Make The Last Moments Of 2018 Count

by - October 25, 2018

2018 has gone by so fast, hasn't it?


We're nearing November. Two months of 2018 are left and what a year it has been. I started my first "real" job; the job that is the start of my career. My relationship with Jesus is stronger than ever. I've learned so many lessons. I've grown so much. I've had moments of complete bliss, but also some disappointing moments, too.

The biggest journey of 2018 has been my journey to being the best I can be. I've been on this personal growth journey for a few months now and while I believe that personal growth is never-ending, I do believe that I know myself better than I ever have before.

I recently read "Girl, Wash Your Face" by Rachel Hollis and when I heard about her "Last 90 Days" challenge, I was all in. This challenge is basically making these last 90 days of the year count and rather than starting to work on ourselves when the new year comes, it is about starting right now. In this challenge, there are five things to really focus on.

1. Get up an hour earlier than you normally do and use the time for yourself.
2. Workout for at least thirty minutes.
3. Drink half of your body weight in ounces of water each day.
4. Give up one food category you know you shouldn't be eating.
5. Write down ten things you're grateful for every single day.

Before starting this, I was getting up earlier, working out, and drinking the water. I decided to give up fast food and I've been writing down ten things every single day and let me tell you... focusing on gratitude and the good things in your life rather than the negative changes your entire mindset for the better.

Even though I started my personal-growth journey before doing Rachel's challenge, this challenge has given me a community that I didn't have before. I've got support of other strong individuals that are working towards their best, most fulfilling life. They decided to get a head start on their plans for the new year.

Make these last moments of 2018 count. Work on yourself. Be present. Read some books. Take lots of photos. Show up in the lives of your loved ones. Focus on gratitude. Spread joy with others. Be kind. Get enough sleep. Be good to your body. Take that risk. Spend less time on your phone. Smile. Be happy. Love yourself.
