2016 Goals Update #3 Clare

Financial responsibility AND finding a workout routine!

Exercise for purchases!! Worked it out with my Financial Coach today that I need to feel my purchases and not just in my wallet. I was walking by a store that had a knockoff brand that I LOVED 10 years ago. When I didn’t need to be a human turtle and carry everything with me and on my back. Daily. In other words it wasn’t practical. But, I reasoned with myself, it was cheap. I realized two things in this moment:
1) Impulse purchases and low dollar items are what are my downfall.
2) If I attach a physical responsibility to my monetary want, do I still want it? As in, was the bag worth $10 AND 10 push ups. Nope.  My desire to own that goes away.

Ok, I realize this isn’t the complete answer to my work out issue, or to my financial issue, but its maybe a step in the right direction.

Focusing on my relationship with myself:

I haven’t touched on this one yet in my updates–partially because I sort of do it and don’t know I’m doing it.  However, I should report.  It is now a habit to have face time, as in be in the same location with, a friend.

LL and I are picking books for our podcast that are in the personal growth/self-help arena, and I’m focusing on other things in my life that make me stronger as a single person.  So I’ll be a part of a pair, not a half a person until I find someone.

Cleaning and Organizing:

I went through a lot of papers that were just sitting around my room.  I often times open mail, and keep the part that is important and then “refile” it in my room in a pile.  I need to figure out a better way to do this… if you have a good idea on filing papers that I just need to look at in a week or so when I have time to actually read them, and them will toss or actually file them, please leave a comment or email your suggestion to liveclarelesley@gmail.com
