The First Step Is A Well Mind.

Hello friends, I hope everyone is having an amazing Sunday! In my last entry, I talked about things I learned in 2017 and how I want to focus on remaining in a peaceful and positive for 2018 and beyond. Since then, I have been participating in a project called “Love Your Life In 30 Days” and sharing each entry on social media. On Day 1, the project asks that I make a list of 5 areas of my life that I want to transform. Although I listed 5 areas in need of improvement, I realize that I truly only need to focus on one: inner peace.

As I have gotten older, I have started to become aware of how much I get caught up in the past and let me tell you: it definitely does not leave me feeling peaceful. Why do we do this to ourselves? It’s not as if thinking about dumb decisions and close-calls is going to help our present life situations..silly humans. I am constantly reminding myself that if I can’t do anything about it, then I need to stop spending so much time thinking about it. Sometimes it helps, but most of the time I find myself right back on memory lane not even 5 minutes later.

It’s time to end the cycle. Mental health and physical health are one in the same, this much I have come to know. Now is the time to start taking small steps that lead to a healthier lifestyle.

In lieu of all things health-related, here are some of my main areas of focus:

♦I am cutting sugar out of my diet.

This is pretty challenging because there is sugar in everything!! Especially alcohol, so I cut that out first. Not for good, just until I can establish consistency in my diet. And during these cold months of Winter, I don’t need anything adding to my weather-induced laziness. I am also trying to stay on a low sugar/ low carb meal plan. I actually really enjoy eating healthy food, but after being in hardcore hibernation-mode, who the hell wants to eat a salad?!

♦I want to will do at least 15 minutes of yoga every morning.

By NO means do I think that I am “old” but I can definitely feel years of stress making my body stiff and I’m OVER it. Every time I stretch for just a few minutes, I feel amazing… therefore, it needs to be more of a priority in my daily routine.

♦I want HAVE to end negative thought patterns.

This one is pretty important to me. I cannot continue to fall down the rabbit hole of shitty things that have happened in my life. It’s unquestionably pointless and stale. This also includes self doubt and having a negative self-image of my body, it’s got to go. Enough said.

♦I want to will take more time to work on my body.

I’m talking about everything from creating a weekly skin care routine to consistently working out 5 days a week. Working from home has made me SO lazy… I want that to change STAT.

♦I will expand my realm of creativity.

It’s all too easy to get stuck creating the same art over and over again. I want to focus on using new techniques and finding inspiration from fresh sources as well as finally using art supplies that I have been hoarding for years.

This year has started out with me being in a fantastic place both mentally and spiritually. I know what I need to do and I feel ready to make it happen and for that, I am incredibly proud of myself. I’m manifesting motivation and will power this year… something I have needed for a long time and I can already feel the magic working in so many areas of my day-to-day life.

Here’s to love, life and the power of positivity.


These are my posts from the first week of the Love Your Life In 30 Days project…
