I have never really been into the new year. I never saw it as an opportunity to “change” I honestly just saw it as another day, but this year feels different. So very, very different.
Maybe because I am married? Maybe because I am realizing “THIS IS MY LIFE”, if I want to see changes in it, then I must change. I also want to make sure that if my time on this world goes by a little faster than expected (i.e. I die), that I was trying to better myself, and was proud of where I was going and how I was transforming.
I actually feel this strong obligation to make sure I am improving myself as a person. So I want to have seven themed goals, and every day of the week (Inshallah), I want to act on one of the themes. So what are my themes for each day:
On Mondays I want to act Intentionally.
On Tuesdays I want to make sure I have done just one act of Kindness.
On Wednesdays I want to make sure I am being kind to my Body.
On Thursdays I want to Connect with a friend.
On Fridays I want to make sure I make my husband feel Special.
On Saturdays I want to get Organized.
On Sundays I want to do an act of Rest and Recharge spiritually.
In an ideal world I am able to act on all of my goals EVERY SINGLE DAY, but like all things in life, you have to start off slowly. So for me, making sure that I follow through with JUST one themed goal on any of the given day, is easy and from there, hopefully, incorporating the other goals will be effortless. I recently heard a beauty guru say something that I absolutely loved – she said, she just wants to compare herself to who she was yesterday and make sure she is improving herself to her yesterday self. #YasminKavari
I can do that – that is easy.
My theme for the year is my Monday theme – which is to “act intentionally“.
My professional goal this year is to be “detail oriented“.
Over the new few weeks, I’ll share about what each of the above mentioned themes mean to me, however in the meanwhile, I would LOVE to hear what your themes are for the new year!
Lots of love, light and happiness.
