As 2018 comes to a close, I’ve been reflecting on the many great things that happened over the past year. I have grown so much and became capable of things I never imagined I could do. I worked my ass off and paid for a vacation to Italy on my own, I started student teaching and took risks that have made me a stronger teacher, I was accepted to RewardStyle and am currently making money through my blog and Instagram, I came sooo close to completing Kayla Itsines 12 week program (in 2019
I never would have believed you if you told me that I could accomplish all of that. I shifted my mindset and reminded myself that everything I want to achieve in life is already out there, I just need to work hard and go get it. Nothing in life comes easy, well that is, anything worth having. I challenge you to work your ass off in 2019 to make your dreams a reality. A few things I will work for in 2019 are:
Being Healthier Overall: I have not treated my body the best over the past few months. I ate junk and didn’t work out nearly as much as I should have. In 2019 I want to treat my body with the respect it deserves. This means going to bed earlier, drinking lots of water, moving my body more, eating clean, having healthy relationships, less stress, and more positivity.
Work Harder: I go through phases of working super hard for something I want and then low phases where I’m not very motivated. I want to dive deeper into my student teaching, I want to upload more blog posts and create more content worth reading, work harder to maintain healthy relationships. In addition, I want to stop comparing myself to others, and to not only realize that I’m capable of great things but to actually do great things with my gifts and talents.
Truly Be Present: This is a major goal of mine. I have trouble turning off and truly being present with what I am currently doing. This can be with both technology and my mind. For example, I would be at a sorority event and would be complaining about how much homework I have to do when I get home when I really should be enjoying the moment and having fun with the girls around me.
Take Risks: This is one that scares me quite honestly. I tend to stay in my comfort zone for the most part. This year I am challenging myself to say yes to more things, to talk to people I usually don’t talk to, to get more involved, to make more connections, and to really put myself out there on my blog, because in the end I really have nothing to lose.
