Today is Day 1 of many things – not just September. I have committed to my bullet journal, I have committed to taking 4 photo’s a day to show my body transformation, I have committed to my September goals and my 2016 goals. I am proud of myself and I know I can do more.
Two things I want to strive for each day are (1) find a quote of the day through things I am actually a part of and (2) to have a daily focus to help keep me positive and productive and to continue being a better person.
The quote can be from anything I read, to a conversation I am having or even overhearing that day. I am not picking out a quote to make that they day I have, instead I am taking what I have and making a quote out of it. Then when I am famous I can make calendars with my daily quotes from years past! Always think marketing.
The focus is a self reflection of how I can improve my star of being and the life I live. I want to always wake up with a smile and purpose, but I will admit there are days when I have no motivation and no feel of self worth. I know I matter and I have impacted lives, sometimes i just want to melt into the background. So as my own form of self therapy I am working on self improvement and self appreciation. Positive motivation = positive results.
If you can’t read the quote for today it says,
I’ll do it tomorrow, it’s fine.
Grosse Pointe Blank
That is a tribute to my procrastination side. While I am using it to push myself to do what I can today, I also take to heart the words, in that it’s okay to put somethings off; we need time and space to breathe. I was working on my journal, Anthony put the movie on and when John Cusack spoke those words it hit me, that was my message for today.
My daily focus got cut off in the photo but it says be in the moment and I hold a spot for participation if I can get anyone else to join me so we can experience mindfulness and be aware of what we are really experiencing in this life. I tend to let my mind think about what I have going on while others talk, telling stories, asking advice or just simply saying hi. I keep to my own zone of life and it’s not very engaging, in fact people think I am standoffish because of it. So I am challenging myself to find sometime today to be totally open, aware and present so that I may relive the moment in detail and enjoy it al the more!
One of my September goals is to blog every day and I am already off to a good start, I actually blogged! Each blog is to be no less than 500 words, and I am proud to say that comma separates word 500 and 501! So while I have a hundred other stories to share, there is a tomorrow waiting and more task to cross off my journal’s list. A bien tot!
