How does one increase their flexibility? It’s a good question, and one I intend to find the answer too. I am not merely speaking of physical flexibility, I am also going to try and expand my flexibility with my emotional health, my financial wealth, and my physical self. Did ya catch that rhyme? 😉
Here’s what the plan is:
  • Yoga; something I truly love, but don’t prioritize. I want to bring a regular practice into my life because I know it will help with feeling present, and more calm and centered. It also helps with the bending and stretching of my limbs. Because I have a do-it-all attitude, I am going to be letting go of my Crossfit Membership and instead put it towards a Yoga Membership. I will also still have a Gym Membership (thinking about switching to the Blackfalds Gym, Total Health), and my Home-Gym.
  • Financial; Seriously, as a nurse, I make some decent coin. And seriously, as an adult, I am way too good at spending. All of it. And then some. I really want to get better at managing my finances and building up a bit of a security fund for those just-in-case moments. I plan on paying off half of my student loan by the end of 2014 (not an easy feat, but hopefully it can be done). I am also going to start putting aside 10% of everything I make, and if I find that is too overwhelming, 5% to start, working up to 10% by the end of the year.
  • Emotionally; I tend to be an all-or-nothing, black-or-white, this-or-that-not-both, type of person. It can be a good thing, but it can also hinder me. I want to get better at letting things go, rather than having things so concrete. I think Yoga will also help with this :)

So, that’s the Grand Plan for the year. I worked my butt off to get some self acceptance flowing through these veins. It feels awesome and it makes me feel lighter emotionally even though I am a bit heavier physically 😉 Now its time to get pliable, malleable, and friggen financially stable!

Bring it on Fourteen. Bring. It. On.
