Even though we are in the doldrums of winter and it’s cold AF here in New England we aren’t talking about those types of seasons.
A few months ago I was talking to my day and something stuck; he mentioned a guy he knows said now that he was in his 60s, his life was just getting better. That’s exactly how I feel about being in my 30s.
So what is this season of my life for?
- My body.
- Feeling my best.
- Planning for the future.
I’ve mentioned that I am doing a DietBet about 400 times recently. My eating had gotten way out of control during the extended holiday season (my birthday – New Years). Enjoying that time of year is important to me so I don’t fret over it but man, oh, man when I got on the scale it was frightening.
My body is something that I ask a lot of, between long hikes, triathlons, half marathons, I am always on the move.
Feeling My Best
I feel my best when the following things are in alignment; eating right, exercising regularly and getting plenty of outdoors time.
SL and I have made a promise to each other to do something active together every Sunday this year. My hope is to do as many of these activities outside. So far, we have walked/hiked through sand dunes and gone cross country skiing.
Other activities I am looking forward to are bike rides, runs, hiking, kayaking
Doing Dry January helps me feel my best too 🙂
Planning for the Future
Planning for the future seems to be part of every season of my life but always looks a bit differently. When I started my MBA program, planning for the future looked like scheduling classes, figuring out how to pay for said classes and dreaming about the day I would graduate.
During the next season, it was all about wedding and honeymoon planning.
In this season of my life, planning for the future is more week to week than month to month and year to year. These days I rarely like to make plans too far out. I am really enjoying have the (perceived?) flexibility.
In closing, appreciate where you are in this season of your life’s journey. You are in the season for a reason and there are lessons to be learned and mistakes to be made. Enjoy it, embrace it and allow the seasons to change as need be. xo
