Year of You: Reflect

Back at the start of the year, I set up a little project for you all to join in over on Instagram, The Year of You.

It was a free month-long project to help build up your confidence and mindset so you would have a smashing year.

While I was focusing on you, the one thing I forgot about, was myself.

So I’ve decided to give my responses to this project, right here each Monday.

With a new year, it’s a great opportunity to reflect on the year gone by.

What worked?⁣

The best thing I did for 2018 was invested in a training plan to get my half marathon PB.

Sure there are heaps of free training plans out there, and sure they could have gotten me my goal.  However, I know me.  I know that I can get lazy and be half-arsed about it, and be like ‘Nah I’ll do this instead’.

By following a plan that I paid for meant that I had to keep accountable. It put me out of my comfort zone.  It proved that I was actually capable of doing more.

What failed?⁣

Staring the house build.  The amount of red tape, especially through the council. It was delay after delay after delay.

What would you do differently?⁣

I like to think that everything happens for a reason. So why I would have loved to have started the build in 2018, I was able to focus on other things, like de-cluttering.
