I love wall calendars. In a world where more and more people rely solely on electronic devices to keep their lives organized, I still maintain a yearly ritual of selecting the perfect wall calendar for the upcoming year. A calendar that will not only remind me of upcoming events and special dates, but one that will inspire me and bring a smile to my face each morning as well.
This year I chose a calendar with the theme Life is a Beautiful ride. Each month shows a single woman enjoying life in various ways and in different locations around the world . The theme for January 2019 shows a woman enjoying a gondola ride and the motivational caption “Be Unstoppable!”
Yes! I needed to see those worlds. As I look back on my life I realize that I have, in fact, been unstoppable. There have been many challenges, many heartaches, and I still continue to evolve and grow into who I am meant to be. You have too! We can’t get this far in life without a becoming force to be reckoned with. We have created our lives thus far by being unstoppable.
So with the realization that I can achieve what I set out to accomplish, what do I aspire to achieve in 2019? How will I show to myself this year that I am unstoppable ?
I aspire to find joy and purpose in each day. Especially during my time at school in the classroom. Anxiety will not stop me!
I aspire to continue to grow in my humanity and serve others the best I can. Selfishness and judgement will not stop me!
I aspire to continue to focus on my health and continue to grow stronger. I will continue to workout, ride my bike, and hike. The new challenge will be hiking Gray’s peak in Colorado. 14,270 ft. 3,000 ft elevation gain. Arthritis will not stop me!
I aspire to continue to learn more about the world through travel. I have a trip planned to Paris this summer. Finances and guilt about spending money will not stop me!
I aspire to be flexible and strong when life does not go according to plan. Finding solutions when things go off course and the unforeseen takes place is being unstoppable!
As always, I would love to hear from you. How do you plan to be unstoppable in 2019?
