HAPPY AUGUST LOVES! Let me give you a little personal fact…I have always been the type of person to write down my goals. Whether they be personal, work related, long term or short term. There is a certain power that stands behind writing down your goals and aspirations. Writing them down is the first step to them becoming a reality and not just a wishful thought. I decided to start sharing them with you for two reasons:
- Sharing your goals with others is a great way to keep yourself on track. Self motivation is key, but this will also act as that little extra push. I used to keep a journal for all of my goals, but this way is a bit more effective for me.
- By sharing your goals you could help someone else with their own personal journey. Whether it be the process in which you go about starting your new journey or the beautiful outcome of achieving your goals…someone…somewhere…will appreciate it.
This month I will embrace happiness. Many things have changed as of recently, and I must say that my spirits have definitely been uplifted. A big part of this change has been meditation. I used to mediate quite often, but with a crazy work schedule and change in sleeping habits, that started to be a less than consistent practice. I have gone back to mediating every morning before I start getting ready. I start with a stretching session and meditate for about 5-10 minutes to follow. This time frame depends on what time I have to leave the house. This may seem like a very short period of time, but that’s truly all you need sometimes.
This month I will love deeply. Last month I focused on self love. That is now a given aspect of my daily life. I will now focus on the true selfless love that comes with being in a relationship. There is an old saying…You must first love yourself before you can truly give your love to another person. This is very true because many relationships fail due to insecurity or personal, deeply rooted issues. I am happy with myself. I love everything that I have become and have the potential to be. With that being said, I also love my girlfriend, and she deserves the world. This month will be the start of something amazing for us. See you in 11 days babe.
My last focal point of the month will be cherishing shared moments. Far too often, we as people look back in search of memories. I mean really wrecking our brains in search of a memory, and in that search we sometimes have pieces missing. I want to have vivid memories of moments shared with others. Photographs are great to look at, but the thoughts and emotions you have when looking back are most important. I have tons and tons of photographs from childhood, college, events and life’s random moments, but not many people take time to enjoy the moment they are currently in. They spend more time trying to digitally capture that moment at the time than actually live in it. This month I choose to live in the moment.
