2018 Goals Post Graphics

I have been planning on doing my big goal post for the year for a while – but then life got in the way. Nothing like working like a crazy person for the holiday season then getting sick to get you to realize what you want in life. Also, a contributing factor is that today is a bad DBA Day (DBA= Diamond Black Fann Anemia) which means I am upset at my body and at myself because I cannot do #allthethings normal people my age do. I start feeling sorry for myself and then it goes downhill from there. Instead of letting that happen I am reminding myself of what my goals are and some big picture habits I need to work on this year. I believe in always getting better in #alltheways; so that means physically, psychologically/mentally, emotionally, and in relationships.

What I am focusing on and what I am not…….

This is my way of saying what I am saying yes to and what I am saying no to. The things I am saying NO to are things that don’t help me to accomplish my goals or get me in the wrong frame of mind. Basically, I am saying NO to things that do not make my life better or easier. But the things I am saying YES  to help me get to my goals, help me stay in the right frame of mind and make my life better or easier. I am saying yes to things that make me happy and things that I should do more often, or when I start to feel sorry for myself because of things out of my control; i.e. DBA.
