I haven’t done one of these “Looking Forward…” posts since February 2017, so I think it’s definitely time to talk about some of the exciting things on the horizon for me:
Today, I’m looking forward to my afternoon nap.
Ha! I have been so tired this week, and I think it might have to do with my goal of walking 10,000 steps every day. I just don’t think my body is used to that much movement! I’m asking more of my body than I have in a really long time, and it’s letting me know it needs some rest to repair itself. So, I’m definitely trying to listen to my body and this weekend, while busy, should also be full of some long naps and restful nights.
This weekend, I’m looking forward to kayaking for the first time.
I’ve never been kayaking, can you believe that? And I live right next door to a nature preserve that has kayak rentals! So, on Sunday, my mom, my brother, and I are going to this preserve to go kayaking. It’s part of my mom’s Christmas present (she wanted us to do an activity together) that she’s finally cashing in on. I hope it’s a fun day and that we have great weather!
Next month, I’m looking forward to my first therapy appointment.
I finally got in touch with a therapist and finally got an appointment scheduled! I am really, really looking forward to this appointment and I hope I click with this therapist. I’ve been trying to keep a list in my phone of all the things I want to talk about because I completely spaced when I was on the phone with her, scheduling the appointment. She asked why I was seeking therapy and I was all, “Uh… anxiety? Relationship problems? Family issues?” It was not my finest moment, that’s for sure. Thankfully, she sent me an online form where I was able to list out exactly why I was seeking therapy, and I was able to better organize my thoughts that way.
This year, I’m looking forward to getting my next tattoo.
I always knew I wanted to get a tattoo to commemorate my love for Dutch, but the problem was that I didn’t know where to get it on my body. I wanted it in a location that was easy to hide, but also where I could see it often. And then, one day, it hit me of exactly where to get it and now I keep picturing it there. So, I’m ready to get this tattoo and would probably go tomorrow to get it, if I could. It’s happening soon, though, and I can’t wait to show everyone when it’s done!
Next year, I’m looking forward to seeing the Grand Canyon in person.
I’m pretty stoked about this, and my mom is on board to make it our mother/daughter vacation for 2019. There will be lots to plan, but I’m really looking forward to that process. I just don’t think I can go another year without seeing this beauty for myself. It is time.
What’s something you’re looking forward to – big or small?
