Taking Stock

Up in arms are my children that school will be starting again in less than a month. Where has the time gone? Where has this YEAR gone? I remember when the thought of the year 2015 seemed like some distant futuristic time where mankind would be living like The Jetsons. Yet here I am in the throws of life, a wife, a mother, a small business owner, a spiritualistic Christian (I could go on...). Here I sit a person who is spiraling towards 40 and still trying to figure life out. I am in some ways satisfied with where I am. Actively seeking wisdom and growth, I am open to the spiritual insights that I am convinced guide my path. However, I recognize I am a work in progress and forever will be. I guess that's sometimes hard to except... I will never arrive. I (we) must constantly grow, learn, and evolve. Therefore, it's the constant setting of goals, and working towards them that gives me a sense of accomplishment.

I had to sit down and take stock of those things that are currently important to me. Some of them are little things that lend to a higher quality of life than just existing. Others still are foundational, that will make me into the person I am meant to be. It's funny because some of the simplest things seem to be the hardest to achieve. As this year quickly approaches it's final quarter there are things that I want to be able to say that I am practitioner of. If I can roll into 2016 having accomplished them I will be ready to set new goals. I want to:

  • Eat delicious healthy food regularly
  • Drink strong wine that makes me smile and relax
  • Be able to receive/accept the love that is given to me from people in my life
  • Dispense unfettered love that is life changing to those I give it to
  • Find that line between spontaneity and discipline that expresses who I am/was when I was younger
  • Fine tune my business model for continual and added success
  • Continue to distance and eliminate people who refuse to operate in the best interest of our mutual relationship
  • Make passionate love that soothes my soul and brings me joy
  • Continue to cultivate fulfilling relationships with my friends and loved ones
  • Actively work on becoming a better mother
  • Be disciplined in my personal development
  • Be disciplined in taking time to relax and or have fun so that I can have an enjoyable quality of life
I feel as if I can do all of those things regularly, 2015 will have been a great year. I know a list like this will look different to everyone. I wonder if you have done the same thing. I wonder what others find important. I guess what's paramount is that anyone actively trying to live their best life actually set goals and then find a systematic way of achieving them. I wish all of you a life worth living, and a live well lived. Peace and love my friends xoxo.
