I’ve been thinking a lot about my future lately. Last year was all about taking me out of my normal. This year I need to take it up a notch.
One of the things I want to do this year is think less, act more and be impulsive. By nature I am a practical person and I tend to over plan and over think everything. While a strength in my work life, it can hold me back in my personal life. Too often I have said no to things, or found excuses – like “I’m tired” or “the weather is complete shit”… excuses be gone!
My therapist, yes I have a therapist (I think everyone should have one, but that’s for another day), has suggested that I start a vision board. I think of it as my paper version of Pinterest or a throwback to grade 3 art class. I think its funny that while I am trying to be more impulsive, I still gravitate to the idea of having a plan for it – hahaha. Baby steps.
First step in more vs. less is a trip to Mexico. Normally I would have balked at the cost for a week away, or the idea of an all-inclusive resort, which isn’t normally what I go in for. I tend towards city vacations or off the beaten track beaches, but the idea of the sun, sand and heat in the middle of winter was too tempting. Stay tuned.
