Relationship Goals

Though I am still figuring out the details of what I want, here are some things that I do know I'd like to have in my ideal relationship. Can you say #RelationshipGoals?

Life at Forty

If you had asked me, as a child, what my life would look like at 40, I would have had absolutely no clue. That was too far away for me to visualize. If you had asked me at 20, I would have been 100% sure that I would be married with children and a solid career. If you had asked me at 30, I would have been pretty sure that I would be married with children and maybe consulting or something with a lot of travel. If you had asked me at 35 where I would be at 40, I...

A (big) change is coming, baby

A more comprehensive update will follow soon, but I have been working on the ideas I laid out in my last post. I have managed to touch on most areas, except probably Friends & Family and Fun  Recreation. But more to come on that. Today’s update will focus on the Career section. The first sub-area of Personal Productivity is still very much a work in progress. Without really setting up formal systems, I have managed to start finding hacks that work for me to get through my backlog. There is still room for improvement where new items are concerned but...

Laying the foundation for 2015

Each year, as I review the previous 12 months, I identify what didn’t work. My theme for the coming year often reflects this as I aim to correct the issues and fill in the gaps. As I have said, 2014 was, for me, directionless. I had no theme, no goals, no real plan – and the path it took showed how crucial this was. I floated along and went wherever life took me. Now while there is a certain freedom to allowing fate to take hold, I much prefer having some say in where my life goes. This year’s theme,...

The circle of life

Nearly a month has passed since I declared 2015 to be the Year of Foundation. The next step was to identify my focus areas and start the goal-planning process. Admittedly, I kept putting that off. If I set goals then I would have to actually start to do something, and although not doing anything (as was the case for most of 2014) has not worked well for me, I was in a groove (or should we say rut?). But I can’t put it off much longer. The end of the calendar year approaches. And 2015 has to be different. I...

Happy New Year to Me!

[Confession: I sat down and wrote this post a week ago and WordPress ate it. No explanation, it just vanished into cyberspace without me being able to publish it. It took me a week to work up the energy to write it again, and it has lost something. Still worth a read, though.] As I mentioned before, 2014 has been an incredibly difficult year. I have found myself wishing it would just get it over with so I could start with a new, fresh year. Bring on the 2015. As it turns out, the year is almost over. Usually at...

The end is near

I don’t even know how it’s possible that 2014 is nearly over. I won’t pretend that I’m not happy. 2014 has been a ridiculously difficult year. But now there’s only 3 months left. So what’s a girl to do besides figure out how to get through the next 3 months. For several years, I have set myself goals for each year, usually within a theme. 2013 was the year of Abundance, 2012 was the year of Authenticity and 2011 the year of Movement. This way I avoided the trap of resolutions which were always tossed aside before January was out....

You never know till you try

Sometimes when we are trying to learn something, we focus on the small steps, the little bits and pieces that will get us to the grand goal. But sometimes we need to shake things up, and try something bold. Try something that sounds nearly impossible and definitely out of reach.

Why you need to nurture your support system

Whether you like large social groups, have lots of friends or stay close to only a few people, you have a support system. Humans are social beings. They were not actually meant to be alone. One of my goals for this year was to foster healthy relationships with friends, colleagues, and family. So here's to a renewed focus on the people I surround myself with!
