Habits can be hard to commit to and maintain.
Actually, let me rephrase that sentence: Habits are easy to commit to, but hard to maintain.
Promising to create too many (new) habits at once can really derail any attempts to get better at something. My tendency is to want to do it all, but I end up doing a lot half way or not at all. So, I’m thinking about how to start slow…again.
When did my life get so fast? So busy, but without any satisfactory direction that I can feel good about.
This is the year that I reinvent myself. Reinvent my priorities. Strike a balance between my professional and personal life. Accomplish important projects I’ve been putting off and then feeling guilty for putting them off. Make more time for family.
This is the year that’s going to make all of the trauma of 2019 worthwhile.
One small self-care habit. I don’t know what that’s going to be yet. I already have one professional one I’m thinking about. Not a new habit, just a slight adaptation to what I’m already doing.
So, this post is my way of making my intent known to the world: World, I am going to do one thing to take care of myself in 2020.
Here I go.
