September Challenge: 7 Things I'd Like To Work On/Improve

Sunday, September 7, 2014

Today's blog post is asking me to list 7 things I'd like to work on or improve about myself. I think we all know a few things we'd like to improve, but listing seven has me a little stumped and made me think a little bit. But here we go:

1. My eating habits - As I mentioned in last week's Transformation Thursday/One Year Post, I know one of my biggest down falls is food. Thinking of my health and fitness, that is on the forefront of my mind.

2. Taking Pride in My Work - I had a really nice talk with a co-worker the other day and she mentioned to me that lots of people at our work appreciate all the things I do. I can absolutely say I feel the love very often from my co-workers, but I think I need to take pride and believe in myself a little more than I do. I should be proud of what I produce/bring to the team. As a human I think it's sometimes tough to say "you know what, I AM really good at my job." I like to be great and I don't like to settle -- I want to be at the top one day. Looks like I'm on a good path so far...

3. Being Positive - If you asked me how my 'positivity' was a year ago I'd say it was nonexistent, I was a complete negative Nancy. However, over the last year I feel like I've been a pretty positive Polly. I'm hoping to continue to work on keeping my spirits high -- it is truly amazing how a positive mind changes outcomes.

4. Speaking Up - No one likes conflict or drama, hence why most of the time I let things boil up inside and never say anything to the person(s) I may have an issue with. I need to speak up more because if I don't (which is most of the time) it eats my insides away. It's not healthy for me.

5. Being A Better Friend - With friends living all over the country, it's tough to stay in touch. I need to improve my effort. For all of you I have not been in touch with lately, I'm very sorry, but please know I am ALWAYS thinking about you. Muah! Xox

6. Not Over Doing It - I like to have things planned and I like to be involved in as much as possible. But sometimes it seems like I book myself too much. It's okay to have a weekend of nothing. My body and mind need it, I should have them more often. Same goes for during the week -- stop over doing it, just RELAX a little bit.

7. Being Thankful - There is lots to be thankful for in life -- your family, your friends, your pets, your LIFE. I need to keep reminding myself that life IS good...don't let one little thing alter my mind set. Be happy. Be loved. Be thankful. <3
