As I write this message, Itâ€™s Monday and NEW YEARâ€™S DAY â€” Could be viewed as the ROUGHEST Monday, with NYE, right?
Many of us are either recovering from last night, planning our goals for 2018, or both.Â
Iâ€™m doing both. 🙂
Iâ€™m super proud I got my first 2018 workout in with JOY.Â Yes, crazy, WITH JOY!Â Itâ€™s because I no longer look at fitness as a chore or a â€œI have to do itâ€ activity.Â I ENJOY spending that time on my mind, body and soul and this has been one of the BIGGEST successes for me in 2017.
Todayâ€™s workout was a TRIPLE AAA: Arms, Abs, and A$$Â !Â
It was very fitting, because as I was working out, I was thinking of our â€œGet All A’sâ€ message ::Â Discovering Self-Acceptance, Appreciation, and Personal Achievementâ€¦. (AAA).
So now that 2017 is behind us, here are my answers to my Aâ€™s in recap.
1. What have Iâ€™ve accepted within my life, physically and/or mentally?Â Additionally, what am IÂ still working on accepting? Now, weâ€™re not talking about resignation, rather stepping into, embraced, and owned.
Iâ€™ve learned to accept my joy, happiness, passions, wants and needs as mine.Â With no fear, no care of judgement.Â I will create my magic with my husband of course.Â I continue to accept that my path will never be the same as anybody else.Â My mind, body, and soul will dance to its own rhythm.Â Iâ€™m still working on accepting more laughter into my life. I tend to work hard, and make it a daily goal to remember to laugh.. silly right? Itâ€™s truth.
2. What have Iâ€™ve learned to appreciate about myself and/or within my life, physically and mentally?Â On the other handÂ OR in contrast,Â are there elements of who I am that iâ€™m still working onÂ appreciating?
Oh I appreciate so many of you, so many have touched my life both personally and professionally. I appreciate my dedication, determination, drive, passion, and love for life.Â I appreciate my ENERGY and the ability to ignite it under any circumstance. I appreciate my body, one year ago I couldnâ€™t lift a vacuums, my children or put my own pants on because of a lower back injuryâ€¦ I plan to never take my body for granted againâ€¦.
3. What is one of your most rewarding achievements in 2017? Not onlyÂ what makes ME most proudÂ but alsoÂ share theÂ goals and dreams that you still have.
I am most proud of raising kind children and hope they continue on that path of kindness. Iâ€™m proud of the communication Iâ€™ve built with my husband, far from perfect, but the best yet. Iâ€™m eager to reach my 2018 goals of publishing my next book, hosting more empowering workshops, start the process of building a home and making it to VEGAS with my hubby 🙂
