Happy Sunday to all. I’ve been doing a lot of reflecting on happiness and what it takes to be happy. We all tend to look at the big things we think we need to be happy. We need to get in shape and lose weight, go on grand trips, accomplish all of our personal goals. The lists go on. In reality we need to start at the bottom with the hard work. It takes some willpower, and sacrifice to begin and work from the ground up. The journey is even more important than the destination. You need to put in the work to get results, there’s no way around this. Above are the 10 categories I plan to tackle and work on over the course of the year for my happiness journey.
So beginning my reinvention of my blog and tackling the 10 categories I’m starting January with a theme. It’s healing and hard work. What does that mean? A lot of times our problems are a result of not taking care of issues. We procrastinate, we put off what we should be doing to better ourselves in mind/body and spirit. If you put off moving your body and eating clean you will see later issues will come up. Same with financial procrastination, and the lists go on. So January is my month of healing, setting the ground work of the categories I plan to work on in the year of 2020. Remember I’m working on my whole life, which includes my vegan weight loss/fitness and more. My life is so whole package, not just the wrapping.
Today I’m setting my intentions for Monday, the week and the month. This month of healing is going to be a month of clean vegan eating. Getting my home in order, tackling financial problems I’ve put off. This month I’m going to move more, do yoga and workout. I’m starting with daily simple walking because I have a knee injury that is lingering. Monday’s intentions are to toss any vegan junk I have left from the holidays, and grocery shop on a limited budget. I’m going to post all about how much I’m spending and what my vegan grocery haul consists of. This small intention will lead me to my next January intention, paying off bills and debts. Less money wasted on unhealthy food will be money to go to bills. Here’s a poll for you guys. How much money does a couple need to spend weekly on healthy vegan food? I say 50 and my hubby says 100.
A quick recap, tonight I write out my intentions for Monday, the week and the month. I follow through with my Monday intentions. Each night I write intentions for the following day and so on. January is healing, my mind/body/ which includes things that are bothering me like financial burdens and getting my home in order. I bought white lights to replace the Christmas lights so my space will feel illuminated and lovely. January is setting the ground work for the categories I’m working on to be happy.
Are you happy? Let’s be happiness gurus together. Maybe you can write your own list of 2020 categories. Happy Sunday to all. So much love and light.
