4 weeks into 2023…. Lets make a Vision Board

“Do not wait until the conditions are perfect to begin. Beginning makes the conditions perfect.”

– Alan Cohen

It’s four weeks into 2023 and I feel like I’ve already wasted these last 20-25 days. It’s not because I haven’t done anything, I just feel like I haven’t evolved from the person I was last year. The 2022 version of me had a lot of regret and shed a lot of tears. It’s supposed to feel like New Year New Me…. But it’s hard to break old habits when you’ve become comfortable where you’re currently at in life. Being comfortable isn’t the same as being happy. Everyone has something about themselves that they wished they could change. How they look, how they learn, their job, their status, and where they are. I always say that I want to travel to where I’ll be in five years to see if I’ll be alright. Will I like my job, will I live in a nice place, will I have my go to restaurants and café to do work at, will I have had traveled??? I want to already be in that place. However, time travel doesn’t exist. You also can’t get to where you want to be without working hard for what you want. I’ve always struggled with watching other people being handed everything to them and not appreciated it. I’ve always felt that I had to work for everything I got, and if I didn’t work for it, my parents did. In our household, no one gets anything without doing the work. I used to get really upset about that, but I’ve grown to appreciate the fact that I was pushed to work hard. All I know how to do is work for I want. I think that mentality is what going to help me going forward into this year. As you might’ve read from the title, it’s never too late to make a vision board. I didn’t add my end all be all goals on this. However, these are little things that I want to add to my everyday routine. I think if I focus on myself and my self-happiness, it will get me into the right mindset to go for my life goals. Who knows….? Maybe my goals will change. That’s the great thing about life, you are constantly learning new things about yourself. Maybe this plan won’t work and that’s okay. Any experience is good experience if you learn something new about yourself. That’s why I’m going to make 2023 the year of ME. If I don’t love me, I can’t expect anyone outside of my family to. That starts with adapting to a healthy sleep schedule where I go to bed and wakeup early, have my morning coffee and read for 15-20 mins before starting to get ready. I want to focus on making memories and actually living through them. I need to create a healthy workout schedule and meal plan. The main thing I was to achieve this year is journaling. I always have so many thoughts in my head and it makes it easier for me to concentrate when I write all of it down. The best thing to do when you set goals is to not put too much pressure on yourself. You’ll eventually get into a rhythm, eventually you’ll learn what you can handle. Which I bet, is a lot more than you think!
