If we could learn how to balance rest against effort, calmness against strain, quiet against turmoil, we would assure ourselves of joy in living, and psychological health for life. – Josephine Rathbone
Balance. This theme has been coming up a lot across my clients, and in myself, so this coming year I have set an intention of commitment and balance.
I am committed to:
1. Improving my financial fitness
2. Improving my physical fitness
Call them goals, or intentions, but whatever you call them – I am summoning them into the forefront of my mind, heart, soul and conscious so that I can spend the next 365 days making small but consistent improvements. Every dollar, every minute spent working out, or healthy meal, they all matter. Rest days, not depriving myself of EVERY joy, and living life are a part of that balance too.
I very much enjoy challenging myself, my beliefs and pushing myself to see just how far I can go. I love birthdays and New Year’s Eve, because I so enjoy looking back and seeing progress, change or transformation over time. Getting to experience the privilege of aging, I am so happy to feel like every year is just another chance to travel new places, try new food & drink, meet new people, and improve my circumstance. Birthdays are less now about the gifts or parties, and much more (for me) about the people and experiences I got during the year leading up TO my birthday. It’s about looking back with gratitude, and forward with childlike wonder in where we can go.
Every day is truly a chance to transform ourselves or start fresh, so I know without a doubt, that by the time the clock strikes on my 36th birthday I will have some great memories and an even more wonderful life than I do today!
