My Life Rhythm: A Fresh Start

Ahhh....SPRING! The season of re-birth!  During this transitional season many of us do Spring cleaning in our homes, restart abandoned New Years resolutions to lose weight to get ready for summer wardrobes, and become more active with more hours of daylight finally awakening from the hibernation of Winter.

I love this time of year. It reminds me to create or re-ignite self care rituals in my life.  I have proclaimed this year as my breakthrough...focusing on health, wealth, and happiness.  To be more specific, I have decided to really work on the things to stop making repititive mistakes in my life. Some big, some small....either way as the grown folks say "I know better, so I should do better!"

I am a visionary. I THINK BIG! Yet, I realized that I need to bring things back to basics to experience my breakthrough. So, I'm keeping it simple...working one step at a time.

HEALTH Goal:  Lower cholesterol, prevent diabetes, and lose weight
  1. Schedule doctor appointments for all annual exams AND FOLLOW UP ON THEIR INSTRUCTIONS
  2. Exercise 4-5 times a week
WEALTH Goal:  Create a plan to maximize finances
  1. Organize all financial documents
  2. Use Quicken to plan financial portfolio
HAPPINESS Goal - Create Experiences!
  1. Use Groupon to try new things
  2. Take a week long destination vacation
Even while writing I am tempted to make this plan bigger, but I am going to resist. As I look at my goals again, I am assured that when I achieve them I will be very proud of myself...and the success will be a catalyst for the bigger pieces of my life vision.

  1. Have you considered or even heard of It's an online money/banking management system. Might make it easier to organize spending and help at tax time.

  2. Yes I have heard of it, hmmm...perhaps I'll research the differences betweetn Quicken and to make sure I use the one that is best for me. Thanks Najeema!
