I’m fed up with making excuses. Tired of being tired. Frustrated by the fact that I’m one of those people who is “full of potential”…. unrealised potential. It’s high time to shake things up! And because I’m far too impatient to wait for January to arrive, I’m setting myself some end-of-year resolutions instead.
These resolutions will put me on a pathway towards positivity faster than a genetically-modified speeding rabbit, bred with a panther, and strapped to turbines. What does this look like? See for yourself…
Tonight is a turning point. It’s not a fancy date in the calendar, granted. But it is important to me. Tonight I am chatting with the inspirational Rebecca Campbell. In time, I’m hoping she’ll be my soul-mentor. I know that this conversation is going to kickstart some good things. Someday soon I’m going to get back to my roots – my spiritual ones. I have lost my mojo, but now it’s time to send out the search party.
Here is a list of my awesome end-of year-resolutions.
I have two of these. The first, to get my brilliant book ‘Terri’s Favourite Things’ published (ahem, self-promotion is so cool. PS. If you want a copy and happen to be an international publishing house, just drop me a line!)
The second is to grow this thing. This blog thing that you are reading right now and undoubtedly loving. Don’t deny it. Instead, SHARE IT. Tell your friends. Subscribe. Give me some cyber loving, people!
This is my meditation/affirmations/soul section. This is where I need Rebecca’s professional guidance and advice. Stay tuned; following our call I will share her pearls wisdom, and set myself a project accordingly.
Physical Health project
It’s oh-so-simple. I must exercise for 4 hours a week. This might sound easy. But it isn’t. I am a mother of two. I have meals to cook, children to raise, a house to clean, rah rah rah. Fitting in some Pilates and cycling and running and weights isn’t going to be easy. This is the toughest of my list so far. But I’m going give it a darn good shot.
Part of my health project includes a gut-health component. Researchers are starting to find links between the billions of gut micro biome inside us and our overall health. Said to influence everything from our inflammatory responses, right through to our mental health, these teeny tiny microscopic gut thingees seem more powerful than I would have ever imagined. So I’m going to try something like the Supercharged Foods diet to “heal my gut” and, by default (I hope), ease my anxiety.
Stay tuned! I’m going to publish my Merry Marriage project very soon (just in time for Xmas)
Mental health project
All of the above is a mental health project of sorts. These tasks are not about me as a mother; they are about ME and what makes ME tick. Selfish? Maybe. But about time I get a little into myself again. Turns out I’m a much happier person to be around when I am happy on the inside, and that benefits all of my family.
I am estimating these tasks will require 10-12 solid hours of investment. That’s a tiny 1/14th of my week. Surely, even sleep-deprived, cranky old me can manage to find that much time to myself?!
So why wait until January? Come up with a list of your own awesome end-of-year resolutions and share them with me. Let’s end 2014 the way we wished it had begun.
