Describe one thing you'd like to achieve by this time next year. Why is this important to you?

I feel like I say this every year, but I would like to achieve inner peace. I want to fully in love and accept myself and be so strong that I will not allow anyone to change how I view who I am. It's important to me to be true to myself, I too often lose sight of who I am and start acting in ways that are detrimental to my being and my psyche and my ego.

I'd like to be in a place of health--mental and physical. This is still my biggest goal, and I've made so much progress. But I still have a ways to go. Nothing else matters as much as this. Once I have this down, I can begin to think about other goals.

I want to feel connected to and grounded in significantly more self love and acceptance. My relationship with myself is the most important relationship I will ever have, and it is only from a relationship rooted in self awareness, love, compassion, and acceptance that I can foster healthy, loving, generous, and fulfilling relationships with those around me. I am going through a divorce, and I know that I contributed to the toxicity and damage in the dynamic I had with my former partner. I want to be a part of a fulfilling and loving partnership and have a family. I have faith that will come with self love.

I'd like to achieve financial freedom, truly, by this time next year. That means to have enough cash in the bank I don't -have- to plan out every small purchase, though I still hope I choose to. I am tired of being out of money every week before payday, and tired of it holding me back personally and socially. The great news is it's something I can change right now, and I hope this wave of inspiration in other facets carries over. If not, discipline will have to do. This is extra important to me as I can't achieve ANYTHING that I want to do, from Mongol Races to traveling to skydiving to being a good friend and son/brother without having the adequate funds to actually do so.

I'd like to find a better work-life balance. I feel like all my time is devoted to working or being a mom, leaving absolutely no time to work on myself or my relationship with my husband. I would like to feel better at myself. This is important because I will be setting a better example for Penny and I will feel more confident in myself.
