While it rained, all day, I remained focused and consumed by my laptop and chai. Type, stir, pour, sip. Stretch. Repeat. It's all very rhythmical. I completed my final presentation for my Master's degree, ever. My MA is done in less than 3 weeks. Holy Hell that was fast. I have a wee bit of work to do. Gulp.
Despite the crisp air, overflow of rain, and looming due dates, I'm experiencing a double dose of energy. I'm not sure if it's my new found love for cycling or goose down vest, but this winter feels warm, cozy, and full of new beginnings. Kinda like Spring time..except, not. At least not in this hemisphere.
Do you set goals? And create a vision for your life in one, five, or ten years from now? I do. It lights me up, which I reckon is why it feels like Spring time.
Ever since I began to create and authentically share my goals, I'm not only accountable but also inspired and confident that my big-hairy-audacious goals are wholeheartedly possible. Who is going to tell me it isn't so? Usually it's my own voice, the little annoying one, who says 'that won't happen' or 'that's not for me'. I hate that. It's such bullshit. When I set a goal, I should and need to be my biggest supporter. It's my life, my future, so why not create it? Well, duh. That makes sense.
In three years, I complete a triathlon.
I practice yoga six days a week by July 2012.
I cycle, run, and swim back-to-back for thirty minutes each, twice a week, by September 2012.
My best friend and I travel for 3-weeks including a 7-day yoga retreat, by June 2014.
I earn $250,000 a year, by June 2015.
In ten years, my husband and I purchase our second home in Vancouver.
My vision of my life at age 33...my perfect day, in my perfect life.
Goal setting is an integral part of my job, which prompts me to share our goal setting program with you all. Because life is sweet, delicious, wonderful, and it's yours. It's your only life. And it's beautiful.
It may be winter, but I'm fully switched on. I'm excited for all that is and isn't. And I'm grateful to be surrounded by amazing people.
2012...you just keep on lighting my world on fire.
