My daughter's pic - a selfie she took on Monday (Dec 15) - feeling pretty about herself... For those who have been following my blog, you know how BIG of a deal this is.
As I reflect on the last few days left this year - I find myself thinking of new goals to continue to improve my life ... With regards to my daughter - the goals are to lower her absenteeism at school and increase her attendance (she's only been going half days and missing at least a day or two out of four every week). I also hope she will follow through more with her chores. We had a long talk last night as she missed school, lied to me and went out without permission. So working on trust and honesty is a big one. BUT I am recognizing the progress too - she's no longer cutting (self-harming) since MAY! She is less depressed and happier with her appearance which equals a boost in her self-esteem. We have the proper school support for her in place as well too.
For my weight loss journey - there's definitely BIG room for improvement and I know that likely the biggest thing will mean cutting out alcohol a lot more than I have been. I just wrote this blog about some of my goals for this area losedabooze.wordpress.com/201
I want to really focus on toning and tightening so I want to ensure I am consistent with strength training - pending the healing of my pain/inflammation in my elbow.
Financially I want to be in a better place too - so cutting down on alcohol will help for sure. The extra jobs I've picked up will help.
Romance used to be a BIG goal and now it's kind of 'here' in my life ... and it happened more or less as most said it would ... it happened when I wasn't really looking and I'm still taking it real slow (savoring the 'newness' of it all).
I'm going to enjoy the last 14 days of this wonderful year... I was checking my folder yesterday - it's something I create every year... a folder with a collection of positive affirmations, emails, abundance that has come my way... it's a great reminder of those great moments and I plan on creating a new one for 2015. I will be using that folder to acknowledge all the GOOD that has come my way and open my arms to receiving more GOOD...
