Life Musings: This Year

So it's been 6 months into the year (almost 7 months), and it's time to think about what I want my year to look like for the next 5 or so months. Like I had said when I started blogging a while back, I'm in transition. Mainly, transitioning out of what I didn't like and figuring out what I do like. Does that make sense? Well, hopefully if you keep reading I can explain myself better ;)

Brainiac-wise: Part of my aforementioned transition included deciding whether or not to pursue a higher degree, and whether financially that would be a smart move (I still have hella school loans from NYU). Even geographically-speaking there is hesitation. Leaving my home again makes me cringe a bit, just because of my parents' age, but you can't live life like that... especially when they aren't holding me back. So, I have made that a new goal- research what I need for programs I like and find all of the options available to me with regards to this. 

Health-wise: I have set goals for myself and even set nutrition and sleep goals. I care mostly about the changes I can measure and then reflecting on how they make me feel. For example, I love seeing my blog grow. I love seeing the progression of my growth as a makeup aficionado through pictures. I love the feeling of accomplishment from hitting a milestone in my health, whether it be not having migraines for a month, or sleeping on time for a minimum of 8 and half hours a night for a month and just noting the feeling on my body. I love that feeling. I love noticing how vitamins have affected my skin or my mood. I love seeing the difference in my body after working out for many months and admiring my own strength. It's empowering.

As the year rounds out, I really want to focus on health. I have found that any improvements in my life can be highly attributed to my health improvements. I've been reading Thrive by Ariana Huffington. Definitely loving it. When I'm done I think I will post about it, mainly because it stresses this notion of having an amazing quality of life and not just a work life that is out of control. I think this transition came about because although I am a huge achiever-type, I don't like achieving to just achieve. There has to be a purpose. And what I was seeing was a corporate world where women who had careers I thought I liked, were not necessarily having the quality of life I will not give up for a "career". It has never made sense to me to work yourself to ground and to live on edge. With your relationships constantly suffering? It doesn't make sense. I work to live. I work to support myself, my family, and hopefully to express myself creatively. Work is not life. Life is life. 

I digress...

Now I will begin research into schools and make sure that's a plunge I want to take... "You can never be overdressed or over educated," no? Make sure I'm sleeping and hell, let's throw a trip in the mix. That would be fab to round out my year.
