1st month into the new year and I’m killing it.
oh, 1st month into MY year…I base my years off my actual birthday because clearly someone forgot to tell 10 year old me that the world doesn’t revolve around her.
Year 24/2016 was rough for me. Just a few low lights, I constantly felt trapped throughout that year. I wasn’t a fan of my job or my lifestyle. I made some lazy decisions and I didn’t listen to my body. I felt clouded and tried to escape by focusing only on other people. At the time the relationship I was in made me feel needed but to a draining degree. I felt like I any thoughts about myself were selfish when I had the opportunity to help my S.O but what I realized is 1. you should be in a relationship where you feel that your S.Os happiness isn’t only stemmed from you and 2. that I needed to work on me much more than I thought before I could share myself with anyone else. In that year I also was immobile due to an accident for quite some time which launched me into a series of low points of the year.
So before in my end of the year reflections I decided to let go of everything in 24 that had been a burden. Job problems-resigned, Relationship issues-broke it off, Lifestyle/over healthy living- went back to working out & being more aware of my eating habits. And now a month later, I am feeling so light and free (and not just because I’ve lost a few pounds either) mentally I am more driven and focused.
I don’t think this is a temporary high either, I feel like I have really placed some great building blocks for a more improved version of myself. 30 days in and I’m very pleased with my progress!!
