As I sit here in bed, listening to the thunder rolling in and the gentle rain falling outside my window, it feels as though everything is falling into place.
Just a few short months ago, my life hit a breaking point and everything came crashing down. Life had taken its swings at me and I just couldn’t fight back any longer. There were moments when I was unrecognizable.
I was stuck in a toxic environment, thinking that there was no way out. I was told that I wasn’t the same person from a year ago and you know what, she was right.
I allowed someone else’s energy to take over mine and I had temporarily lost who I was. I was so concerned with what was going on around me that I stopped looking within and that’s where I got into trouble.
You begin again.
I took a job where I knew nothing but they were willing to take a chance on me.
I took the vacation that we had been planning for a year and focused on family time.
These two very different moments in my life aligned me with people who I needed to have at that moment. Ever since getting home from vacation, I have been focusing on who I want to become and what I can do to get there.
I have been focusing on self-care.
I have been focusing on writing.
I have been focusing on creating an environment that supports me.
In my last blog post, I talked about learning to silence the outside influences that can control our lives. In that post, I share the Wellness Challenge that my hubby and I are doing together to promote overall wellness together.
We are focusing on physical wellness as well as mental wellness and in the short couple of weeks that I have been refocused on all of these aspects, I can feel Samantha coming alive again.
The anger that I have is dissipating.
The disappointment I have is disappearing.
The love that I have for myself is coming back.
It feels like this is the next step. Stepping into a challenge to continue to build my self-confidence and even discover more of me than I have before. This is the next stage in my healing. Focusing on WHO I want to be and HOW to get to be her.
Have you ever heard of 101 goals in 1001 days?
I have done a post in the past but honestly, most of it just didn’t feel like things I wanted to do. It felt like things that I SHOULD be doing. You know what I am talking about. I finished my new list today after four days of working on it and I am excited to be sharing it here.
All of these goals align with who I want to be and the things that I want to achieve in the next three-plus years of my life. 1001 days equals just under 33 months. There are lots of things that I want to achieve and I am ready to take the steps to do them.
As I continue to work on my wellness challenge, this 101 goals list is going to complement what I am working towards. Are you ready to hear my list??
Sharing goals can sometimes feel daunting. You question whether you are dreaming too big or too small. If you haven’t made one of these lists before, it can take multiple days to get your list completed. You may even need to look at other people’s lists to get some inspiration.
I recommend that you start one. My list is now complete and the end date is May 4, 2026. You will get updates every three months so that you know how I am doing with working on this list.
Those are goals for the next 1001 days and I am so excited! Do you have a list? I would love to see your list. Feel free to share it below so that I can have a look!!
