Being a rooster

We are three weeks into the new year, but it's never too late to implement new strategies to make sure you're the most confident version of yourself. This year is the Chinese year of the rooster, and there are specific qualities and characteristics associated with this year. Those qualities include being honest, observant, hardworking, punctual, and ambitious. I'm going to share a few ways I plan on embodying the rooster because it's good for accountability and inspiration!
Think it through.

You know how sometimes people will ask you a question and you tell a little white lie without really thinking about it? Somebody tells you they like your shirt and ask where you got it and how much it cost. I usually respond by saying, "I got it at Old Navy - it was on sale!" Adding the "on sale!" bit makes me feel less likely to be judged for splurging on something, but it's a pretty pointless thing to do. Or if somebody asks you to go somewhere you really don't want to go, so you make up a reason.
All these little white lies are pretty pointless. This year, I plan to work on being more honest in everything I say and really thinking about the things I say before I say them.
Seeing, not just watching.

When I'm in my car I have to pay really close attention to a certain area of my windshield, because the way the car was made there's a huge blind spot that makes it hard to see when cars are turning left from oncoming traffic. I have to remember to see everything about me and not just watch. I need to be more observant. I have so many of these blind spots in my life, as well! What I am going to work on this year is appreciating the little things in my life, and remembering them. I'm going to write them down and keep them all together, so when I'm feeling sad or overwhelmed or when it's one of those weeks, I can go through the little joys that make up so much of the big joy in my life.
Make hard work seem like you're hardly working.

My job is often overwhelming. I work at a doctor's office and it should come as no surprise that people really want to be taken care of when they're sick. I know when I go to the doctor I expect a level of professionalism, and it's a bonus when the people who are taking care of you really make it obvious that they care about you and that you're not being an inconvenience for breaking your leg. This year my goal is to smile more often than frown, and figure out more ways to multitask.
Want it, and make it happen.

Like everybody else, I want to lose weight this year. I've talked about that in this post already, but it's never a bad time to update on your progress and share what's been working for you. I've found that losing weight really comes down to how I manage my time. I need to use my evenings for a jog on the treadmill, some lunch prep for the next day, and time to slather on my nighttime lotions and potions before snuggling on the couch with Keith and binge watching more Dexter. I also need to limit myself to one or two episodes so I can go to sleep at a reasonable time. If I stay up too late, I'll be grouchy at work, and my above goal of being a pleasant face to see at work will never happen! Doing this will make me feel better about myself which will make it so much easier to be joyful the next day, as well. (See, it all comes together!) 
However, it's important to make sure these goals are attainable. So, I can't beat myself up for every time I mess up. If I have a late night at work and don't get a jog in, that's ok! If I decide the jog is important but then can't make our lunches, that's okay! Keith can take some soup or make a sandwich and I can come home to make a salad, which is I often end up doing. You can't do it all, but you can and should do some.
Be on time for your self.

None of the above goals will happen if I'm not strict about when I go to bed and how I go to bed. This isn't a selfish goal, even though it might seem like it! Going to bed early ensures that I get a restful night of sleep and that I'm not a grouch. Going to sleep on a comfortable mattress gives me a better night of sleep so I truly do feel refreshed in the morning. It makes it easier to stop hitting my snooze button (sometimes even getting up BEFORE my alarm!) a million times and therefore makes my mornings less hectic. I can have fun putting my makeup on and then I feel good going into work and getting things done.
2017 is going to be our year. Who is us? ALL OF US! This year is going to be wonderful in so many different ways. Who knew a rooster could help you accomplish all these goals? Who knew a rooster was the key to success in 2017?
Special thanks to leesa, a company who clearly believes that accomplishing your goals and becoming a more confident person begins with a restful night of sleep! Learn more about their mattresses here.

  1. So apparently being a rooster in the year of the rooster is bad luck so I'm feeling a little nervous about this year since I was born in '93. It's funny, though, because gold is my favorite color and 5 is my lucky number. I'm feeling these priorities, though.

    Also I completely agree that time management can throw off your entire health or weight loss routine. Everything is so connected. Too much Netflix = not enough sleep = no energy = no work out and bad food choices. This is something I'm trying to be better about, too. Even though it's 1:30am...

    1. I want to tell the world of this man and his powers and how he helped me brought back my ex husband with just a spell within 3 days.This is a true story,but very brief. believe it or take it.
      Few years ago when i gave birth to my last daughter, my husband started coming home late.before i could know what was happening he stopped coming home. to cut the long story short, when i did my findings i found out that he left because of another woman.I was very disappointed at him infact i felt my life was over because of the love i have for him.how would i cope with bills and the responsibilities of my three daughters. i tried so much to reignite our love and bring him back to me but it never worked.
      I was online one day when i read about a man called SPIRITUALIST DR OGIDI just as you are reading now , my instinct immediately told me that he was my solution.
      i contacted him and he helped me to cast the spell that brought back my husband. To make the story short my husband came back to me and my kids within 3 days.my family is back and happy once again.
      I need to share this testimony to help other women like me out there. contact him for spell cast now on this mail address spiritualistdrogidi@gmail.com or whats app him +2348124528145

  7. My name is Terry: I was so tired of mistrust towards my girlfriend of three years. Even though we live happily some days but she still give me reasons to keep suspecting her. The problem is she likes older men and also finds it difficult to say no to a stalker, but we love each other and cant let go. I was really suffering inside for not being able to trust the woman I want to marry, I cant even forgive her for what she did August of last year for going on secret vacation with her boss.
    As I share this testimony, my girl has finally changed after Dr. Wakina intervened by healing her for good. She was cursed by her step mother to live a wasted life. Nobody knew this, even her until Dr. Wakina revealed and freed her. We have been living in peace for three months now. The spell cast on her destroyed the curse within four days. I think Ive done something good that she appreciates once in our relationship.

  10. WOW!!!
    This is the most wonderful thing i have ever experience and i need to share this great testimony.
    About how i get my ex back after a breakup.
    I never believed it, because i never heard nor learn anything about it before.
    My name is Minerva D. Taylor from UK
    My boyfriend of a 2year just broke up with me and am 28 weeks pregnant. I have cried my self to sleep most of the nights and don’t seem to concentrate during lectures sometimes I stay awake almost all night thinking about him and start to cry all over again. Because of this I end up not having energy for my next day’s classes, my attendance has dropped and am always in uni and on time. Generally he is a very nice guy, he ended it because he said we were arguing a lot and not getting along. He is right we’ve been arguing during the pregnancy a lot. After the break up I kept ringing him and telling him I will change. I am in love with this guy and he is the best guy I have ever been with. I’m still hurt and in disbelief when he said he didn’t have any romantic feelings towards me anymore that hurt me faster than a lethal syringe. He texts me once and then mainly to check up on how am doing with the pregnancy, he is supportive with it but it’s not fair on me, him texting me as I just want to grieve the pain and not have any stress due to the pregnancy. i was really upset and i needed help, so i searched for help online and I came across a website that suggested that Dr Adams can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he told me what to do and i did it then he did a spell for me. 28 hours later, my boyfriend came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I and my boyfriend are living together happily again.. All thanks to Dr Adams. as it is a place to resolve marriage/relationship issues, do you want to be sure if your spouse is being faithful to you or Do you want your Ex to come back to you Contact.: E-mail: Adamsusmanultimate@gmail.com or call/Whats-app: +2348160153829 save your crumbling home and change of grades its 100% safe. I suggest you contact him. He will not disappoint you.
