My Life Being Renewed: Life Checkup

Life Checkup

December 4, 2012

Hi Lovelies! It's been a little busy here lately to say the least, I have so many things that I am trying to work on at the same time. Just thought it would be fun to do a little Life Checkup to see how I am progressing. Here are some things that I've been working on lately:

Business Selling my Vintage/Designer Finds-  I am on the fence about staying on Etsy or starting my own online shop, I know that facebook could be a great help as well, but I will have to check into how to do the payment methods- if anyone has any input, I would love the advice! I am hesitant about listing all of my items on Etsy until I can figure out what to do..Oh yeah & I started a new page with some of my vintage/designer finds- it's at the top of my blog if you want to check it out. I will update once I take some more pictures.

Health/Fitness I started back running every morning {just this week} and I feel so much better already- I am also working out with Strength Training in the afternoon and usually a 30-45 minute brisk walk. I made a pact with my sister that we would reward ourselves with a shopping spree once we got to our GW! That's definitely motivation in my book & I only have 10 lbs that I want to lose. I've also been taking my daily vitamins & drinking smoothies.

Career- I applied for 2 jobs at the Main Hospital and one at another medical center. The hubby applied for a job at Acosta as well.

Self & Relationships with others I have been working on trying to let go & look past things that people do. It isn't easy, especially when someone makes a passive aggressive/snarky remark or put down. What do you do in that type of situation? I never confront anyone, but it does hurt my feelings and upsets me. I am working on not holding on to negative things that people say or do to me because in the end, it really hurts me more than it does them, so they win both ways.

Spiritual Healing I have been praying alot more lately about things in my life and have had to rely on my faith and trusting in God and I've seen that he has my back. I have also noticed that my "social anxiety" is so much better- usually when I go places, if there are too many people I get anxiety, but yesterday we went everywhere and not once did it bother me- thank God!

Marking things off my Bucket List/Doing New Things I can be a little bit of a home-body, but I've been working really hard to do new things and go out and have fun. Lately, I have visited the Christmas Light Festival, Holiday Wine Festival, went to an outdoor movie screening, tried fried pickles, made new friends-in real life & online, visited South Carolina & watched a Play, and strolled downtown Thomasville shops with coffee in hand- it was about time since I do actually live in the town..

Finances/Budget I've been doing great with this one- I have not been spending much money at all. Mostly, I've been using the gift certificates/gift cards that I had to buy things and eating what is already in my pantry.

Some things that I still need to work on are growing my nails and drinking water- I am embarrassed to say, but I probably only drink a few glasses of water during the day- no wonder my face has been so puffy lately!

What are some of the things/goals {big or small} that you have been working on lately?
