Less Worry More Life

29 Dec

I have spent the last few days really reflecting on this past year (as shown in my previous post). I really wanted to make some good goals for 2013. Life goals. Personal goals. Not silly goals. I want to be a better person.

I want to learn how to worry less and live more. All of the success I have experienced in the past few years feels…wasted. I have spent so much time thinking about where to go next and what to improve on and haven’t been living in the moment. I have gotten sucked into the typical American life of want, want, want, need, need, need and have forgotten to live.

So, that is my goal for 2013. To live. To try to let go of the daily grind and the goals and to appreciate the Colorado sunrise. The crisp feeling of the fall breeze on my cheek. To appreciate every single hug and kiss from my little ones. Especially the ones that are for no reason other than for them to say they love me. To appreciate the fact that my husband has a job and that even though we don’t OWN a house yet, we still HAVE one.

In 2013 I want to learn how to let all of the anger and disappointment and unmet expectations go. I want to forget about all of the monetary CRAP and remember the substance of life that matters.

I want 2013 to be a year of personal growth…not financial growth or business growth.

I want to be able to visit all of my grandparents without worrying about my savings account.

My ONE goal in 2013 is to worry less and live more. It is the ONLY goal that matters.
