Have you ever wanted to do so much, but you don’t know where to start? This year, I’m wanting to take my ideas from my head and try them out! What’s the point in creating ideas when we don’t apply them? Living an extraordinary life doesn’t happen if our images stay within our mind’s folders. My dreaming mind is soaring from places I want to travel, passions to pursue, complete, try and discover. (I even told a stranger at Goodwill when I dropped clothes off how bad I want to travel so it better happen) Imagine such a refreshing new start.
New starts for me start with cleaning. This week has been filled with cleaning out every closet, drawer and anything with clutter. Clean living is more than just a dust free room, but a life full of feeling the best version of yourself. As I get rid of the old and in with the new, my mind started churning into doing what I actually say I am going to do. I have a habit of agreeing to do everything before backing out last minute. I call this overthinking. I overthink everything from life choices to whether or not I want oatmeal or eggs for breakfast. Sound like yourself?
Someone has recently told me that in order to succeed you are going to have to keep going. Keep getting out of bed to try to work out, keep calling that person who won’t call you back and never settle for anything less than your greatest expectation. Whether that’s in a relationship, a goal you set for the new year or cleaning out that room you refuse to touch. For myself, I want to live clean and simply. I don’t want to put myself in chaotic situations or do something that makes me feel down about myself, ever, because having negative thoughts about ourselves ends today, for you and me!
Find beauty everywhere you go. Be that person who makes someone smile today. Start that hobby you have been wanting. I wanted to document life more, so I recently purchased a Sony 5000 camera that I purchased from this amazing site. It sends any photo directly to my phone and allows me to place in my purse so I can capture every moment!
I’m also in a design mood because designing one’s life must start with the bedroom am I right? I am the type of person who wants there bedroom filled with cremes and warm tones that complement my candles that are lit every night. (Check out below the Rewined candles!) They are made out of wine bottles and add the perfect design and smell to your room. I have the Chardonnay flavor and light it constantly!
Clean living is also what you are cleansing your body with. What have I been eating lately? Lots of eggs, salmon, and kale in addition to my barbecue chips I just ate and trail mix I had last night…great balance right? No one’s balance is ever perfect and we aren’t perfect. We are imperfect people in this imperfect world, but have the capabilities and gifts to accomplish and love so much.
Speaking of loving, one of my new favorite protein bars are the new RX Bars! They are packed with simple ingredients, taste awesome and have 12 grams of protein. You can order them online and buy them at Whole Foods or Trader Joes. They aren’t at any other grocery store yet but fingers crossed they will be soon!
I have a bunch of posts I have written but hide them because I am wondering if I should share them. I want to stop falling into bad habits, but say I will try again tomorrow. I want to try something new but am one step behind someone else and can’t get myself to go for it. If you contemplate similar thoughts lets join together today and DO IT. Lets do the things that are hearts are desiring. I can’t wait to see how life will be this year and remember that we are the start to our own race. Lets get going and show 2016 what it was missing.
“Embrace uncertainty. Some of the most beautiful chapters in our lives won’t have a title until much later.”
