The new decade has got everybody in a “new year new me” frenzy. We are all setting our goals intentions for the next 365 days of our lives. For me, self awareness and personal development has become a huge topic in my own personal life. A lot of shit went down last year and I am in a new headspace to get myself back on track and start developing new healthy habits. No, my focus isn’t “I am going to be super super healthy and lose weight!”… that is something that I am always working on so not stressing about making it the main theme of my New Year.
As part of my plan towards self awareness and personal development, I am putting my time and energy into routines and habits that are going to help me grow as an individual, as a mother, as a wife and as an entrepreneur. I will go more into detail about that in another other post, but for now I want to share one of my goals this year… READ MORE! I won’t hesitate to say that I am not a huge fan of reading. I’ve never been patient when it comes to reading, yet I am always buying books in hopes that I will get through them. I love buying books, maybe it’s because I love writing… but anyway, one of my goals this year is to get through the books that I have purchased but have never finished.
(PSA I have actually finished two of the books in my list below, just decided that it has been a while and maybe it’s time that I re-read them)
