I wanted to check in with you all on my personal updates of my 2016 intentions. I know that a lot of you have your own resolutions or intentions to keep by, and I would love to know what they are by commenting or messaging me below. 🙂
So far, I’ve been able to keep up with just a few, small “life” lemons thrown at me. I wanted to share my experience of “reading more” with you all.
I am still waking up at 5 am on weekdays and sleeping in until around 6 am on Saturday and Sunday. This is the only way I’ve been able to read. I suggest if you have children or feel like you don’t have enough time, read “The Miracle Morning” by Hal Elrod. He equips you with how you can jumpstart your mornings by being productive as soon as you wake up and take some “me” time by including things like meditation, prayer, and journaling to name a few. Reading, whether it be the bible or a recreational read, and writing are two of my favorite routines. I will have to outline my morning routine in another post.
I finished reading The Whole 30 along with the program, and now I am on to “Girl Code” by Cara Alwill Leyba. It’s a great motivational ready for any woman to get rid of negativity, including people, in their lives in order to reap success. It makes you reflect on your situations, yourself as a person, your possible outcomes if you choose to act in compassion towards others, etc. She has a strong voice and is the author of her own blog, The Champagne Diet, where she life-coaches other women on tricky circumstances and tries to help others succeed in their own business.
I don’t know about you, but I always love reading about women whom have made it. You need these role models in your life, even if you don’t personally know them. Imagine being sucked down by others who are constantly tearing you down or rejecting your ideas without positive criticism. This book will help you as a friend, and it will propel you to keep on keeping on!
You can find my updates on Goodreads so you can keep me accountable with my reading intention this year! Who knows? Maybe I will read 30-40 books this year?? That sounds far-fetched, but hey, if I put in the time, anything is possible!
