2017, I lost.
2018, I fell apart.
2019, I rebuilt.
2020, I focus.
I started writing a recap of 2019, but it felt redundant, so I’m going to look forward instead.
I used to write resolution/goal posts that were entirely achievement-based, but I want to focus instead on how things make me feel. (Something I wrote here on using intrinsic motivation to help you meet your goals.)
I’m beginning grad school next week (eep!), and this is my number one priority for the next two years. I want to get as much out of this experience as possible, and soak in as much as I can so that I can become the best therapist I can be for my future clients.
And so I want to live my life with intention. I’ll be much more busy than I’ve been in a while, but I don’t want to live my life on auto-pilot like I did in NYC. I need to keep up my self-care in order to really be present in my life. And so I need to be careful about not trying to do All the Things so that I can achieve this. I had been thinking about starting up my podcast again, but I have no idea what it will be like to be back in school, and so I don’t need to add something else back on my plate when I will still be working, too.
As I wrote on Instagram, I also want to be open to love and be open-hearted. I’m not getting any younger, and I would love to meet someone.
What I want to let go of: COMPARISON. I’ve had a nasty case of jealousy and comparing myself to others the past few years, and clearly it has done nothing to serve me.
What about you? What are you focusing on? What are you letting go of?
