I am officially in my 28th year of life and birthdays, for me, have always been a perfect time of reflection. Where am I currently? Am I happy? Do I wake up feeling fulfilled? What am I looking forward to? It can become very stressful to ask yourself these questions but without discomfort there can be no growth.
I set out so many goals for this year that I quickly became overwhelmed. It’s only January and I already feel like I’m falling behind. I sat with myself for a while after and decided that it’s also important to have a goal to live in the moment and goals are just that, goals. They are set to be something to strive for and not a certainty.
I wake up everyday and make my bed. That is enough to be proud of right now. (Thank you Mari Kondo, but I am not throwing out my books)
