You are awesome - A Fantastic Friday Assignment

Happy Fantastic Friday!

I propose that instead of just  new Year's celebrations, traditions, and resolutions, we should break it up over the year; make it every month.
I figure it wouldn't contain quite as much pressure as those yearly markers, after all, it's a month- no biggy.  

Every month we could look back at some of the great things we did, adjust our goals, and feel good about just getting through. It might be a nice time to reflect, maybe pick up a new 30 day challenge or reevaluate our strategies for long-term goals. Maybe even have a party or some other funness. Anyway, thus launches Fantastic Fridays- a time to remember just how awesome you are before embarking on continued awesomeness.

It'll be the last Friday of the month which means for many the weekend is coming. Maybe there's a little time there for a reward and reflection.You made it through another month (and week for that matter) and you deserve that. Even if (like me)  your week doesn't always work like that, it's nice to be reminded and you can always find time to contemplate your coolness at a more convenient time. 

This Fantastic Friday your assignment is to:
Keep in mind- You. Are. Awesome.
You did your thing, you probably got some things done, learned something, helped someone, worked hard, maybe had fun. Whatever you did, you tried your best. You kept on keeping on.  I propose simply that you reward yourself for your accomplishments, maybe a beautiful bath, or dinner, or time for yourself-something. And I propose you spread the word. Other people are awesome too- thank them for something. 

That's it, sweet and simple. Hope you enjoy.

Excellence is a habit

Happy New Year! 

You're already full of awesomeness, but, if you find yourself already fretting over your New Year's resolutions this year, you may need to re-frame them. Your goals have to be sustainable to be attainable. 

Excellence is not an act, but a habit. - Aristotle

The journey towards excellence is made of habits you can maintain. These might involve baby steps or drastic changes, but they have to be right for you; something you can keep doing. Excellence and healthy lifestyles are not an act, but a habit. Find something that fits with you and you can go far!

Here are a few posts to help set SMART goals, maintain them, and assessing them. Hope they're helpful.

Do you have any particular goals for the new year? Some successes? Things you've learned? Leave a comment, I'd love to hear it. And- if you like what you read, don't forget to share, subscribe, or follow me on Twitter, Pinterest, or Facebook.

Live well and have a wonderful year, Charlotte
