This morning I was reading one of my favorite blogs called Mind Body Green, and came across an article about checking in with yourself during this first day of summer, and evaluating how your goals are going for the year.
I’ve had a lot of epiphanies lately, so I thought it would be a good time to check in, by answering the questions in the blog I read:
How has the start of summer made you thirsty for your greatest happiness?
I’m a warm weather, summer type of girl. It’s hotter and I wear less clothing, which makes me feel light. I want to feel “light” metaphorically as well. That idea of lightness coincides with me being happy.
What new steps are you taking that are really important to you?
Aside from better money management, I’m trying to be less serious and have more fun. As I said above, I’m trying to lighten up. I’m also continuing to focus on exercise and good health, and minimizing stress by doing yoga and meditation.
What are you nurturing that really matters to you?
I’m nurturing my health and well-being most of all. Without that, I don’t feel complete. That has always been first and foremost in my book.
What are you doing to stay creative?
Well I have a creative job already, but I’m getting my business blog redesigned (by Andrea @ Nuts & Bolts Media), and doing a lot of writing of course. I’m also trying to find fun and creative ways to be social, yet frugal.
What are you excited about right now?
The possibility of a full- time job with my old boss at essentially my old company.
Where are you growing?
Emotionally I hope. (and hopefully my bank account soon-lol!) I want to move into this more confident, calm, soft, fun
girl woman sexy goddess.
What 3 things are you fired up to do this summer?
I’m fired up to run longer distances, play better beach volleyball, and get a full-time job.
What role does imagination have in your life?
HUGE role! I’m very imaginative. Growing up my teachers used to complain to my parents that I was a daydreamer. I still am. That’s one of my favorite parts about myself. By the way that has a dark side too, as I have also sometimes imagined the worst in a situation without it necessarily being true or not.
