I want to write this post as an explanation for my absence.
For those of you who know me, it probably comes as a huge shock that I’m procrastinating and not following through with this blog. Emily? Not on top of things? Not doing everything a day early? What?
Well, really, it comes down to my priorities. This blog is very important to me. I feel as though I have a lot to say in regards to personal development, and I desperately want to share it with you all. However, I am currently abroad, studying a new language and pushing myself to my intellectual and emotional limits in many ways.
Now Chalene Johnson, a woman I admire in so many ways, is very adament about the importance of establishing your priorities and making sure all of your goals and actions are aligned with your priorities. If not, you’re going down the wrong path.
On the train ride to Córdoba, Spain, after traveling for a month before my study program, I thought long and hard about my priorities and wrote them out in a concrete way. I am going to share them with you right now:
- BE TRUE TO MYSELF and love myself exactly as I am.
- Always learn. Always grow.
- Help others be the best that they can be
- Be a support/light for others who are suffering.
