26 is going to be a "reset". This past year, I had a few ups and downs. It started out promising, but I didn’t get anywhere near as far as I had hoped. I had high expectations for 25, which led me to put too much pressure on it and ultimately not meet those expectations. Now, don’t get me wrong, I’m still on a good track; I just know that I’ve hit a stall and I’m holding myself back. These past few months, I’ve been slacking – not cooking at home, not cleaning my apartment, not exercising, not doing all the business planning that I need to, etc. I’m still good at looking like I got it all together, and I’m sure all my friends think that I do, but it’s not really the case. I’ve been a huge fan of “fake it till you make it” but I don’t know how well that is working for me. I need to reset my priorities; recent events have showed me that I am not focusing enough on my health and well-being. In the past, I focused too much of my energy caring for those around me to the point of burning myself out. Now, I need to learn how to set boundaries and allow myself some time to actually make sure I am happy with where I'm at. That is going to be the focus of 26.
To mark the milestone of this "reset", I am officially launching my professional website ND-BOURNE.COM and social media @nd.bourne. This launch will hold me accountable in making sure that I am moving forward and knowing that I have the support of my followers will help me thrive and continue to grow. I’ve never been very active on social media, as I tend to be a private person, but this is my little way of mixing business with pleasure. I do have a very social side, and I’ve been ignoring her for a while, never letting her out to play – 26 is going to change that.
I hope you enjoy following my journey, as I am looking forward to sharing it with you.
Keep moving and be well!
