It's almost the end of 2018 and our team's challenge this weekend was to write a letter of love to ourselves. I hate these kinds of assignments as they seem so corny - but knowing that it's good to get out of my comfort zone I decided it was worth the effort. Since another challenge was to post a blog entry and share, here is my letter
A little less than a year ago, I wrote my goals for 2018 and most of these – by far more than in past years – have been realized. I’m really proud of that! Changes for me in the last year:
• The biggest change was leaving my job and becoming a consultant. It was risky but has been a very fulfilling change. I left a team that was unhealthy and made me frustrated and doubting my self-worth. I now am part of a team and work that gives me support, challenges, and I’m continually feeling reinforced. My clients appreciate me every day. The work is lucrative as well, so we feel good about taking time off, traveling and continuing to be generous with Kai and Sara.
• I’ve dropped 5#. Though I’d rather create another 5# drop, at least I finally made that progress after several years of plateauing.
• I added in consistent meditation, yoga and strength and am doing better while traveling.
• My relationships with all my family and friends are really positive. Two of the biggest positive changes were with Bruce and Kaili.
I feel strong, healthy and happy. Yes, I have more to do and I can continue to work on my patience and listening to others more deeply; my discipline to be healthy in a more consistent way; and my ways to destress, sleep better and relax. But I’ve come a long way and should take this time to pause and celebrate.
I will plan a “should-less” day in December!
