This one is personal, just warning you!
I was just thinking about 2014, and what I've learned, and what I want to change, and what I want to keep the same...specifically in relation to The Elementary Professor.
One thing I realized is that I sabotage myself a lot. Fitting in with my One Little Word this year, (Thrive) I will stop doing that. I've been thinking about this for a few weeks and I realize that I do a lot of things to wreck my own success because down deep there's a part of me that thinks I don't deserve it. I'm working on that inner voice this year. It's at the root of a lot things in my life. ;)
The Elementary Professor has been successful! I've been happy about that, and again, neglecting it and sabotaging my own success. I also am quite a bit of a perfectionist, which sabotages my success as well (as backward as that sounds, it's true).
So this year:
-I'm celebrating success, and not being afraid of it, thriving in every area of my life.
-I'm going to thrive in my health by getting stronger and exercising. I don't have weight loss goals here, I'm trusting that any movement is better than no movement, so my goal is to keep moving. That's it. That simple.
-I'm adding more vegetables to my diet. I already like and eat vegetables, but I also need to add more and make sure my family eats more. I started a cookbook a while ago with better vegetable recipes and ways to add vegetables into things I'm already making. I'm going to continue writing that.
-I'm allowing myself to be successful with TPT. It's been a blessing in my life. I love doing it. It fills a void in our finances and in my relationship with my career. I won't be afraid of more success here. And there's absolutely no reason to be afraid of failure.
-I'm simplifying. I'm getting rid of stuff, cutting out stuff, and focusing on the main important parts of my life: my family, our health, spiritual life, career, and enjoying myself in each of these things.
I feel like this post was disjointed. That truthfully reflects my brain at the start of this year, so I'm going to leave it that way. ;)
From my family to yours, Happy New Year!
