Growth and change are constant values of mine. It’s easy to get stuck in a rut where you feel like you’re doing the same thing day after day. & that doesn’t feel good, even if you’re doing something you like. Growth is such an important part of the human experience. Without it, you’re stagnant and life becomes boring, tedious, comfortable. (I’m not suggesting jumping completely out of your comfort zone and never returning.) Comfortability is amazing and a necessary part of life as well! It’s when you get too comfortable and it starts to turn into a lack of motivation or an acceptance of doing the same thing day after day that being comfortable turns into an issue.
One of the best ways to spark change is by creating goals for yourself. Now you can’t just come up with goals, make vision boards, write about what you want to accomplish, etc. and then sit on your ass & expect change to happen. I know this all too well because that’s what I’ve been doing for the past few months. I sat around thinking about things I wanted and hoping they would just magically fall into my lap. Until I realized after months of ups & downs and overall repetitive disappointment that anything worth having takes WORK. So I let go of that wishful thinking that some magic unicorn fairy would come fling blessings into my lap and started to actually come up with goals for myself and start MOTIVATING myself to actually work for them. Motivation is fleeting and I don’t wake up every morning ready to put in all the effort all the time. But I remind myself of what I want and why I’m doing this and how good it’s gonna feel when I accomplish my goals and that re-inspires me over & over again.
So here are a few goals for September that I came up with! These are completely subjective/personal goals and it’s really important to focus on where you’re at in YOUR life and come up with goals that motivate you right NOW & are gonna help get you where you want to go.
- GIVE more.
It’s easy to get so caught up in your own life that you forget to give back to others and show the people you love that you care about them. Remember: what you give is what you get. Karma’s very real and you will feel way better when you’re making others a priority and remembering to give back.
- More intuitively eat & exercise.
I’m a huge advocate of intuitive eating > any sort of dieting or other “health” fads that go around the internet these days. I’m not the best at intuitive exercising though. I’m gonna make more of an effort to only move when my body feels like moving and in a way that relieves stress instead of causing it (by feeling like I HAVE to work out).
- More water! Less coffee & alcohol.
Dehydration is real guys.
- Take life less seriously & see everything on the lighter side.
Everything’s funny if you think about it. Quit the petty drama & live a little.
- Smile at everyone.
This is something everyone can do, every day, just to improve people’s days & your own. Spread the positive vibes y’all. 🙂
These are all pretty general so I’ll keep posted on how they go throughout the month. Later gators! ❤
