As I turned the calendar page to a new month yesterday, I was struck by the realization that in just a few weeks, we will be closer to the end of 2015 than we are to the beginning. The change also prompted me to reflect on how much progress I am making toward my 2015 goals.
I opted to set goals this year rather than make resolutions. While the difference may seem purely semantic, I wanted to focus on realizing hopes rather than "fixing" or "improving" myself or elements of my life. I wanted to be proactive about continuing to create a life I love. I am pleased to say that upon revisiting the list I wrote in January, I am doing well on a number of the goals I set: I have updated the look and feel of the New Beginnings newsletter, I have begun laying the groundwork for my first yoga retreat, my husband and I have maintained our goal of a date night at least twice per month, and we have scheduled our first summer vacation alone with the babe.
An almost equal number of goals, however, remain largely untouched... But in the spirit of just being,** I am accepting where I am and looking ahead with optimism to the time that remains. I am using this midpoint of the year as an opportunity to renew my focus on pursuing the hopes and plans that resonate and energize me for what lies ahead.
Are you making progress toward your goals or resolutions for the year? If not, what can you do to get back on track?
