Have you ever been so uncomfortable that you felt like your life was spiraling out of control? Well, that is how I have been feeling for a few months now and the impact is not good.
My reality check today was being told “stop being so negative, it is not a good look on you”. The comment honestly made me a little mad at first due to the billion things on my mind that has impacted me, but then I opened my eyes.
My move and experience has not gone as expected. I have been faced with far more challenges than I could have ever anticipated. I have flipped my life upside down and basically ever aspect of my life has changed. I am very uncomfortable. Being uncomfortable is scary and hard, which has lead to far too many complaints and self doubt.
I realize I need to lift myself up, face challenges one day at a time and lean on my support system. My support system is the only aspect of my life that has not changed. Currently I have only been able to find comfort in my support system and daily devotions. I pray that I soon find comfort in my job and new environment.
My last post I mentioned my health goal this year is focusing on my mental health. A big part of what I have been focusing on is self awareness along with reflection. Being self aware can be hard and having loved ones point out the truth to me has been a blessing.
Recognize the blessings in your life and embrace uncomfortable change. I know I am going through this for a reason, even though that reason is not clear yet.
I introduced you to my mindset of goals vs resolutions in my 2018 Goals post.
Before I share my new 2019 goals I will update you on how I did in 2018.
My 2018 goals are listed below:
Minimum of 60 minutes of cardio each week: Completed for majority of the year and fell off track towards the end of the year
Strive for 7-9 hours of sleep each night: I didn’t do a good job tracking, but feel I may have averaged closer to 6 hours a night.
Read and learn more about blogging: I joined Indy Blog Society and met up with an Indy blogger to learn more .
Visit 2 new states: Visited San Diego, CA in January and road tripped through OK in December.
Quarterly try something new that is outside of my comfort zone : First Quarter tried Thai food, 2nd quarter learned how to fish with open face fishing reel, 3rd quarter learned how to back a boat trailer and 4th quarter sold my first house.
I have a lot of change happening in 2019. I have big news…. I am moving to Nashville, TN.
I will be relocating for my company to handle the middle Tennessee territory. I know the opportunity for my career is great, but I am still sad to say goodbye to my loved ones in Indianapolis.
My goals for 2019 will be focused on my mental and emotional health. I struggled a lot in 2018 in these areas and expect more struggle with all the upcoming change.
I plan on journaling at least weekly. I will be focusing on my thoughts and feelings to continuously grow.
