The holidays are here and so is the spirit of love, reflection, gratitude and giving. I feel very thankful to be where I am today and for the life that I have. I am excited about new projects and ideas that I have planned up my sleeve. I am changing things up a little bit. This year I really made an effort to reach out online and connect with more like minded people. I have found wonderful communities, created a youtube account, began a blog, and started having a website designed. I hope to have it up and running in the next couple months.
I had many goals this year & I shared them on gaia. Now, I am reflecting and enjoying my growth this past year, along with creating new improvements in my life.
Nutrition Goals 2008
I did pretty good. I made excellent efforts at going raw and shared some of my experiences on youtube. I understand the power of greens in the diet. I am much more aware of emotional eating patterns. I want to heal my thyroid.
I am seriously interested in experimenting with the 80/10/10 diet and I plan on posting videos on a purification program as well. I want to eat more from my garden. :)
Fitness 2008 Goals
Through training for a triathlon I found myself a bit uninterested. Initially, I was excited with the thought, but when it came down to it, I just didn't love running, biking and swimming laps. So, after some reflecting I rediscovered my passion for dancing and started taking dance classes in hip hop and Latin. I realize I have always loved to dance and I kind of forgot about it when I was training at the gym. As I child I loved to dance, as a teen I loved to dance, as a young adult I was an exotic dancer and I loved going out to clubs and shakin' my thang 'til 2 am. When I lived in Hawaii I took up swing dancing. So, I am thankful to be reconnecting to dancing. I have been working out very regularly( sometimes 6 times a week) since August including yoga once or twice a week, which is another activity I enjoy.
I never did create that home studio that I mentioned last year. The other night I envisioned creating my studio in my formal dining room. It rarely is used and so I thought I could clear out the table and set up a bar, pole, mirror and cool lighting. I could do all my training, dancing and yoga very conveniently. It could also be a "set" for upcoming videos. Snowboarding season is here and of course I am going to enjoy that. Last summer I didn't surf at all, mostly because I felt insecure with my body, this year I want to get out on those waves!
Career Goals 2008
I took a bit of a shift in my goals and moved more towards growing online and creating passive forms and multiple streams of income. Technically, I have published my writings via blogs. last year I did have a 12 week optimal health challenge that I look forward to improving on this year.
I want my website Inspire2Act.com up and running with awesome content! I also want to be consistent with videos, blogs, and articles. I want a business that can be accessed anywhere in the world. Who wants to be limited by geography? I want to inspire unlimited potential! I want to share more of my life, be a living example, and pass along gems I have learned in my life. I have received some excellent feedback and I am expanding my videos and blogs. I am bringing more consistency and organization to what I want to share with the world. I have so many interests and aspects to my life I decided to open the door to more of my life.
Relationship Goals 2008
I have met some amazing people this year in person and online. Some of my role models and many people whom I admire. I see a shift in the people I interact with and I am pleased with whom I am now attracting. I have a wonderful relationship with my children and I have even made an effort to reconnect with their father. While we are not romantic partners it is wonderful to understand each other better and to be able to be a team in raising our kids. I still have not entered a romantic relationship and honestly the more time goes by the more awkward I feel when men give me attention. I realized that I have not created room for a man to enter my life. I am considering sharing this experience on video as well. However, I have not decided completely.
I am allowing a wonderful man to enter my life and share experiences with. I want to maintain my independence and remember past learning lessons. I want him to be a part of my life, not my reason for existence. I want us to synergize and be on the same page. I be able to say the to him what I learned from Abraham & Esther Hicks on non attachment. I want to enjoy his strengths.
I really didn't experience much of a change in this department. It just wasn't a focus. I realize now that money coming into my life is merely a token of what I have contributed and given. Therefore, I must have been stingy with my knowledge and experience.
I am going to take better care into recording and documenting my financial growth, as well as becoming a more conscious consumer. I want to share more with others in a more global fashion (via the web) and set up a strong financial foundation.
