I quit working (teaching and coaching) after Jordan was born and spent 9 years as a SAHM. When both boys were in school I worked in the office at their elementary school and it was a fun job but not a career.
In August of 2013, Chris and I bought a business – The Governor’s Row House – an event venue. The first year was a huge learning curve for me since I didn’t have any idea how to run a business.
Then my business partner (and life partner!!!) promoted to Colonel and the Vice Wing Commander (2nd in charge) of the base here. Awesome for sure but it meant less time for Chris to be able to help with the venue.
I spent a number of months really struggling.
I thought that if we owned a venue it should be the best one around. However, after going through Tara‘s workshop (Stuck to Unstoppable) I realized that my new goal was just to do the best job I could with the venue and that took a ton of pressure off of me.
Now, I have some new goals and plans!! But instead of just thinking about stuff I can do or just talking about them, I’m taking steps toward seeing those goals become a reality.
It is a little scary because there are definitely risks involved and there will be some steps that are WAY outside of my comfort zone. However, I’m super excited that for the first time in MANY years, I’m taking action and going for something big!!!
I do have big plans and I’m going for it even though it might be hard and it might be stressful and it might take some time!!
So, I’m going for it and the plan is to have a 2nd business that compliments our wedding venue and allows me to use some of my life experiences (besides cleaning and ironing!).
I can’t remember where I saw this last week but it is something I’ve been thinking about a lot lately!!
I feel like when I first started blogging I had a clear cut vision and a goal of trying to be a better version of myself each day. I took steps every day to try and achieve that goal.
For the past couple of months I feel like I haven’t done a very good job of this at all. I have been on a downward spiral with no personal improvement.
Starting today, I’m going to get back on the path to improving myself each day. I know that a lot of this change will be a mindset – I need to get back to my positive mindset and let go of a lot of the negativity I’ve been harboring lately!!!
So, here’s to getting back on track and working each day to become the very best version of me possible!!!
Do you ever feel like you get knocked off track and then struggle along aimlessly? How do you get back on course?
Plus, I also did 365 consecutive days of blogging!!!! This post is my 435th post in 1 year!!! Besides the daily posts, I also have some recipes, some workout reviews and some boot camps and a few just random posts!
So, my goal for my year of 43 has been achieved and now I’m moving on to new goals for 44!!! (Well, sort-of the same goals but a different year!)
I’m going to continue my daily activity – this time with 44 reps!!! At this point I’m also planning to continue with daily blogging because I truly enjoy the part of my day where I put some of my random thoughts in writing!!!
So, here’s to another year of achieving new goals!!!
Happy Sunday!! I’m off to rest up for my first 44 which will actually be later today and into tomorrow so that it counts as my birthday 44!!!
