Beautiful Me

I’ve made resolutions around the beginning of the year for the last couple of years. My first try was my greeting card per day. That lasted until we moved out of our house and started traveling full time so maybe about 6 months. (Feel free to peruse the blog for the results.) Last year, I decided to kick caffeine. The specific goal was to kick the addiction, lower my soda intake, and drink more water. I can say that was a complete success. I have tea and soda now and then, but I no longer get those caffeine headaches. I’ve definitely increased my water intake too. This year I’m starting my own personal campaign: 2014 is all about me!

Some of you may know that I’ve been married for over 10 years. I’ve learned pretty well how to take care of things: my husband, our abode, our dogs, etc. What I’ve not really learned to do is take care of myself. I’ve never been on my own so I’ve always had someone to say “shower” or “eat.” I’ve also been lucky enough to have someone saying how beautiful I am. Well, it’s time I start saying it and believing it too. There’s more to me than just looks of course, but it’s up to me to pursue what I want and find what’s beautiful today.

If you’d like to follow along, check out Instagram (sbowerman) or Facebook and click the hashtag “beautifulme”. I don’t know how much writing I’ll be doing, but feel free to subscribe to the blog as well. In pursuit of my own personal goals, which I’ve been putting off for one reason or another, I am enrolled in classes at Yavapai College to continue my education. I hope to become an educator myself so any tips regarding that would be welcome and appreciated.

Here’s to a new year with a new focus and hopefully the ability to balance it all.
