How do we get ourselves to stop putting things off, particularly when New Years Resolutions are so close, yet so far.
Well this has been quite a week! I’m still fighting to get into a routine in SF, especially after the wedding. You know when you are ready to get your life in order but you have things on the horizon so you put it off, promising you’ll take care of it after [fill in the blank] happens? That’s me right now, or more accurately for the last 6 months. First it was okay, after we move I’ll deal with these things, then after the wedding, then it was after Thanksgiving, now it’s after our honeymoon (end of this month!) so at this point, it’s looking like 2017 is when I’ll be ready to get things in order.
Unacceptable, I know.
We can always think of something in the future that will get in the way of us buckling down and being our best selves. Even with roadblocks, let’s try not to wait so long to be who we want to be. With New Years coming up, lots of us wait until January 1 to make goals and putting in the effort and hard work. I’m 100% guilty of this. I love New Years resolutions, probably making December my least productive month (I’m not alone in this, right?). With a full month to go in 2016, I’m going to do my best to make the most of December. But don’t worry, I’ll still think up a few resolutions 🙂
At the same time, I’ll try to cut myself some slack. I do have a few things in the works and am teaching a bunch, but I would love to focus in on my larger goals and get to work. With all that being said, I’m going to use this weekend away to refresh my intensions.
What better place to do some reflecting and soul searching than by the water? This afternoon we’re headed two hours south to Carmel-by-the-Sea. As recent West Coast transplants, Carmel is one of the top places that people have been telling us to check out. I’m looking forward to exploring the town, enjoying the views and taking it all in. I recently wrote about Carmel in a story I put together for DCRefined.com: 6 romantic mini-moon destinations and how to plan the getaway and now I’m excited to get down there and experience it first hand.
