I read somewhere that January is really a practice month and that the year officially starts in February. So, since January is almost over…yeah, I’m going with that.
It was suggested that I make 2016 my year of discipline — to bring to fruition the various talents, goals, and projects that have been incubating in my head. I accept.
While it may seem like I’m off to a late start, I’m not. I had some mental sorting to do. But through this process, I discovered that writing will help get it out of my head and make it easier to track my *actual* progress. So I write.
Discipline vs. Stress
I’ve always viewed stress as an external force. But I am learning that much of what I consider “stress” in very much within my control. It depends very much on my input/output.
- Mental & Spiritual – People tend to think negatively, so I’ve started a program of meditation and affirmations. Also, I am more conscience of what I send out into the universe. It listens and responds in-kind.
- Physical – I’m changing what I eat. If it makes me feel crappy, it’s off the menu! I’ve also reignited my passion for yoga. I feel stronger every day!!
- Financial – Money has always been a difficult subject for me, but I am determined to work passed this issue using all the tools at my disposal.
So there you have it. I don’t expect to have it all figured out by December, but I will make significant strides. And of course, I will have a lot of fun along the way!!
