Reevaluating Life

After a spell of some serious home-sickness Christmas evening I came up with a list of things I am unhappy with in my life. Here is what I scrawled down:

  • Miss my family
  • Not content at work
  • Money
  • Little time for "me"
  • Always in a rush to complete something
  • Miss RI

So the first and last items of course I think were very much due to the homesickness, however, I think there is a lot to be said about everything on this list. I am definitely going to take it to heart to improve my life.

I started thinking about where I am and where I want to be. What am I doing? Where do I want to see myself in the next year? 5 years?

How can I improve my business? If I improve my business, that could lead to more money, and travel which could solve my money, job and homesickness problems. But I also need to make sure I am taking time to take care of myself. This weekend I used a little money that I had received for Christmas to buy myself some clothes. I haven't bought myself any clothes other than my Target uniform in at least 3 years or more. I don't do little things like take the time to do my nails or to spend a little time doing something not related to bettering my business. I love my business, it is my dream and livlihood, but sometimes between working full time and trying to run a business I find that I don't have anytime to take care of me!

I'm hoping to create a plan that will help me find balance in my life. To find happiness and direction. This isn't a New Years Resolution, it's a manifesto. I will make my life better and I'm letting you all know it!!

Anyone else going through similar thoughts/feelings?

I'm sure you'll manage to find the way to balance life & your business for sure!

I keep on thinking on how I need to start working on a plan for G & me to move together, so I think that'll be my project for this year.
