It’s very common to make goals (or Resolutions) at the start of a new year. In fact, there’s a TON of buzz about them the moment Christmas is over.
And the most popular goal that we all tend to make almost always focuses on our health. Mainly our weight. More specifically, how to lose some of it.
Now, I know when I was single, I created this master plan of what I was going to do for myself in order to prepare myself for love and meeting Mr. Right.
I felt like if I had my stuff together then I would be bringing in “less” baggage into my future relationship and it would help me with finding love. Can you relate?
But my goals were very far-fetched! All of them were created with the end result of making me “feel better”.
If I just reach my ideal weight, then I would feel the best about myself.
Once save enough money, then I would feel more accomplished and responsible.
If I just improved my relationship with my family, then I would feel comfortable creating my own.
You can only imagine how I felt when another year would roll on by and I had yet to accomplish my “get it together” goals.
Of course, I didn’t reach half of these goals by the time I met and started dating my husband, Kyle.
Honestly speaking, the thought of pushing him away until “I was ready” came up quite a few times during our dating season.
I know. I’m crazy. Now that’s it’s all said and done, I couldn’t possibly imagine passing up Kyle simply because I felt like I didn’t have my stuff together.
