I know it has been quite a long time since I have posted anything, but this has been for good reason, my husband and I just moved across the country! While a potential move had been in the works for a bit, the actual move happened rather quickly – with less than a 2 week notice – since my husband (Joe) is actually keeping his job in NYC. This does change our travel plans a bit for the year, but is great news overall. Joe and I are originally from California, but we lived on the east coast for 9 years, so it has been huge transition for us coming back “home”.
This weekend was my birthday, which is a day I absolutely love for many reasons. The thing I love most about my birthday is really treating it as a day of reflection and a celebration of life. Each year, I write down my goals for the year and monitor them throughout the year, including a mid year check in. In general, I do my intention and goal setting in January, but I do also have age/ birthday related goals every year too. So this year as I reflect on the past year, I thought I would share my goals with you. All of which are part of my journey through this “adult gap year”.
As I look back on my 33rd trip around the sun, I look back with nothing but extreme gratitude. I am so thankful to be the happiest and healthiest I have ever been (Mind, Body and Soul). I can’t wait for what is in store for the next year as we build our home and new life in San Francisco.
2018 Goals: A few notes on this: I do have a few more goals not listed below, and I also have more descriptive and specific goals within these buckets. This way I can measure my progress. I try to keep quantity under 10, and keep the BHAGS (big hairy audacious goals) to 1-2.
