-Married and reconnecting with friends and family due to moving closer. A whole new appreciation for relationships and emotional health.
-It’s important and I know I’m effective but its not all of me. There’s more to life than this and I have meaningful work that will hopefully also let me be comfortable financially but cannot define me.
Not stopping now, when the doors are opening and I’m learning so much! 13 months ago
This goal def. needs an update. I’ve kind of let it molder b/c I never thought I would reach it but I have one year left in my twenties. and I suppose what is most on my mind is what do I want to accomplish in this last year. What can I do that will make entering the 30s easier for me.
I suppose the question start with …what is important to me?
-My work (school and patients)
-My growth – thinking/reading/changing/seeing things in a new way
So far what have I done towards these areas in my final year:
-Working to build a new married life with my husband – regular and daily, difficult but worth it, scary and challenging but loving
-I see the light at the end of the tunnel so I have placed this on as a 43 things goal and following it regularly in bootcamp. Also, trying to do this while keeping balance in mind.
-Identified some things that can change (like gentle self-talk) but also things that have changed (work ethic and self-punitive) but i see lots of room for growth and will keep going
-I have found lots of new creative outlets and I feel like that side of me is really taking shape. I have travelled recently and I always feel that that is broadening to your thinking and provides significant mindfulness
: less criticism of others, I have high standards and not everyone can/will meet them, including myself
: More openess to new experiences, not waiting until designated ‘traveling’ to try new things
: Being present for life’s pleasures (mindfully)
Now have to percolate on how to concretize these areas of focus 22 months ago
