2017 One Little Word
The word may be little but it's meanings aren't.
In 2016 I moved to southern CA from Utah. I moved on from LDSBC, graduating with a certificate in Social Media Marketing. I moved on from working full-time at Tai Pan Trading to a remote part time social media job.
Moved away from family and friends that I loved. Moved away from activities that kept me busy multiple nights of the week. Moved away from having shopping and good restaurants close-by. Moved away from living close to a freeway. An airport. My bank.
I thought of this word because I have moved away from a place where I was moving and active quite a lot. Camping, hiking, festivals, Yelp events, community events, 5K's, shopping, water parks, rec centers, Questival, etc.
I've given myself this word for the year to remind me to stay active and not sit still. Now that the unpacking of boxes is done, I could almost sit and twiddle my thumbs and wait for something to happen. Get invited to do something. Go somewhere.
But no. I am committing myself and setting mini-goals throughout the year to stay moving and active. Not sit around and wait for things to happen. Some of my ideas are:
- Get my bike repaired so I can ride it around town
- Participate in the 365-mile challenge
- Keep hosting Pinterest parties
- Do a "Crepes & Crafts" night
- Plan camping/hiking trips on flex-Friday weekends
- Go on walks with my neighbor across the street
- Projects in the she-shed
- Find a color run to participate in
- Post more belongings to sell online and downsize my stuff
I want to keep the goal of moving in the forefront of my mind. I'm glad not to move locations anytime too soon - moving houses is a pain! I just want to move myself and not get lazy and stay active. THAT is my goal for 2017!
