Your Place in the World

thinking

It hasn’t even hit noon yet before my mind started going crazy with thoughts today. And what do you do when you have a mind full of thoughts? Blog about it of course!

My struggle today can most likely be relatable to MANY people in their 20’s like me. I randomly began thinking about my life. Actually, it’s not too random because I find myself doing this quite often. The struggle I face is I am not too happy with where I am in life right now. Don’t get me wrong, there are many great things I will never change such as recently getting married to the love of my life and have a house of our own but that’s not everything in life….

I will quote exactly how I stated it before….

“I’m finding it extremely hard to find my place in life in regards to what I want to do or where I exactly want to be in addition to the little areas I am in now which I guess is very typical for someone in their early 20’s. I’m making it a goal for 2015 to at least get a better idea for myself and a plan I can at least start working towards regarding my life.”

Now what does this mean? Well, simply put, my indecisiveness and lack of ambition has caused me to not figure out what I want in my life to make me happy. Instead, I settled with what I have and didn’t move any farther.

My job? I will admit, I do have a good job that I only got through connections but is this really where I want to be for years to come? Not at all. As much as I can move up on the scale here, I really do not know if I am happy staying here. My co workers are great. The place is great. But overall, I feel I am the tiniest person at this business and I just want to be heard more and have more value to what I offer.

Thinking about my ideal job, I honestly feel I would be better off with a more independent job. Why? Because, not to be shallow, but I can’t stand people. I can’t stand people always looking over my shoulder or telling me what to do and what not to and always checking in on me. My level of patience just is never there.

So here’s to my new search I began investigating already to find exactly what I can do career wise that can be more independent for myself.

School? Now here’s another tough aspect of life for me. Do I go back to school or not? If I do, what would I go back for? I have no ideal position or study in mind that is causing me to jump on the schooling train. But I feel I would feel more complete with a earned degree to my name.

And what about my overall self and well being? I can hardly stick to one thing without giving it up and moving on to something else and just repeating the process. This in regards to routine, hobbies, and lifestyle. I want to find one true calling in life that I can enjoy doing on my free time and that can better my health.

So here’s to 2015 and my goal of getting a better idea of my life and where I want to be that will hopefully get me started on a go to plan I can start working on to reach my fullest life choices.

Realizing the Importance of New Year Goals

New-Years-Resolutions-Quotes-Images--500x376

Every year, we all think up our New Year’s resolution(s) as part of tradition, but how much do we actually stick to them? Probably not a whole lot… I know I hardly ever did. Don’t get me wrong, I am sure there are people out there that have made goals and actually stuck with them throughout the year and ย that’s great because that’s what we all should be doing.

Now that I am in my 20’s, I am realizing just how important it really is to create resolutions, do them, and stick to them. Resolutions help to better ourselves. They create a part of us we can be happy and healthy with. The problem most people have is they lose focus. They give up. They don’t carry on the ambition. This is why if you really want to stick to your resolutions, you must fight for it and work on good ways and techniques to help you do this better.

So my main goal for 2015 is to lose all the bull crap excuses and get going on my resolutions. Given that your resolutions are realistic enough, there should be no excuse why you can’t stick to them.

I’ve come up with a few great resolutions that I’ve actually already started working on and I am excited to continue with.

1.) Eat healthier and exercise more- A very common resolution made among people but hardly ever gets completed. I lost focus after the last time I started this but recently have gained my ambition back to an even greater extent. I started eating healthy, got myself a gym membership, and even have my own little workout circuit set up in my basement. And I couldn’t feel any better! I just feel so much more healthy, alive, and starting to notice how my appearance is even changing. This is my reason to keep going.

2.) Get organized- I have had a crazy year for 2014. I was hardly ever organized and my life was chaotic. I had way too much going on and realize that now that I am getting older, I am going to be expecting a lot more of this. I hated misplacing things or forgetting things. So for 2015, I have decided to keep my own mini planner on me at all times. Instead of going out and buying a crazy expensive one, I am actually printing out free printables I have found online to bind together in a mini binder to make my own. The pages are adorable and the binder can easily fit in my purse to help make my life a little less chaotic.

3.) Budget, budget, budget!- This is probably the most important resolution to me. After looking over my bank account and finances of the past year, I couldn’t help but cringe. I was so mad at myself for all the unnecessary charges I made to my account and how carefree I was with my money. 2015 is the year of the savings account! I am creating a budget for myself and sticking to it. With a little research, I have found quite a few techniques and tricks to help with this. I am still trying to decide on the perfect one that fits me and my lifestyle the most but none the less, this will be done.

4.) Think and plan ahead- This ties in to all of the above resolutions. In order to do something correctly and the most beneficial for yourself and your lifestyle, you really have to think and plan before doing anything. My carefree in the moment changes and decisions have hardly ever worked out for me. This is why in 2015, before making any decision, I will think, plan, and initiate in the proper way. This also helps with decreasing your stress and helping to not make terrible decisions that will back fire with bad consequences.

So I shared all my resolutions! What are yours?

To Find Something to be Passionate About

dreams-come-true-pt-3

When I started this blog, I originally told myself I will make time everyday to at least make one post. Well that was definitely a fail! I have been beyond busy with a bunch of things that I will not get into because it would probably just put you to sleep, BUT they have been enjoyable busy moments for me ๐Ÿ™‚

So thanks to my lovely followers for sticking around and I am glad to be logged back on to WordPress in order to create another post. I was having a hard time figuring out what this should be about. My mind wanders and wanders until something clicks. And then, as I was looking through my computer, something did click.

How many of you have a bucket list? How many of the items on there have you accomplished? Do you still stick to that list? Bucket lists are a common thing for people to create. I enjoy it myself and love adding new goals I would like to accomplish. It’s a great way to keep track of everything you dream and wish to do in your future. The hardest part is actually sticking to that list. I know I have had some struggles with that. But I am still young and have plenty of years left to get going on more bucket list items. So here I will share my personal bucket list to all of you in hopes that you can share a few items that are on your list as well. Just what are you dying to do?

There are far too many items on my list but here I will share a majority of some of my favorite items that I wish to accomplish. And hey, maybe it will give you some ideas on what to add to your list.

A Month Without

Wish me luck…. Starting in just a few days I am taking on a new fitness challenge. Each month I will be cutting something out of my diet for just that month. January and May are exceptions to this because lets face it, I will need a break ๐Ÿ˜‰

I am pretty excited and love trying new challenges! If anyone would like to join this challenge, I strongly recommend it. You would be surprised how eliminating one thing from your diet makes a big difference. If anyone else has any other challenges, please feel free to share them with me here!

Also, if anyone is choosing to try this challenge out, leave me a comment saying! I would like to hear who else out there is for it.
