I Celebrated My Success
This past year has been my most internally and externally fruitful yet. I've purchased and read more books than I did the year before, I've been listening to podcasts on a weekly basis, and I've truly re-evaluated my relationship with food and exercise. I knew that making changes would be beneficial, but I didn't realize just how much simple changes would impact me.
For me, the focus on investing in myself — both internally and externally — really helped push me forward this year. Nothing felt like a chore, like I "had to lose" a certain number of pounds (for the record, I haven't weighed myself in eight months) or that I "had" to go to the gym, eat a certain thing, or read a particular type of book. The flexibility and kindness I allowed myself, paired with writing out my goals, helped me have one of my best years yet. With this momentum, next year is looking pretty great, too.
