Have you ever had big plans and felt like you finally knew where you were heading, just to have life laugh sadistically in your face? How do you handle these times when you get off track? What I see most often is anger and self-flagellation, and often a guilt-ridden path back to where we think we should be.
Luckily, there is a better way. In the last 14 months, I have been: not exercising consistently, working crazy hours, neglecting friendships, gaining weight, letting my blog and podcast collect cobwebs, and feeling overall stressed about the limited number of hours in the day. In the last 14 months, I have also: fallen in love, gotten engaged, bought a house, started a new role in my company that brings me immense fulfillment and great experience, traveled to new places to volunteer my time, and felt overwhelmed with gratitude that my life is turning out this way.
