I am super excited to have finished my master’s and am so thankful to be starting my new job in a few weeks. Paying off my student loans-wow! We were so happy to be able to do that while still paying for my grad school. The last one is something I have been working on for a few years, but this past year I finally realized I had overcome it (or at least gained enough tools/strategies to not be a nervous nelly in new situations!).
Here are some goals for the next year!
- waking up at 5 am (consistently)
- feeling confident in my voice/opinions (but certainly not in an obnoxious way!)
- reading 20+ books (I’ve already read 4!)
This 5 am wake up is going pretty well. And although I am definitely more tired at the end of the night, I am sleeping better. But I also have to conscious when going out with friends that I can’t be out past 10 or 11 pm! This early wake up was based on a decision on my personal productivity (better in the morning!). The little bird doesn’t usually wake up until 7/715. So this is a WHOLE 2 hours that I have in the mornings to read, get lunches ready and other household tasks. I also try to take some of that time to connect with my husband (un-interrupted).
Do you have any fun, interesting or exciting goals for the next year? Or have any accomplishments to share?
