I created a pinterest account last week. 1,000+ pins and 21 boards later and I’m currently looking for a rehab center. Know a fancy center with no pins in sight? I am having way too much fun creating a pinterest world. My house is getting cozy, my kitchen is well stocked, my walk-in closet holds beautiful clothes, and I have a pretty impressive workout routine down. Some boards I’m thinking of adding are: a boyfriend board – the wedding is already planned, a closet for him – he will be very well dressed, a baby board, and a DIY board – for the extension we are going add outback.
If you have a pinterest account link it below, I need to get my hands on more pins.
The opportunities i have had
The chance to go to university
The chance to travel the world
The memories with my grandpa
A warm and welcoming home
Inspiring parents that i grew up looking up to
People that touched my life in more ways than i could have ever imagined
Peace in my life
It has been a while! I feel guilty for neglecting the blog so soon after i started it. Spring semester has been rough. To be honest things are only going to get crazier after spring break, but i want to do my best. I am re-motivated to focus on my health goals. I worked out almost everyday for the last couple of weeks which feels great! I’m trying new things that i will probably post about soon. I don’t want to create unrealistic posting goals for myself so i’ll be back when i can 🙂
The prompt for week 3 of project 52 is to list the things i should be proud of.
- Graduating HighSchool
- Working on my undergraduate degree
- Being part of national conference
- Pursuing my goals
- Learning who i am and who i want to be
- Being compassionate and understanding
- Being a daughter, sister, and a friend
- Standing up for what i think
- Cutting out people that don’t belong in my life
- Forgiving who have hurt me and moving on
I have been working out a lot more recently as part of my Good Habits Challenge and 2013 fitness goals. I usually follow along to a work-out video or follow the instructions on an app, but some days i’m really just not feeling it at all. On those days i make my way to the treadmill. It is one of the most boring exercise machines, but sometimes that is exactly what i need. It frees my mind to contemplate life . On one side of my treadmill there is a cup-holder and on the other side there is a bigger oddly shaped compartment that i never figured out what it was supposed to accommodate. I never discovered its real purpose, but i found something that fits perfectly. My new ipad mini fits the mysterious compartment so well you would think it was made for it – it wasn’t, the treadmill is years old. I like to watch movies while i’m walking on the treadmill. Most of the shows i watch i mentioned in my top tv shows post plus a few more recent ones. TV shows are a great distraction, by the end of the episode i enjoyed some tv and had a workout.
I think i’m currently seeking contentment in my life. I am content with how my life is right now. Even small changes scare me. I have a very inflexible comfort zone. How do i start seeking excitement in my life? I want to step outside my comfort zone. I want to push my limits. As i wrote previously i want to be stronger in 2013. There are a few opportunities headed my way and all i want to do is to say no and go on my merry way. I am trying to push my self. To think about how it would feel after, being able to say “yes, i did that”. I don’t want to look back and have a life filled with what ifs and regrets.
Most people around me assume that a perfectionist is someone that does everything perfectly. I’d say that would be a dream come true. In reality there are very few things i can do “perfectly”. Being a perfectionist places impossibly highe expectations on my self. If i know that i would never be able to meet my personal standards i would rather not even try. I create impossible expectations that set myself up for failure and frustration. I want to be strong enough to try anyway. I want to be forgiving to myself when i come short of my expectations. Being terrified of even trying is probably the biggest obstacle standing between me and my goals.
This year i want to:
- Say yes to opportunities offered to me
- Stop second guessing my self every step of the way
- Realize that i am more than capable of accomplishing anything i set my mind to
- Never regret when things go wrong
