It’s been a little while since I’ve posted and this past month was truly a whirlwind. With saying goodbye to our sweet boy Tobi, to packing up the house, loading it into a POD, packing up the U-Haul, saying goodbye to friends, and moving from coast-to-coast I just didn’t have it in me to write. I am really realizing that it’s ok to not post and not feel guilty about it. Yes, this is my “business” and I make a small amount of money off of it (and would like to make more) but I’m not going to stress myself out to the point of feeling guilty for not putting out content. <-This is just me doing some self reflection, which let’s be honest we all do this in the near year haha.
SOOOO excuse my neurotic rambling. 😉
What are your goals for 2019?
What are you striving for?
How can we help each other?
I want to hear / talk about it all!
RECAP DECEMBER MONTHLY GOALS
ove safely. With us moving during the holidays we know the roads will be crazy making our treck across the country.
YES, we did it! We moved safely and made it to Charleston in one piece! Overall we didn’t experience much traffic and minus having to stop basically every hour and a half to fill up to a full tank (we like to fill up at half a tank) due to towing the U-haul we made it! The last 2 days of driving were exhausting but it felt so good to get to my hometown again.
Cross off the places I’ve been wanting to see / go again in San Diego.
WOOHOO, I totally did this! While I didn’t hit every place I wanted to I went to my favorite eateries, beaches, and a few hiking spots to just soak in that San Diego sun before saying goodbye.
Spend time with Eddie, soak it all in.
This one was definitely accomplished but with a caveat; it was really hard. Our last little bit of time together before saying goodbye I found myself being really short and rather rude/mean towards him. Its isn’t out of anger or even anything he had done, it was out of my fear and sadness and not knowing how to process the emotions I was feeling. We’ve talked through it and are in a good place.
- Spend time studying the Bible.
- Get back in my workout routine.
- Stick with Whole30 to re-evaluate my relationship with food.
- Get back into the swing of blog / photography business.
Choosing | To focus on the positive. I know I’ll have some negativity and struggle and legit just HARD times this upcoming year and I will battle with feeling overwhelmed and under qualified to handle it all. Yet in spite of all that I want to focus on seeing the good that can come out of this season vs the hardship. With that being said I’m having to evaluate a lot of what I want/need to be investing my emotions, finances, and heart into.
Tidying | The house. Unpacking is one of the best and worst things but I’ve been kind of slow with it since we got here. Mainly because I wanted to spend that time with Eddie and then we had Christmas, then new years and here I am with out 50% of the house unpacked and the rest staring at me to find it a home.
Resolving | To focus on endurance, in all areas in my life. Endurance in my spiritual walk, endurance in my marriage while we are apart (military), endurance in my physical and food health, and endurance in my mental health.
Exploring | Charleston. Seriously, this is my hometown, born and raised, and I feel like I want to see it with fresh eyes as if I’ve never been here before. With all the moving I’ve done recently I’ve seen how easy it is to overlook hidden gems and I want to find those!
Refreshing | My life. I feel like the last two years since Eddie and I got married I’ve been learning a lot about who I am and who I want to be which means that I’ve been doing a lot of growing and thinking and self reflecting.
Linking up today’s post with Anne.
