"The past couple years have literally been life-changing. So, setting goals that included my own physical, mental and emotional/spiritual health was necessary to continue on a journey of continually bettering myself. This year, I made a goal to hire a personal trainer to kick my butt into shape. This has not only allowed me to be more consistent at the gym, but has also opened up my own knowledge to what works for my body the best and learning to love my body in a whole new way. For my mental health, I made it a goal to create space for myself to rest, truly rest. I am an extrovert at heart which means that being surrounded by people all the time, always, is how I recharge. However, it does make it hard to focus on just me; something that I have a hard time doing and something that I am learning to do better. So, giving myself at least an hour every day to relax, dream, pray, sleep, and just be in the moment has been a healthy way to help me focus on just me for a little bit. Because the past few years have been so heavy, it has been essential for me to really dig into my emotional health and ensure that I maintain a solid and positive mindset about who I believe am. This includes my values, my standards, my character, my relationship with God, my relationship with my family, friends, and colleagues and even my relationship with strangers I come into contact with every day. Staying consistent with these goals has allowed me to show up more confidently at work, and as a result I am watching my career take off in ways I never imagined. It has also allowed me to be more patient and reflective during tough times and more at peace overall."
Thank you SO MUCH for sharing your goals Becca!! I am excited to see you crushing it and love that you have created space for yourself along the way!
