I am in my 30s and there is so much I haven’t done with my life. There’s are things most people know how to do that I don’t. There’s also a lot of things I have done that I am very proud of. Nothing has come easy or natural for me. In fact, the only thing I am “natural” at is feeling lots and lots of emotion. Call me a highly sensitive person, an empath, overly emotional or whatever else you want. I have learned in the past few years that this emotion is a gift and it does have its place in this crazy world.
I know I am not the only one who is searching for answers and who is a highly sensitive soul. I know I am not alone. I started blogging about all this for a few reasons. I want to sort out the clutter in my brain and start accomplishing my goals. I no longer want to be ruled by my emotions and instead use them as guide. I want to be THE BEST VERSION of myself.
I want to document it all so I can inspire others to sort out their own lives and stop being afraid. I want to inspire myself to grow and reach my full potential and beyond.
I definitely won’t be perfect at it and I will have massive downfalls, I hope that at the end of the day I can make an impact on the world by being the most honest, authentic and best version of myself.
So what exactly is my best life?
The best version of myself is confident. She is fearless in her pursuit for happiness. She wants her home organized and clutter free. She is a goal setter. She is an entrepreneur. She is always learning. She is non judgemental but, she doesn’t take any crap. She is an amazing inspiring mother, friend and wife but, she knows how important it is to keep her own needs met. She is beautiful on the outside but, what matters more is her soul and her inner beauty. She emotional and vulnerable but in control. She is too busy persuing her life to care or worry about the little things. She trusts there is a universe that has a plan.
Self-development is great. Wether its through books, videos or audio, I think the pursuit of knowledge is essential. In fact, I am obsessed with the knowledge that is in the self help section of any book store. The thing is though, you can read all you want but, at the end of the day, you have to be willing to walk the walk and do the things actually suggested. This is my version of “walking the walk”. I’m putting all the book knowledge I have into actual motion. And I am doing that by starting with goal setting and determine what I really want out of this life.
My Top Ten Goals
- Have a cleaned, organized, beautifully decorated home.
- Have some style. Update my wardrobe, hairstyle and make up.
- Create an amazing self care/self love ritual.
- Travel, first by myself, then with my spouse and then have a family vacay.
- Improve my driving skills.
- Create my very own girl tribe of amazing, inspiring and like minded women, who grow with me. Just by being in their presence and knowing them, they help me become the BEST woman I can be.
- Grow my business (Smashlee Stitches) and be the most kick ass knitter I can be.
- Create a work/life balance that includes friends, family and work time.
- Fall in love with exercise and healthy eating
- Get really really really good at Scrabble!
These goals may seem all over the place and even a bit “out there”. They may not even seem relevant or “list worthy” but, the thing with goals is that they are deeply personal.
I don’t think for a second that getting good at scrabble will improve my life dramatically or that the key to happiness is high heels and make up. But, each one of things I have ALWAYS wanted to do, so why not?
I hope you will stay tuned to see my progress along my journey to my best life. You can look forward to posts about my process on obtaining my goals but also, I want to share my thoughts some of my favourite inspirational books, movies, people etc. My hope is my readers will be inspired to start living their best lives away!
Keep Smiling and don’t stop being awesome!
