I love to reflect, overthink, and write down just about everything. As I get older, I'm finding how important it is to be extra kind to myself. The last two years in my house have been filled with heartbreak and chaos. I thought it'd be fun to envision what 2024 could be together...
As you know, multiple surgeries come with multiple costs. I think we've finally reached a point where we don't receive a hospital bill every time we check the mail. That being said, I had to pause a bit on traveling far, in order to pay off the bills.
I have about 11 states left to visit and I'd love to work on that list in 2024. Right now, I've been planning a trip to Savannah, GA and then maybe a loop around the New England states! I've missed traveling, but it was nice to explore places in my home city I haven't been to yet. Because of it, I've written more guides about Omaha, NE and I just keep finding cooler things to do here.
I don't mind the dark winter nights, but I do find myself feeling sleepy earlier than normal. One thing I've really been enjoying is doing yoga in bed. I feel so calm after and it really reduces my anxiety the following day. I'd love to continue that in 2024!
I've noticed too, I'm much more motivated to do push-ups and sit-ups after yoga. I don't go crazy, but I do play a song or two and see what I can accomplish. To me, it still feels like 'yoga' and not a 'workout' which helps me show up more.
I am a big fan of online church. I have watched Elevation consistently for years now! However, a couple months ago I found a church I really like near our home and it has been very nice to worship in person and be surrounded by other people. <3
I'd love to keep going to that church this year and figure out how to avoid working on Sundays again. I have a full-time job now and I am still figuring out the best way to frame my weekends. My goal is to work on Bliss Junkie a couple hours each Saturday, but when we leave town or I get sick, I don't have a plan. I hope to work out those kinks this year!
As I think of the rest, I will continue to add to the list. For now, this is all I need. Being strict with myself has never worked in the past and many times goals have left me feeling disappointed for months. Love you guys - we will have a great 2024 ✨
