22 Jan Brave Enough to Be It
The new dawn blooms as we free it
For there is always light,
if only we’re brave enough to see it
If only we’re brave enough to be it
– Amanda Gorman
Now that President Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris are in the White House, we can all breathe a collective, yet tense sigh of relief.
It’s time to stop watching the news and start braving the brand new world.
It’s time to finally focus on your goals for 2021!
What dreams will you set free?
Who will you be brave enough to be?
My trick for setting up goals is to make sure they are SMART.
SMART is an acronym
S – Specific
M – Measurable
A – Attainable
R – Realistic
T – Timely
A SMART goal has a much greater chance of being accomplished than a general goal.
A broad goal like practice meditation in 2021 can be constructed into a SMART goal.
Meditate five min, three times a week x 52 = 720 minutes by Dec 31, 2020. I will measure and track using the Insight Timer, Waking Up, and Calm app.
What are your goals for 2021?
Do share how you will make them SMART!
“I know you’ve been kicked down
Slept on, let down, faith gone
Waited for too long for somethin’
to lean on (lean on)
You feel weak, just be strong (ooh)
Deep breath, stay calm
If you just press on, press on, press on”
– BETTER DAYS
“Then victory won’t lie in the blade but in all the bridges we’ve made.”
