Feels like just yesterday we said, “happy new year”. When a new year starts, the first couple of months are like trials for some of us. Ha!! You don’t really feel any difference until it hits you in the third or fourth month into the year. I thought I share three goals in my life that I’m working/progressing right now.
*** FITNESS ***
Living a healthy lifestyle has been a consistent journey since last year, but I would be lying if I say I always get it right. There are days that I can’t be bothered to eat healthy. If you’re a foodie like myself then you know the struggle of making the right choices when it comes to diet. Even days when I make a conscious decision to eat healthy, I fail miserably. Having said that, I don’t beat myself about it. I lift myself up and get it together. If yesterday was a big fail, I make sure I get it healthy and right the day after. Well it seems I did something right, because yesterday I got a great news when I went to the hospital for my routine check-up. I have dropped weight from 85kg to 79kg and I couldn’t be more proud.
*** DRIVE ***
If you’re a friend to this blog, then you know that learning how to drive has been a mission since forever. Lol!! I tell myself every year that I will learn and end up not doing it. It is not like I’m comfortable with taking public transport. Please don’t get me wrong, -there’s nothing wrong with using public transport. It is the annoying delays that pisses me off. The last thing you want to be doing on an early winter morning is wait on longggg for a bus. It breaks your spirit. Lol! So back on the matter, I took some lessons last year, but couldn’t complete it because I quitted my job. A single mother gotta prioritize. Ha!! By the grace of God I’m back to it. I’ve affirmed that this is the year of bringing this goal to fruition. Instead of manual, I’ve decided to switch to automatic which is less hustle. I can’t be bothered with manual to be honest. Wish me luck.
*** MINDSET ***
Lets be honest, it is hard to stay positive all the damn time! Life has a way of knocking you sideways and making one lose hope/confidence sometimes. Someone I listen to a lot is Joyce Meyer. Back in the days almost every sermon I heard from her had something about attitude. While I loved the messages, I never really understood why she always poked that word ‘attitude’. Well I get it now. Hans Selye framed it better when he said,
“Adopting the right attitude can convert a negative stress into a positive one.”
We were not promised a smooth life, but in everything if we’ve the right attitude, we will be stress-free and be victors. This is where I am now. Going through everything and anything with the grace of God and a good attitude.
Are you making any progress in your goals? Do share!
On my #outfitoftheday, this is a casual chic look I wore to run an errand with my son. I got the leather jacket and bag from a collaboration I did with The Broadway Bradford two years ago. The jacket is definitely a piece that I’ll be cherishing for a long time. Both ensemble are from river island and the quality is impeccable.
Thanks much for your visits and meaningful comments. Wishing you a lovely weekend.
