If you’re just joining me for the first time, I’ve got a list of 10 Major Goals I want to accomplish before I turn 40 in 2016. That’s what I refer to as my Life Worth Living; it’s a DBT thing. If you don’t want to stay stuck where you’ve been in life, you have to figure out where you want to go and what it would take to truly make your life worth living.
Every week I do a Creative, Stress Management, Health, and Financial goal that tie back to my Building a Life Worth Living project. I’ve also added a Simplifying goal that ties into my plan to declutter my life this year. Bit by bit I’m reaching for the stars.
Update from last week:
Creative: I will get that black and white vest finished before starting or going back to anything else. Almost. I have the whole outer edge done I just need to do the armholes. Hopefully tomorrow night.
Stress Management: Continue walking on the treadmill as often as possible, at least 3 sessions of 20 minutes minimum. I lost track of how many times, but it was at least 3. So yay!
Health: I will figure out how to easily add my food intake in the Fitbit tracking app. Oh I figured it out just fine, and learned that I’m really mostly lazy. Doh!
Financial: Friday is payday for both of us so it’ll be time to pay the piper. Until then I need to minimize how much goes out. I did really pretty good with this.
Simplify: One of the tasks on my list is to make another go through my jewelry armoire, so that’s up for this week. Done!
Creative: I need to start, and keep, cranking away at my 28 Day Challenge projects.
Stress Management: Continue walking on the treadmill as often as possible, at least 5 sessions of 15 minutes minimum.
Health: I’m going to focus on my skin this week, primarily my hands and feet. Because I wear sandals so much my heels are trashed. And my hands are usually all dried out and cracked as well. I’ve found some stuff for my heels that I put on before bed and then yesterday I gave in and got a jar of coconut oil. I’ve been having so much trouble again with everything else that I figured it was worth a shot. It absorbed right in and smelled great. So I need to do my hands and feet and every night before bed.
Financial: The bills for all of Josh’s medical stuff will likely start rolling in any day now, so I need to get back to pretending I’m super poor and stop thinking I really need new shoes and more Legos.
Simplify: We did a tiny bit of purging at home this weekend and I brought a few pieces home from my office, mostly because I’m getting a new adjustable desktop thing that will allow me to work standing up and I didn’t figure it would be a good idea to have things hanging on the wall behind that. Anyway, I’d like to keep trying to streamline things a bit.
