It’s the start of a new year. Time for new memories, new opportunities, new goals, and just so much more. A few years ago I came across a post from another blogger where she chose a word instead of resolutions. I liked that idea so for the last few years that is what I have been doing. I had to put some thought into my word. After thinking long and hard about it I have decided my word for this year would be intentional.
Let me explain why I chose this word. Intentional is what I want to be with myself. I have this uncanny ability to put myself last. I don’t take care of myself like I should. This was never more evident than when I had my medical issues just a few months ago. I keep putting things for others before myself. So I need to work on focusing on myself and the goals I want to carry out. The truth is it’s no one’s fault but my own. I am a procrastinator and I have fear of failure so for me it is just easier to focus on other people. Sure I would love to see results of my own projects but I have to actually work on them first obviously. So this year I want to bring some of my ideas to fruition. I actually want to work on the things I say I want to work on.
Some of the things I want to work on is maintaining my healthy eating, getting back to making income from my blog again, I also want to focus more on my marriage and relationship with my kids, and reading books to not only enjoy but to share with my readers. At the end of 2021 I want to look back and say that I accomplished something. I got some things done in 2020 that I never thought I would. I really want this year to be the year where I achieve so much. I want to push fear aside and accomplish something. I can’t wait to see what happens in 2021.
