January 2017 is already a closed chapter! I made sure to take the time to do a little review of the past month for myself and would like to share what I came up with.

HEALTH: Established an exercise routine of walking for one hour between my home and a nearby coffee shop. This allows me to carve out time to listen to my favourite podcasts (right now I've been listening to a lot of Dave Ramsey for financial advice), drink more water, and get moving. I've also started being more intentional about eating local, organic fruit and vegetables.
RELATIONSHIPS: Intentionally spending more time with good, motivated people. I started a blogger get-together so that I can widen my network with like-minded women.

CAREER: I've created a new product - my Coloring JoyBook and was interviewed on the She Means Business podcast. The episode I recorded with Carrie isn't live yet, but you can subscribe to the podcast HERE
PERSONAL GROWTH: I've been listening to personal development audios and reading every day: Earl Nightingale, The Magic of Thinking Big, The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up, The Power is Within You by Louise Hay...
HAPPINESS: Taking time to do fun things like going out dancing on salsa night and getting dressed up to have a nice drink in a nice place with friends. I'm also digging deeper into my art hobbies by taking classes on the website SkillShare.

SIMPLIFY + ORGANIZE: I've started using Dave Ramsey's free budgeting system called Every Dollar to organize my personal budget and it really is the best system I've ever used and I've tried and spent money on so many other programs. Additionally, I got some work done on my car to get some things fixed - I don't like doing car stuff so this is a big deal. I also withdrew from a commitment as a board member on a non-profit that I can no longer help with.

Whew. You know, if I didn't take the time to write this up for myself, then I would have felt like I didn't really do much in January because sometimes we fool ourselves into thinking that progress isn't progress unless it's perfect. But that's not true. Progress is progress!
