Hello, lovelies! ❤
Over the past week I have grown to learn more about my blog and kind of how I would like to utilize it. If you saw Friday’s post, then you know that I would like to do weekly fitness tip posts every Friday. I also thought it would be nice to do a reflection on my week every Sunday, along with a short focus list for the upcoming week. Other than that, I feel that I may only have one or two monthly posts that will probably vary on the topic.
As for today, I was relaxing and spending time with my daughter when it hit me (yet again) that I need to do more of that – enjoying the moments that are here and now right in front of me (not on my phone!). I need to stop spending so much time worried about things that are out of my control. Friends and family have told me time and time again that you are only in control of your thoughts and actions, no one else’s. One thing I notice about myself (and have for the past two years) is that every time I reach a point of balance and contentment it’s as if my mind can’t handle it. When this happens my mind starts to slowly spiral out of control and generate a whole list of new projects and ideas that I should take on. Now, some of these ideas have made a great addition to my life, but others have not. What I’m trying to get at is that the most important part of my week should be spending time with family because that is the thing I treasure more than anything. I also recognized that all too often I spread my time and energy way too thin because of all the new projects I jump into. So, onto my focus list this week:
- Life: Work on getting into a daily routine to help with prioritizing and time-management; keep up with cleaning; and start packing things up (hopefully!)
- Health: Keep improving eating habits (“cleaner” foods); keep exercising daily; and keep taking supplements daily
- Blog: Start keeping a journal to help keep thoughts and ideas for blog posts organized and together
Thanks for taking time to read my post! What kind of things are you wanting to focus on in your life this week? Do you relate to anything I shared in my reflection?
