I don't even know where to start here. It's been months since I last wrote, as my life has taken a complete new direction. Since October I've been adjusting and adapting to all the newness in my life, and now that things have finally settled down a bit, I can begin to make time for me again.
In November, I started a new job at Lululemon. It began as a seasonal postion, and since then, I've been hired on permanently. The last 3 months of my life have been a whirlwind of change, but all in a good way. I'm loving this job. Every day is a new challenge. There are high expectations, but also tons of support to help you get there. The environment is positive, the people are wonderful, and your personal growth is inevitable. All this, coupled with the amazing clothing and a heavy emphasis on health and fitness, makes for one sweet gig.
If you know anything at all about the Lululemon culture, you'll know that they love goal-setting. This is something that I haven't had much experience with in the past, but goals and I are about to get friendly. Ultimately, we are to have a 10 year vision for our ideal life, with goals set for 1, 5 and 10 years, in the categories of Personal, Health and Career. All of us will be working with our store's goal-setting team over the next little while to develop our vision and how we plan to get there. For now, we've started out smaller, deciding on a one-month goal for January. We've teamed up with a buddy from the store so we can keep each other accountable in achieving that goal. In February, we'll do the same.
I'm making lots of progress on my January goal. In fact, I'm spending most of today working on it! Maybe I'll share the before and after pics at the end of the month...
