I’ve lived too long with the notion that I have to do it all and be it all. The expectations I had for myself in my personal and business life were literally sucking the life out of me. It all came to a head a little while back. I was not only mentally and physically drained but I was also sick of the mundane. So I cried for a long time.. Slept even longer. Threw an entire party just for one – me – surrounded by pity.
A few days went by, I found myself sitting outside soaking up the sunshine and for the first time in a long time I could breath. The stress and burden of trying to have it all together – vanished. I didn’t realize the weight I was carrying. So from then on I vowed to live. Live without expectations. Live without rules. Stop comparing.
All that being said, I wanted to document my monthly goals… Some must be done, and others are things that I simply want to do but if I don’t that’s okay too (see what I did there – no expectations – it feels dang good). I want to look back and see that I worked hard but also lived well. Did things that I loved and enjoyed.
