2020 really taught me a lot. If you have no idea what Im talking about have a read of Cya 2020, Hello 2021.
Whilst my usual goals would be hung around things I wanted to achieve physically, my brain has shifted a level. Im feeling a lot more realistic with the thoughts and goals I set for myself.
Goals can be something that people are fearful of. The impending doom of not reaching a certain goal that has been set can create a sense of failure. Whilst this is something Ive dealt with in the past, being able to look at the other shift around me is something I’m grateful for.
Although many are feeling the lull already of 2021, I’m excited for what its going to bring to the table. I want to make the most of the year in the situation we are in. Work towards the goals that I set and grow into them.
And if that means throwing on a good amount of fake tan, putting on some fancy clothes and sitting at my dining room table, so be it. But we are going to live, we are going to reach those highs and plummet to the lows and learn everything there is in between. Enough sop from me time to get those goals laid out for everyone to see.
Live for Now
A super important one for me. Something 2020 taught me but something I want 2021 to really prove. Im a total over planner, I like to know what’s happening when. And whilst ill never stop planning and making decisions. Im a true virgo at heart. I want to learn to live with the changes that can happen. If the original plan of having a cosy Sunday doesn’t happen and I end up out walking for hours. Its OK. I plan far too forward into my life, which isn’t always a bad thing but when those things change of things don’t quiet go to the original plan I really struggle to deal with it.
Love my Body
When I look back at all my goals for the the beginning of years, diet and fitness feature heavy. Whilst there is a little bit of me that does want to lose some weight and tone. I honestly just want to love the body I have. After things that happened in 2020 Ive learnt how amazing our bodies are. So in a nut shell yes I’m eating healthy and I’ve upped my exercise. However this isn’t only for the physical results this is to help my body live in a healthier way. There still be the odd indulge on all the chocolate, take away and when we eventually can meals out. But I want to fill my body with the good stuff.
And whilst doing this I want to appreciate how I look, nobody will ever be totally happy with how they look but I just want to embrace it. The things I hate on my body will be things that someone else wishes they had. So lets learn to love every angle of our body. This is probably going to be one of the harder ones for me but with time Im sure we will get there.
Whilst I can say that I very often think how lucky I am. I definitely take a lot for granted. It makes me feel a little awful writing that but its the truth. I want to walk out of 2021 being able to feel grateful for what has happened in 2021, the memories, the physical objects and the moments that I got to live in 2021. Its far to easy to wish you were doing something else, had something else or feel jealous of a life someone else is leading. But you don’t know there back story, you don’t know what it took for them to get that position, the sacrifices they’ve made along the way. Or the choice someone else has made to be happy with what they have in life. Im making a conscious effort to take more time out and actually write down things I’m grateful for. This can be as little or huge as your feeling, some days Im literally grateful for my coffee machine other days its the important people around me.
Id love to hear your 2021 goals, or if your not setting goals for the year are there things you’d like to be able to tick off in 2021.
Let get to the end of 2021 and feel accomplished, love 2021 and everything it has in store for us.
