Exactly one year ago today, this was my post:

“As I move into my thirty-fifth year, I have a similar feeling in the sense that I guess my vision for what my life would look like is completely different from what it actually looks like.  Not a disappointment, my life is filled with so much joy and amazing things, but just different.

So that leaves me with the obvious.  Again, I am not the quickest on the whole obvious thing…

 It is time for me to redefine my vision.

How is it that when our lives are constantly changing minute to minute,  that our visions for ourselves seem to remain unchanged in some areas of our lives?

When I think about my idea of what I thought my life would look like, or even what I would look like, I realize that it is so outdated.  It is like a 1980’s vision that is totally out of style (although we all know the 80’s are coming back!).  But you get the idea…

So my goal for this year?

To stop being so hard on myself.

To redefine my vision.  For my life and for myself.

To be where I am, right now.

To never lose sight of all the amazing joy that I have in my life and appreciate every single moment, or at least every day.

Today is my day.  I am officially rounding the corner and well into my thirties…now when you round-up, I am closer to 40 than thirty.”

I thought today would be a good day to evaluate my year.  Have I achieved my goals?

  • As I sit today, my goal is to be patient, to find the right opportunity to express my purpose and to focus on being healthy.    check that one off the list…
  • I am still pretty hard on myself… enough said on that.
  • I definitely have kept close within my viewpoint the fact that I have so much joy in my life and appreciate it daily.  Check…
  • Living completely in the present and in the now… nope. 

So, I have come a long way and I still have some work to do!!

It is so awesome to be able to see where I was one year ago and how things have evolved…  

Now I am really over the hump and well on my way…

Watch out!  Forty, here I come…

Have you taken the time to re-define your vision lately?
