At some points of my life, I was so fixated on being me that I refused to change.
Now, I am so fixated on being me that I am compelled to.
Here are some of the things that I am changing.
I'm making my time in bed consistent by continuing with a hard bedtime (10pm) and setting a hard wake time (6:30am). I was able to wake earlier but I would need a sleep in or an early night. I feel like my body prefers consistency so I'm giving it.
I'm exercising 4-6 times per week for 1-3 hours per session. I found my thing. It's dance. I do a combination of choreography classes, HIIT classes, dance cardio classes, and dance bootcamps.
I'm moving back to eating the best fuel for my body and my brain likes it. For me that's almost zero sugar and low carb.
I'm working on being a great partner. Daily, I reflect on our interactions by typing them up, sometimes nicely, sometimes in bullet points. We're reading The Course of Love concurrently. We talk about things.
I'm working on being a great friend. For much of my adult life, I was terrible at this. The onus was with my friends to stay in touch with me. It's my turn to be the one who stays in touch and reaches out.
I'm working on being a great sister. That starts with being merely an average sister. One brother has started coming to dance so well be seeing each other more regularly. I've set up fortnightly calls with the other brother.
I'm working on being a great daughter. I don't know that I'm nowhere close to this but I think about it daily. There aren't many models for what being a great daughter looks like once you become an adult.
